I'm starting a new series on my blog, called 'hidden gems'; those products in your makeup collection that you may not reach for everyday and can often get overshadowed but when you properly think about them, you realise how good they actually are. Time to share the love. 

The first product under the spotlight is the Bourjois BB Bronzing Cream 8 in 1; a versatile, multi-use product for under a tenner. I use this in 3 different ways and I love each one. The first way is the way it's intended to be used, as a BB cream as the name suggests. I only ever do this when i'm having a really good skin day, which is mainly in the summer as it slightly evens the skin tone and adds a bit more colour to your face, perfect for achieving natural, summer skin!

I also use a small pump of this mixed in with my paler foundations so that they match my skin tone when i'm more tanned. This means you don't have to buy your favourite foundations in different colours, saving lots of money!

The final way i use this is as a cream contour. A little goes a long way and it blends really well to give a 'natural' contour. 

So there you have it, the first hidden gem is a great little product that more people should know about. It can be bought from Boots or Superdrug or online at ASOS or Feel Unique for only £9.99, bargain!

Have you got any hidden gems in your makeup collection?
