What is BB cream?
BB cream, or Blemish Balm cream, is a multi-function tinted cream which provides coverage as well as the benefits of a skincare product. The trend for using BB cream has been huge in Asia for years, but has only recently trickled its way over to UK shores.
Here are our top BB picks for all budgets:
Origins is a great range of products for those who only want to use very natural and gentle products on their skin. This BB cream is no exception. It is a gentle formula with anti-aging properties, trehalose for hydration, and a hint of tint for flawless coverage. Available in six different shades, this is great alternative to the average tinted moisturiser.
This is a rather intelligent BB cream, which adjusts to suit your skin tone upon application. Great for smoothing and evening out the skin tone. Nude Magique would make a great base for make-up or lovely light coverage when worn alone on those good skin days.
17 BB Blemish Balm. All In One Magic Make-up. SPF 15 £6.99
At the cheapest of the bunch this is great for those on a budget and in actual fact is a great formula! A flawless finish, medium to full coverage but without being ‘cakey’, a creamy formula and added SPF15. A winner in all departments.
