What is BB Cream?

by admin on June 21, 2012

BB Cream (also known as Beauty Balm or Blemish Balm) is suddenly everywhere right now, and you’re probably wondering what it is and what it does. This new skincare-meets-makeup product has come full circle around the world; first getting its craze in Asia. In 2005, Korean brand’s Dr. Jart brought the concept to the Asian market and after that it quickly spread to other countries. However, it was first invented in the 1950s by a German dermatologist named Christine Schrammek, and was designed to help post-peel patients mask redness. BB Cream is all-in-one product that combines the functions of a primer, anti-aging serum, moisturizer, and light foundation, along with many other added benefits like SPF. That’s just the fancy way of calling it what it actually is – a tinted moisturizer.

Here are the top BB Cream/Tinted Moisturizers on the market:

1. Garnier Skin Renew BB Cream Miracle Skim Perfecter, $13

2. TOO FACED Beauty Balm Multi-Benefit Skim Care Makeup, $32

3. Dr. Jart+ Water Fuse Beauty Balm SPF 25, $35
