Hot summer days call for minimal makeup, but that doesn’t always mean we want to compromise on our coverage. Here are some of the top BB and CC creams, as rated by the Beauty Crew members, that’ll give you radiant, flawless skin without weighing you down.
IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream with SPF 50+
“It's like you get all the benefits of a full face of foundation without the heaviness and it takes only a few minutes to apply.
It feels magnificent on your skin. There is no caking, or build up in fine lines. It's like having a veil of perfection and protection over your skin. This will be a must have in my beauty bag from now on.” - Tara
L’Oréal Paris Nude Magique BB Cream
“Nude Magique is one of my favourite BB creams. I love having some coverage due to acne scarring but hate the heavy feeling of oily concealers. I love to use this as my everyday makeup look, with a little concealer for spots and powder on my oily areas it gives me great coverage during my busy work day.” – Katherine
Estée Lauder Revitalizing Supreme Global Anti-Aging CC Creme
“Wow. That's the first word that comes to mind, followed closely by OMG. My skin was bright, even, radiant, smooth and glowing like a candle from within. It was easy to blend in, one thin coat was more than enough, two if you want even better coverage and results. The colour was perfect for my white, pale, almost Edward Cullen vampire skin tone. It came off with one swipe of a cotton pad soaked in garnier micellar water and it is almost better than foundation but even better for that no makeup look that everyone seems to want these days.” – Jordana
Garnier Skin Naturals BB Cream Sensitive
“The light coverage hides most of the imperfections on my face, combined with my concealer, I really like the result. It is easy to blend and the light shade matches my skin quite well. I really like that it has SPF and is hydrating, products that do multiple things for such a low price is a big tick for me. I have already bought a second tube.” - Olivia
Rimmel London BB Cream Matte
“In no way is this product drying on my skin but my T-zone does stay oil free whist I am wearing this BB cream. It stays in place all day and doesn't smudge, crease or 'cake' in areas of the face like I have found with other BB creams I have tried. It is especially lightweight and breathable and when wearing this product it feels as though you are wearing nothing.” – Georgia
Dior Diorskin Nude BB Crème
“Even though this is a BB cream I find it covers all of my concerns, extreme redness, cystic acne scarring and dryness in certain areas. It's incredibly buildable as well which allows me to build the coverage to my desire. I was initially worried that there was not going to be enough product but it has lasted me almost a year so don't let the size of the product fool you!” – Madeline
Nude by Nature Sheer Glow BB Cream
“The BB cream gives a luminous, yet natural looking glow to your complexion and helps to diffuse the appearance of uneven skin tone. However, if it is coverage you are after, whether it be to conceal scarring, or breakouts, this product just will not do the job. What this BB cream does best is to enhance what you already have, so if you are experiencing a good skin week like me, this cream sure helps to celebrate that!” - Sinead
Maybelline New York Dream Pure BB Cream
“I am so impressed with the results of this cream. The coverage is just enough, giving a natural look all over my neck and face. My skin feels soft and hydrated. Sometimes when I use new products, I break out with a few pimples, this did not happen with this product: instant thumbs up from me!” – Rachel
