Every cosmetic company under the sun has launched a BB cream now. As I saw a few conversations on my twitter timeline, I realized that many women are not really aware of what a BB cream actually is. Among the uproar they created in the market, looks like these cosmetic companies actually forgot to tell us what exactly they are trying to sell anyway. Well, Beautifour to the rescue!
I have tried two BB creams so far. Maybelline and Garnier. I will be posting a comparison post soon after this. As of now let’s just see what a BB cream actually is.
BB creams have been around in the Asian markets for a very long time. Korean beauties swear by them. A trend that started there has now spread world over. Originally known as blemish balm or beauty balm, it is a multipurpose product that packs in the goodness of primer, moisturizer, foundation and sunscreen. Along with skin care properties. A BB cream provides a hint of coverage and protection. Woah! So much in one product? Sounds great for us busy bees!
It is. I do not wear foundation but I like wearing BB creams because they are much lighter on the skin and do not feel like makeup. I especially like to wear one on days my skin looks and feels dull.
Have you tried BB creams? Which ones do you like?
