BB Cream, as well as CC cream, DD cream and more of the alphabet has been making headlines in beauty circles for the past couple of years. They all offer some kind of colour or blemish correction, and as you get further along the alphabet, some active ingredients and SPF too.
Often what these tinted moisturisers also have in common are unsavoury ingredients you might want to avoid, like harsh preservatives, mineral oil or fillers. - There aren't that many certified organic or natural BB or CC creams around.
It's simple though to make your own tinted moisturiser whenever you need it - and it will save you the cost of another product! Just mix together some of your concealer with your favourite moisturiser.
The photos below show how to make BB Cream, or strictly speaking a DD Cream as its made with our organic mineral concealer and Avocado 24H Replenishing Cream that are both full of very caring and vitamin-rich botanical actives. - A super healthy tinted moisturiser!
Firstly put some concealer into the palm of your hand - the circle size below creates enough tinted moisturiser for one application.
Next add a squirt of moisturiser on top. We've used Avocado 24H Replenishing Cream here, but it will work with Timeless Rose Moisturiser, or Superfruit Concentrate depending on how rich a moisturiser you would like. Mix the moisturiser into the concealer with the fingertips of your other hand until you have a smooth, even textured cream:
You can also mix with a spatula - this helps lift it all off your hand too, to minimise waste:
And there you have it - your own nutritious tinted moisturiser made in a minute!
