The ‘BB’ in BB Creams stands for ‘Beauty Balm’ – with most brands combining moisturiser/primer/foundation/sunscreen into one easy multi-functional product that can cut your morning routine in half!
BB Creams have grown in popularity over the last few years – and I personally use one day-to-day instead of a heavier foundation as it feels light on my skin but still provides a good amount of coverage.
Not all BB Creams are vegan (no animal ingredients) & cruelty-free (not tested on animals at any point) though, so take a look at our comprehensive list of the best vegan & cruelty-free BB creams on the market:
