BB creams: Clinique and No 7 Review

Blemish Balm or BB creams hit my radar last summer after coming over from the Asian market, but only as the leaves started to fall and my summer skin paled and dried out did I start to appreciate their qualities.

BB creams act as a moisturiser, primer, concealer and foundation in one but I like to eliminate my winter dry patches so pop my regular moisturiser on first.

Since I attended No 7's Spring Launch event in October, I have been obsessed with their BB offering. It smooths and perfects skin leaving you with the dewy complication of an undiscovered super model. As with all new products from No 7 it comes with SPF15 and 5* UVA protection to keen skin looking its loveliest! (£15/40ml available from Boots which currently have a 3 for 2 offer on all No 7 products) I love the Normal/Dry option of the three avaliable.

I've also been able to try Clinique's BB offering which has the higher UVB protection of SPF 30 which gives the cream a denser consistency. This might be better if you require more substantial coverage but I found it a bit too thick for me and the colour was a little too pale for my skin tone. (£25/40ml)
