Boots 17 Bring out their own BB Cream

Boots 17 range is the latest brand to jump on the BB Cream bandwagon.

At £6.99 and available in two shades, Light & Medium, they are offering a cream which is slightly cheaper than the Garnier one (reviewed here)yet promises the same results.

Like other BB creams, 17’s version is said to conceal imperfections, brighten your complexion and help to control oil whilst providing you with a very respectable SPF of 25.

I got on this with cream far better than I did Garnier’s, perhaps because the formula felt much more light weight on my oily skin.

Don’t get me wrong it still had the lovely, creamy feeling, just without being too heavy.

One thing I would say is that I found this version slightly iridescent (though I’m not sure if you can tell this from the images) which whilst giving a lovely ‘glow’ to the skin, would probably be something I could do without as a fan of the matte look.

All in all I’m pretty impressed. It gave a lovely delicate coverage, was light and luxuriously creamy yet natural and created the illusion of flawless skin.

Boots 17 BB Cream is available to buy from November 2nd. Will you be trying it or are you over the BB hype?


  1. It sounds promising :) Do you happen to know how many shades there will be? x

  2. Ooooh, that looks much nicer than the Garnier one ( ive not tried that one yet...):))xx

  3. I'll be giving it a try, I generally like 17 products but haven't tried any BB's yet x

  4. I've tried the garnier one and didn't like it, hopefully this one will work out better! xx

  5. Oh didn't try the Garnier product. Quite interested in this one.

  6. Ooh another BB to try and this one looks much better. I don't like it too thick or too dark (like the Garnier felt and looked). This is cheap enough to try without worrying about throwing away money, if it's not suitable for me.

    Thanks Sarah :)
