Another BB cream review! ..this BB cream I purchased back in November 2015, and I'm not super crazy about it. I thought I was at first, but as I keep using it, it isn't really up there with my faves! I do not find it plays the multi-task role of an actual BB cream/product, however I do like it somewhat as a tinted moisturizer for my very fair skin. It is offered in two tints, light and medium.
FYI: BB creams are short for beauty balms or blemish balms. They were first developed in Germany by a dermatologist who wanted a single cream that would protect skin and provide coverage after laser treatments. The all-in-one formulation became a sensation in South Korea and then spread throughout Asia. 2010-2011 was when the BB cream really hit worldwide fame!
I'm using it, to use it up, really, for colder times when my skin is in need of an extra layer of moisturizing, ..applied over my moisturizer and/or sunscreen, and when my skin is not in a break-out mess aka not experiencing an overload of red pimply nastiness! I struggle with break outs still today, at this ripe older age! ..whoever said 40 is the new 20, btw is a massive liar! ..seriously, let's just be honest about 40, it is not the new 20 or the new 30, because when I was 20 and 30, I had boundless amounts of energy, and I had the patience of a saint! Patience was something that came easy for me! (cue in fits of laughter from people that know me now) ..I do not have that same amount of time left on this earth, people, so yeah patience is not my virtue any longer! ..if I'm waiting in line for 15 minutes to get one cup of overpriced coffee, I don't huff and puff, I just leave the premises and remind myself not to put myself in that situation again! Ha! ..patience and energy are slowly diminishing as the moments move forward, and at times what seems like at lightening speed! ..so listen up, my fellow 'rebirthers' ..40 is 40, period-embrace it, accept it! ..And now back to the review!.. ;)
