Hi SF ladies,
So we have all heard of foundation (duh!) and moisturizer (double duh!), but some of us haven’t heard of BB Cream…so here I am to tell you all about it!
So what is BB Cream? Very simple actually. BB Cream stands for Blemish Base Cream and essentially its an all-in-one facial product, and my must have, go to, favorite thing, now item! By all-in-one I mean it replaces your serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation, and sunblock! Phew! Can you believe it?! Seriously, that’s the magic of it. BB Creams are almost like a tinted moisturizer, but imagine your tinted moisturizer took steroids, was dating a VS model and bought a Ferrari…then it could join the BB Cream clique.
Of course if you want a super intense look you might still want to pick up your primer and foundation, but for everyday use BB Cream is just incredible.
For an everyday look I tend to still moisturize my face (just because I am a moisturizer freak) before applying the BB Cream, and for more intense looks I tend to also apply serum and primer. I don’t apply foundation just because I don’t tend to use it, but if you do then I would apply a little extra as the BB Cream is not a full coverage product.
I’ve tried tons of different brands until I’ve found my current favorite. I am completely obsessed with the Dior BB Cream as the foundation is a bit more pigmented making it a medium coverage cream. Plus, once applied it doesn’t look as shiny as some of the other ones I’ve tried, it has more of a matte look which I prefer.
Here are my favorites…and remember…for some of these you can ALWAYS take a little trip to Sephora and ask for samples before you make a purchase – especially since some of these creams can be a bit pricey. So try them out first before you take the big purchasing step.
Now get off your fabulous butt and go get some BB Cream…then come back and tell me how much you loved it – because you will!
