A few years ago a brilliant cosmetic company introduced a primer for acneic skin; a product that aided in healing and concealing blemished skin and a makeup primer all in one. The concept was so well received that companies began incorporating that same multi-purpose, single product combination into what we now know as BB cream: Beauty Balm or Blemish Balm. No longer for acne prone skin alone, BB creams are popping up everywhere touting every good and perfect promise for the most clear and glowing complexion imaginable. Drugstore brands to prestige cosmetic giants are assembling to create the latest and greatest in this newly named makeup category.
What Are BB Creams?
Like many cosmetic products, BB creams first gained recognition in Europe and Asia in 2005 and have since gained in notoriety. BB creams are all-in-one moisturizing, priming and sun protection products. Many have anti-oxidants for which the claim may be made to be anti-aging. Who doesn’t want that? Others offer glycerin type bases that make the creams dreamy underneath makeup. And almost all contain a tinted coloring to help cover blemishes and imperfections.
