Today’s blog is about my top 4 favourite BB creams, which I am sure will be loved by all who haven’t tried these yet. Before I start off, let me first elucidate a bit on the concept of BB creams.
BB creams are short form for Beauty benefits or beauty balms or even blemish balms. These were first invented by a German dermatologist who wanted one stop solution for skin product that woul not just provide coverage to blemishes & problem areas but also protect skin.
BB creams are lighter version of foundation or you can say they are lighter in texture than a foundation, used to even out facial skin tone.
1. In no particular order, the first one is the LA Girl pro BB cream – It’s an all in one skin beautifier that primes, moisturises & enhances skin. Paraben & fragrance free, a multi faceted BB cream every girl should try. Ideal for normal to dry skin.

2. Maybelline Dream Velvet soft matte hydrating foundation- It’s a latest innovation by Maybelline, New York in the BB creams category. It’s the 1st of its kind gel whipped foundation that gives it a super soft velvety feel. It helps perfect complexion giving your skin soft matte finish, just like velvet. It hydrates the skin & is long lasting. It’s consistency is thick gel like which does not run off. Available in 6 shades. Great for oily & normal skin. Only disappointing factor is that is available in only 6 shades (4 online) & does not really cater to a wide array of Indian skin tones,

4. Ponds white beauty BB+ cream – This has been one of my first ever & till date favourite BB creams. It has a thick well pigmented texture that gives a flawless matte finish. It gives a really nice fresh long lasting matte finish. Is powered with SPF 30, which offers additional sun protection benefit. It helps inhibit the transfer of melanin to the surface of the skin revealing a clear & translucent complexion. I have been using it for years & have been raving about this product in my videos too. In summation I would say to give it a must try.
