Last year, I fell in love with Tarte’s BB Tinted Treatment with SPF 30. I love the way it makes my skin look, even without makeup! And, having the melanin content of a vampire, I am all about the SPF. Sadly, our love has come to an end since it’s not part of Tarte’s vegan line. So the hunt for a vegan BB cream begins!
I checked out the Andalou Naturals and Mineral Fusion Un-tinted BB creams, both in SPF 30. While I liked them both, one of the things I love about Tarte’s BB cream is that it’s tinted.
I also checked out the Mineral Fusion Illuminating and Perfecting BB creams, both in SPF 9. I know mineral makeup is supposed to have some natural SPF, but I’m still not ready to trust my face to an SPF 9. I did like the Illuminating one; it really did seem to make my skin shimmer. I had high hopes for the Andalou Naturals Tinted BB cream in SPF 30. Alas, the tint on this is too dark for the practically translucent.
And so the hunt for vegan BB cream continues. If anyone knows a good BB cream with SPF, please leave a comment!
