What is BB Cream?
BB Cream (also known as Blemish Balm) is a very popular product in Asia (Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore etc) since 2007. It doubles up as both a skincare and makeup product.

BB Cream was first used by Korea stars after they receive facial treatments. It has healing properties and also protects their skin from the harmful sun and environment. It is such an amazing product that its popularity was soon widely known.

Dr Jart+ and Skin79 are among the most popular brands among Korea stars. Dr Jart+ is developed by dermatologists and its ingredients have been scientifically certified for effectiveness and stability. Skin79 is developed using natural plant extracts and is an ISO9001 certified company.

BB creams have numerous skincare properties combined in just 1 product - UV protection, anti-wrinkle, wrinkle improvement, whitening, moisturising, skin regeneration, and oil control. In addition, they can also conceal pigmentations/discolorations like acne marks, freckles, and dark eye circles. They provide wonderful coverage without clogging pores.

Coupled with skincare and makeup properties, BB cream greatly simplifies our tedious makeup process. Furthermore, we no longer have to worry about wearing foundation for long hours fearing what harmful effects foundation brings to our skin. With prolonged usage, BB cream can even improve our skin texture.

BB cream only comes in one shade. After application, the cream will magically blend into your natural skin colour within seconds.

How to use:
After skincare, spread appropriate amount on face. There is no need to apply sun block, makeup base or foundation.
However if you need additional sun protection, apply sun block before BB cream.
You may also dust loose powder after BB cream if you like a matt look. Skip loose powder if you want a dewy look.
Please kindly note that you will need a makeup remover to remove BB cream completely at the end of the day.
