What is a BB Cream? 

BB Cream or Beauty Balm is a blend of chemical and natural products that give your skin sun protection, a natural glow, mild coverage, and a doze of skin nutrition. It’s a daily use face moisturizer that, brightens, smoothens, protects, and clarifies your skin. Most of the BB creams are infused with brightening minerals, vitamin C, and hydrating extracts from avocado or almonds to give a radiant look.

Why a BB cream is better than a normal moisturizer?

A BB cream makes your skin look instantly clearer and radiant apart from moisturizing and protecting your skin from sun rays, pollution, and dryness.

What is the difference between a BB cream and a CC cream?

BB and CC creams are multipurpose products. They combine makeup and skincare in a single formula. The “BB” stands for “beauty balm” or “blemish balm.” It offers sheer coverage, so it’s best for concealing minor blemishes. The light finish also makes it ideal for “no makeup” makeup looks. The “CC” means “color control” or “complexion corrector.” It has more coverage than a CC cream with the benefits of BB cream.

Here is a list of the best BB creams in India below 500 for different skin types:

Spinz BB Cream for older skin:

If you have older skin with fine lines and wrinkles but fewer blemishes, you can go for Spinz BB Cream. It comes in 2 quantities, 15 gm, and 29 gm tubes. This yellowish color BB cream smoothens your fine lines and doesn’t settle in the creases. The coverage is very mild so it won’t cover your blemishes and under-eye dark circles. But will make your skin look smoother and hydrated. It gives a silky finish to the skin. It also offers sun protection. If you have acne-prone or oily skin, you can also opt for BB talc. It has a mild fragrance.

Price: Rs 105 for 29 gm and Rs 65 for 15 gm tube.

Ponds BB+ Cream for combination skin:

Ponds BB Cream has been my personal favorite for many years. It gives medium coverage, has a mild fragrance, and blends well with the skin. It comes in 2 shades – Light for light to medium skin tone and Medium for medium to dark skin tone. It works like a light foundation which also provides sun protection.  It has SPF 30 PA++ which works as a sunscreen. It covers dark circles, pores, and minor blemishes providing an instant glow and light makeup look. It is suitable for all skin types. It comes in two quantities, an 18 gm tube, and a 30 gm tube. 

Price: Rs 249 for 30 gm and Rs 129 for 18 gm


Garnier Skin Natural BB Cream for dry to normal skin types:

Garnier Skin Natural BB cream is easily blendable, but it is not ideal for oily skin. Though it is best for dry to normal skin types. The texture is runny. It comes in only one shade. The tint is suitable for light to medium skin tones but might not look good on dusky tones. It gives a glow to the face but doesn’t cover the imperfections for fine lines. It has SPF 24 for sun protection and vitamin C to boost the natural glow on your skin. You can use this as a daily moisturizer or as a makeup base. It can work as light makeup but do not expect that it will make your skin flawless.

Price: Rs 69 for 9 gms, 103 for 18 gms, and 144 for 30 gms.

Belora Paris BB Cream Naturelle

Before Paris BB Cream Naturelle is an all-rounder vegan, non-comedogenic product. It is non-toxic and cruelty-free. It is made from natural ingredients like aloe vera, grape seed oil, olive oil, etc. It protects from the sun with SPF 30 as well as pollution. It evens the skin tone and gives a natural glow. If you are one of those people who are conscious users, who like natural makeup over chemicals then this BB cream will give you the desired glow while nourishing your skin with antioxidants and vitamin B, C, and E, mulberry, and daisy extracts.

It also has Blue Shield to protect your skin from blue light from phone and laptop screens. Hyaluronic acid helps to keep your skin plump and moisturized. It comes in 3 shades, Ivory Love for light skin, Mild Dew for medium skin tone, and Honey for almond to dusky skin tone. I personally like to use this product. It gives a matt finish to the skin.

Price: Rs 599 for 30 gms (usually find deals and discounts where it comes below 500)

Lakme 9 To 5 CC Cream for all skin types

Lakme 9 to 5 CC (Complexion Care) Cream has been in the market for quite some time now. After Ponds BB cream is one of India’s most popular daily makeup creams. It comes in 4 shades to suit different skin tones – beige, bronze, honey, and almond. It has SPF 30 for sun protection. The texture is creamy so use less product and gradually build up the coverage. You might find that it settles in skin creases, especially around the eyes, so be careful with the application.

It is a light makeup base and can even out your skin tone but won’t hide dark circles. You will have to use a concealer to hide those. It is one of the best bb creams in India below 500 but it won’t cover the freckles or blemishes on your skin. Though, they may appear lighter.

It comes in two sizes – 9 gms and 30 gms. Only beige and bronze is available in the 9 gms size.

Price: Rs 99 for 9 gms and Rs 349 for 30 gms

    1. Hi Piyali, it doesn’t feel heavy on the skin but gives good coverage. I can’t comment if it will be suitable for a sensitive skin as many ingredients trigger skin problems. I suggest you buy the smallest pack and try on a skin patch near your temple. If it doesn’t suit then you can always discontinue and gift it to a friend.

    1. Dark spots cannot be hidden with BB cream. For that you will need concealer and foundation. BB cream just lightens the appearance of freckles. For that Ponds BB cream is good.

  1. I am a regular college going girl.i hv oily skin.i want to look fair and gentle skin,which stays whole day.which cream will be good for me?i am not intrusted in wearing much makeup, so give me suggestion for light makeup which takes less time.

  2. My hands, feet and neck have dark colour in compare to my i have joined my college and i want to looking fair.what should i do?give me the suggestion for daily makeup for going college.

    1. Dear Priya, why are you posting questions with three different names? Anyway, your hand, feet and neck can look darker than your face if it is hereditary, or your have hormonal disbalance or you don’t take proper care of your skin. Try regular scrub and moisturizing. Apply tomato juice which is said to have bleaching properties else consult a skin specialist.

  3. I am 21 year old girl.i am a college going girl.i have oily skin.i want to know that what type of skin treatment like facial,bleech etc. i need for controlling oil and looking fair all time.what should i have to do?kindly give the complete schedule for me…..

    1. Dear Shikha, no cream can change your skin colour. I do not see anything bad in having a dusky complexion. To make your skin look clean n glowing drink lots of water. Eat fruits full of vitamin c like orange. Apply Lactocalamine oil control to have oil free skin for maximum part of the day. Keep blotting paper with regular talc in your bag and dab it on your skin every 3 hours which will help you look fresh.

  4. I really found this review helpful but plz suggest me a creme which make my skin tone fairer cz i have brown skin (Sawnli Skin ) & also if u suggest any creme which has gd effect on me for fairness dn also plz tel me as to what to do with legs & hands its also brown ….. so i want to make my face look fairer & also atleast hands & legs shd match wd da tone of face Thank You ..waiting Mam fr ur reply

    1. Dear Orbit Star, Sawli skin is beautiful. Why do you want to change that? No cream can fade the colour of your skin. Though you can improve the health and appearance of your skin. You can use make up to get even tone on your face, hands and other body parts.

      1. Dear Mumbai Gloss I Respect What U said N Truly Understand But is dr anything with which really improve my skin cz In today’s World no cares about sawnli girls ( Brown Skin Gals ) dy only want Fair skin girls either for job or for marriage
        Anywz Thanx Fr Ur Time & Answering Me

        1. Dear Orbit Star, dark skin can be changed to lighter tone with cosmetic procedures that cost a bomb. But if think that sawli skin is not appreciated then you are mistaken. Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone, both belong to that category. Over the counter creams are in effective in changing your skin tone. Try using sun block and get tan removal facials on regular basis.
