Any good drugstore BB or CC cream?

I get overwhelmed at the drugstore looking at BB and CC creams(I personally do not know the difference). I want something that has a moderate coverage and will also help with discoloration such as dark spots, etc. Any suggestions would be nice!

I got a Kiko Cosmetics Milano BB Cream and it does the job and it was not too expensive. Just my skin tends to sweat afterwards, getting a bit oily.

The BB and CC creams I have tried do not give the best coverage for discoloration or dark spots. You may want to use a coverstick for those problem areas. Try the new moisture surge Clinique CC Cream.

I just bought the garnier Bb cream about a month ago and was not very satisfied. I have oily skin and it made it worse! Hope you have better luck!

Well, to be honest, the BB and CC creams on the market that have been recently released are pretty bad imitation of the real thing. BB creams originated in Germany and were designed to help laser surgery patient's skin heal while providing coverage. They, then spread to Asia when they were popularized by the Korean actresses who wore them. That's when the Korean market started producing BB(blemish balm)creams as they were in high demand. These product were very popular in the Korean culture as their skin is generally very important to them. Korean actresses may spend hundreds of $$$ a month in skincare product and dermatologist visits. Since BB creams were intended to help skin surgery patients heal they contained scar lightening, hydrating, sun protection, skin growth encouraging ingredients. Which is great for someone who wants an all in one miracle cream. Because BB creams were such a hit they began releasing CC(color correction)creams which were marketed towards fading freckles and spots and evening the skin tone. Both do basically the same thing but CC creams generally set where as BB creams are more moisturizing due to their origin. The best BB creams are those by Missha, Lioele, and Skin79. The best one for your oily skin type which has recently been released is the new formula or the Garnier BB cream. It set's matte and is pretty much a medium coverage foundation. I didn't put a powder and it lasted for 6 hrs before any shine went through for me.
