What is BB Cream?

The first time I really got curious about BB cream was when I saw a friend and her skin was GLOWING! Her skin looked soft, bright and luminous. I immediately asked her what she had done differently because I needed my skin to look like hers, stat! She told me she had just gotten a new BB cream, and I was immediately on board.

So what is BB Cream?  BB stands for “beauty balm.” It’s a combination of moisturizer, primer, sunscreen, foundation and (some contain) anti-aging cream.


BB Cream can vary from a sheer, tinted moisturizer, to a thicker, full coverage appearance.  I use BB cream most often when I am in a hurry, but still want to look put together. Or when I am going to the pool or the beach and want a little coverage plus some SPF. You could apply it with a Beauty Blender or a foundation brush, but I always just apply it with my fingers because it’s such a no fuss product.

So, what what kind is right for you? I found this handy link when I was picking what brand I wanted to try.
