What is BB Cream used for?
BB creams are a beauty multi-tasker, offering a mix of tinted lightweight coverage and some skincare benefits. BB cream formulas vary, but most contain pigment, moisturising ingredients, SPF and other ingredients targeting specific skin concerns. So, what does BB cream stand for? The exact origins of this term are contested, but the most commonly accepted answer is ‘beauty balm’.
As a multi-tasking product, BB creams can combine several steps to simplify a skincare and makeup routine. BB creams do the same job as a traditional foundation. Their included skincare style ingredients can also deliver some of the same benefits as your serum or moisturiser.
