BB Cream: LOOK’s Favourite For Dewy Coverage

Say hello to radiant skin

BB cream is the perfect option if heavy, cakey foundations are not your thing. After all, we don’t all want to mask our skin, we want to enhance it and make it the best version it can possibly be. And that’s exactly where BB creams step in…

Like all cutting-edge skincare finds, BB cream originally came from Asia, and they’ve fast become a beauty bag staple. But…

What is a BB cream and who is it for?

The perfect skin-friendly face base, they’re not necessarily there to cover your spots. In fact, they’re the ideal product for people who like the natural look and want a lighter, dewy finish.

Created by dermatologists for patients who’d undergone laser surgery; think of them as a marriage between a foundation and a moisturiser with added SPF and a tonne of skincare benefits.

In short, they’re an all-in-one wonder balm that will leave your skin feeling hydrated, looking radiant, and give you just enough coverage to even out your skin tone and blur imperfections.

To confuse matters further (because the beauty industry quite likes to do that), there are also CC creams; and DD creams (yes, seriously) on the scene. One of our personal favourites which doesn’t quite fall into any dual lettered category, is Bareminerals’ Complexion Rescue and is a tinted hydrating gel cream (quite the mouthful, we know).

But, CC’s DD’s and all others aside, we’ve hunted down the best beauty balms you can buy online now.
