Battle of the BB creams.

I can't be the only girl in the world who hates the thought of covering my face with a layer of thick foundation on a daily basis. So with this little alternative coming to the forefront of the beauty world 2 or 3 years ago I have been through my fair share of bottles, and so, I thought I would share the best and worst I have tried and tested.

Nivea's BB cream claims to even skin tone, reduce the appearance of pores, brighten the skin, illuminate and protect the skin with SPF 10. However, I feel that the product is completely over hyped on the bottle. Most of the things it claims to do, it does not. I find the colour to be far too dark for my skin tone (even though it's the palest shade) It's consistency is very thick and it tends to stick to places of my face and not to others, which I find really weird and 'blotchy' is definitely a look I don't intend on sporting anytime soon. 
I would give this product 2/10.

Garnier's BB cream claims to simply 'perfect' skin. Although I find it better than Nivea's cream, I still find the colour to be a little dark for my fair skin and the texture a little thick. The cream spreads nicely across my face but can be slightly thicker in some parts which again makes me look a little blotchy in some lighting. 
I would give this product 5.5/10

I decided to keep the best for last, No7's  BB cream claims to give you flawless, healthy looking skin while still looking natural. It also has SPF 15 which is always a winner in my eyes. I feel that this product does exactly what it claims to do. My skin feels soft and natural while looking healthy and blemish free. The only critique I have for this product would be it's colour is still slightly dark for my skin tone, but it's nothing a little pale concealer can't fix. 
I would give this product 8/10.

What BB creams would you recommend? 

Be a doll and give me a follow
