What prey tell is a B. B.??? B. B. stands for "Beauty Balm"
a product that has proven to be be very popular in Europe and Asia. B.B.'s
are the ultimate time saving, multi-tasker, combining skin care, skin protection and a sprinkling of minerals to provide a hint of color and coverage, much like a tinted moisturizer does.. Conceptually brilliant...no?
I was first introduced to a B.B
. when I sampled and reviewed Dr. Jart's Water Fuse Beauty Balm with SPF 25.
I actually use this everyday,
but there is just one caveat--I use it on my hands
. Dr. Jart's Water Fuse BB, unfortunately, only comes in one shade. If I had to describe it, "grout"
might come to mind. I love
how it plumps up my hands and I feel good about using SPF 25 on them, even on cloudy and rainy days. For someone who will spend her remaining days, "fake baking", this is just not something that works for me as a face product. I look forward to the day they expand their shade offerings.
In the meanwhile, my dear friend and client Susan, who is a devoted DivaDebbi
follower, was excited to tell me about how much she is enjoying Garnier's new Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector a.k.a B.B
is the first company in the U.S. to produce a B.B. in the mass class. When she told me it was available in two shades; Light/ Medium and Medium/Dark, I knew I'd be picking it up the latter on my next CVS
