6 Cruelty Free BB & CC Creams You Should Try Today

Copy: Serena Faber Nelson

BB and CC creams are the bomb. The Blemish/Beauty Balms (BB) and Colour Correcting (CC) creams have had everyone crazed for the past year – and with good reason. They’re lightweight, even out your skin tone like nobodies business and have a bunch of hidden qualities that work on improving the quality of your skin on a daily basis. The only problem? So many of the super popular BB & CC creams are tested on animals. Animals as smart and adorable as this guy.

But we can’t have you not enjoying the BB/CC ride, so today I’ve rounded up 6 Cruelty Free BB & CC Creams that are indeed awesome and I insist you try today.

Editor’s Note: For more cruelty-free products, tips and ideas, see our Cruelty Free Living section.

6 Cruelty Free BB & CC Creams You Should Try Today- Tarte

Tarte BB Tinted Treatment

This 12 hour primer with SPF 30 (a MUST in Australia) is one of the most loved BB creams around. Lightweight and perfect for a sheer glow (with the option to build for a fuller coverage), it will minimise fine lines and pores while evening out pigmentation and redness. This beauty comes in 4 shades and an eco friendly tube.

Ole Henriksen Perfect Truth™ CC Crème Broad

Now that we’re talking CC creams they don’t get much better than this. This baby is as smart as she is good lookin’. SPF 30 coverage along with antioxidants and other nourishing ingredients work on diminishing dark spots, unevenness, redness, fine lines and skin damage all while keeping your face glowy and gleaming on a daily basis. Comes in two shades.

Stila Stay All Day 10-In-One HD Illuminating Beauty Balm

While the name is a mouthful, this BB cream is all about illumination. Reviews are going crazy for this one, with claims including “a lit from within glow”, “a dewey, luminous finish” and “terrible at doing the dishes.”* One downside is it only comes in one shade which word on the street is best for fair-medium skinned lasses.
* First two real reviews from Sephora, last one not so much.

Lorac CC Color Correcting Cream

The tint in this CC cream is all about color correction – making perfect for those with redness, pigmentation and imperfections. It’s also a godsend for those sensitive skin souls out there – free of oil, silicone, paraben, and fragrance. Natural aloe, chamomile, calendula, and white peony are added to soothe the skin for a radiating effect. 3 shades available from light to tan.

boscia B.B. Cream

For a nourishing a flawless finish you can’t go past boscia’s BB cream. Known for their preservative-free, botanically-based approach to skincare, their oil free formula is perfect for those prone to breakouts or discolouration. It comes in one shade (which is darker than most, so maybe spray tan it up if you’re fair) and is free of Parabens, Sulfates and Phthalates. Phew  – that sentence was like my own personal spelling bee!

Too Faced Tinted Beauty Balm

One of the favourites of the BB craze, this cream is used for lightweight coverage or the perfect evening primer under make-up. Those with dry skin will love the moisturising, dewey finish and with 5 comprehensive shades there’s an option for almost everyone.

Have you jumped on the BB & CC Cream bandwagon? What are your fave cruelty free picks?

IMPORTANT UPDATE: As of December 2013, both Stila and Boscia have submitted to compulsory animal testing to sell their products in China. Sadly this means they are no longer cruelty free. We hope they return to their cruelty free stance soon!

    Awesome! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Elizabeth says:

    Love the new topics you are introducing to your site!

    • Thanks Elizabeth!

      Cruelty Free Living is a big part of my life – and I think for many dog lovers they also have a soft spot for all animals.

      It can be a hard road to navigate – I’m not perfect by any means – but this column is all about trying to find our way together to make better, more animal friendly decisions. (and find fun stuff along the way!!)

    I’m keen to try the Stila bb cream. I have fair skin with link undertones. Most foundations I go fair / light / natural.

    Sorry if this is a silly questions, but do you know which shade I should go with with the Stila, or where I can buy it in store so I can try shades on my skin?

    Thank you for your help!!

    Thanks a lot, this is really helpful! I was using Estée Lauder BB cream and just found out that they are doing testing on animals..So sad and disappointing! Looking forward to try Cruelty Free brands!

    Stila and Boscia are both no longer cruelty free. But Lumene has a bb and cc that are great. I believe urban decay has one as well.

  6. Leelee says:

    Urban Decay is not cruelty free 🙁

    • Hi Leelee,
      Urban Decay is currently listed by PETA as cruelty free and also states on their website they do not test on animals.
      Would love to hear more if you know of any variation on this.
