Battle of the BB Creams | Diorskin Nude

I’m definitely a BB cream kind of girl. Heavy foundations that clog up my pores and make it look like I’m wearing a mask of makeup have just never been my thing. I’ll take a light base that lets the freckles show through any day. (Not that I have any freckles, but oh, how I wish I did). I’ve tried my fair share of BB creams from Garnier to bareMinerals. And while I loved all of them for a time, none of them just quite seemed to be The One. That is, until Diorskin Nude BB Creme.

So in the spirit of a good showdown, I thought I’d give you quick reviews on all my BB cream loves, and tell you why Diorskin Nude ticks all the boxes for me.

I had obviously heard the praises for the Diorskin Nude BB Creme before. But it wasn’t until reading this research declaring it the best BB cream out there, that I knew I just had to give it a try.

Firstly, being Dior the packaging is obviously dreamy. All nude with silvery details. The creme inside has a lightweight texture that just melts into the skin, leaving a finish I can only describe as ‘natural glow’. Unlike most BB creams, the coverage isn’t nonexistent, and this one has a bit more pigment to it. It corrects everything I need it to, while still looking fresh and letting my skin peer through. It also doesn’t disappear at the first sight of my natural oils, but rather stays put and looking gorgeous all day long. The creme has a slight perfume to it, but to me that’s just one of the things I love about French beauty bits.

Diorskin Nude is like having all the best sides of a sheer base, with the added skincare benefits of a BB. It’s buildable, blendable and leaves your skin looking as fresh and radiant as a rose.

Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream

This was the first BB cream I ever tried. Like the bottle suggests it’s actually closer to a tinted moisturizer than a BB cream, in that it offers plenty of hydration but a very light coverage. Applied with fingers it almost seems to disappear into the skin. But apply it with a beauty blender and you’ll be left with a light dewy finish. Great if you have good skin that just needs a bit of help, but won’t work for oily complexions.

bareMinerals Complexion Rescue

This one was my one and only for a long time, and I still keep a tube of it stashed in my beauty drawer. It has the weirdest whipped gel cream consistency, that applies like a dream. The coverage is natural and sheer, but somehow just enough. Basically, it’s a good skin day in a bottle. However, despite the moisturizer claims I find that this can sometimes make my skin a tad dry.

Urban Decay Naked Skin One and Done

The formulation of this one resembles a foundation, but the coverage is more like a really sheer tinted moisturizer. It also feels completely weightless on the skin. On the downside, the shade selection leaves much to be desired and none of the shades really suit my skin.

Have you tried the Diorskin Nude BB Creme?

      I’ve never tried the Dr Jart BB cream, but I dare say this one is the winner for me! xx

    I agree with you – we must have the similar skin! I have tried so many BB creams and agree with your other choices as well! But Diorskin Nude BB crème is prefect for me! Light, hydrating and leaves your skin dewy.

      Hi May! I’m so sorry it’s taken me this long to respond. Unfortunately Dior has discontinued their BB creams, I have no idea why since it was just perfect!

    where can you find the Dior skin BB cream?? I can’t find it anywhere. Mine ran out and now I’m really upset.

      Hi Ellen! Unfortunately Dior has discontinued their BB creams, so you probably won’t be able to find it anywhere. I actually ran out of mine as well, and found out that you can’t get it anymore when I went to stock up :(.
