Dior Hydra Life BB Creme Broad Spectrum SPF 30


Dior doesn’t mess around. These folk give us what they give us– a fabulous BB Creme (Hydra Life with SPF 30) … in just three shades. Alrighty then. Kinda annoying, but whatever, it’s Dior.

Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30

This drugstore-brand tinted moisturizer fully competes with Laura Mercier’s tinted moisturizer, but has more SPF (Mercier has SPF 20). It’s cheaper, has natural coverage, evens tone and has light-reflecting minerals. It is thicker than other tinted moisturizers, but I don’t mind this. I use the “light” shade and the color blends really nicely. I used to get compliments on my skin when I was wearing my favorite foundation (that’s another post), but I also get raves with this, and it’s not even foundation! I have never broken out from it.

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 70

Goes on great under makeup, and doesn’t make me break out. Good price point for so much protection. A must.

Kiehl’s Skin Tone Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream (with SPF 50)

This looks dewy, so if you are very oily, you may not like it. I love it. If you live anywhere near Kiehl’s or a Kiehl’s counter, they are generous with samples and this sample lasted me about two weeks before I broke down and bought it. It does much more than a tinted moisturizer, and looks extremely natural.
