I used to love Boots No 7 BB cream for oily/normal skin and now they've discontinued it sad Can anyone suggest an alternative?

Anyone? Or am I the only one who ever used it (which might explain why it’s been discontinued!)

I love IT cosmetics oil free cc cream. Good coverage without being heavy and lasts well. Although I also love Eborian bb cream too. I don’t know if it’s oil free but it certainly doesn’t make my skin shiny or greasy!

Not the only one, I'm devastated! The normal/dry one is actually quite good too, which I don't think they've discontinued. I've used it before and it's been fine on my oily/combination skin.

I've coped by buying a two-year supply on ebay! I was thinking of trying the Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint as a potential replacement.

Whaaaat they’ve discontinued it? FFS how annoying, that has been my go-to for years. I tried the IT one but it was way too thick and orangey for me.

I looked on eBay, but they didn’t have it in “light”

Update - I just managed to find one tube of it on eBay. But once it’s gone it’s gone, and I’m just delaying the inevitable … !

Second vote for Erborian CC cream. And they now do a "water" version which may be even lighter (not that the normal one is greasy at all).

I like Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue.

I have a drawer full of them as last time I bought online it said it was being discontinued. Probably have enough for a year or two, but following with interest for when I run out
