L'Erbolario Lodi BB Cream with Hyaluronic Acid
Great for fair skins, this lightweight formulation features white lupin to revitalise, ruby crystal to minimise fine lines and slow-release hyaluronic acid microspheres for plumping and resurfacing.
Additionally, it has SPF 15 protection and is free of silicone, meaning dirt and bacteria won't get trapped beneath it.
The BB Cream
BB creams made their European debut in 2011 following their huge success in the Asian market, and quickly made an impact on the beauty world.
But what is a BB cream?
Some companies refer to them as Blemish Balms, others as Beauty Balms, but the general consensus is that they should provide moisturisation, SPF protection and sheer coverage alongside soothing and healing properties - preventing the need for numerous separate products.
The similarity to tinted moisturisers has been noted, but BB creams are designed to go one step further - with additions such as hyaluronic acid and antioxidants to regenerate skin.
Originally created by dermatologists for patients who had gone through laser skin surgery, the idea is that they actually provide genuine benefits for the skin - as well as providing enough coverage to be used as either a foundation or a primer, depending upon your preference.
