Clinique Acne Solutions BB Cream

BB Creams for us oily gals are thin on the ground. Things are staring to look up though,  with Clinique adding a BB to their fab Acne Solutions line.

Their Acne Solutions Foundation has been a longtime favorite of mine. In Summer when sweat and oil are at full tilt it does a great job.  I am very happy  to see a BB come along .

Acne Solutions BB Cream is a thin liquid , not a cream like we are used to seeing. A little goes a long way and it comes out of the bottle fast.  It has light coverage that is slightly buildable and does a great job of perfecting skin while feeling barely there .  It's matte but not super dry matte.

It also helps keep oil down, I needed less touch ups during the day and it helped keep my foundation wear much longer.  This is just what I needed now that it's warmer out.

The SPF is 40 using both chemical and physical sunscreens. Another bonus for the oily skinned  is the SPF. I have a hard time keeping SPF topped up in the Summer and  don't want anything greasy on.

Shade shown is light-medium. I am pretty pale and this is fine on me. A smidge darker than my skintone  right now, but it blends right in and with foundation it's even better.  It does come in five shades

Clinique Acne Solutions BB Cream is $ 37 at  Sephora .
