BB creams are the makeup bag stalwart that have become a beauty phenomen since they’ve exploded on to the beauty scene in 2011. After proving to be popular in the Asian market, BB creams, or ‘Blemish Balms’ as they’re otherwise known, have become the all-singing, all-dancing alternative to foundation. Marrying two of the most important secrets to a flawless complexion, moisture and coverage, when you find a good one, you’ll want to keep hold of it. But here at Beauty Expert we understand that finding the perfect BB cream can be a task in itself. So, we’ve devised our top 5 BB creams that will really get you glowing!

Infused with age-defying minerals found in Hungry’s thermal waters, Omorovicza’s Complexion Perfector BB Cream is known as the ‘Swiss Army knife of the beauty industry’. Perfect for the lady who needs a BB cream that is multipurpose – it’s a moisturiser, foundation, sunscreen, concealer and anti-aging cream all in one!

The no silicone formula feels light weight and comfortable on the skin, leaving a flawless and sheer finish, whilst the cream’s white lupin and ruby crystal elements revitalise and plump the face.
