I have noticed there is a lot more BB out there. BB creams for your hair and face. I guess my question is.... What is it and what's the big hype all about.

BB (Beauty balm) cream provides light coverage and has properties like anti aging etc depending on the brand. If you do not have acne and find that foundation can be too heavy for the face at times, BB cream is a good substitute.

Thank you Haley on Oct 31, 2014 @ 10:54 am

Thank you so much. I was looking at my shampoo last night searching the bottle to try and figure out the BB and nowhere did it say what it was.
Good to know about the make up with the Beauty Balm and that it provides a light coverage. I might just looking into trying something new. :)
Thanks again.

As you age, you get fine lines and dark spots. BB creams are to even your skin tone before applying your makeup. They work too.

BB Creams are great on Nov 01, 2014 @ 09:31 pm

Think of it as a great makeup time saver. You get the benefits of anti-aging creams, sunscreen, foundation and moisturizer all in one. They give you light finished look which is great and you don't feel like you are caked in products all day.

"BB" products are typically advertised as light, "good for your skin" products -- things that contain natural ingredients, vitamins, and other beneficial things. Personally, I think it's mostly a marketing ploy. I don't think there's anything particularly special about BB products. I haven't personally experienced any noticeable advantages of them, anyway. I used a CoverGirl tinted moisturizer for quite a while, and when the whole BB trend started, they literally just changed the title on the packaging from "Tinted Moisturizer" to "BB Cream."

Here's an article I found online about BB creams. I think it's helpful.

BB cream for you face can be great. I've found some to be horrible though. Is there anything special about them? I don't know if they're as amazing as they're being advertised. I simply found on I like and gives me good coverage. I'd like it without the "BB" name as well. :) BB for hair? I don't buy it. They're cashing in on the fad.
