Alva BB cream
This multipurpose hypoallergenic BB cream is a 6-in-i cream! It moisturises whilst mattifying, provides a SPF20, firms, and one of my plus points for a BB cream is that it evens out your complexion. It also provides a light coverage but deals with those patches of unevenness we all suffer from! Contains organic vegetable oils including acaf, babaua and Argan oil which are all high in antioxidants. £30 available from alvanaturalskincare.co.uk and independent health stores.

Each item expresses an edgy sophistication and really adapts perceptions on the uses of recycled waste.
Located in Salvador, Brazil. Bottletop isn’t just about creating fashionable products.
