We can all appreciate the gift of full-coverage foundation. And while a flawless complexion is the goal, sometimes things can get a bit heavy. So, what do you do when you want coverage without the cake? The easy solution would be to opt for a tinted moisturizer or BB/CC cream. The only problem is, they don’t always provide the coverage of foundation … so like, what’s the point? That’s why we went on a hunt to find you beauty balms that actually conceal while loading your skin with nourishment. Take a look at what we found!

BB and CC Creams

1. The Body Shop Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream

This is no ordinary BB cream! Packed with organic tea tree oil, this formula not only covers imperfections, but also helps treat and clear blemishes for spotless-looking skin!

2. Decléor Hydra Floral BB Cream 24HR Moisture Activator SPF 20

Moisturizer — check. Foundation — check. Sunscreen — check. And on top of all of that, it even works to illuminate your complexion, even out your skin tone, correct imperfections and protect against pollution.

3. Garnier Skin Care Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream

We’re almost (almost!) inclined to drop foundation altogether thanks to this miracle product. It promises to renew, brighten and hydrate skin while providing immediate coverage and hasn’t failed us yet!

Giorgio Armani Luminessence CC Cream

CC creams don’t exactly have the best track record when it comes to coverage, but this “color control” brightening cream knows how to deliver! It provides the coverage you need with a lightweight feel and lends your complexion a nice, rosy glow.

La Roche-Posay Rosaliac CC Cream

If your skin is prone to flare-ups, foundation might be the last thing you want to apply to your face. This CC cream was specifically formulated to reduce the appearance of redness and act as a hydrating agent for natural coverage that feels like second skin.
