I have recently come across BB cream, which is my new go-to product. BB Cream stands for “blemish balm” or “beauty balm” and is a quick and easy way to get great foundation coverage while also getting skin care benefits. Maybelline’s Dream Fresh BB Cream has easily become my favorite makeup product and it’s the one product I will always make sure I have.
Maybelline’s BB Cream comes in five different shades: light, light/medium, medium, medium/deep and deep.
I wear the medium shade and it matches my skin perfectly. According to Maybelline, this BB Cream is an 8-in-1 skin perfector that blurs imperfections, brightens, evens skin tone, smooths, hydrates, protects with SPF 30 and has 0% oils and heavy ingredients. It really does live up to all of these claims without feeling heavy.
To apply your BB cream, just put some on your fingertips and apply it evenly to your face. Then blend it in and you’re all set! It really is a one-step alternative to heavy foundations, and I can’t believe I have gone so long without it.
The first time I tried this was last week and it took me about thirty seconds to put on and blend. My boyfriend was amazed at how quickly I did my makeup that day and said that it looked exactly the same as when I put on three layers consisting of foundation, bronzer and a translucent powder. I assure you that he was right! I have some pink and red scars on my face and this covered them entirely.
I cannot say enough about Maybelline’s Dream Fresh BB Cream. I can honestly say it is my favorite product to date and I recommend that everyone try it. It’s quick, easy and keeps you looking natural while providing great coverage.
