Best BB Cream For Your Skin

16 Oct

BB and CC creams are ALL the rage right now.  Woman in Korea have been using them for years but the cosmetic trend in the US has just started to pick up over the last few years.

What is a BB cream?  BB creams are essentially and All-In-one product that acts as a moisturizer/foundation/sunscreen.  Some of them have skin correcting anti-aging ingredients, some have ingredients to correct redness or dark spots.  Really, they are all quite different.

As they aim to replace all your other products, sometimes you just need to layer.  If you have super dry skin you might need to apply moisturizer first.  Bad breakout? Probably need concealer or even foundation over the BB cream.

Best For Oily Skin:
L’Oréal Paris Studio Secrets Magic Skin Beautifier B.B. Cream ($10.95, lorealparisusa.com)

Best For Pale Skin:
Dr. Jart+ Water Fuse Beauty Balm SPF 25 PA++ ($34, sephora.com); one shade

Best For Dark Skin (and Medium and Light):
Maybelline Dream Fresh BB 8-in-1 Beauty Balm Skin Perfector SPF 30 ($7.44, maybelline.com)

I personally need a more medium-full coverage Foundation so I have yet to find a BB cream that can replace my go-to 100% Pure Foundation.  But if you are one of those people lucky enough to not have to wear foundation, a BB cream might be perfect for you.     -kassi
