What Are BB Creams?Dec 01, 2014
BB Creams have been pretty popular for some time now. They are sometimes called Blemish Balms, Blemish Bases and even Beauty Balms. But what are they and what are they good for? Basically, BB Creams combine a primer or foundation, moisturiser, sunscreen and a tint. They’re great if you want a quick and easy make up routine. Although it sounds wonderful, BB Creams come in differently types and no single cream works best for every skin type, so you should still take the time to find one that works for you. BB Creams are great in one sense because they are super convenient in a “one tube to rule them all” kinda way. Just toss it in your purse and go. They generally have a high SPF rating and most include a little vitamin C for good measure. But bear in mind that unlike when you’re layering, you may need to reapply throughout the day, especially if you live in a hot and humid climate. Finally, don’t forget to ask about the product benefits of the individual product to make sure it suits your needs before you try. Have fun!
