My Favourite BB Creams

Hello beauties!! I thought I would share some of my favourite BB creams of the moment.

I remember when I first heard about BB creams and was instantly curious and desperate to get my hands on one, but which one? So many companies have brought them out from drugstore to high end and ofcourse overseas where they first originated from.

So the whole idea of the BB cream which stands for Blemish Balm, is an all in one product, including your skincare, anti-age, concealing, base and SPF.

There are so many to choose from depending on your skin type and the coverage and finish you prefer.

Korea has been one of the leading markets for the BB cream and their most popular is a brand called Lioele which I'm sure most of you have heard of on Youtube. I have the triple the solution which has SPF of 30+++ and anti wrinkle care. This has amazing coverage, takes down any redness in my skin and give me a matte finish which I love, I use Mac mineralize skinfinish over the top, which warms it up as it can be a bit pale on its own.

The Bobbie Brown SPF 35 is nice enough, but for me, has not enough coverage and leaves my skin pretty shiny. Its great for wearing at the beach or by the pool. Its more like a tinted moisturiser.

The Dior Nude SPF 10 has to be my absolute favourite at the moment, it smell glorious, feels like silk and just melts into my skin blurring out imperfections. Now I know it has a low SPF, but I love wearing this with my BareMinerals Ready Foundation SPF 20. The combination of these two are a match made in heaven. My skin looks glowy,not shiny and fresh all day long.
