I do enjoy using a good BB Cream. I mean, what’s not to love? They are easy to apply, conditioning, protective and give just a little bit of coverage. As always, I tend to lean towards those with natural ingredients that I can slather on my skin with reckless abandon, knowing the ingredients are all good.
Human+Kind’s BB cream is a winner for me. It provides sensitive, combination or normal skin with the perfect blend of moisture and warm, sheer colour to help even out skin tone. The antioxidant benefits of the natural and organic ingredients, all help to reduce UV damage and aid in skin repair and it comes in two tints: Light to medium and Medium to dark.
The 100% organic formula contains Jojoba oil to minimise fine lines and rejuvenate the skin, plukenetia volubilis seed oil (an antioxidant that is high in vitamins A and E) and Vitis vinifera, an antioxidant that contains AHA to help correct discoloration.
The formula is quite thick and needs to be rubbed in a little, but once applied it feels weightless on and looks completely natural. It does a great job of reducing red tones in the skin and giving a healthy glow.
Also fabulous is La Mav Organic BB Crème, which is suitable for all skin types and provides light coverage thanks to its colour adaptive formula. At first I thought there was NO way on earth this dark toned cream could possibly suit me, but as I blended it the colour softened and faded. It would be ideal for summer. I found this formula quite thin in texture, yet only one pump is needed to cover the whole face. I warmed it in my palms and then pressed it into my skin. It blends well once it’s warmed and stays put with a slightly matte finish.
It’s also infused with Vitamin C and Rosehip Oil providing proven anti-ageing benefits while also nourishing and protecting skin from free radicals. As with all La Mav products it is certified organic, clinically proven and cruelty free.
