Hi everyone, I am a huge BB cream fan. My skin type is more oily than combination. For daily wear I prefer using a BB cream over foundation because I find BB creams are lighter than Foundations. Moreover, the foundations which suit my skin are quite costly so I don’t want to finish them by wearing everyday 😀 This post has been wanting to go up since a very long time, but today I finally decided to put it up. I have 3 BB creams to show you guys today. I am going to talk about the pros and cons of each and why I like one over the other. So its going to be like Maybelline VS Pond’s VS Garnier BB cream battle. Let’s find out who wins 😛
Maybelline Ponds Garnier BB Creams Review and Comparison – Which one to buy?
Maybelline Clear Glow Bright Benefit Cream Review
Price Rs. 250/- for 18 ml
Maybelline one is a really light weight BB cream. It is very hydrating so no need of a separate moisturiser when I am using this. It has a sheer coverage so does not really hide any marks. It covers mild imperfections only. It gives a brightening effect to the face and evens out the skin tone a little. I reach out for this when I feel like my skin needs more hydration. The natural finish it gives stays on my skin for around 2 hours. It has an spf 21.
This is the only BB cream which has 3 shades to choose from.
Maybelline BB Cream Shades Available – 3
1. Maybelline Clear Glow Bright Benefit Cream – Natural 3
2. Maybelline Clear Glow Bright Benefit Cream – Radiance 2
3. Maybelline Clear Glow Bright Benefit Cream – Nude 1
L to R natural, radiance, nude
Pond’s White Beauty BB+ Fairness Cream Review
Rs. 75/- for 9 g
Ponds BB cream is more thick and more like a foundation. However surprisingly it does not leave any white cast and blends on the skin easily. It provides a little bit more coverage than maybelline BB Cream and little less hydrating. It evens out the skin tone and controls oils on my skin for around 3 hours. Coverage wise it has more coverage as compared to the maybelline BB cream but still only covers minor imperfections. This one has an SPF of 30 PA++ which means it gives UVA protection as well. The biggest flaw is the fact that it comes in only one shade. There is no other shade to choose from. If it suits you, you are in luck otherwise the money is wasted.
Garnier Skin Naturals Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream Review
Rs. 109/- for 18 g
Garnier is probably my favourite BB cream out of the three. The texture of this BB cream is really smooth. It brightens up my complexion like no other. My skin tone is medium and I find that this gives the most matte finish out of the three. Although coverage wise it is pretty similar to the above 2. I really love the natural glow it gives to the face which lasts around 3-4 hours. Its light weight and evens out the skin tone. It has an spf of 24 and added UVA protection. Overall this has been my everyday wear goto BB cream. However again, this comes in only one single shade. 🙁
Garnier and Pond’s BB cream come in a single shade so you have to be lucky to find your perfect shade. However still I find that Garnier BB cream is quite versatile and suits almost all skin tones. Maybelline BB cream comes in 3 different shades so you have a choice as per your skin tone. I find that Garnier BB cream provides most natural and even glow followed closely by the Maybelline BB cream. Pond’s BB cream has the maximum sun protection factor so it is great for ladies who are more exposed to sun.
