Best BB cream for acne prone skin?


Which BB cream is best for acne prone skin? Which of the BB creams available in India – Maybelline Clearglow BB cream, Maybelline Clearglow BB stick, Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB cream, Deborah Milano BB cream, The Body Shop BB Cream – are suitable for acne prone skin?

1 Answer


From our review of Maybelline Clearglow BB cream and BB stick for acne prone skin, you will see that both contain a strongly pore clogging ingredient Ethylhexyl Palmitate.

Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB cream contains Ethylhexyl Palmitate as a main ingredient  too, making it just as comedogenic.

Both Maybelline Clearglow and Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector have been reported to cause breakouts, the Garnier BB cream being the worse offender of the two.

The Body Shop All-in-One BB cream claims to be non-comedogenic although it does have Ethylhexyl Palmitate as one of its ingredients plus a few oils thrown in. The Body Shop BB cream provides poor oil control for oily skin and is better suited for normal to dry skin.

Deborah 5-in-1 BB cream wins out in this department with no significant pore clogging ingredients and good reviews all around. So Deborah BB cream is our pick for acne prone skin. While it may be a safe bet, do a whole-day patch test for breakouts before using it all over the face. You can buy Deborah BB cream in India through online stores.

Our second pick would be Maybelline Clearglow BB stick for oily / acne prone skin.
