First let me say that this is NOT a sponsored post in any way shape or form. I heard about BB Creams a while ago, started researching them like crazy and reading reviews on every site for every brand and watching demos etc. trying to figure out what all the rage was about and what kind I should buy.
BB = beauty balm.
To make a long story short, it originated in Asia and became super popular and now it is storming in the US.
We all know foundation isnt ‘good’ for our skin.. unless it mineral based it could be good for your skin, but more likely than not, your foundation does nothing for your skin. Which is where BB creams come in. They have tons of anti-oxidants and anti aging ingredients and offer SPF so while its on your face, it is nourishing and protecting. Not only that but it covers up your blemishes and acts as a foundation.
I thought it was too good to be true.. so after I did all my research I went and bought the Garnier BB Cream and turns out it actually is what it is talked up to be.
I am a foundation girl. I like coverage and I like an even face and I was nervous this would be too light weight. I would say it is in between a tinted moisturizer and a foundation but more on the foundation side. This stuff has all the coverage you need but the best part is that it makes your skin look so dewy and fresh after, which is my favorite thing. I have only tried the one kind, Garnier, but if I wasn’t going to buy Garnier I would have bought Smashbox or Dr. Jart as I heard great things about both and read all their reviews which all raved how great it was, but I just thought the price was too much.. so I went with the cheaper one.
I have posted 6 BB creams that I found got the best reviews and had the best ingredients, etc. So hopefully you guys will give it a try!
If you are skeptical like me, I am going to do a demo on my youtube channel showing how I put it on, and explain more about it next week, so watch that and you can decide if you want to purchase or not!
