    Not a fan of BB Creams. Prefer my foundations!

    I am waiting for the Mischa BB cream to be available in stores in South Africa. It’s said to be one of the top BB creams in Korea.

    am really interested in trying out the Clarins Tinted Moisturiser. I use their BB cream which is a really classy product so am assuming this one offers the same results

    I would like to try the tinted moisturizer, as I prefer to use something that moisturizes instead of foundation… Does anyone know where it is available? please let me know

    Hi Caythe. A BB Cream/tinted moisture can be used instead of a foundation if you want a lighter coverage. Both have a slight colour that will even out skin tone, however they are not as pigmented as a foundation.

    I still cannot find a bb cream that works for my skin tone. I always have to mix it with another in order for it to blend nicely.

    The Ponds Age Miracle is fantastic for my skin. It is too sheer but it has improved my skin tone.

    Hi NaturalDiva, you should be able to find the Bioderma BB Cream at Dischem.

    I have tried the PONDS BB cream…but not the Age Miracle. The Flawless Foundation. At first I didn’t like it much but after a month of use, I can see the skin care benefits it has given. I am used to another BB Cream brand that also gives quite impressive coverage which the PONDS BB cream does not. It’s very sheer. But it’s amazing in giving your skin a healthy glow as it work from the inside out with some really awesome good-for-your-skin ingredients.

    I love the Essence tinted moisturiser, for the price it is so amazing! I am a fan of bb creams, but I prefer Rimmel, and Erborian which both have an spf.

    Is the Bioderma BB cream available in SA? I love this range, it is effective yet gentle. Essence is a good end-of-the-month buy :) Totally budget friendly range of skincare and makeup.
