Heard the latest beauty buzz word and still don’t know what it is? A BB cream, a.k.a Beauty Balm combines the benefits of skincare and makeup into one super simple product.

This hero product is for makeup novices, the super busy and anyone in between. Get your daily dose of moisturiser, sunscreen and foundation in one quick application with zero skill or effort required. Specifically designed to improve redness, conceal blemishes and even out skin tone, this beauty balm also doubles as a lightweight foundation. It will make you glow, look refined and refreshed, without the telltale signs of someone wearing makeup.

The only downside to a BB cream is the confusion that comes with selecting the right one. Every cosmetic brand has jumped on the BB bandwagon and is touting their formula as the latest and greatest. So what brand is best? My ‘chosen one’ is the Garnier – Miracle Skin Perfector Daily All In One BB CreamThis product literally changes your skin. My complexion was luminous, hydrated and completely smooth after one light and super quick application. I was blown away! It is the perfect everyday foundation/tinted moisturiser for a natural fresh dewy look that every woman needs in her beauty loot. Highly recommended. Oh, and the price point? $13.95. Yep. Crazy!
