BB cream has been my new beauty obsession of 2012 since my bff/beauty & fashion guru/author of AshnFashn.com introduced me to it. My other bff, the hilarious and talented casting genius/author of the extremely amusing and boisterously merry rants at EwRewd.com, refers to me as “the Bee” hence the title of this post. I like alliterations.
What the heck is it?
BB Cream is a cosmetic staple that used to be sold mostly in East and Southeast Asia, but (fortunately for us!) is rapidly making it’s presence known in the Western beauty industry! BB Cream stands for “blemish balm” in most of the Asian markets, but here in America we know it as “Beauty Balm” because the word “beauty” is easier to market and sell than the word “blemish!” Just my guess, of course.
This cream is a girl’s new best friend – that will never talk about you behind your back! It’s the hardest working beauty product on the shelves and you won’t regret adding it to your morning beauty routine. You could see it as just another tinted moisturizer, but then you’d be selling this little wonder product short!
BB cream is a one-stop-shop facial cosmetic product to replace serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation, and sunblock! So in addition to enjoying your sparkly new skin – you can enjoy less clutter in your medi cabinet and throw all those other bottles in the gar-bage! Bah-bye!!
And just when you thought it couldn’t get better – it does. That is the wonder of BB cream. Not only does it moisturize, protect you from harmful UV rays and provide enough coverage to give your skin a natural glow – it has other benefits too. It doesn’t merely cover blemishes – it also treats them! Yup! Spread BB cream on your face and watch as it goes to work fighting blemishes such as acne, sun spots and age spots. And with anti-wrinkle, anti-inflammatory and soothing effects – why have you not clicked on the link below and bought one for yourself yet?!
This product is amazing and you can tell I am a BIG fan. I love the light and fresh feel without having to wear make up everyday – it’s a huge bonus and a wonderful thing you can do for your skin. There are many manufactures of BB cream, but my favorite so far is the Garnier version (see below).
I opt for the Medium/Deep variation because in the battle of my gene pool – the Native American side won over the Dutch side so I need the darker option, but for you little light skinned belles out there they have a lighter shade as well that might be best for you.
I hope you love this product as much as I do!
