BB Cream – who knew?

BB Cream


Barbara Toner  –  author of What to Do about Everything –  so frankly who am I to argue, emptied her make-up bag onto our lunch table last week to show me her new found favourite product. The BB Cream, I knew nothing of it. Being low maintenance in this one tiny area of my life, example what does primer do exactly…I was gobsmacked to learn the BB is really all you need for a smoothish skin….it also contains sun block and without the heft of  foundation. Barbara uses Garnier but their are many brands out there…

I’ll let you know if it works for me.

P.S their is also a CC cream and a DD cream but more about them later


BB creams are an Asian import that have become super popular in the last two years here in the US. BB creams provide coverage with added skin care benefits like SPF and anti-oxidants–the list goes on depending on what brand you choose. They’re lighter than foundation but heavier than tinted moisturizers. While the additives in BB creams can have the same efficacy as they would in stand-alone serums, be careful about counting on BB creams for adequate sun protection. “My only concern is that since BB cream is generally tinted, women use less on their face,” Manhattan dermatologist Dr. Heidi Waldorf said. Meaning you won’t slather it on the way you do–or should–with a more traditional sunscreen, resulting in inadequate protection.
