Bali Body BB Cream SPF15

One thing we’ve come to adore Bali Body for, is their commitment to skin care no matter the product they're producing. So when it comes to a nourishing BB cream, of course they’re going to have packed it to the brim with skin-loving ingredients. But what are those glowing, dewy-skin giving components? Well, first up we’ve got the hydrating godsend that is hyaluronic acid, then anti-inflammatory green tea comes into play, and lastly, the inclusion of skin-boosting marine collagen which works to rejuvenate your skin. Flawless skin that still looks like skin? It’s just an application away.

Working to ensure your skin is protected with the inclusion of SPF50+, this cream has the dermatological tick of approval. Although always make sure to reapply your sunscreen, wear protective clothing (cover up and wear your hat and sunnies) and of course, avoid peak UV exposure.

With glow-getting infusions of mineral pigments and brightening pearls, your skin is bound to look like a disco ball (in the best way possible).

As if that’s not enough, this skin-loving formula is infused with hyaluronic acid and glycerin, so you know your skin is getting all the hydration it could possibly need. Extra added bonus: unlike other BB creams, this one from MCoBeauty has been designed to work as a buildable formula that helps to cloak imperfections. 

Key features:

  • Buildable coverage 
  • Covers imperfections
  • Acts as an all-in-one (moisturiser, primer, foundation)

What is BB cream?

When BB cream (AKA beauty balm) first launched onto the market, the idea of infusing skin care with cosmetics seemed ingenious. Nowadays more often than not, our makeup products have a long list of skin-loving ingredients formulated into them, but that doesn’t mean that BB creams need to go on the backburner. Designed for those ‘no-makeup makeup’ days BB creams offer a lightweight, ultra-nourishing balance between coverage and care. 

Can you use BB cream instead of foundation?

Definitely! If you’re after glowing, sheer coverage, then opting for a BB cream will be a fantastic lighter, more nourishing choice for your skin. Because not everyday needs to be a ‘heavy’ makeup day. These BB creams will ensure your skin is nourished and protected all while doing a top-notch job of evening out your skin's tone and texture.
