Are you looking for a product to cover up blemishes without looking like you just dipped your face in a bowl of foundation, or something you can quickly apply on your face for a healthy glow that lasts the entire day? Most people have never heard of BB Cream. BB Cream, or blemish balm cream, is a mix between foundation and a moisturizing sunscreen that both looks and feels natural. Many BB creams also contain skin lightening ingredients to reduce scarring and hyperpigmentation.
It's the most amazing creation on earth and my go-to item when I am rushing out the door in yoga pants and sneakers. BB Cream is great if you want to cover up blemishes but don't want to wear a full face of makeup.
I have searched high and low for the best BB Creams, and these are the three that have claimed top spot in my book for coverage, wearability, and cost.
