5 Best Natural BB Creams for Aging Skin

By Sandra Roussy February 01, 2024 Makeup and Fashion

Do you use BB creams? Do you know what BB creams are? BB creams are not quite foundations but more like tinted moisturizers and are fairly new to the market compared to foundations that have been around for decades.

  1. LÉA NATURE SO BiO étic BB Cream – This cream is enhanced with organic active ingredients derived from sacred lotus, zinc, and witch hazel.
  2. CITY CC Anti-Pollution CC Cream SPF 15 – Clinically tested to shield against urban pollution, clogged pores, and inflammation, this cream comes with broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection.
  3. Burt’s Bees BB Cream with SPF 15 – This is a lightly tinted BB cream moisturizer that firms, conceals, smooths, and perfects.
  4. COOLA Rosilliance Mineral BB+ Cream Tinted Organic Sunscreen SPF 30 – This cream boosts your skin’s natural tone and is infused with a bouquet of antioxidant-rich plant extracts.
  5. Lily Lolo BB Cream – Lily Lolo BB cream contains sodium hyaluronate, organic aloe, and jojoba oil.

They offer a more natural-looking complexion and moisturized skin. Typically, there are fewer shades to choose from if we compare them to foundations, but they are adaptive to skin tones.

More beauty brands and cosmetic producers are turning to more natural and sustainable ways of producing their products. This stems from the interest of consumers, like you and I, who are concerned about what we put on our skin and how we treat the environment.

BB creams often contain SPF to protect our skin from the sun and also other ingredients like vitamins and plant extracts that are good for aging skin.

We’ve rounded up our favorite natural BB creams for mature women.
