You might have heard the term BB cream being thrown around the beauty scene recently. Blemish balm is what the abbreviation ‘BB’ stands for and from its slightly miss leading name, you might believe it to be some kind of new spot treatment. Instead, it has multiple functions, only one of which being anti-inflammatory. BB cream is a combination of a primer, lightweight foundation, concealer, anti aging moisturizer and a sun block! This all-in-one skin care hybrid is being called this years Holy Grail product in the UK. Perfect for freeing up our wallets so we can spend more money on other goodies J
German doctor Christine Schrammek, the genius behind the creation originally designed the cream as an ointment for her patients who had undergone skin peels. Its taken the beauty market by storm in Korea, Japan and China and now is starting to spread to other places on the globe.
Finally the UK have caught on and BB creams will be heading our way soon J *YAY* and I can’t be more excited! I have been searching on Ebay trying to get my hands on some to try out for a while now; but I have no need.
Garnier will be selling their version of the BB cream; ‘Miracle Skin Perfector Daily All in One BB cream’ from August.
However, there’s even more good news if you cant wait that long. Those of you who will be jetting off to various destination on holiday this summer, from July you’ll be able to buy Estee Lauder’s Cyber White Brilliant Cells Extra Intensive BB cream (£26),
Mac’s Prep and Prime BB cream (£22.10)
or Clinique’s Defense Age BB cream (£19) when passing through Heathrow Airport.
I do hope it’ll live up to all the hype! Let me know if you’re thinking about getting some J
