Which are the five best BB Creams available right here in the US? That’s one of the most commonly asked questions on Musings of a Muse. Folks are curious which brands are putting out solid BB Creams formulas and which I’ve actually liked that are readily available here in the US. I’ve tried plenty that much is true but many don’t always impressed me so I made a list of five BB Creams I actually love and think are the very best of the best. BB Creams I personally use daily and enjoy the formula of.
So here’s five you might not have tried. Five that are readily available on counters now that you can purchase right here in the US without running around hunting out online stores, dealing with airmail fees, etc…
Take a look!
Surprise! CVS (also available at Ulta and other locations) has the BB Cream you’ve been waiting for. It’s creamy, it’s pigmented, it brightens (and promises to whiten with Vitamin C) and it includes anti-aging benefits with an SPF 20 to protect skin. It’s Lumene’s new BB Cream. Available in two shade selections Lumene’s BB Cream is probably one of the better BB Creams I’ve run across that’s available at local drugstores. The creamy consistency, ease of blending, and brightening formula creates a beautiful, flawless finish on skin.
Possibly one of the worst BB Cream offenders in the US but still the best I’ve tried…irony! It’s sheer, it contains absolutely no SPF, and is only available in a single shade but the creamy consistency, lightweight texture, easy to apply formula and beautiful finish makes this one of my very favorite BB Creams. Since it’s so sheer it’s ideal for many skin tones as it offers only the minimal coverage but it manages to perfect skin and add such a perfect flawlessness to skin that I can’t but mark it as a favorite even with so many things against it!
Crazy expensive but worth every single less dime, 3LAB’s BB Cream is rich, creamy, and pigmented. Available in three self adjusting shades it protects skin with an SPF 40 while treating fine lines, minimizing discolorations, and brightening skin with a perfect, flawless finish. The creaminess of the product is spot for traditional Korean BB Creams now only if the price was as similar.
I call it the beginners guide to BB Creams but Clinique’s BB Cream is anything but. It isn’t as pigmented as a true BB Cream should be but it is a beautiful gel-like consistency that absorbs easily and eases most minor problems like redness, darkness, dullness, and lackluster skin. I’d call it more of a tinted moisturizer with BB Cream benefits.
They say save the best for last and Diorsnow BB Cream is the best. With a whopping SPF 50 and a creamy, rich texture that not only brightens skin and conceals both major and minor issues with a pigmented color pay off this cream also treats dark spots over time and enhances your skin’s overall radiance so skin is brighter and more beautiful with each use. I love this stuff and can’t recommend it enough!
