What is BB Cream?

Wednesday, February 18, 2009

BB (Blemish Balm) Creams originated from Germany and dermatologists prescribed them to patients who had laser surgery to help soothe and regenerate their skin. Now, it is the most raved about beauty product in Asia. Currently, there are no companies that I know of in North America that make BB Creams.

What does BB Cream do?
Generally, BB Cream is an 'all-in-one' product, which brightens up your skin. It's a moisterizer, foundation, concealer, etc. Many BB Creams in the market have spf 20 +, which is a total plus. Prolonged use is suppose to improve the look and feel of your skin.

Most BB Creams in the market today are from Korea, and many of them can be found on ebay for about $20 to $50.
Some popular brands that carry BB Creams are:
Dr. Jart

The only down side about BB Creams is the limited shades that are available. At most there are 2 shades - lighter and darker shade. So if you are someone with a darker skin tone, BB Creams probably won't work for you.
