“The BB cream is perfectly coloured to give my skin a healthy glow”

“I bought the DermaActives BB Cream in the hope it would even out my complexion and give my face a smooth, uniform finish. I have fair skin and tend to be quite ruddy in my cheeks. I also suffer frequently with a dry forehead so when I use foundation, it cracks and looks unsightly. Instead of the foundation creating a smooth and balanced look it actually highlights the imperfections and makes my skin appear scaly.

The BB cream has a lovely creamy texture that feels like velvet when applied to my face. It comes in two shades, light and medium. I have fair skin so I chose the light and it is perfectly coloured to give my skin a healthy glow without appearing artificial.

BB Cream contains a moisturiser and is SPF 26, both of which are hugely important and beneficial to me. The moisturising aspect means that the problems I have with foundations highlighting my dry skin are overcome and the sun protection is always welcome as my fair skin is prone to sun damage and I am very conscious of protecting it at all times.

I use the cream every day because it makes my complexion look healthy and smooth and like all of us, when we look good, we feel confident. I only need to apply a small amount because it goes a long way. Whilst the initial outlay may seem pricey the product lasts a long time and represents great value.

The fact that the BB Cream is also paraben, fragrance and oil free is obviously a bonus for anyone who has concerns about the content of most cosmetic products or who has sensitive skin.

I would highly recommend BB Cream to anyone who wants a flawless complexion with the added moisturising and sun protection benefits.”
