There was a time when we used to wish for BB creams to come to India and now there are so many that it is confusing which one to choose. Maybelline was the first one to enter into the market and after a while who market entered into the bandwagon.
Being a blogger for years I have experimented with lot many BB creams and few days back I saw someone asking for BB cream suggestions on a forum.I thought why not do a post on it and help everyone decide which BB cream is the best suited to them .
Lets start with Maybelline BB cream
Maybelline BB cream (- Maybelline has three shades in it and it suits oily skin. Maybelline BB cream does not last for long. Problem with maybelline is that it gives a bit of a whitecaste which takes time in settling down. It gives a bit of coverage but won’t hide dark circles or blemishes but will definitely brighten up your skin tone. If you want better coverage then using a compact over it will be better.All in all its not a bad bb cream at all giving good coverage, is hydrating and is available in three shades.Can be bought from Purplle here
Revlon Photoready BB Cream (Price 550 for 30ml) – This one is quite hydrating more than what Maybelline BB cream is. Coverage is sheer and bends out nicely. But this one is more for dry skin girls because after using it my face got oilier .It doesn’t have much of coverage and neither was it able to conceal my pores. Dry skin beauties with no open pores problem is going to like it. It will give them a healthy glow and will smoothen skin like a primer .
Ponds BB Cream (INR 125 for 18gm) – This one is available in one shade with not much of lasting power .It stays for around 3-4 hours and shade is just too yellow.So if you have fair skin tone then its not going to suit you.Those with skin tone on the darker side may like it but there is bit of blending problem with this one .So I am not a big fan of this .You need a moisturizer under neath it otherwise it kind of settles down on the pores.You can buy it from here
Colorbar BB Cream (Price 550 for 29gms) – Available in three shades. This one is considered to be great with those who have oily and acne prone skin.It doesn’t white caste and has SPF 20. It last for 5-6 hours and gives good coverage and conceals bit of acne marks.All in all a good product for oily skin tone and interesting thing is that company claims it has no Parabens.

Deborah Milano 5 in 1 BB Cream (INR 395 for 550ml) – I initially found this cream awesome.Its hydrating, gave nice coverage and smoothes and primes skin.It’s moisturize skin and evens out the skin tone but the saddest thing is it breaks me out .I generally don’t suffer from Acne problem but this one was an exceptional case.I dread using it now.So even if you have dry skin it might break you out so its better to avoid it.You can read Shweta’s review on this here
Garnier BB Cream – (Price 99 for 18gms) – I didn’t like this one much.Initially there was lot of hullabaloo as it was among the first ones to enter into the Indian market but now that we have more options I realised that it isn’t great at all…It’s sheer in coverage and available in just one shade.It gives dewy finish and there is hardly any coverage and what is a BB cream without a coverage its better to use a moisturiser instead .If it suits you then you can buy from here
L’Oreal Paris La Creme True Match BB Cream(Price 550 for 30ml) – Available in three shades this one gives bit of cooling feeling after application.It’s sheer and can not be build up and is quite light weight.Staying power of the product is not that great so all in all its not a great product and meant for only perfect skin which just needs a bit of glow .You can read review by Bipasha here You can buy this from here
Misha BB Cream -This one is not available in India and was gifted to me by a friend. It gave me white caste but blended out nicely. Coverage of this is not that great and hydration is kind of OK.It didn’t break me out but I wasn’t impressed with this one much. People with lighter skin tone may like it more.You can read my review here .
Vedic line BB Cream (Price 250) – This one makes skin oily after 3-4 hours and is low on SPF. Wont give much of coverage and its not moisturizing enough for dry skin tones. Great thing about this BB cream is that its paraben free, dermatologically tested, Mineral oil/Petroleum jelly free and Phenoxythenol free.It’s available in one shade only.All in all its not an exciting BB cream.You can read review here. and buy it from here
Kyra Aloevera Blemish Balm BB Cream (INR 399 for 35ml) – This one gives matte finish and is not available in India.This one is more like a thick foundation which blends out effortlessly.It doesn’t leave a white cast but its not that moisturising. Kyra BB is available only in one shade. You can read the detailed review here
Phew! So now you can chose which one will be best suited for you
