BB creams are hit or miss.  There are a lot of brands out there who have launched BB creams in the last year.  It is really hard to figure out which one is right for you.. and really what is a BB cream?  What is the difference between a BB cream a tinted moisturizer and a foundation?

A BB Cream- which stands for Blemish Balm really has been quite popular in Korean and recently has tremendous popularity in the United States. A BB cream has a tall order, it is your Moisturizer, Primer and foundation in one, and usually there is at least one more added bonus either SPF, whitening and brightening aspects, or ingredients to treat blemishes.  

I am very particular about my BB cream because I do expect it to be different from a tinted moisturizer or a skin fcefoundation.  It really needs to smooth out the tone and texture of my skin, cover my blemishes,  spread on easily, on top of it all I should not feel it on my skin.  I am a huge fan of Korean BB creams.

The one thing that a BB cream does not do for me is be my only moisturizer.  I have to apply a moisturizer right after the shower, and then I can apply my BB cream. I think your skin needs to be more on the oily side for it to be a good moisturizer for you. I have more normal to combination skin.

DHC Skin Care, makes one I really like.  It definitely has awesome coverage,  One layer and I am good to go.  It meets all of the standards I have set for a BB cream. DHC BB cream I would consider is worth a try.
