Guest Post: Best BB Creams for Oily Skin

If you have oily skin, you may have been hesitant to join in on the BB Cream craze. Anything that is said to be thick and creamy is something you tend to steer clear of, am I right? Well, it doesn’t have to be something totally taboo for the oily skinned, you know! There is hope! Just like all other types of makeup, there are BB Creams designed strictly for those with oily skin. Check out what we think are the top three below.

Pick #1: Dream Fresh BB Cream by Maybelline


This BB is packed full of fantastic skin benefits. It’s hydrating, enhancing, and blurs skin imperfections so they are less noticeable. It comes in five different tones which will match well with nearly any skin tone. You’ll find no oils in the formula, which I know will have you ladies dancing with joy. If you need a bit more of staying power, you can always pair it with a good powder.

Pick #2: Etude House BB Magic Cream

Three special ingredients (Aloe Vera, Chamomile, and Centella Asiatica) combine together to nourish, correct, and protect the skin. The finished result is one of a ‘no makeup’ look, so you can appear to be fresh faced and youthful instead of overdone and caked up. This BB Cream also comes in a sanitary and easily used squeeze tube that makes getting the right amount a breeze.

Pick #3: Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35

If you have oily skin, this BB Cream will be your miracle worker. It works well with the oils in your skin, controlling them throughout the day, and protecting your skin in the process. You may still want to pair it with a superb powder for additional oil protection, although it is certainly not necessary. A big bonus for those of you who don’t like heavily perfumed facial makeups is that this formula is totally fragrance free! You are offered a matte finish, and of course, with a decent amount of SPF protection.
