BB Creams {what to know}.

BB Creams seems to be all of the rage. I first read about them on my 9 hour flight home from Germany in Marie Claire. What are they? Who makes them? Well hopefully I can break it down for you, with the help if Wikipedia!

"BB creams come in a variety of different formulations and qualities mainly perceived as being anti-inflammatory, regenerative and having a soothing effect. Some are said to have skin whitening or brightening properties. Others are said to be anti-acne or anti-wrinkle, some are intended to even out skin tone, and yet others to lighten blemish scars. BB creams are sometimes used like a primer under foundation, and if tinted may supposedly replace foundation and some newer ones are advertised as having functions of primer, foundation, moisturizer, sun block, pore minimization and skin refining together, making them an economic skin care solution."

I love the idea of this! Especially skin brightening, I'm not so sure about whitening, even though white skin is seen as a sign of beauty in many Asian cultures. Sephora has an amazing collection to start with! For $11.99 you can try out Garnier's and once you fall in love; which I know you will, you can invest! 

Stay Beautiful! xx
