BB Creams, the latest craze in the beauty industry, have taken the US by storm. By now you’ve probably heard of BB Creams, but may not be sure of what they actually are. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
What is BB cream?
BB Cream stands for “Beauty Balm” or “Blemish Balm.” Dr. Christine Schrammek from Germany created the first BB Cream. The original ‘Dr Schrammek Blemish Balm’ was created to help soothe and heal skin after skin peels. The cream began to hide scars and redness. It later became wildly popular in Asia and hit the US with a bang.
What does BB Cream do?
BB Creams are multi-functioning creams that offer skincare benefits and provide natural coverage. Each BB Cream is a moisturizer, primer, foundation, concealer, brightening and can offer anti-ageing properties. Most can be worn alone. You literally put it on and you’re good to go! BB Creams are great for someone who wants light coverage and a healthy glow. They’re perfect for summertime wear, however if you love a full coverage foundation, BB Creams may not be for you.
How are BB Creams different from Tinted Moisturizers?

The difference is that BB Creams tend to have a higher SPF and are more pigmented. Tinted moisturizers usually don’t have many skincare benefits.
What’s the big deal with BB Creams?
