Why Have I Been Choosing BB Cream Over Foundation?


I always like trying out new products every now and then and then I get completely and utterly obsessed and don’t use any other products. I have been through periods of just dabbling with concealer, to wear foundations that were way too dark *CRINGE don’t even mention it!!* and to using different types of bases.

As you can tell from the title of this blog I…. (then didn’t save my post and have to re-write it… FFS) have been using BB cream lately! It has been SOOOOOO hot in the UK for the past 6 weeks ~ which is ironic because as I am writing this it is raining ~ but to wear a full face of makeup without sweating it off is impossible.

I have literally gone from wearing loads of makeup to very nearly none in the space of a few weeks. It has conquered my fear of wearing little or no makeup in public #proud.


But when it’s nearly 30 degrees everyday and I am sweating my tits off I don’t need foundation or concealer to clog my pores and cause my skin to go into a crisis. Hence why BB cream, for when I have been going out or taking photos, has been my heavennnnn.

Specifically I have the << Garnier Original BB Cream >>, and admittedly mine is quite old and used but it shows how much I love it right?? It is slightly dark for my skin tone but now I have a bit of a tan its the only thing that matches. As its oil based it matches my dry skin but if you have oily skin then you might need a powder on top of it to set it.

I love using the BB cream because it is really light on my skin and as a light coverage so looks really natural on my skin. I have been trying to avoid a full face look because in summer the natural and bare-faced look is beauttttt! I mean sand and foundation is not a good mix right???

I find it so easy to blend out as well, I just use a damp beauty blender. It has SPF in it too so I will defo be taking it on my holidays!

Have you ever used BB cream??

    I’m definitely thinking about making the transfer to BB cream! It is so odd for me to not have a lot of makeup on but in this heat it is literally unbearable. This was a great, helpful post! x

    I definitely think I need to start using BB cream: it sounds amazing! I have really been struggling with wearing foundation in this heat too and BB cream sounds like the perfect solution- but I will admit that I have also gradually started to not wear a lot of makeup in public and I feel SO much better about doing that than I ever used to do, yay!
