Priceline in Australia has come out with a new range of its own beauty basics, including day and night creams, cleansers, body lotions, eye cream, makeup remover and bb creams. Everything is under $10 and the bb creams are $10 for 50 mls. There are two colours: light/medium is a light neutral beige which is bit chalky looking on my light olive skin, and medium/dark is a medium tan colour. Coverage is medium. These are NOT bb creams. Marketing hype!!! They are a very basic tinted moisturiser, nothing more. They contain no antioxidants, no brightening ingredients, no anti aging ingredients, and worst of all, NO SUNSCREEN INGREDIENTS. The whole point of a bb cream is to cut down the number of products we use, by treating and protecting the skin at the same time as evening out skin tone. Even though they cost $10 for 50mls you're still going to need to buy a sunscreen or a moisturiser with sunscreen as well. No bargain here. There are plenty of tinted sunscreens or supposed bb creams available in Australia that have a minimum spf 15, and in many cases spf 30. Palmers Eventone BB Cream is the same price, has brightening ingredients, including vitamin c and an spf 15. Natio has just brought out a bb cream in three tints for $15 and Face of Australia has a tinted moisturiser with SPF 30. These are just a few of the better choices available in Australian stores right now. This product is very basic. If you want a tinted moisturiser at a reasonable price without added sunscreen, try the Savvy by DB line (also available at Priceline) which costs about $8. Alternatively, Face of Australia has recently brought out a really nice light coverage liquid mineral foundation that really adds a touch of luminosity to the skin, and comes in four shades. Priceline should be ashamed of itself for calling this products a BB Cream.
