Beauty: rewiev of BB creams7.20.2012
I own two of them, but in my things-to-buy list are two more: one by Smashbox and other by Clinique. As you probably understood, not only I am a huge fan of these amazing cremes, but most of the beauty editors are as well!
Anyway,BB stands for "Beauty Balm" or "Blemish Balm" depending on the formula, and they're basically tinted moisturizers with skin care ingredients and SPF built in.
Maybelline Dream freshh BB - it fits perfectly for oily skin. Face absorbs it quickly and it has no smell. Unfortuntaly, the coverage of Maybelline is worse than Garnier. It simply doesn't hide nothing at all, but this cream is perfect for summer! It will not make your face shiny, that's why I use it now:) It also has SPF 30, which is extremely important. One more great thing about the product - Maybelline offers wider variety of shades - it has 3 numbers: light, normal, dark. Even though I am kinda tanned, I still use light :) Another advantage of it - price, it's cheaper than Garnier.
Overall, they both have their pros and cons, it depends on what you want and need! But I personally prefer Garnier. Let me know, which one you liked more:)
P.S. I am sharing with you my little DIY! I remade my balerinas :) My dog ruined balerina's ribbons, so I made new ones and I am pretty happy with the result. It's looks much better now:)
