BB creams are suddenly everywhere — from giant signs in Sephora windows to the best real estate in the drugstores. The craze started in Asia, but now it's available all over the world.

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.
Let's start!:)
 Garnier BB creme - it's perfect for those who have normal/dry skin. Therefore I love its scent, although it tends to be a bit shiny and maybe it takes longer than usual while the face absorbs it properly. Frankly, you cannot expect a great concealment, cause it's more like cream you use daily. But if you have perfect or almost perfect skin, this cream will hide small spots or blemishes. Unfortunately, cream is a bit too thick for summer, but it still has SPF15. Well, talking about the price, Garnier is more expensive than Maybelline.




























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:)





Love,
Milda

  1. Nieko nesu girdejus apie BB kremus, bet pamacius CLINIQUE nusprendziau is karto parasyti. Tiek as, tiek mama naudojam clinique kosmetika ir galiu pasakyt, kad ji verta ne tik savo pinigu, bet ir geros rekomendacijos. Ypac mums patinka pudra. Grazus kaspinukai :*

  3. Turiu aš garnier šitą, tamsų :)
    Tai spalva visai gera, bet šiaip kaip priemonė veido odai manęs nesužavėjo, turiu problematišką odą, tai toks jausmas, kad dar prastesnė pasidarė...Nors vaizdas tikrai neblogas buvo, lygi oda, ir nebetokia sausa kaip įprastai :)

    ir žavingi bateliai labai!

  5. Maybelline išties nelabai ką paslepia, bet man asmeniškai jis suteikia kažkokį matinį efektą. Kažkokia švaresnė atrodo:) Tikrai šaunus produktas!
