BB Cream. Get some.
BB Creams are amazing. Once you hit your 30’s you start to wish you would have listen more about wearing sunscreen. Wrinkles, uneven skin tone, dark circles, and other things start to pop up. Problem solved.
Depending on the BB Cream you use, the product can work as a moisturizer, serum, toner, primer, concealer, foundation, eye cream and/or highlighter. Not only are they time-savers, but they’re money-savers too. I have tried many of these…I have a favorite cheap brand and a favorite expensive brand.
Garnier Skin Renew: This BB cream is the best of the drug store brands. It will run you about $8, for 2.5 ounces and has a SPF of 15. It is lightweight so it doesn’t feel heavy like some creams do. (I buy this when I have a “poor” month)
Smashbox Camera Ready: This BB cream is absolutely the best. It feels velvety, looks amazing, and has a SPF of 35. You don’t need anything else on your fac. It runs about $45 for a 1.0 ounce bottle. You only need a pea size amount (unless you have a giant face…neigh), so it will last. I have considered not buying groceries for my family in exchange for this wonderfulness. I said considered.
I broke a bottle of pink nail polish in a bag with the BB cream on the right. Don’t expect your Garnier to look like this at Walgreens.
I wondered what made the Smashbox so much better. I did a little research. meaning I looked at the ingredients and googled them. Smashbox has 7.5% octinoxate, while the Garnier only has 4%. (octinoxate is sunscreen so that makes sense) The Smashbox also has Octisalate, and oxybenzone. (more sunscreen and sunscreen) They both have titanium dioxide…Smashbox has less. Don’t even google titanium dioxide. yikes.
I guess you could just put on 3 organic sunscreen types and mix a little dirt for the color and you have you some vegan BB cream. (I’d like to see Justin Timberlake do that one)
I like meat, titanium chips, and not having to make stuff though.
