  5. Got GARNIER BB CREAM a long time ago. I don't know what to say about it.
    It is good/bad at the same time. Now I'm trying other brands like The Body Shop. So I guess I prefer BB creams. They are FTW :)

    1. hey! Thanks for your comment.

      I wrote a review on the Garnier BB cream a while ago, here's the link if you'd like to read that:
      http://www.albalsamlife.com/2013/03/balsam-beauty-pick-garnier-bb-cream.html

      but basically I think the Garnier BB cream is certainly not the best bb cream out there, but it'a good for the price. However, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone with oily skin.

      I personally prefer BB creams too, especially for daily use, but I also cannot live without my foundation.

      I would recommend you try Clarins BB cream, or the one from Dior. I tried the Clarins BB cream and it is very good! but a little pricy. as for the Dior one I have heard so many good comments about it and seen few friends wearing it and it looked great.


      lots of love,

  6. I just wanted to say thanks, I've never understood why there was a BB or CC cream...next question, would you still use your moisturizer underneath?

    1. I'm glad that I could help :)

      Speaking from my own personal preference, I personally always use moisturizer underneath before starting my makeup routine - regardless if i'm using bb cream or foundation - because my skin is dry.

      If your skin is oily or tends to get oily after applying makeup, you can skip the moisturizer since your bb cream already has a moisturizing factor in it.

      I hope that helped :)

  8. Great breakdown you got there.. Now I totally understand the difference between them.. haha.. thanks for this.. What other bb creams would you recommend? I'm currently using etude house bb cream, I really love the coverage it gives because it looks natural but still covers my minor blemishes. Got it over at www.mybeautycity.com

    1. Thank you very much for your comment, I'm glad you like this post :)

      I would also recommend the Dior BB cream or the one by Clarins, they're good but a little pricier for sure ..
