BB creams are suddenly everywhere in the drugstores. And everybody is excited about the new makeup-meets-skin care category.

BB Creams (Blemish Balm or Blemish Base Creams) have been 2011’s biggest beauty trend, thanks to their popularity in Asia, and the trend is set to be huge in 2012. Garnier was the first brand to jump on the bandwagon and early 2012 we see Clinique and Estee Lauder launch their versions. If you haven't got one in your makeup bag now, you soon will!

Technically, it is a multi-function cream that has coverage and skincare properties. The Korean girls love it because it promises natural-looking skin coverage.

It will give you a good base for makeup like a primer, even out complexion like a tinted moisturiser, cover minor imperfections and redness like a concealer, hydrate your skin like your day cream, brighten and perk-up a dull complexion and some will even protect with SPF. Some also promise healing, soothing and anti-ageing properties.

The magic of the BB Cream means you can wear it alone without foundation and you should get a light, natural finish coverage to give you a health glow and cover uneven skin tone.

Use it when you don't fancy wearing full foundation or if you want to brighten and perk-up your skin between work and a night out. It gives a "no makeup" look, natural coverage without clogging pores, covering blemishes, discolaration and acne. Some have healing properties, skin lightening benefits, while some encourages skin regeneration.

We can say, a bb cream is somewhat all-in-one beauty and skin care cosmetic product. It acts as a:

1) Moisturiser
2) Makeup primer
3) Sunscreen
4) Foundation
5) Concealer
6) Sometimes has additional benefits like lightening, anti-aging, acne healing, soothing etc...

Choose your BB cream according to your needs and skin type. Be careful while selecting the shade as well.

One of the must haves in your makeup bag!!!! Discover beauty and skin care in one single product!
