I am looking for a BB cream that will make my skin look naturally amazing!! grin

I am using the Garnier oil free one for combination skin at the moment but it seems a bit yellow tinged. It's OK, but I want a miracle product that possibly doesn't exist

I have tried Dr Jart (Premium I think?) but I didn't like the thick texture, it also made me look shiny. The La Roche Posay Effaclar BB Blur was a little too mattifying so I've put that away until summer.

I am 41, pale (NC20), combination skin but quite clear, dark blond hair and green eyes. I think I have a warm skin tone but I'm not sure. I'd like to spend up to about £20/£25.

Any recommendations would be gratefully received!

I use rimmel insta flawless which is a brightening tint. It's lovely and evens me out without looking heavy smile

I use the Green Tea Nude Cover BB Cream. It costs £26. Lovely though and one tube lasts for ages. I bought this one in September and still have lots left.

I use Natio which I buy from Tesco but it is available online, never seen it stocked anywhere else on the high street. Got my mum and my niece into it as well, lovely natural look and feel

I know it's not a BB but the soap and glory CC cream (in the shiny silver bottle) is amazing, I was using full coverage max factor foundation and but have given it up since buying this.

I really like boots no 7 bb cream - improves my skin significantly without looking/feeling made up

Garnier one is very good. I think it's about £8.

Rimmel bb matte (purple tube). It's amazing!

Erborian. It is fantastic. Comes in two shades, I use the one for paler skins and works great on my very very pale skin.

Feels great, makes me looking fresh and I have had two people ask me what I am using so they could get it too.

Space NK or order online.

My favourite is Lierac, but difficult to buy in Britain (widely available all across Europe though). It can be found on Amazon, but is more expensive buying it that way.
I also use Kiehl's as a decent alternative - a little goes a long way.

Thanks everyone. Bumping for any more as this is about to drop off the first page.

Guitargirl where do you buy the green tea one from? I found the company's website but that particular one isn't on there anymore, they have two others instead.

Guitargirl Sun 22-Jan-17 16:58:42

Noooo, I'll be gutted if they've discontinued it. It gives a really nice finish and I've had lots of nice comments about my skin when am wearing it.

I heard someone on YouTube raving about it which is what drew me to it in the first place. She had bought hers online (direct from the website I think) but she also said they stock it in Harvey Nichols. I went along to the Harvey Nichols store, they didn't have any on the shop floor but they asked and a sales assistant brought some from the stock room. I wish I had stocked up now but it's quite pricey and I didn't really want to shell out for more than one at a time.

Second the body shop

Clinique BB and CC creams are brilliant. Very light but good coverage.

Not a BB but similar, I too love Clinique CC!

Hersetta427 Mon 23-Jan-17 22:19:42

Not bb but the borjois cc cream is lovely.

GiddyGiddyGoat Mon 23-Jan-17 22:40:01

Bobbi Brown. Very good and spf. 35

I love the seventeen n & it's cheap as chips, nearly as good as my Eve Lom TM. Also like eborian & Estée Lauder cc cream. I hear the chanel one is good too

I use one from Bourjois (called something with '123' in the name) - don't know if that's the same one recommended by a pp, as I'm not sure if it's a BB or a CC cream. It's really lovely, medium very natural coverage and better than some of the much higher-end ones I've tried.

I buy mostly premium beauty but am now an absolute convert to Sleek cc cream, great coverage for £9 x
