If you don't know what BB Creams are by now then you have probably been living under a rock but basically BB stands for beauty balm or blemish balm. It's an all in one facial cosmetic product to replace serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation and sunblock. It's designed to use as a regular foundation, often underneath powder depending on the desired coverage and finish. I am going to be comparing the three BB creams that I own to let you all know what I think about them and which one I recommend most!
So the conclusions I have drawn from my comparison are;
* Garnier is better in regards to price and coverage
* Although Skin79 contains more product, Garnier is still better value for money
* Maybelline provides the best colour selection
* Garnier provides the best coverage and is the most build able
* Garnier and Maybelline are more accessible than Skin79
and the consistency/finish depends on your preference so that is not a deciding factor.

With all of these BB creams I like to use a brush to apply the product, either my Furless Stippling Brush or Real Techniques Buffing Brush. Of course you can definitely use your hands if that's what you prefer, just make sure that they are clean!
So my overall favourite would have to be the Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream because...
* The price point is just right
* It's like the never ending tube of BB Cream, it lasts ages
* It has impressive coverage
* The consistency is easy to work with
* The light shade suits my skin tone really nicely
* It has an incredible matte finish, perfect for oily skin
and it's really easily accessible so you can find it anywhere!
Watch my "Battle of the BB Creams" video above!

* The Dream Fresh BB Cream was gifted to me by Maybelline and the Skin79 BB Cream was gifted to me by However, all opinions are honest and my own.
