Remember when I told this blog about the Sknifood BB creams? I am a fan of Skinfood BB creams ever since. I love how they smell delicious and it really helps my breakouts at bay. It also helps cover my unwanted blemishes and imperfections. Actually, BB creams are now the fuss these days.
So you guessed right, I bought a new one to try.
I got this BB cream from Phoebe of Phoebeann.me as a birthday gift. I saw this before from Watson’s thinking it’s the Skin79 Beblesh Balm cream. The packaging is so much alike.
Facts about BB Creams:
BB cream, also known as Blemish Balm, Blemish Base or Beblesh Balm, is a cosmetic item sold mainly in East and Southeast Asia.
Originally formulated in Germany it was initially used by dermatologists to help laser surgery patients protect, soothe and refine highly sensitive skin while providing light coverage for post-laser scars, acne, and other blemishes.[citation needed
BB creams come in a variety of different formulations and qualities. Some are said to have skin whitening or brightening properties. Others are anti-acne, some are anti-wrinkle, some are intended to even out skin tone, and yet others to lighten blemish scars. BB creams are sometimes used as a primer under foundation, and if tinted may even replace foundation and some newer ones will have functions of primer, foundation, moisturizer, sun block, pore minimization and skin refining together which can save time and money on make-up
This one is yellow toned, which is good for Pinay skin instead of the beige tone that’s common on BB creams. I like this compared to Dr. Jart. Purederm is for oily skin so it really doesn’t suit my dry or sometimes combination skin, not to mention the shade is also too light for my morena complexion but it’s still nice to use coz all it takes is put just a minimal amount and spread it evenly.
Available at Watson’s though I hope there’s Skin79 here in the Philippines. Not sure.
