What’s the buzz about BB’s?

This is a repost from my new obsession – MOMGONESTYLE – check out my new venture…all things beauty and fashion for the mama’s! 

The latest trend in beauty these days is a BB – Beauty Balm or Blemish Balm. Originated in Asia, this little makeup world secret has been pretty underground for years but is making it’s mainstream debut on the everyday beauty counter in 2012!

SO what is this wonder product?

A Beauty Blam/ Blemish Balm is an all-in-one product containing tinted foundation, moisturizer and SPF. It hydrates, and moisturizers and protects from the sun AND gives your skin an even skintone! The product is a thick cream that goes on your face and neck. A little of this goes a long long way. So be sure to use in dabs and do not lather it on. Unless you feel you need a heavy coverage.

BB’s are used to cover-up imperfections and give your face and neck an even tone. They are really great for oily skin types.

I have been using BB’s for some time now…especially if I have a long day and need to reapply my make-up a few times during a 10 hour marathon. My makeup latches on to the cream and stays on longer.

The only downside for this product is that the shades of skin color they come in are often times limited. So just poke around until you find a fit.

Two Beauty Blams that I have tried and like are:

SMASH BOX Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35 $39
Garnier BB Cream $11.99

Have you tried BB creams? What do you think?
