Make-up stands were starting to look tired and old, with companies churning out the same products. With the rise in popularity of the new BB creams, I have something new to lust after!

So what is a BB cream, I hear you ask? It began with Asian cosmetic technology, BB stands for Blemish Balm, and the product is intended to provide light coverage while working to improve the overall tone and texture of the skin. The European cosmetic market grabbed the new technology with both hands and now the high street seems to be taken over by them.

Difficultly pin pointing which BB cream is for you. Prices can range from Boots 17 BB Blemish Balm All in One Magic Make-up at £6.99 to high end prices like Estee Lauder Daywear BB Anti-Oxidant Beauty Benefit Crème at £32. Another issue perhaps is your skin type. Sadly most BB creams on the market are not suitable for oily or combination skin.

Boots No7 are one company who have solved the problem of matching your skin type with their brand spanking new range named, ‘Beautiful Skin’ which has three different formulations. No7 Beautiful Skin BB Cream addresses normal to oily, normal to dry and dry to very dry, it seems they have all bases covered. At £12.95 it’s not the cheapest on the market, but £5 off vouchers circulate every few weeks.

No7 Beautiful Skin BB Cream is available in most Boots stores and online at
