Everything worth knowing about BB creams part 1

I wrote many times about using BB Dr G Asian BB cream, and today I present the first part of a series of notes about BB creams. This series will be a kind of compendium of knowledge about BB creams. I hope that these entries will be very helpful to you and allow you to choose the best BB cream.

BB cream
What is BB cream?
The name BB cream is Beauty Balm or Blemish Balm. It is often translated as a cream emphasizing beauty or simply as a "beauty cream". BB creams are not new, but they have only recently become extremely popular due to access to information. Currently, many cosmetics companies offer BB cream, but in my opinion Asian BB creams are the best.
BB cream combines foundation, moisturizer and sunscreen. The best BB cream can hide even the larger imperfections (depending on the properties of the cream).
CC and DD creams are also more and more often visible, however I remain loyal to BB Dr G.
Cream for acne skin?
BB cream is suitable for acne skin. He can hide imperfections and also matte the complexion.
However, it all depends on what type of cream you choose. Dr G BB creams that I have used so far (hydra intensive, pore +) are BB creams intended for problematic skin. Hydra intensive was, however cream for dehydrated skin, by the way is this good moisturizing face cream, while pore + it skin cream with imperfections.
The effect we will get after BB cream
BB hydra intensive and pore + cream cover imperfections very well, making the skin smooth and flawless. Both BB creams that I have used so far have wet finish, which may not suit everyone. I like this effect very much, because even when my skin is gray and I haven't provided it with enough sleep, it looks very good (fresh and radiant).
How to use BB cream?
Apply BB cream to cleansed skin. The method of application is different:
  • brush
  • sponge
  • patting with your fingertips
You have to decide for yourself which way is best for you, but I recommend using Beauty Blender to apply it, because the cream blends perfectly with the skin with this sponge.

    With my fingers ... I've heard about a beauty blender but the price for a sponge is a bit bigger than me, i.e. I prefer to invest this money in cosmetics 😉

      Beauty Blender is not such an expensive investment at all. I use one sponge for half a year, so I spend PLN 100 for a year. I am very satisfied. According to me, using it as recommended by the manufacturer is just a marketing ploy to earn more.

    I use BB Dr G Brightening Balm cream. Although the color could be brighter and coarsely spread on the face, I think it is brilliant! Covering + durability + blending with the skin - the face looks beautiful and natural all day !!!
