Looks like the BB Cream market in the West isn’t slowing down this year with major brands releasing their version of the BB Cream.
1. Yves Saint Laurent All In One BB Cream
An all in one cream which uses optics to correct the skin’s imperfections. A fluid and light texture which is easy to apply. However might not be hydrating enough for those with dry skin. Available from 25th February 2013 onwards. Retails at 45euros.
2. Dior Diorskin Nude BB Cream
Dior has released 3 BB Creams – the Hydralife which was a disaster, the Diorsnow which was for the Asian market, and the Dior Prestige which was way overpriced. I think they finally hit gold with their latest BB Cream and has learnt from their past mistakes! This BB Cream is quite amazing – however I wish they had a shade in between their 02 and 03. Comes in 4 shades to fit all ethnicity. Full review to come soon. Only SPF 10.
Diorskin Nude BB Crème provides the benefits of skincare and makeup in a fresh and airy formula. Enhanced with mineralized floral water and a blend of antioxidants, it moisturizes, smoothes, protects, and corrects skin with sheer coverage. Available in four expert shades to match every skintone, the complexion is illuminated with a unique fresh glow and dewy finish. Priced at 42euros.
3. Vichy Idealia BB Cream
A 6-in-1 BB Cream made for all skin types even the most sensitive ones. A hydrating BB Cream which has a fluid texture that sinks into the skin immediately. A hydrating BB Cream that hydrates the skin throughout the day while covering the skin’s imperfections. Available from April 2013 at 21.45 euros.
4. Kiehls Actively Correcting Beautifying BB Cream
Finally a Western BB Cream with a high SPF! This BB Cream from Kiehl’s corrects irregularities of your skin’s tone, unifies and protects the skin against UV rays while hydrating it the whole day. The texture is apparently a little too compact. It also apparently has a matt finish. However, the BB Cream couldn’t last the whole day… Available in March at the price of 29 euros.
5. Clarins BB Skin Perfecting Cream
Rich in natural actives which unifies, revitalize and protects the skin. A light textured, with a refreshing scent. Apparently it’s an ‘amazing’ product so I’m definitely trying this out. Available from March 2013 onwards at 33 euros.
