What is BB Cream and why is it so popular?

Filed under: Uncategorized — iamstepher @ 6:19 pm


My friend Molly introduced me to BB Cream.  I am a sucker for any new skin care so I was pretty surprised to just now find out about it.

BB Cream started out as cream initially used to protect skin after laser procedures and surgery while also providing light coverage.  There a dozens of different formulas and qualities but all of them promise the all-in-one properties of moisturizer, primer, foundation, sun block and anti-inflammatory.  Some even promise to lighten skin and lessen flaws and acne over time.  BB creams are so popular in South Korea that even men have started using them.  I just ordered a few from Amazon and will try them out this week and report back.  I went with the Korean Brands for my initial trial because they are the most popular and least expensive but lots of Western companies are starting to sell them now, including Dior, Clinique and NARS. 

I don’t wear much makeup but I do use sunscreen, moisturizer and concealer.  If this can really cover all of those needs in one application and give me a dewy complexion then count me in!
