What is BB Cream?

What is BB Cream?

What on earth is BB cream? I asked myself this question when I tested Estee Lauders new product under the same name. Coincidentally I was reading the latest American Vogue that same week & fell upon an article entitled ‘BB Creams, the new makeup Phenomenon’. My curiosity intensified as I read about how BB cream (short for ‘blemish balm or beauty balm’) is taking the cosmetic world by storm, dominating the Asian markets & now heading to the States.

I was fascinated to read how BB Cream was first conceived by a German dermatologist as an all in one beauty balm for ‘post procedure’ skin. It is equal parts tinted moisturizer, sunscreen, mattifier, & anti ager & it is designed to even out skin tone, soothe irritation & control oil & shine.

Estee Lauders BB Cream is the only one I have tried, although just about all of the makeup companies are now doing them. It comes in a small, handbag friendly tube & has a lovely smooth texture that literally melts into the skin with a signature cucumber scent that I found quite soothing. Its easy to apply with your finger tips & gives the skin minimal coverage, similar to a tinted moisturizer. Lauders BB Cream also has an SPF 35 & is loaded with anti oxidants, hence the anti aging benefits. You can wear BB Cream on its own for a natural fresh faced look, or under your foundation, where it acts as a primer, smoothing out the skin & preparing it for makeup.

With so many new products on the market, it great to find something that I think will really take off. As a makeup artist I always like to prep the skin with a Smashbox Primer before foundation, as it smoothes out the skin & literally fills in the pores. I have found BB Cream to do a similar job & with all the skin care benefits as well I think its a wonderful new product. On counter now for an RRP of $83
