Best mid-range BB Creams in India: LOreal Paris True Match BB Cream & Ponds White Beauty BB Cream

I have been asked many a times how my complexion glows all the time? To this, I have always answered that a good BB Cream and eyebrow definer does the trick. Of course, a beautiful lip gloss and mascara add to the over-all clean look. More about this later. I have been using Ponds White Beauty BB Cream for a while now and it has been my favorite for the past year or may be more. In fact, once I pitted it against Garnier BB Cream where Garnier miserably failed.

But recently, I discovered another gem in the market and I have been using it for a month now. It is called LOreal Paris True Match BB Cream in the shade Gold. Both the creams are mid-range. LOreal Paris True Match BB Cream 50 gm costs Rs. 500 at and Ponds White Beauty BB Cream 50 gm costs Rs. 297 at The best part about both the creams is that they easily blend with your skin. I have a medium to fair complexion and combination skin. These two creams perfectly blend with my skin, giving me medium to natural looking coverage.

Moreover, LOreal Paris True Match BB Cream has Hyaluronic Acid that helps in reducing the appearance of fine lines and creases. Ideal for mature skin. This is what I needed post 35. Hyaluronic acid is a major component of skin, where it is involved in tissue repair. Both the creams feel hydrating and not cakey like Lakme CC Cream. Ponds White Beauty BB Cream though settles in the fine lines under the eyes over a period of time but LOreal Paris True Match BB Cream makes the skin look supple and smooth throughout the day.

LOreal Paris True Match BB Cream comes in three shades – Ivory, Honey and Gold. Ivory is for cool skin tone, Honey is for neutral skin tone and Gold is for warm skin tone. Whereas Ponds White Beauty BB Cream comes in just one shade and adapts to the skin complexion instantly. For darker skin tones, Ponds BB Cream is not an ideal choice. Coverage is better in Ponds BB Cream, but LOreal BB Cream gives a more luminescent satin finish. On a hot summer day, LOreal feels lighter on the skin than Ponds. My skin perspires under Ponds BB Cream in the summer. But nevertheless it doesn’t fade out.

Of course, there are better BB Creams in the market like MAC’s Prep + Prime BB Beauty Balm SPF 50 and Bobbi Brown BB Cream SPF 35. But then you pay a premium for these products. I feel it is not necessary to spend a bomb when you can get a good deal in the mid-range products for everyday use. But this is my personal opinion. I like to be frugal when it comes to cosmetics and use only those products where I am completely convinced irrespective of the brand.
