I’m probably the last girl on the planet that didn’t know what a BB cream is. I was first introduced to BB cream by my Korean guy friend (yes, a guy!). He asked what I have been using for my face and started to talk about the mighty BB cream. At first I didn’t believe because he’s a guy full of jokes but his wife confirmed, so I said to myself, OK, this worth the try. Last week I flew to Jakarta to visit my family and friends and I went to a beauty shop with my sister. She (too) went to get a BB cream. So I asked her about it and she said she feels a lot of good changes in her makeup and face after using BB cream.
Curious about this mighty cream, I decided to give it a try. However, with so many brands offering their own BB cream, I had problems choosing which one. So my sister recommended me to try Body Shop, which I did and WOW! it’s no joke at all, I love this stuff!
Anyway, just in case I wasn’t the only girl who didn’t know what a BB cream is, let me explain a little bit. BB cream stands for blemish balm cream and this cream is more popular in Asia than western countries (go figure!). BB cream works as moisturizer, serum, foundation and sunblock. There are different types of tints as well, depends on your skin tones — I go for the normal/natural tone. What makes it so popular is not only the fact that it blends nicely to your skin as a good foundation for your makeup, but also the convenience that everything you need is available in one bottle/tube. It’s pretty much the secret of every makeup artist out there!
I promise you that once you try it on, there’s no turning back!
