Our Favorite BB Creams From the DrugstoreMay 13, 2022
Don’t get us wrong, we love full-coverage foundation, but on hot and humid summer days when sweat is inevitable, a lightweight option is enough. If you’re new to the BB cream life, you should know it’s a great, lightweight alternative to foundation to help you master the no-makeup makeup look.
The formulas are a combination of moisturizer and foundation, which means they will work to even out your complexion, hydrate, and protect your skin — oftentimes with much-needed SPF. The best part? You don’t have to spend a lot of money to find a great one.
