The Best BB Creams for Oily Skin, According to Our EditorsJune 16, 2021
If you have oily skin, chances are you spend a good amount of your time trying to keep excess shine in check. While there are plenty of cleansers, masks and moisturizers formulated to help control sebum production, finding makeup that lasts all day is a little trickier. Our solution? BB creams. BB creams offer multiple skin benefits while giving your complexion lightweight, tinted coverage. From acne-fighting ingredients to color-correcting benefits, keep reading for our favorite BB creams for oily complexions.
Maybelline New York Dream Pure BB Cream
This blemish-fighting BB cream is formulated with salicylic acid to help clear acne while minimizing the look of large pores and concealing imperfections. It’s non-comedogenic and has a lightweight feel, making it an ideal choice for those with oily, combination and acne-prone skin.
L'Oréal Paris Studio Secrets Magic Skin Beautifier B.B. Cream
This BB cream tackles four jobs at once: color correcting, priming, adding coverage and hydrating (because even people with oily skin still need to moisturize). It’s incredibly lightweight and offers a sheer veil of coverage to blur imperfections.
Garnier SkinActive Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream Oily/Combo Skin
Oil-absorbing mineral powder keeps skin looking matte and fresh all day, and the light tint minimizes the look of pores and imperfections. This BB cream also packs SPF 20 to shield your skin from UV rays.
NYX Professional Makeup BB Cream
Look to oil-free, non-comedogenic formulas like this one if you have sensitive or acne-prone skin. You can wear this BB cream alone for minimal coverage, or layer it under foundation as a color-correcting primer.
E.l.f. BB Cream SPF 20
Available in seven shades, this BB cream has slightly fuller coverage than the other options on this list, but it’s just as easy to throw on and go as part of a no-makeup makeup look. Infused with vitamin E and SPF 20, it hydrates and protects skin.
