“Beauty Brighteners” or “Beauty Balms”, also known as BB creams, are made to conceal, brighten and protect your skin. It’s your primer, moisturizer, foundation, SPF combined into one product. Isn’t that just SO amazing?
Nowadays, BB creams often contain antioxidants and ingredients that blur out your imperfections for a more dewy look. BB creams also provide less coverage than a foundation, but definitely more than a tinted moisturizer.
So, if you’re not too keen about foundations and makeup or if you sleep too much and have only 10 minutes to get ready, just put some of your BB cream on and you’re good to go! It’s best for normal and dry skin types as BB creams usually promise a dewy finish which is attained by loading the cream with hydrators. However, they may also work for skin types if the formulas are matte and made for oily and acne prone skin! So, read ahead to find out which drugstore BB creams are the best ones out there!
