If you're a big fan of BB creams then you'll be excited to hear Dr.Jart+ is launching into the UK today. The brand hails from Korea (where BB creams originate from), where it launched back in 2004, and was originally developed by a team of 21 dermatologists. While the Dr Jart+ BB Creams have been available worldwide - and on many a UK Beauty Editors wish list when travelling abroad - the ones sold here have been developed specifically with UK skintones in mind.
The wonder creams act as moisturiser, serum, primer, perfector and sun protection all in one – a multitasking gem for your make-up bag. Although there are four BB creams in the range (to suit different skin concerns), the shade is the same in each - the pigments blend flawlessly with your skin so that one shade really does suit all.
Water Fuse SPF 25, £18, is ideal for combination or dehydrated skin and contains aloe vera to hydrate and balance (it gives skin a gorgeously dewy finish), while Regenerating SPF 30, £21, offers a little more coverage and contains snail secretion extract (I know... but you would never know it was in there, honest) to hydrate, and jojoba seed oil to soothe. Platinum SPF 30, £22, is for those concerned with the first signs of ageing and is packed with antioxidants like acai berry and blueberry fruit extract to protect the skin. Finally, the Premium Beauty Balm, SPF 40, £24, contains a bio peptide complex that stimulates the skin's production of plumping hyaluronic acid and collagen.
