What is a BB cream?
BB creams have been popular in Asia for a number of years and they’re just now available in North America. “BB” stands for blemish balm or beauty balm. Initially, they were originally developed for laser surgery patients to help soothe, protect and heal it.
BB creams that are designed for the public are multi-functional products, designed to hydrate, protect and heal the skin. While different brands will vary slightly, a BB cream will give you some or all of the following: no-makeup look, an even complexion, hydration, sun protection, soothe sensitive skin, conceal blemishes and offer anti-aging properties.
I’m not one to review a product on a whim. I’ve been using this product for 2 months now and I have come to a decision; It is amazing. I have literally stopped using foundation and use this as my base coat.
Now I realize that I will need something very powerful and expensive to completely rid of my rosacea , however, this balances my skin while feeling fresh and hydrated. Not many moisturizers or foundations can accomplish this with my skin. As well, it doesn’t burn like many over the counter products that I’ve experimented with.
Initially, Garnier was kind enough to provide 2 Medium/Dark Miracle Skin Perfector BB Creams to me. However, much to your dismay I have already given one away. My friend, who recently went through brain cancer and is in remission, has experienced some issues with her face and I gave one of them to her. I just couldn’t think of a person more deserving!
However, I have kept one for you! On May 14th, my 18th Wedding Anniversary, I will be giving away 1 Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector to one of my readers (valued at $20.00 CDN). Offer valid to Canadian Residents Only. Good Luck
