I love it when makeup and skin care merge together because this helps speeds up my morning routine! BB cream is the newest innovation to hit the beauty market, it’s originally from Korea and it’s finally made its way to the U.S.
I know you have seen the Garnier BB cream commercial by now, the one where the models keep saying “BB!” This commercial may have left you wondering, what exactly are they trying to sell me?
So, what is BB Cream?
“BB” stands for beauty balm or blemish balm. BB creams are the ultimate beauty multi-taskers. It was originally prescribed by dermatologists to help heal skin after laser treatments or surgeries. It works as a moisturizer/foundation/primer/concealer/sunscreen – it’s an all-in-one miracle worker. You can use these alone or underneath your favorite foundation.
A few companies have already launched their own versions:
The Too Faced Beauty Balm caught my eye, I plan to try it out this summer.
