What are BB Creams? Otherwise known as Beauty Balms or Blemish Balms - these have taken the beauty world by storm lately even though they have been on the Asian beauty scene for quite some time. These balms are multitasking creams that work to address many skin issues that we women deal with. The formula was reportedly created by German Dermatologists who were looking for a treatment for patients who underwent laser skin surgery - they created a balm that had soothing and skin regenerating properties. It was discovered by various Asian actresses for beauty purposes and well...so the craze began in Asia. BB Creams are a all-in-one product - they can act as a primer, a tinted moisturizer, a foundation, concealer, an anti-aging serum, pimple treatment and sunscreen. Wow - talk about the perfect multipurpose/multitasking product for mom's with very little time to spend on getting themselves ready in the morning!!!
