BB Creams in India: Where Art Thou?

by mehak on June 5, 2011

If you are beauty obsessed, you would know that the hottest poduct to hit the beauty circuit since mineralized makeup is the ‘BB Cream’ or ‘Blemish Balm’ Cream. Touted to be the ‘secret’ behind Korean Actresses flawless skin, BB Creams are a total rage in the east ! This cream was initially used only to heals scars and wounds of actresses post surgery, but local cosmetic companies got a wind of it and made their own formulations of BB Creams..







So What Are BB Creams & Whats the big deal about them?
BB Creams are almost like an all in one face product . They combine the best aspects of a sunscreen, a tinted moisturizer, and anti ageing properties: This is what i could find from another website



General Product Features and Benefits
* Produces a very natural, “no makeup look”

* Provides perfect coverage like a foundation would but since it’s not as thick, it doesn’t clog the pores

* Works pretty much like a tinted moisturizer

* Conceals all types of pigmentation, discoloration, acne and other blemishes

* Has healing properties that soften, smoothen and refine skin

* Encourages skin regeneration to create and maintain youthful skin, so no need for Anti Ageing Creams either!

* You dont need a Sunscreen because these contain an SPF that can go as high as SPF 50!

*  They have Anti-wrinkle and skin-lightening benefits (available for some variants)


Sounds too good to be true? Totally! Im dying to get my hands on one. The problem: NOONE IN INDIA IS MAKING EM ! The Body Shop has a BB Cream scheduled to release, but infuriatingly they have placed it in the Moisture White Shiso Range – marketing it as a whitening cream! Ugh..I am sick of every skin care product becoming a whitening product, but since its the only BB Cream available in the market i might give it a whirl. MAC has also released one internationally, but from what i have heard thats not a true blue BB Cream! Besides that, i would wanna try an actual Korean BB Cream – the real deal! Let’s see, maybe i shall hit E-bay in the next couple of days..



Have you Heard about BB Creams? Do you wanna try it? Do you guys know of anyone launching BB Creams?

Hell yeah I’ve heard of BB creams!!! I even dream about them, my fav brands are Etude house & Missha but 2 problems with that

1) they dnt make BB creams in India skin tones
2) they don’t freaking sell BB creams in India!! Which is weird cause our skin which is exposed to harshest sun and suffers damage NEEDS this product like lungs need O2 ( okay may be not, but you get the point)

TT___TT so imagine my misery!! I would love to try out BB creams in these brands ANYTIME soon!!

BB creams are so TOMBOY friendly!! I solemnly swear that if I get a stead supply of BB cream for my skin, I shall never use foundation ever again!!

BB creams can be easily ordered from Korean vendors if you pay by credit/debit card. Shipping from Korea is about $3… and some vendors even offer free shipping.
