Ole Henriksen, Thalgo, B.

It’s interesting that at the same time Ole Henriksen launches a CC, Thalgo are bringing out their BB. The B. range BB is from last year but I always like to compare three.

Swatched

The first is Ole – it’s actually a very thin consistency for a CC cream – I think we’ve got used to CCs being quite thick, but despite being thin, it does do the job of ‘perfecting’ although I wouldn’t use this as full coverage. As far as ingredients go, it’s got everything you’d ever want in a skin care product, mainly based around Vitamin C – a solid and reliable skin brightener.

Swatches

You can see Shade Medium from Ole, Shade Ivoire from Thalgo and Shade Medium from B. which just goes to show that ‘medium’ is a broad spectrum term! While Ole has SPF30, Thalgo and B. have SPF 15; Thalgo is positioned as hydrating (with marine algae), Ole is positioned as a Vitamin C led product and B. has Vitamin C and Hyaluronic. Of the three, B. definitely gives a more dewy look, Ole has it on ingredients and Thalgo takes it on radiance. No wonder it’s so hard to choose bases these days.

So, price-wise, Thalgo BB hasn’t launched yet so I don’t know, Ole is £29 (launching any day now into John Lewis first) and B. is £10.99 HERE.
