What is BB cream?
BB stands for the name blemish balm, beauty balm, or you can also call it a blemish base. Indeed, the product is as good as its name sounds. Even though all the names are correct in defining it, it even does more than what you hear. It is a three-in-one foundation consisting of a primer, foundation, and moisturizer. It provides an excellent way to reduce your skincare routine steps by using one product that caters to different needs.
What does it do?
When you apply it to the skin, Missha BB cream gives you light coverage while being kind to your skin. The three-in-one product moisturizes your skin. You also get smooth coverage without enduring the hassle of applying layer after layer of chemically-treated foundation that can harm your skin. The primer protects your skin, so you don’t have to worry about first covering your sensitive skin with a separate product. The natural and lightweight BB cream is meant to provide you with a long-lasting light coverage rather than a frosty one, making it perfect for an everyday look.
What are the ingredients?
Apart from the primer, foundation, and moisturizer, BB cream contains other products that further add to its benefits. Antiseptic lavender and rosemary are key ingredients that help soothe and refresh your skin, ensuring the product is as kind to your skin as possible.
It also contains aloe vera, vitamin E, and shea butter. If you are a regular user of skincare products, you know the benefits of these ingredients to the skin. The blend creates a perfect product that moisturizes, nourishes, and is suitable for all skin types, including the dry ones.
In addition to that, it has raspberry and bilberry seed oil to keep your skin firm and smooth, creating a youthful look. And lastly, it contains mica to give a good shimmer that illuminates your complexion.
How to apply BB cream?
Like other skincare products, the best part is applying BB cream. First, apply only a tiny amount of BB cream in your hand. Using your brush, dip it lightly into the formula and dot around your face paying attention to the cheeks, forehead, chin, and nose. Then, pat the cream around your face but do not push and smear. Ensure you lightly buff and blend. That helps you to create a thin coverage rather than a frosty layer of foundation.
Pay attention to the neck area to avoid leaving a hard line of foundation. Check if the coverage is enough; if not, tap some few dots and blend to get enough coverage. That way, your BB cream is well laid on your face for the day’s look.
