BB Creams Vs. Tinted Moisturizers

By now you're probably familiar with the term BB cream (beauty balm), but still might be unsure of the difference between each. Well, I'm here to help you out which suits you more.

BB creams are your all-in-one product. It is a combination of SPF, primer, anti-aging ingredients, moisturizer, even skin tone, has staying power in hot summer days and they offer light to medium coverage.In other words comes with skin benefits. Whereas a tinted moisturizer's purpose is to Hydrate your skin, has minimal coverage, and some may have sun protection.It is lightweight and last only a short while. The coverage is really light,So, If want to cover black spots or freckles this isn't going to work for you. Yet, It has variety of color for you to choose from.
Now the important question is:
Which is best for acne-prone skin? BB cream
Which is best for fair complexions? Bb cream. Most BB creams only come in 1-2 shades that are very fair to medium skin tones.
If you don't normally wear a lot of makeup, the tinted moisturizer is much better for you as it is lightweight and easy to apply. But If you're used to wearing thicker makeup, go for bb cream because it provides better coverage. If you're concerned with skin problems, choose bb cream which has that specific benefit you are looking for.

How to apply: a stippling/buffer brush works well or your fingers.

Choose one of these fab formulas: Maybelline New York Dream Fresh 8-in-1 Beauty Balm Skin Perfector SPF 30, L'Oréal Paris Youth Code BB Cream Illuminator, and Bobbi Brown BB Cream.
