10 Best BB Creams in Singapore

When it comes to doing your makeup regime, one of the most crucial steps is to apply your makeup base before applying the rest of your makeup, such as contour, highlighter, blush and eye shadow, etc.

There are many different types of makeup base that is available today. From the liquid foundation to the powder foundation to the tinted moisturizer, we also have BB creams and CC creams becoming more popular in recent years. This article will be looking at BB creams that are highly sought after for their lightweight textures and moisturising effects.

So what exactly is a BB cream, and what makes it different from the other types of makeup bases? BB cream, short for “Beauty Balm” or “Blemish Balm”, is a type of lightweight foundation that offers maximum coverage with extra skincare benefits. In other words, besides acting as a foundation base, it also provides sun protection (contains SPF), as well as hydrating, moisturising, pore smoothening, anti-ageing and brightening effects!

However, with so many BB creams out there in the market, it may be pretty tiresome to find one that suits you best. Hence, we have compiled a list of the 10 Best BB Cream in Singapore to help you choose the perfect BB creams catered to your needs!

“It’s an amazing product that replaces several other steps. A wonderful all in one BB Cream. The shade is the perfect color for my skin tone. I’m on my 4th tube now! I will continue to buy this for many year’s to come. The price is reasonable and affordable to do because it’s so worth it. I finish my look off with a pressed powder lightly on top….BOOM PERFECTION!!😍❤❤”
– Virginia restey [More reviews here]

“This did like a liquid foundation. The coverage is full and it covered just like how a liquid foundation works. It matted up my skin upon application but didn’t feel tight and did what it claims to be. I don’t think I need to use a liquid foundation anymore cause this works wonders. I’m a warm skin tone and since there’s only 1 shade available, it was a tad pinkish on me. Just use Laura Mercier translucent loose setting powder and I’m good to go!”

“Wow really amazing makes my skin look perfect , definitely needs to be set with a matte Finnish powder otherwise it comes off on your phone , looks too oily etc”
– alena summ

“Love this!!!!! It adds a nice dewy glow but not so much that you look oily. And if I feel like a more matte look, setting powder easily fixes the issue. Will keep purchasing. Not sure about the claims it makes about improving skin tone and brightening your complexion because I just got it about a week ago– but honestly even if it doesn’t do that, I have actual skincare to address my issues. Great BB cream!”

“Love it. Light to medium coverage while still looking like you skin. Feels like you have nothing on your skin. Doesn’t stink into lines which is great for this 60 year old face”
 – Pwitty

“This is the first BB cream I tried and I absolutely love it!! It goes smoothly on my skin with a beauty blender sponge. I’ve been trying expensive concealers and foundations from Sephora and it never worked out on me. The color blends evenly and easily. The best part is that I’ve worn this BB cream in 90 degree weather and it stays on flawlessly! For amazing coverage, I dab the BB cream on my face with a sponge and just continue dabbing until it blends in with my skin. I haven’t tried it with a brush yet but, this BB cream works great with my sponge. I read a lot of reviews concerning fake BB cream; I just ordered through the seller with either the most reviews or the best reviews. I’m glad I got a genuine bottle. Good luck to all the other customers!”

“My all time favourite! I always go back to using this. Been using this since 2010! The coverage is great, and it stays on pretty well. Great for my sensitive skin too.”
– V 

“Looks grayish when I first squeeze it out on the back of my hands, I was shooked. After I applied it on my face it actually adapted to my skin colour which came to me a surprised. Since it’s a BB cream I expected it to have Low coverage, but the coverage is actually pretty good considering it’s a BB cream. Could totally pass as a foundation. I usually use this on days where I want to only have minimal makeup. I personally feel that it lasted on my face the way I wanted it to be. Deducted half a star cause of shade selections, big brands can do better.”

“This stuff is amazing! I live in a humid area and I tend to get oily throughout the day but it doesn’t get cakey or separate at all. In fact I feel that it looks better as the day goes by.

It covers up large pores, smooths out imperfections. Makes your skin dewy and glowy and you can achieve the Korean glass skin effect.

I have worn this out for 12 hours before and the make up did not rub off.

Doesn’t clog my pores, doesn’t feel heavy unlike other foundations/B.B. creams I’ve tried

However it is light coverage and it does not cover up any of my acne scars so I will have to go in with another concealer. It smoothens out the skintone and redness only.

The price point is worth it to me as you get a refill package. Plus the quality of this stuff is just amazing. One packet has lasted me for around 9months (I don’t use it everyday, maybe 2x a week only). Remember to flip the cushion over for more product!”

“I love this so much. It’s actually the first bb cream I’ve fallen in love with. I don’t have many skin issues besides oily skin and this week I have a blemish on my chin. I used this like a foundation and then powdered especially where my blemish is. It made it less noticeable but it’s definitely still there which is to be expected with a bb cream. This held up nicely at the gym today. I haven’t gotten super oil slick face yet. Definitely a repurchaseable item for me. Very nice look. Not dry and not too shiny. Went on with a makeup brush like a dream.”
pualonnie

“I have used this for at least 2 years and it’s been amazing! I have combination/oily skin and this keeps the shine away for almost the whole day. I like the finish too – not too wet/glowy. I’ve tried to use other BB creams but always come back to this one!”

“I purchased Maybelline’s BB cream in the shade light/medium and it works great. It is very lightweight so it doesn’t feel like you’re wearing sunscreen and it has a pretty good amount of coverage. It did a great job of covering redness on my cheeks and a couple of fading acne scars. Overall I think it would be a good substitute for foundation if you’re going for a sheer ” no makeup” look.”

“I love this product! Works really well for my skin! Although I don’t have acne I’m usually red as a tomato. The product is a little bigger than what I thought it was going to be it’s a decent size. What I liked about this cream was that it wasn’t thick and Capable to smooth on face very easily. It’s slightly thinner than your average lotion. It blended into my skin so well and the redness was gone within about 30sec. Afterwards I just added a bit of mascara and that’s about it. No need for foundation. My new holy grail!”
– Jesse James
