Clinique has joined the realms of BB Creams being released in North America. Thus far we’ve seen BB Creams from Smashbox, Boscia, Dr. Jart, and MAC.
I’ve noticed a few main differences with BB Creams here in the US versus the many I’ve tried here from Asia, these differences include:
- Lower SPF (15 to 30 but no higher)
- Lack of anti-aging ingredients
- No whitening properties
- No Acne, skin treatment ingredients
- Lack of pigment
Of course, these things are to me what makes up a good Asian BB Cream however, North American standards are somewhat different particularly when addressing whitening ingredients, this is understandable and the lack of such an option in our BB Creams can be overlooked but other things such as anti-aging ingredients, lower SPF, etc…is rather disappointing.
Clinique released it’s BB Cream in Asia several months ago and most recently we are able to purchase it here in the US.
Let’s take a look at Clinique Age Defense BB Cream and see if it lives up to Asian standards.
Maybelline recently released their new Color Sensational Pop Sticks to a great big hooray from me. I was so excited when I found a display of these at my local drugstore and to add to the boon of that discovery they were also marked at $4.79 each! Yay budget find!
Visions of a better budget versions of DuWop Iced Teas danced through my head.
Were they any good?
Here’s the last of the Summer Wine so to speak…!
