The product: L'Oréal Youth Code BB Cream ($17)
The story: L'Oréal's other BB cream is more traditional, providing a bevy of skin benefits such as hydration and protection.
Sun protection: SPF 15, provided by both chemical and physical sunscreens. (In layman's terms: one type blocks UVA rays from reaching your skin, while the other makes the rays harmless.)
What we like: This cream feels more luxurious than its price tag suggests. It doesn't settle into fine lines, its antioxidants prevent signs of aging, and hyaluronic acid keeps skin hydrated. Plus its light, floral scent is so pleasant.
What we don't: Two shades promise to cover most skin tones, but, realistically, if you have dark skin, then it's a stretch.
