Different benefits of BB Creams
Reduce Shine issues
If your skin is oily and it keeps on shining all the time, you usually go for the foundation which is oil free. But there is an oil free cream which conceals the shine on you face and also moisturizes your skin with hyaluronic acid. All types of skins need moisture. Nothing can go better than Estée Lauder Daywear Anti-Oxidant Beauty Benefit Creme SPF 35. It helps in reducing the shine and add the subtle glow in your skin which is not slick looking or reflective. It also fights aging components and contains Vitamin E, C and antioxidants.
Reduce dryness of your skin
Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream SPF 15 is the best cream which helps in reducing dryness of your skin as it contains hyaluronic acid and glycerin and these both are best moisturizers-choice of any dermatologist. This cream is like Gatorade for dehydrated skin. It is very easy to blend over dry areas of your skin and makes your skin look really nice. Its lighter formula covers minor imperfections. It also contains Vitamin C which helps in brightening your skin.

For Glowing skin
Dr. Brandt Signature Flexitone BB Cream helps in making your skin more glowing and radiant. All the BB creams moisturize and help you look more luminous.

Still, it’s only available in one color.
For Uneven Skin
Most BB creams spread like a tinted lotion, however Clinique Age Defense BB Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 acts more like a lightweight foundation (which, as any great cosmetics artist will let you know, makes skin look more energetic than truly pigmented formula).
