Your new favourite skin product – guaranteed!
If you haven’t heard of BB cream, where have you been all this time? The multitasking “Beauty Balm” is truly a moisturiser, primer, concealer, foundation, sunblock, wrinkle reducer and all-round flawless skin maker. Originally formulated by a dermatologist in Germany back in 1950, the cream focused on protecting skin after laser procedures and surgery. It has since come a long way and is currently cornering the beauty market, holding 13% of all beauty purchases worldwide.
BB creams are the ultimate multi-taskers: they conceal, protect, soothe, hydrate and brighten, all at once. They’re somewhere between tinted moisturiser and medium-coverage foundation. Skincare ingredients vary, but can include hydrating ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, brightening ingredients such as Vitamin C and antioxidants. Depending on the brand, most BB creams can be worn alone, as a primer, or just as a concealer – it’s all up to you and depends on how much coverage you want.
Even drugstore brands like Garnier and Maybelline have jumped on this highly touted BB cream bandwagon. However the more popular, and highest rated BB Creams are the Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream (SPF 35), which is available in five shades and Dr. Jart + Premium Beauty Balm (SPF 45), available in one shade.
