Spring Cleaning Out My Closet – BB Cream Battle

Hi everyone ๐Ÿ™‚

I took a week off from blogging, because it’s vacation for me and I wanted to relax a little ๐Ÿ˜‰ But no worries, I’m back !!! To lighten my load a little I’ll try to post a new blog piece every 2 days, instead of almost every day. Blogging every day is hard when you are juggling your time between blogging, studying, doing a full household and a boyfriend ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway, last week I did do some preparations for today. My bathroom closet isn’t only overflowing with shower gels, it’s also full of make up products. Some of those are buys I regret making. So I needed to get sorting stuff out. I already chucked a lot of old and not loved stuff out and I’m left with stuff I wasn’t sure about if I wanted to keep it or not. Because I can’t make up my mind about some, I would like you to help me out a little. Others see more than you do yourself ๐Ÿ™‚

I present you my little BB-cream / tinted moisturizer collection. It has already been thinned out a couple of times and this is what I’m left with.

There is 14 of them all together. Korean and European … All needing to be tried again to see if they actually fit me well or not.

I’ve tested then in pairs, like a little battle between two different products :p For good measure I only did the left half of my face, so you can see the effect. I also didn’t powder off any of the creams.ย I do apologize for the weird facial expressions I’m having in all the pics. I just was looking into a mirror to see if my head was fully in the picture (lol) I think I should mention that I have oily skin and also dry skin. It’s a combination of the two. In the morning I’m more dry and in the evening I’m pretty oily.

These are my only two remaining Holika Holika BB-creams. I had about 10 of them I think (oops ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ) The Aqua Petit Jelly BB I enjoyed wearing in the past. It’s has a jelly type of consistency and it changes into a water like texture when you apply it. The Petit BB (Shimmering) has a normal liquid texture and gives a different finish.

I think both fit me quite well. The Petit BB make me look a bit more grey, but it has a nice glow to it. I don’t know if I can wear it when I’m having a greasy day. I think this battle is a tie.

Next up is a stand off between the well known Korean Super + BB (hot pink) by SKIN79 and the European Miracle Skin Perfector BB cream by Garnier. I got the Garnier in a box, so I didn’t really had the chance to make it fit my skin, but it’s for light skin.

SKIN 79 Super + BB

Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream

I already know that the Garnier one is to dark for me. If I would do my whole face I would look pretty orange, so that one goes into a sale. The SKIN79 BB cream makes me look a little bit lighter than I am and makes me look a little cake-y. I’m considering chucking it out as well.

These two aren’t BB creams, they are tinted moisturizers. Still they need to be tested and why not against each other. I know that the Essence one isn’t sold anymore, but I had this tube lying around. The Plante System I got in a box, so no choice of color on that one.

As you see the Plante System one is waaaay to dark for me. It looks like I had a self tanning accident or something like that. There is no chance i’m keeping that one. I love how the Essence one looks. It evens out my skin tone and it looks super natural. Essence won this battle !!!

Yves Rocher Peau Parfaite is one of the last BB creams I bought and I had a double feeling about it when I tried it out for the first time. I didn’t use it since, so I’m curious if I will like it this time. Skinfood Good Afternoon Berry Berry Tea BB is one of the few out of this series had.

Skinfood Good Afternoon Bery Bery Tea BB

The Yves Rocher gives me a more natural look, it doesn’t make me look as grey as the Skinfood one. The Skinfood one is going into a sale ๐Ÿ˜‰ I do like the Yves Rocher better than I did the first time ๐Ÿ™‚

I never thought I would be able to do another battle between two BB creams of the same brand. I found both of these on Ebay last summer. Beauty Angel is a less well known Korean brand.

Beauty Angel BB Magic Creamย 

Beauty Angel BB cream moisturizer

I have a double feeling about both of them. They make me look white, but that can be mended with a little bronzer. The BB Magic Cream is a little more cake-y to me. I’m keeping both to see how the wear is over the course of a whole day.

These are also two BB creams I found on Ebay. They were cheap and very light in colour.


HengFang Mini BB Cream

Both make me look very white, but I like the UBUB one best. I don’t know whether to throw both out or try them for a whole day.

I can’t do a battle with this one because it’s the only CC cream I have. The Lorรฉal Nude Magique CC Cream should become the colour of my skin.

It’s not really evening out my skin tone as i would like. I still see a little redness on my cheek. I wore this CC cream for a whole day before and it oxidizes pretty fast, so I become to dark very soon. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ This one is going … bye bye !!!

Last one (I promise) It’s the Holika Holika Strawberry Pore Cover BB Pact. It’s the only BB compact I have.

It makes my face look very matte. I know that’s because it’t a powder, but It looks good on me. I’m keeping this one ๐Ÿ˜‰

So that were all 14 BB creams / tinted moisturizers that I still had. I’ll be testing all keepers out for a whole day, with make up on and all, so I can see if they hold up and to see how they oxidize.

I already made up my mind about some, but I would love to get some feedback from you all. Thank you in advance !!!

What one(s) do you like on me the best ?

Be Happy !!!

    I really like the Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly and the Holika Holika Strawberry Pore Cover BB Pact on you best! I have not heard of this brand before so I might have to do some shopping and check them out.

    Holy crud, that’s a lot of BB creams! I haven’t heard of most of them, so many thanks for this awesome roundup of reviews! I adore my Skinfood one (I have a different one), although I use it as a concealer, haha.

    I like the Yves Rocher! โค

    Jane Iredale! But it’s full coverage because I have acne. Also, it’s really expensive but I get it for cheap because my aunt sells it at a spa she works at! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ Best part, it smells like Citrus and it’s natural!
