BB creams are an absolute lifesaver. The wonder product has been around for a few years now and if you haven't already trialled this beauty trend, sticking to your trusty foundation, then now is the time to do so. Not only do they have multiple benefits for your complexion but they’re real multi-taskers meaning you’ll save time and room in your make-up bag.
It can be tricky to find the perfect one for your skin type though, so we've tried and tested the best BB creams out there to make the decision easier for you.
First up, you may be asking yourself: 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. Not only do they tackle redness, brighten dull skin like a primer, even out complexions and hide imperfections like a concealer, but good BB creams will also contain UV protection.
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. Now, there's BB creams for oily skin too so don't be put off by the prospect of a shiny complexion if you give your usual products a miss.
