Dictionary: BB Cream
Aaahh, BB Creams. I know that I am very behind the times, because these products have been all over the beauty world for quite some time now, and to be honest, I actually have no clue what they are. I've only had a slight interest in questioning what they're all about, but I've never really found out. Partly because the only ones that I've ever looked at in Superdrug have been a little out of my price range, especially recently when cash has been a little strapped in my direction, so I haven't really been buying that many beauty products. Hence the extreme lack of product reviews recently.
I decided that it was time to discover all about BB Creams, and this is very much a learning lesson for me, as it might be for anyone else who doesn't know what they are. So, if I get anything incorrect, I apologise now :)
However, when the product was launched to an Asian clientele, it was promoted as a lot more than just an after-treatment. Instead it was promoted as a sort of "miracle cream" that contains several existing products, all rolled into one to create a theoretical Super Product:
Moisturiser, Primer, Sun Screen, Foundation and Anti-Aging Cream.
Of course they're also perfect for women with busy lives who just don't have the time to apply lots of products in a morning. I'd love to put myself in this category, but who am I kidding? I fit firmly in the lazy one ;)
I've not come across any negativity personally, but I'd love to hear your thoughts on them:
Have you tried BB Creams, from any brand? What do you think? Are they as good as the marketing lets on? Would you recommend them to people like me who don't know very much about them? Do I need to hurry up and go grab myself some?
