Ever heard of BB Cream?

BB Cream, also known as Blemish Balm Cream, Beauty Balm Cream, Blemish Base Cream or Beauty Base Cream, actually has nothing to do with babies! In fact, it is a multifunctional product that evens out the complexion, boosts radiance and corrects, repairs, moisturizes and protects skin. It’s ideal for young and acne-prone skin, as well as for mature skin.

Where did it come from?

Currently a hot-ticket item in Europe and Asia, BB Cream originated in Germany, where dermatologists were using it to promote skin healing and hide scars after certain harsh cosmetic procedures, such as facial peels. It was then imported into Korea, sparking a craze among Asian women, who are big fans of cosmetics.

Practical, affordable and easy to use! 

Due to their multitasking properties, BB creams simplify your skin care and makeup routines. They work as a moisturizer, a primer and, in some cases, a foundation, serving to:

  • hydrate skin and keep it healthy;
  • even out the complexion;
  • correct lines and imperfections;
  • boost skin’s radiance and glow;
  • provide UV protection.

Some BB creams even boast dermatological properties, helping to fight the signs of aging, purify the skin and reduce irritation. In other words, with BB Cream you save yourself the hassle of purchasing several different products.

Plus, you don’t need to be a makeup artist to use it, since the product offers easy application and a streak-free finish. All you have to do is warm a dime-sized quantity of the cream between your fingertips and apply like a regular moisturizer. Certain BB creams replace foundation, while others can be used only as a primer.

Adapted to the trends of the day!

For some time now, BB Cream has been meeting the needs of Asian women looking for a porcelain complexion. But skin care companies have now adapted the product to the Western market by lowering its degree of coverage. The result? A natural, nude finish that falls in line with today’s hot trend: a fresh, clean complexion with barely-there makeup!
