I've seen it everywhere now, but I'm so unsure of what it is exactly. Why is it different than tinted moisturizer? Does it cover better? What brand is best?


Any thoughts?

I had no clue what this was so I had to do a google search! LOL!  This is what I found:

BB cream is promoted as an all-in-one facial cosmetic product to replace serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation, and sunblock.[3] It can be worn alone as a tinted moisturizer, over serum and moisturizer as a regular foundation, and under powder, depending on the desired amount of coverage.[2]

Sounds interesting for sure!  If you find one you like, let us know.  I'd be interested in using it for sure!

I've tried many and none are that great, none was able to do all that they claimed. I would suggest watching some youtube videos - maddjjas is a really good channel with reliable information, reviews are comprehensice with swatches of various bb creams. The next wave is cc creams, though and I've just watched a wonderful review on one of them. rachel anise aka reviewed the amorepacific cc cream. I'm still searching for that hg bb or cc cream though. good luck.
