Superdrug BB Cream V'S Maybelline BB Cream

I recently brought the new bb cream and the maybelline BB cream I thought I'd share with you what I thought about them both.

So here is the superdrug bb cream I got it in light and this is a 50ml and it was £6.99.

And this is the Maybelline bb cream in light and it's a 30ml and it's £7.99

And here is what the bb creams look like the one to the left of my hand by my little finger is the superdrug bb cream and the one to the right of my hand is the Maybelline bb cream as you can see there both the same shade and the texture of the both looks the same. Now the Maybelline has SPF 30 and the superdrug one doesn't have a SPF at all.

*Maybelline BB Cream*
As I've said above this bb cream has an SPF 30 which is always a good thing. This BB cream spreads out very good and easy a little go's a long way with this one. It feels dewy on your face I like it dewy due to my dry skin this bb cream did not soak into my pores or dry bits at all it made my skin feel so soft and I couldn't even notice my dry bits which was amazing :) this BB cream is not full coverage but it leaves your skin with a glow. I really love the way this made my face look I'm very impressed with it and it has made it to one of 3 my favourite BB creams if you have dry skin I would highly recommend this bb cream I just love it :)

*Superdrug BB Cream*
This sadly does not have a SPF. Like the Maybelline one it's not full coverage. This BB cream also go's on smoothly and a little go's a long way. But it went straight to my dry bits on my face and made my skin look so so dry still I thought I won't wash it off I will see how it go's throughout the day as I was staying in the house any way and by the end of the night my face looked terrible it had gone into all my fine lines and looked even worse on my dry skin and it went a little orange on me and it just looked awful and had no staying power at all it was all patchy and horrid by the end of the night I was lad to take it off. I'm addicted to BB creams I've got 5 in total and this superdrug one is the worst one I've ever tried :( But saying this I think if you have oily skin I think it might work for you. But please if you have dry skin please stay away from this BB Cream.


  1. It's a shame about the Superdrug one, but that Maybelline BB cream sounds great, I love BB creams too, so I might have to add that one to my collection! x

  2. Thanks for the review :) the Superdrug one does have SPF 15 btw x

    1. Oops so it does I looked about 10 times and could not find it and I just had another look and I saw it as plain as day oopsy

  3. I really want to try a BB cream but I'm a little nervous as I don't completely understand them and I'm not sure whether to still use moisturiser and foundation with them :S I have oily skin so perhaps the superdrug one would be good for me.
    Love Holz oxo

  4. thank you so much for this. I like BB creams but as i have such a light skin tone i worry with this. I was going to try the superdrug one but i dont think i will now as i really like the maybelline one x

  5. Hy beautiful! Love your post! what do u say about following each other?:X
