BB cream: all-in-one cosmetic beauty and skincare product
Although there have always been multi-funtion creams (color moisturizing, skin-regenerating products with UV protection factor, …) never before there had appeared such a number and variety of this “all in one” cosmetic product.
The great advantage of these cosmetics is that in a single product, we have a moisturizer cream, antiblemish coverage, restorative and whitening, colored primer foundation and sunscreen protection.
The BB creams (“BB”, “Blemish Balm”) are of German origin and were created by dermatologists to apply them as anti-inflammatory treatment after certain skin surgeries. Due to its skin lightening effect, these creams achieved great success in the Asian market, where they spread and got popular.
The trend that started in East Asia spread to the rest of the world and different skin tones of BB cream were produced (less grayish and more golden pigments) for all skin types. Although there are many brands that have launched different shades for the same product, the BB creams are suitable for all skin types.
As time goes by, medium and high range cosmetic brands were encouraged to launch their own BB creams, one of the long-awaited products these days. Here you have some of these “Beauty balms”:
