    Finding a BB cream to suit dry skin can be just as hard as finding one for those with oilier complexions. Luckily, the Decléor BB Cream provides 24 -hour hydration to quench your skin and leave it feeling moisturised whilst also looking healthy and radiant.

    Those with sensitive skin know how hard it is to find makeup that doesn’t cause irritation. The La Roche-Posay Effaclar BB Blur Cream is free from perfume and parabens, and is hypoallergenic and dermatologically-tested. This makes it ideal for those who suffer from easily-aggravated skin as it is free from a lot of the ingredients that can cause flare-ups.

    The formulation contains Blurring Technology which works to minimise pores, give an even skin tone and a flawless complexion.

    Best For Natural Ingredients

    bareMinerals are one of the best brands when it comes to their natural skincare ingredients, which is why we love their Complexion Rescue Gel Cream. It is free from parabens, oil, silicones and fragrance, and instead contains skin-loving ingredients such as Marine Botanicals and Heart-Leaf Globe Daisy.

    The finish can be built up from sheer to medium and the coverage is long-lasting, meaning you won’t need to top up if you’re heading straight out after work.

    Best For Radiance

    This gorgeous BB Cream from Argan Liquid Gold is brilliant for adding luminosity to your complexion thanks to the inclusion of Argan Oil and 24 Carat Gold in the formulation. The colour is self-adjusting, meaning that when you apply it to the skin, it will adapt to your skin tone and give you a healthy glow.

    You can wear it alone or under makeup, depending on whether you want a heavier base for a special occasion.
