BB Cream causing breakouts for anyone else?

Hello Ladies and Gents,


So, I just stopped using HALO and started using the Smashbox BB Cream, and LOVED IT...that is until I noticed a slight breakout on my cheeks. Such a bummer because this looked great on, and it eliminated the use of like 3 other products.


I told this to a friend and she said a lot of people breakout with BB Creams, and that they have to find the right one for them. So, I guess my question or what I am wondering is, what is it about the BB Creams, that causes breakoutst? I thought this was more of a natural, or lightweight product vs. regular foundations. Could I be applying it wrong? Has anyone heard of this happening? Love to hear from you Smiley Happy ...


Strength and Honor,

I tried the Shiseido BB cream and noticed my pores were more clogged than normal and got some small breakouts throughout my face. I guess BB cream is still makeup/heavier sunscreen.which may still clog pores. It's too bad that it doesn't workout since it has amazing reviews. I will take the advise from this forum and try some tinted moisturizer  that has lower spf, Hopefully that will lessen the clogged pores & breakout. Btw, I just used some Kate Somerville peel pad on my face since my pores are so clogged. It feels so good and my face feels very clean.
