What Is BB Cream? Get The Beauty Facts Now!

The Basics: The “BB” in BB cream stands for Blemish Balm, but don’t be fooled into thinking it’s just for spots. It’s an all-in-one product that primes, moisturises, evens out skintone, brightens, gives coverage and helps to conceal any imperfections. The best thing about BB creams is that they’re closer to a skincare product rather than make-up, so most contain an SPF and anti-ageing properties that’ll help to improve your skin over time.

Which One To Choose? There are so many amazing BB creams on the market, so the best thing to do is visit a few different beauty counters and try them on your skin. We love The Body Shop’s new All-In-One BB Cream, £12. The clever formula adapts to your skintone, leaving you with a flawless-looking complexion. It launches in store this month, so keep your eyes peeled! VJ
