What Are BB Creams?

The Next Thing in Skin Care: BB Creams

The BB cream craze started in Korea and Japan, but now they're finally hitting the States, and we couldn't be more excited. Similar to a tinted moisturizer, these creams can be worn solo or under your makeup, but go the extra mile by offering skin care benefits galore. In short, they'll leave your skin dewy, glowing, and sun protected. Watch our video to get the full scoop on three favorites.

I use BB creams from The Face Shop and Etude House, all from Korea than foundation. It sinks better on my skin. I get more compliments and people think i have flawless skin plus it's an overall beauty item in one!

I've tried all sorts of BB Creams when I lived in Asia and I could never go back to regular foundation after that. My favorite overseas was Freshel by Kanebo.The common complaint with BB creams in the US is that they're not as pigmented as their original Asian ones. They're too much like tinted moisturizer in sheer coverage, and they are mistaken treated like tinted moisturizer too (You still need to use your regular moisturizer, ladies!). The only one I've been interested in so far is the Boscia BB Cream.

I love BB Cream! I have acne prone skin so I was a bit skeptical about getting it. I did 3 days worth of researching and decided to give it a try. I'm currently using one of Missha's BB creams and I am at three weeks, my skins looks better than before!

Yes, BB creams are fabulous! Thanks for your video. You've now introduced BB creams to those that are not aware of it! ;)

I haven't tried Missha yet, but I know they have some BB creams that will suit darker skin tones. We've received some other brands recently. We'll roll out some reviews soon. I like BB creams a lot, and it'll be interesting to see if they take off in the States like they have in some Asian countries.
