Are you someone who runs out of the house and has just a few minutes to spare in front of the mirror? Has it been a challenge finding the perfect quick fix products to give you a ready and fresh look in the morning? We know we are. Wouldn’t it just be a blessing if we could find one product that serves the purpose of a light finish foundation, concealer, moisturizer and sunscreen? If you’re a working girl or someone who’s out and about in the day light there’s no doubt that you have must have spent a considerable amount of time and money finding the perfect solution to your morning make-up fixes. The simplest product you can use that combines the benefits of a moisturizer, sunscreen while also serving the purpose of a foundation is a BB cream. After trying a number of BB creams available in the market we tried the Nivea 5 in 1 Beautifying Moisturizer. Hands down; this is definitely one of the best BB creams we have ever used and think everyone should give it a shot. One simple application provided a flawless complexion and instantly healthy looking beautiful skin. If you’re someone who is looking for light coverage and a healthy glow then this should be your go-to.

Perfect for: Normal to dry skin. Works perfectly well on sensitive skin.
Usage: Apply cream on clean and dry face. Gently massage in small circles. Apply a light quote for a natural finish but you may build on it if you need more coverage. Lasting formula.
Result: Flawless and smooth coverage. As per the claim, the product does serve the purpose of a balm and light coverage BB cream. Enriched with Minerals, Provitamin B5 and a hint of make-up, the BB Cream is a 5 in 1 day cream that moisturizes and gives a flawless and beautiful looking complexion. The liquid is thicker than other BB creams that I have tried; however, it is still much lighter on the skin than most foundations. It absorbs so well into dry skin while making it less flakey and works perfects for sensitive skin as well. While the BB cream provide protection against the suns harmful rays to a certain extent, since it is only SPF 10 it’s unlikely for it to protect your skin from damage if it’s exposed to the sun for a prolonged time period. The product evens skin tone, refines the appearance of pores and provides a matte effect. Its best quality is how light it feels on the skin while lasting all day long. We really feel like is a magic solution to all working make-up problems.
