BB Creams for darker skin launch

Sleek and GOSH launch affordable products

They’re the most buzzed about product in the beauty world, the wonder cream that claims to reduce redness, oily skin, even out skin tone, moisturise, provide UV protection AND act as a light foundation, but until recently BB (Beauty Balm or Blemish Balm) creams have been tricky to find if you have a darker skin tone.

So we were excited to hear that two high street beauty brands are bringing out BB Creams that cater for women with darker skin.

Sleek make-up has created the first high street BB cream created specifically for darker and very fair skin tones. Available in four shades - Fair Light, Medium, and Dark – their BB cream contains SPF 15, Vitamin C to brighten the skin and Jojoba oil for a moisturizing, smooth base and can be used as a primer, tinted moisturiser, or built up into a high coverage foundation.

Danish beauty brand GOSH also launches its first BB cream in September. Created with mineral pigments, promising to adapt to your skin tone and available in five different shades, the Chestnut and Espresso aim to cater for girls with darker skin.

At only £8.99 for Sleek's BB cream and £9.99 for GOSH's, these creams are also cheaper than a lot of BBs on the market.

Stylist’s Beauty Assistant Anita Bhagwandas, who wrote about how the beauty industry is finally starting to cater to women with darker skin, said of the launches:

"I’ve found it tricky to find a BB cream, and my skin is only medium-dark. Thankfully the two new launches from Sleek and Gosh suit a variety of skin tones and give genuinely brilliant coverage. The reason it’s taken so long to develop them is that because the BB originated in Korea, so brands tend to try them out in that, paler-skinned, market first. That’s all changing now, and I, for one, am ecstatic. BB’s for all!”

Sleek’s BB Cream is priced at £8.99 for 50 ml and launches on the 29th August in Superdrug stores and at www.sleekmakeup.com . GOSH’s launches in September and is available exclusively in Superdrug stores for £9.99.
