Now I'm sure you have all heard about B.B. cream as it has been the craze of the moment lately. It has been a huge hit in Asia and has recently been brought to the UK and America where it has been an instant best seller. B.B stands for blemish balm and the cream is meant to 'even tone and boost glow, blur imperfections, smooth lines, give 24hr hydration, and has SPF 15' It has a recommended age use of between under 20 to 40 and is basically a tinted moisturizer but with that little extra..boost.

It only has a very light coverage so it won't hide any blemishes but it will cover any kind of blotchy-ness on your skin and dull the redness of those spots. It just gives you a really nice overall even skin-tone and with a small bit of concealer you cant go wrong. This being called 'blemish balm' however led me to believe it would help get rid of my spots and be better for my skin then foundation but it hasn't really helped that, my existing spots haven't gone (yes they haven't gotten bigger either) and I have gained yet more smaller spots. So I do believe on the skin front it's better to use my mac powder although this does give me a guilty-free feeling and it is very moisturizing so I'm drawn between the two! Which should I wear on a everyday basis?? Heeelp
In these pictures (before and after) it doesn't really show much difference but in real life my skin looks a lot smoother and even and I have a much healthier skin tone.
This product costs around £7.49 and I don't actually know if I would buy it again, yes its good and has done what it says it's meant to on the box but I don't know if prefer powder then tinted moisturizer so I'm a bit drawn between two products at the moment. It does have a good staying power but you will need to top up on concealer if you want a day long flawless coverage.
Have any of you tried bb cream? What did you think?
