I hope you are sitting down, because I have something that even shocked the life out of me. Pantene Pro-V has released a BB cream for hair!! Of all the companies I expected to jump on the BB Bandwagon, I didn’t expect a hair company. You know, I just had to pick it up, right? No other choice.

I must say I was so excited to see a “BB Powder”. I’ve never seen one before and I’m easily entertained. I like Physician’s Formula powders in general so I was super excited to give this a go!!
Physician’s Formula has released a BB line for Spring 2013. This post will review the Super BB All-In-One Beauty Balm Cream from that line.
I really like the packaging. Its so cute and sparkly! I’m a SUCKER FOR PACKAGING!! I like that its in a tube as well. It keeps the product sanitary. For me there is nothing worse than having to stick my fingers in a pot. Its like a petri dish!
I was at Rite Aid the other day and what did I spy with my little eye but Physician’s Formula’s new BB collection release for Spring 2013. There were three items in the collection, a Beauty Balm (BB Cream) a BB Powder and a BB Concealer. Continue reading Physician’s Formula Sneek Peak BB Cream and Powder
I picked up some Maybelline BB Cream. If you read my blog regularly or watch me on Youtube you know that I’m interested in BB creams. I’m also a Maybelline fan so of course I was excited to try this.
They had a tester in the store so I was able to pick my shade easily. I really appreciate a tester, don’t you? I got the shade light/medium. I’m an NC 20, if that helps. The next time I may get the light shade though. Its such a sheer color that it really doesn’t matter all that much.
Here is what Maybelline says about it:
“Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream Sheer Tint 8-In-1 Skin Perfector is the one-step wonder for good skin everyday. Get eight skin benefits in one simple step: blurs imperfections, brightens, evens skin tone, smoothes, hydrates, enhances and protects with SPF 30.”
This is a good basic moisturizer. Its oil free and gives sheer coverage. It’s also got an SPF 30, which I appreciate. It blurs imperfections as much as any other tinted moisturizer. It evens the skin tone some, but if you have anything that you need to cover, you will need concealer. If your skin is really uneven you will still need foundation. It brightens your face as much as any other tinted moisturizer does. This is not a miracle product, by any stretch of the imagination, but I will still repurchase it as a basic moisturizer because I like it for that purpose.
I don’t believe this cream rises to the level of a traditional Asian BB cream. Its not going to permanently lighten your skin or treat it beyond what a basic moisturizer would. It is oil free and does not make my skin as oily as the Garnier BB cream does. I think this is a better choice for people with oily skin.
It retails for around $8. You can get it at drugstores. The price will vary slightly depending on where you buy it.
I hope you found this review helpful!
I purchased these products and was not compensated for this review. As always, these are my own, honest opinions.
Here are my Holy Grail Products. Its all included from foundation to blush, eyeshadow, eyeliner and mascara. I hope you enjoy it!

I picked up the Garnier Skin Perfector Daily All-In-One BB Cream. I’m impressed, especially for a drugstore attempt. I like the traditional Garnier smell, which it has. If you don’t like the smell, this is not for you. It has light coverage and it is moisturizing. The SPF 15 is not up to my SPF standards, but I can deal with that by applying extra SPF. If you have always wanted to try a BB Cream, this is a good one to start with. It should be fairly easy to get in your local drugstore for somewhere between $11 and $13, more or less. Prices will vary from store to store. Have you tried the Garnier BB Cream? Let me know what you think. If not, are you going to try it? Hope your having a great day!!!

I was so excited to get a sample of Smashbox’s new Camera Ready BB Cream. I like BB creams, but was disappointed that this one didn’t have a treatment element to it:( Other than that, it is a nice cream, more coverage than a tinted moisturizer, less than a foundation. Its a happy medium. It has an SPF 35. It is hydrating and I do believe it could work as a primer for foundation, although I only used the product alone as I wanted to test out its oil controlling properties. I have an oily T-zone and my forehead was shiny after a few hours, long before 8 hours. To be fair they promise oil control “up to 8 hours”, which generally means somewhere less than 8 hours. I won’t be purchasing a full size, but if you aren’t worried about anti-aging properties this is a good cream, but for me, if it doesn’t treat, I’m not interested at this price point.
This BB cream is available at Sephora and is $39 for 1 oz.
Have you tried Smashbox’s BB cream? What are your thoughts?
