What Is BB Cream?
For those who don't know, the BB in "BB Cream" can stand for a few different things (blemish balm, blemish base, beauty balm, to name a few), but the best BB creams generally all have similar functions. BB creams can be used as foundation, moisturiser and a sunblock skincare product all in one. Not to be confused with CC creams (colour control/colour correction cream) which is generally used to decrease skin redness, sallowness or improve an uneven skin tone. It's important to know the difference between the two when it comes to bb cream vs cc cream, as the two generally have different uses.
What Does BB Cream Do?
BB cream is used for variety of reasons, including evening out skin tones, refining pores and adding a matte effect and covering imperfections like blemishes, dark circles under the eyes, red skin and signs of fatigue. BB cream also illuminates your complexion, leaving your skin with a natural glow while providing light, fast absorbing moisture and protecting the skin against sun damage, environmental factors and signs of premature ageing.
