What is BB cream? BB cream stands for blemish balm cream. It was originally invented by German dermatologists for patients who have undergone laser skin surgery to soothe, heal and regenerate their skin. Later on, Korean celebrities adapted this formula and started using BB cream for creating the natural flawless skin look. Now it has become one of the hottest beauty trends in Asia.
BB cream is a cosmetic product that combines foundation, moisturizer and concealer all in one, perfectly suitable for a busy girl’s daily makeup use. How to use it? It is recommended to do the basic skincare before applying BB cream. And be sure to clean it thoroughly after use. When applying BB cream, use as little as possible. A small pea size amount will be enough to cover the whole face. Applying too much BB cream will make the face look pale and fake.
In this article, I will share with you the top six most popular BB cream product reviews and comparison.
