BB cream making me break out?

I recently started using Two Faced BB cream and although I like it, I've started breaking out.  Is this common for this product?  If so, can anyone suggest a good oil free BB cream?  Thanks!!

I've tried so many! I finally caved and got smashbox because everyone raved but it is too thick for me... Honestly use Garnier over both of these products. But still searching for the perfect one!

Re: BB cream making me break out?

Smashbox BB cream claims it is mattifying and noncomogenic (that non-acne word! lol) but while I did think it was more mattifying/less oily than others I've tried, its still a cream.

Re: BB cream making me break out?

That's interesting that smashbox is supposed to be mattifying. one of the reasons i purchased it was that it was a more natural finish and not mattifying at the store. and i have totally not found it to be mattifying in daily use.

maybe i have weird skin because many people describe it as mattifying and it just...isn't...when i wear it..

Re: BB cream making me break out?

I tried looking at reviews on this product, but I haven't read anything about breakouts, so it may just be your skin. I noticed it contain mica and tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E), so that may be something you want to look into in causing breakouts, but it could just be an allergy thing. I hope this helps and good luck!

Re: BB cream making me break out?

melissa - it could just be your skin. and tbh all the bb creams that are out rn, aside frm dr. jart at sephora, are all the 'western' versions of what bb cream is. i use a korean brand called etude house's bb cream and it's like my hg bb cream ever. what i suggest is that you research about the diff brands of asian bb creams and hope that they'll wrk for you? or if not, try the smashbox one and the nars tinted moisturizer - they both seem like good choices!

Re: BB cream making me break out?

I agree with your statement. Most brands out there just slap on BB Cream on their product even though it's just a tinted moisturizer with SPF.

Re: BB cream making me break out?

ikr? they're trying to get with the bb cream hype but is obvsly failing. even chanel has a cc cream now -_-;

Re: BB cream making me break out?

What's CC Cream? o_O

Re: BB cream making me break out?

cc = complete correction
yeah i'll just leave it at that

Re: BB cream making me break out?

the nars tinted moisturizer (basically a BB cream) is soooo beautiful! it gives a gorgeous glow to the face Smiley Happy

Re: BB cream making me break out?

Im not sure if this BB cream is oil free, but I have relatively oily skin, and this product works great for me. Try the maybelline Dream Fresh BB cream. Its a drugstore product, so its very cheap, compared to so many other BB creams. However, the maybelline BB cream isnt really a BB cream. Its more of a tinted moisturizer. In fact, most BB creams today are like that. Definitly look for a light tinited moisturizer. I hope this helps Smiley Happy 

Re: BB cream making me break out?

I would recommend Dr. Jart's Water Fuse BB Cream, because it is infused with water and is like a drink of water for your skin.  Another good (and cheaper) option is Garnier's BB Cream...which is also nice because it comes in more than one "universal" shade...

Re: BB cream making me break out?

try the smashbox bb cream (:

Re: BB cream making me break out?

I'm in love with the boscia bb cream. I use it on days that I don't want too much coverage and feel like my skin needs a bit of renewing. Boscia is a skincare line, so I felt better buying a bb cream from a company like that, and it's also oil free. Try a sample, I'm sure you'll love it.

Re: BB cream making me break out?

It really is trial and error, isn't it? For me, the Juice Beauty CC Cream in Natural Glow is a spot on match and doesn't cause breakouts.  It is actually slowly evening my skin tone, too.  Not a Sephora product but the only BB-style cream that works.  Just got a sample of the Tarte one, too, I will try and report back!

Re: BB cream making me break out?

BB creams totally make me break out. I have tried the revlon and Maybelline. And it is not normal break outs-- like hard under the skin zits that hurt Smiley Sad

 

i have  afew other friends who the same thing happened to.
