Firstly, What are BB Creams?
Beauty Balms or BB Creams were originally developed as a perfect post-procedure cream used to treat, hydrate, prime, protect, and camouflage the skin. Great for all skin types including those with sensitive skin, these versatile “five-in-one” formulas are designed to do it all: treat with high levels of active skin care ingredients; moisturize and smooth dehydrated skin; prime and perfect skin’s surface; camouflage and color correct the skin tone; and protect skin from the sun with SPF. They can be used as a last step for their skin care benefits or used on their own for a light coverage replacement for foundation.
I am obsessed with an all-in-one product like BB Creams that can hydrate, protect and give coverage all at the same time. These magical creams were made popular in Korea and when translated by western beauty companies the creams lost their uniqueness and just became tinted moisturisers. Dr Jart+ is the most popular Korean beauty brand for BB Creams and is now available through Sephora, which makes it a lot easier to get your hands on the original BB formula.
The Original BB Set is a great way to test out the brand and find out which BB suits your skin the most, all with varying levels of SPF and coverage. They are all perfect for light to medium summer coverage and are extremely long wearing. Here’s what’s inside:
- Dis-A-Pore Beauty Balm smooths skin’s texture, covers blemishes and large pores, and tightens the look of pores.
- Black Label Detox Beauty Balm contains purifying botanical active that soothe and smooth blemishes and camouflage uneven skin tone.
- Premium Beauty Balm is infused with anti-aging serum with bio-peptides and features a firming moisture technology for youthful-looking skin.
- Radiance Beauty Balm corrects uneven skin tone while brightening and hydrating.
