Top BB Creams!

So today I was thinking about summer and how much I love it and how everything is so different in summer. From the clothes, weather and even makeup. Brands release summer collection full of gorgeous shades of lipsticks, to light coverage foundations and numerous bronzers. To be honest that's one of my favourite things about summer besides the weather!
In summer when it's hot you never want your full face of foundation on, so BB cream is the perfect way to provide coverage yet not feeling cakey (or looking cakey!)! I have tried numerous BB creams, and have come to the conclusion that these are my three favourites!

Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream - £7.99
I have had a love hate relationship with this BB cream for a long time now. I think I may have mentioned it in a post ages ago about products I weren't keen on. I now am actually really loving it, before when I hated it I really didn't like the coverage but I think that was because my skin was a lot worse. Now that I don't need that much coverage all the time, I'm loving it. Although I don't love the consistency as it is really runny, it still does a great job. I would defiantly recommend this to any younger readers, or people who aren't allowed to wear much makeup, or even just for people wanting lighter coverage for summer or just in general!

Miss Sporty So Clear Perfect Skin - £3.49
At a complete bargain, I love this. You cannot get much cheaper than this for a great BB cream. It's a really thick consistency which I love and has great light coverage. Put it this way, it covers what you want but lets your natural skin be seen. It's not cakey, and has all sorts of goodness to help your skin. Including 'Natural emollient agents to help to moisturise skin', 'oil-free', 'Absorbs excess oil' and many other great things! I bet you never thought of Miss Sporty when looking for a great BB cream. I am actually getting a big fan of Miss Sporty and am hopefully going to be trying there tinted lip balms, as they look very similar to the 'Maybelline Baby Lips' (which you can't get in England that easily!). Overall a great product!

17 BB Blemish Balm - £6.99
This is one of my favourite BB creams, I have repurchased this 3 times and am almost run out of this tube (need to restock for summer!), for me its the perfect coverage, consistency, shade and its super affordable. The coverage once again blurs and covers any imperfections, but never clogs up your skin or makes your face look cakey! It has SPF 25, perfect for beach days! It claims 'no make-up make-up', which I agree with 100%. It's completely natural and it smells lovely, non of that artificial 'I-know-I'm-wearing-foundation' smells!

I hope you've enjoyed that, and found out some new BB creams, and hopefully go and try them out!
