They're the hottest creams in beauty right now. But what exactly are blemish or beauty balms?
Everyone's talking about BB creams, so what exactly are they? The original concept comes from 1970s Germany: a dermatologist created an ointment for patients who had undergone skin peels and it was so successful, it was later marketed as ‘blemish balm’ (hence the BB).
All the elusive SPF jargon explained
A cure-all combo of SPF, tinted moisturiser, anti-inflammatory and anti-ageing ingredients, the right BB cream allows you to get away with using nothing else - saving you time as well as cash.
Sounds amazing, right? We recommend one of these BB creams if you want to get in on the act.
