Posted Tuesday June 26, 2012 1:33 PM GMT
Surely one of the biggest beauty crazes this season, BB creams are taking over the cosmetic market and raking in the big bucks, proving to be one of the most sought after items in the makeup realm to date.
Also referred to as blemish/beauty balm, this miracle formula originated in the Eastern and Southeastern regions of Asia and was used to protect skin after laser procedures and surgery. Soon after, the cream was discovered to have incredible brightening and balancing properties and even reduced the appearance of imperfections on the skin.
Once the buzz made its way across the pond, cosmetic companies in the US began to formulate their very own BB creams and so, a craze was born. This benefits-packed product is a moisturizer, broad-spectrum sunscreen, and treatment serum all in one and it’s become one of our cosmetic staples – especially for summer. It’s the perfect lightweight base we need to achieve all over color, yet still protect our skin from certain aspects of the environment.
So, if you’re in the market for a product that will enhance your complexion in every which way, BB creams are for you! We’ve pulled together eight formulas we love and lean on to protect and beautify our complexion. All are lightweight, moisturizing and illuminate our skin to perfection!
