What is BB Cream?!

Here is a little history on the origin of BB Cream (courtesy of Wikipedia) before we get started on whether or not we actually need it…

“BB cream, also known as Blemish BalmBlemish Base 

Originally formulated in Germany by dermatologist Dr. Christine Schrammek in the 1950s,[note 1] the cream was initially used to protect skin after laser procedures and surgery, while also providing light coverage.

Companies began in 2011 to launch BB creams in Western markets, although whitening properties are a main selling point of BB creams in Asia” –

So there you have a little outline of why the product initially was created. Now let’s talk about who really needs it. Here’s an outline of skin types best suited for BB Cream, formula.

– Dry or cracking skin can benefit for BB cream because it will cover, protect and moisturize

– Skin that has deep pores or scaring will notice a different win the overall texture in the skin once applied

– Oily skin, no problem BB cream will help maintain a matte look throughout the day.

– And for anyone that is looking for a great option for a special event, wedding, photo shoot makeup this miracle cream is also for you. BB cream will help your makeup look last longer and will bring out a radiant glow to your skin.

I love the Smashbox Camera ready BB Cream – check it out here.
