BB Secret Cream

Fresh sun protection plus anti-aging benefits! BB Secret Cream contains filters to protect the skin from sun damage. It is able to create a smooth and homogenous layer on the skin that hides imperfections, for a natural “soft focus” effect. Thanks to the presence of Olivem® 1000, skin moisture is restored. This unique formula contains Sensolene® to nourish and stimulate the rebuilding of skin’s elasticity, and PROPOLIS Oléoactif® TL to keep the skin healthy and smooth wrinkles. BB Secret Cream provides uniform coverage for perfect skin. The formula was subjected to in vitro analysis and delivered SPF ~ 20, PFA ~ 3 performance with critical wavelength 375 nm.
