BB Cream: Review (Finally!)

A while back, I did a post on the up and coming beauty innovation BB Cream. I was incredibly curious to try the product because its ability to combine cosmetic concerns with skincare. In review, BB Creams are comparable to that of a tinted moisturizer in terms of their consistency and coverage, but can also act as a makeup primer, contain anti-aging ingredients, protect against sun damage, and even out skin tone. Well, I finally got my hands on some BB Cream and thought I would share my thoughts.

BB Cream Used:

{In the shade “Fair”}

To put it simply, I have problematic skin. Unfortunately for me, BB Creams’ coverage is quite sheer and does not cover what I feel needs to be concealed. I think that someone with great skin would benefit more from BB Cream than someone who struggles with their skin like I do. I’ve not completely giving up on BB cream, however. Mixing it in with my Make Up Forever HD Foundation creates a nice finish! I also have been experimenting with various skincare regimens and as soon as I find one that works for me, I hope I can wear lighter makeup like BB Cream confidently.

Well, that’s my take on BB Creams! It is great for someone who only needs sheer coverage or for summer, but for those of us who prefer a heavier coverage may need to combine it with other foundation or look elsewhere.

Take care and good luck,



BB Cream-Worth All The Hype?

Working as a cashier at Sephora, I am well aware of the latest trends and innovations in makeup and skincare. Lately, BB Cream, short for “beauty balm” or “blemish balm,” has been attracting attention. It first gained popularity in Asia, but has recently started making its way to the United States.

BB Creams’ claim to fame is their revolutionary formulation that combines skincare benefits with cosmetic concerns. BB Creams hydrate, contain anti-aging ingredients, protect against sun damage, cover up minor pimples, work as a makeup primer, and even out skin tone. They can be worn alone or layered under makeup (but, a skincare expert I work with informed me that many women feel that BB Cream gives enough coverage on its own).

Sounds like quite the revolutionary product, right? For sure! But like many, I know I need to see it to believe it. So, on this upcoming Friday, I’ve decided I’m going to purchase my own bottle of BB Cream and see if it’s worth all the hype. In the meantime, do some research! Sephora.com has an entire page dedicated to BB Creams (which I will link here).

Expect updates soon from my end soon, but have any of you tried BB Cream? Leave your testimonials in the comments below!

Take care and good luck!
