What is a BB Cream? The Next Big Thing in Beauty Industry

BB cream stands for Blemish Balm, Blemish Base or Beauty Balm. This cosmetic is not new. In fact, BB cream was originally formulated in the 60s then later became very popular in Asia most especially in South Korea and Japan where porcelain skin is heavily prized. The BB cream is now becoming the next big thing in the beauty industry and was believed to be the beauty secret of Korean actresses. In other words, BB cream is the holy grail to achieving flawless skin and most-natural looking makeup. It’s like having your face “airbrushed” or “Photoshopped” without the need of using Instagram to filter your skin.

BB cream comes in variety and is also known as the “all-in-one” facial treatment. Some BB creams are moisturizer, primer, foundation and tint all-in-one. Some BB creams are not only made to serve as make up but also to treat skin problems, to serve as whitening cream, sun block or anti-aging treatment.

The BB cream is use is SKIN79 Oriental Gold BB Cream with Lip & Cheek Tint. It was first introduced to me as gift and I love it. This cream is compatible to my normal to dry skin type and definitely compliments the appearance of my skin.
