What is a BB Cream?
stands for Blemish Balm, and they were initially developed by a German
dermatologist in the 70's to calm and soothe redness after facial peels.
Imported, then into South Korea, BB Creams created a huge buzz, attracting the attention of major actresses who quickly shared their new beauty secret. It was an overnight success all over Asia!Now BB Creams have made it to North America, allowing people to simplify their beauty routines and get renewed, evened and hydrated skin in 1 step!
I am new to the BB scene and I researched all of them online and this one was always in the top 5 in everything I saw. So I decided to try it and so far, I like it. It is light, the scent doesn't bother me to much, and gives me a glow. I never wear foundation as I find it to heavy on my skin. This BB cream is so light. Only wish it had sunscreen in it, then it would be perfect.
Too much fragrance added and feels sticky on my skin. Not good for my sensitive skin.
Like the light coverage, but I do find I have to use a powder after or it's abit shiny.
Seeing that I hardly ever wear make up, I find this product to be a nice, light concealer (for when I'm feeling a little tired and/or splotchy looking). I find I have to put a bit of loose powder over top of it (it is a tad bit greasy)
This product is truly amazing. Just threw out my other foundation as it was causing breakouts. Tried the Garnier BB cream and it gave a really nice look to my face and evened out my skin tone but still felt light weight. Would definitely recommend to my friends.
I really like this product even though it's a bit pricey. It makes my skin look better without making it look like I am wearing makeup. It it very practical and convenient - very quick to use.
For this price i guess it's ok. It's like a tinted cream but if you have oily skin you may shine with that product. But overall i was pretty satisfied.
From what I heard about BB creams, this was disappointing. It also made my skin breakout. Not worth it for the coverage or the protection (no SPF). I would not recommend. Anyone want my leftover??
For an Eastern European complexion the Light/Medium is way too dark. Unfortunately this is the lightest shade available.
Reading the raves it is disappointing to not be able to use the product as it sits in my make-up bag after only one trial use.
I really like the natural look and the glow, I use this as foundation over a face sunblock, it is very greasy though, and there is a strong smell, I dont personally mind the smell I find it pleasant.
Leaves my skin looking very greasy so I can't leave the house without setting it with a loose powder. Also, it's very light coverage product and has a bit of a strong scent to it. I like the concept of the product but it really doesn't live up to what it claims.
This BB cream is terrific and has so many benefits. I use it instead of foundation and it gives skin a nice glow (not shine), and I have very sensitive skin. Agree with other reviewers -- need to add SPF to this product.
When I heard about BB creams I had to try this one. Love this a whole lot more than a full face foundation. I don't like the feel and that it looks like a mask. Looks more natural. Can't beat the price. Does what it says it does. Does not affect my sensitive skin.
