About BB Cream
Apparently, BB cream aka Blemish Balm is very popular in Asia as they give beautiful skin. The product was originated in Germany for treating people who has gone through laser skin surgeries as this is helpful in regenerating the skin. Soon after, the Korean celebs started using them to get a flawless skin and then the skin care companies had the idea to make it available to the public.
It can used as both a skincare and makeup product. This is also suitable for senstive skin and acne proned skin. It can even out skintone, camouflage undereye circles, acne scars and add radiance to the skin without the heavy mask-like effects of a foundation. Prolonged used of the product will also help improve the overall texture of the skin and fade acne scars.
There are lot of BB cream brands out there which also includes properties like SPF, Acne treatment, Anti-Aging, skin whitening and the best of all is that it can be used as foundation and concealer as well. BB cream are only available in Asia and they are available in just 2 colours, Light Beige and Natural Beige, because they are marketed towards the Asian skin which are fair and yellow toned.
There are lot of popular brands out there but some of them are Skin Food, Missha, Skin 79, Etude House and the Face Shop. (Click the picture below to enlarge)
After some research, I was convinced to get this product. I also found a good deal in ebay for about £10 including shipping which was great. I got the Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream because it had some good reviews. I got the colour Natural Beige which is the #23. The product arrived after 10 days which is not bad. The packaging was perfect and inside they have bubble wrapped the product and there was a sample size of skin food product as well 😀 .
The first thing which I liked about the product was the pump which is so easy to use. I also noticed that the colour was too light for my skin tone. I am experimenting at the moment to darken the product so that I can use it. But Overall, I am liking this product at the moment.
