Alex Cosmetics Royal BB Cream
In recent months, the term "BB" has been added to a variety of new skin care products, but what does it mean? In simple terms, it's the skin care equivalent of a magic pill; a cream which can be used on sensitive and rosacea-prone skin, reducing the appearance of blemishes and redness, and even combating acne and skin rashes.
The term "BB" comes from the phase "Blemish Balm" which hails back to the 1950's, a type of cream discovered in Europe in wound-healing trials. Fast forward to 2013, however, and these new generation BB creams not only regenerate and improve skin but also help it look brighter and healthier. They're suitable for everyday use, but if you've undergone certain complexion enhancing procedures, such as a strong peel, they're ideal.
While my skin is generally good, it can get distressed and irritated occasionally either from travelling, the change of seasons, or transiting from one time zone to another where the climate is significantly different. And one BB cream I've had the pleasure of trying recently to help with that is Alex Cosmetic's Royal BB Cream.
This high end skin care brand from Germany has three different BB creams on the market, but this one, which is new and tinted, is reportedly a bestseller worldwide. The reason? It not only nourishes and moisturises the skin, but also calms and soothes while helping to prevent premature ageing.
All three BB creams have a zinc base, together with a combination of anti-bacterial qualities and intense hydration ingredients. There's also a sun protection which works immediately on application. The Royal BB Cream is ideal for mature skins, working to protect from the sun and correct past damage, with key ingredients including argan oil, olive oil, soybean oil, almond oil, and jojoba oil.
The combination of oils, however, isn't oily; it makes the product glide on beautifully, and keeps the skin soft and hydrated without any trace of stiffness, dryness or flaking. It's easy to apply for light coverage, washes off easily at the end of the day, and delivers a flawless finish to you skin. It also comes in a variety of shades so you can find the perfect tone for your complexion.
Royal BB Cream is ideal to travel with, not only from its size, but especially if your skin is prone to sensitivity or distress. It doubles up as the perfect light foundation, and can help to soothe your complexion while providing sun protection on the road. Not to mention a flawless finish.
