So lets talk BB creams. It is no secret that I have never been a fan of BB creams. I never hopped on the band wagon, which is not to say I did not give them a fair shake. To me however, they seemed to be little more than a glorified tinted moisturizer. And in my opinion, it is NOT a good idea to combine the two. Moisturizer is designed to penetrate your skin… why would you want to put makeup into something that is specifically designed to go into your pores, your fine lines, your parched epidermis?! Makeup should sit nicely on top of the skin where it can do as little damage as possible. Just my opinion though. This all being said, I admit that I have noticed BB cream advances over the past few years. I have seen BB creams creep up the beauty ladder and make waves on the pages of many fashion and beauty mags. So yup, my curiosity was piqued.
Since my recent return to the beauty industry I decided to give it another go with BB creams. I have bought and tried a few, some from the “must have” lists, and some that never made the lists. Coming up… individual reviews on the BB creams I have tried.
