Was interested to see if anyone else was using BB cream
I was at a work function last week and 4 out of 5 friends are now using BB cream on a daily basis. Gone are the days of using heavy foundation.

Yep, I never liked foundation so BB cream is perfect. I use the Garnier one. It seems to just even out my skin tone without covering my freckles or creating that blank-canvas that foundation can do. It means you don't have to use a lot of other makeup on top of it to re-create your face!

I've started using it recently as my every day moisturiser. I get really self conscious about my skin - I'm pale with lots of freckles and I still get pimply breakouts like I'm 19 even though I'm well into my 30s now. It doesn't provide a lot of coverage but it's enough to even things out and it seems to control the oilyness. If I'm going to work or going out I will use my regular foundation though.

I bought some the other week after hearing so many women using it.
Meh, I'm underwhelmed. I don't even find that it evens my complexion out, my mineral powder is much better and just as easy to quickly apply so I've switched back.

I also use the garnier one every day. I still use an under eye concealer as I always have dark circles under my eyes. If I'm going somewhere special I'll add a powder over the top to help it last longer. I was happy to spend more but found it did a really good job.

I used the garnier one on the weekend for the first time and it was great. Used it for a wedding and didn't have to touch up at all, and I love the fact that it's not too heavy so can use every day where I normally wouldn't use foundation.

I had never heard of it and I'm usually up on this stuff
Think I may look into it! I enjoyed the blog too!

I used the Garnier one for a bit, it was ok except when it was really hot, it literally dripped off my face! Then I started getting massive breakouts so I stopped using it...not sure if it was the bb cream causing it though.

I'm using the Garnier BB cream as well. I hear the Bobbi Brown BB cream is fabulous, so I might give that one a go next time.

I'm using the garnier one too. I'm happy with it.

Recently started using the Missha Signature BB Cream (got it on eBay from Korea) and I'm really impressed!
I ordered a small tube in the lighter colour but it was too fair on my skin, so now I'm using that as an undereye concealer for dark circles. Did a 2nd order with the next colour darker and very happy now!!
I've never been a fan of foundation - too thick and oily feeling on my skin. Have always just used Olay moisturiser and then powder bronzer over the top for a bit of colour.
I find the Missha really evens out my skintone, but still with a natural look and not that "made up" finish IYKWIM.

I am still yet to try it

What is bb cream? Is it like tinted moisturizer?
Ive been using Dove tinted moisturizer for over 10 years and I love it! I use it every day but maybe I should check out bb cream as well?

is described as a balm or base. It's a bit like tinted moisturiser ... but much better.

I used the original Garnier one for a while but the colour was a little dark (the light one) and I found it a bit greasy sometimes. I am using the Missha Signature BB cream from Korea (like PP) at the moment which I quite like - gives good coverage and not greasy - but still not perfect colour wise. My skin does seem quite good with it though.
I just bought the new oil free version of the Garnier one to try. Not that I tan, but my pale, freckly skin does get a tiny bit darker in the summer, so the colour might suit better! lol

I'm using the Smashbox BB. I am in love with it. I got home yesterday after work all day, putting my makeup on at 6am (makeup now consists of BB cream, blush and lipgloss) and my skin still looked amazing!

I'm using Paula's choice sheer matte tint at the moment and like it. Hardly any coverage but evens skintone out.
I've tried both the original and oil free Garner BB cream. I found the original one too greasy shiny and the oil free is full of alcohol and too drying and cakey.

I tried the rimmel one and then got the garnier one when it was half price at coles.
I was just wearing a clinique powder before. I get much better coverage at a fraction of the price. It also hasn't irritated my skin at all.
It's definitely not full coverage but I like it for everyday

I've been using the Garnier BB cream for about a month now and am loving it. Best of all (for me) is the fact that the millia I have struggled with since my last baby (who just turned 7) is disappearing. Win!
My friend who is doing a beauty course at the moment is really impressed Witt he improvement.

I've got the Garnier one and also Clinique.
Garnier is SPF 15 I think and a much lighter coverage. My skin's kinda blotchy so I find I'll still use some foundation. But it's nice and light.
The Clinique is far better for coverage and noticeably evens out my skin. It's SPF 30 I think but I wouldn't use every day because I think it might clog my pores up a bit.
