This wonder cream, according to Cosmo, is meant to be all-singing and all-dancing. It will give you a good base for makeup like a primer, even out complexion like a tinted moisturiser, cover minor imperfections and redness like a concealer, hydrate your skin like your day cream, brighten and perk-up a dull complexion and some will even protect with SPF. Some also promise healing, soothing and anti-ageing properties.
How do I choose one right for me?
Treat it like skincare and find one for your skin type. Do you have dry skin? Oily skin? Problem skin? Do you have ageing concerns? Or do you just want a healthy glow? Check you like the smell (it is often perfumed) and make sure it blends into your skin well. Try before you buy and see how it feels on your skin for the day — in the same way as you would try a foundation on your skin before buying.
How do I use it?
The magic of the BB Cream means you can wear it alone without foundation and you should get a light, natural finish coverage to give you a health glow and cover uneven skin tone. Use it when you don’t fancy wearing full foundation or if you want to brighten and perk-up your skin between work and a night out.
This BB Cream phenomenon sounds too good to be true — is there anything it doesn’t do?
It won’t cover like a foundation so if you suffer from spots you might need to go over problem areas with a concealer. There are also limited shades on offer — generally light, medium or dark. Watch out for pinky undertones too which will not suit darker skins.
