Have you heard about BB cream? It’s the latest buzzword in beauty, and for good reason. Any product can claim to change your life, but this one actually will. “BB” stands for Blemish Balm, a product that’s been popular on the Asian market for years but has only recently presented itself in the States and Europe. It was originally formulated by a German dermatologist as a treatment to help patients of laser facial surgery soothe and protect the resulting extremely sensitive skin while imparting light coverage. Somehow it found its way to Asia, where it became increasingly celebrated, before it was brought to other countries. BB cream is like a primer plus tinted moisturizer on crack, if crack was skincare benefits and sun protection and made foundation totally superfluous. While before it could only be accessed through questionable Korean dealers on Amazon (I went there), big American brands are now cashing in on this in-demand beauty booster, and I couldn’t be more excited. If you haven’t sampled a BB cream yet, you must. Once you give it a try, you’ll never go back to thick, cake foundation. They come at all different price points and there’s bound to be one that suits you.
