face off ::: bb cream vs foundation {Dior}

Perfect glowing skin is important. You shouldn’t have to layer on gobs of foundation and powder to have it either! It starts with taking care of your skin; besides hydration, good cleansers, exfoliation, SPF, and the occasional facial…

…your face make up/foundation can make or break your complexion.

I’ve used DiorSkin Nude Natural Glow Hydrating Makeup for the past 3 years. Once I found something that creates dewy unblemished skin that stays on and doesn’t get oily I was hooked. I also swear it makes your skin better over time.

Recently we can’t seem to get away from the hype around these new BB Creams though. They claim to improve your skin, offer high levels of SPF, and perfect your complexion. I recently received a few samples and became more intrigued. Could I replace my foundation with a bb cream? Does it need replacing? Dior released one recently, so I knew I had to try it.

Here’s my comparison.



To purchase: DiorSkin Nude Hydrating Makeup, Dior Hydra Life BB Cream

The verdict is still out. They both work great! For now I will use the BB cream for day and foundation if I am going out at night and on the weekends.

{Update} You only need at most 2 pumps of the BB Cream, while I use 3-4 of the foundation. So you receive more for the money and you use less each application. I usually apply the Dior foundation with this airbrush foundation brush, but the bb cream is best applied with your hands since it is thicker.
