BB creams are an absolute skin lifesaver and if you haven't already jumped aboard this trend (a very long-lasting one at that), then now is the time to do it. It can be tricky to find the perfect one for your skin type, so we've tried and tested the top BB creams out there to make it easier for you.
So, what is BB cream, why they are so popular and how do they actually work? BB stands for Blemish Balm or Blemish Base, which might sound like a spot cream or tinted moisturiser, but this little wonder cream is actually so much more. BB creams are the ultimate in hard-working, multi-tasking make-up and skincare products. Tackling redness, brightening up dull skin like a primer, evening out complexions, hiding imperfections like a concealer, good BB creams will also contain UV protection. We admit it, they're one of the best beauty revelations this decade.
Other added skincare goodies include promoting healing, anti-ageing and soothing properties. Originally created by dermatologists for patients who had gone through laser surgery, the main purpose of the BB cream was to provide huge benefits for the skin. They became a huge beauty hit in 2011 and are still going strong in 2014, with new and improved formulas.
From Omorovicza to Dior, we’ve tried and tested the best BB creams on counters to help you choose the correct cream for your skin type. Check out our top picks here…
