Boots No7 vs. Clinique: BB creams

Is paying more for designer brand cosmetics really worth it?

We wanted to know the answer to that question when we found a foundation from Boots that was almost the same as the one we had been using by Clinique.

How did they match up? Let’s go to the tape!

Boots No7 Beautiful Skin BB Cream for Normal / Oily Skin in FairClinique Age Defense BB Cream SPF 30 in Shade 02
£12.95 for 40mL£25.00 for 40mL
PROS: the price; SPF 15 is perfect for daily wear; face felt less oily and make-up stayed putPROS: a little goes a long way so one bottle lasts awhile; you can wear it as a primer or by itself; higher SPF is nice
CONS: one coat didn’t quite give the coverage we were hoping forCONS: the price
WINNER: Clinique, but only by a nose
