Get Flawless with BB
My secret to a flawless complexion is BB Cream. I’m a huge fan of these multipurpose products as they address a number of concerns, prevent future damage, and are relatively light, so your skin looks amazing with the BB cream being almost undetectable. Here are a few of the BB creams I love right now which treat concerns such as dullness, ageing and oily skin.
MAC Prep + Prime BB Beauty Balm SPF 50
Enhance your complexion immediately with this luxuriously light BB cream by MAC Cosmetics. This silky cream smooths on the skin quickly while evening skin tone. A subtle radiance blurs imperfections and skin feels nice and moisturised. This product also features ingredients to lock in moisture while shielding skin with high sun protection. A great product for anyone who wants to increase luminosity and blur imperfections such as fine lines. This BB cream is on the richer side and would be enjoyed by those who have a normal/dry skin type. MAC Prep+Prime BB Beauty Balm SPF 50 $44.
Freeze Frame BB Blur
Not your typical BB cream but wow it’s fantastic! BB Blur has a gel consistency with micro beads when rubbed into the skin, the beads burst and instantly adapt to your skin colour. Within 60 seconds a skin perfecting blur sets in reducing the appearance of wrinkles, enlarged pores, redness and skin discoloration. This product leaves skin looking radiant but with a shine-free finish. While BB Blur doesn’t include an SPF, it does include the superfruit Kakadu Plum known for its high levels of vitamin C, which protects from free radical damage, boosts collagen and radiance, and reduces wrinkles in just 15 days. This product is ideal for anyone with a normal/oily skin type who is concerned with ageing. Freeze Frame BB Blur 30ml $49.
Estee Lauder Double Wear Light Stay-In-Place Makeup SPF 10
While this product is technically not a BB Cream, it does have similar skin perfecting qualities and deserves a mention. This lightweight makeup smooths on the skin evenly and feels barely there. It offers a sheer to medium coverage which evens skin tone and has a nice subtle radiance which assists in diminishing imperfections. One of my favourite qualities about this product is its formulated to last up to 15 hours on the skin and includes oil-controlling ingredients, so you’re not shiny throughout the day. This product will be enjoyed by normal/combination and oily skin types. Ideal for anyone with an active lifestyle as this product won’t melt off in the heat or the gym. Estee Lauder Double Wear Light Stay-In-Place Makeup SPF 10 $54.
Bobbi Brown BB Cream SPF 30+
This award-winning BB cream features a silky consistency which melts into the skin evenly. Its multitasking formulation covers imperfections and evens skin tone, draws in moisture to keep skin looking plump, brightens, reduces the appearance of wrinkles and protects skin against UVA/UVB rays. What makes this product stand out is its list of ingredients which go beyond just improving the look of the skin in the short term. Bobbi Brown BB Cream features skin quenching emollients to boost hydration, botanical extracts and caffeine to reduce discolouration and redness, and a collagen boosting peptide (Argireline) to minimise fine lines over time. On the skin, this product provides a nice subtle radiance with a silky finish and would be well received by normal/dryer skin types. Bobbi Brown BB Cream SPF 30+ $65.
La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL SPF 50+ BB Tinted Comfort Cream
Anthelios XL is all about sun protection and the perfect BB cream for the Australian Summer. It features high UVA and UVB sun protection which absorbs into the skin quickly and is ultra-hydrating. Universal micro-pigments melt into the skin and adapt to every skin tone, instantly brightening and giving skin a beautiful glow. This product is formulated with Biacalin, an anti-oxidant known for its anti-ageing benefits. This product will be loved by those with dryer skin types due to its nourishing properties, and anyone with sensitive skin prone to sun intolerance. An ultra-light fluid formulation is also available for oily skin types. La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL SPF 50+ BB Tinted Comfort Cream $28.95.(
