urban

 

Sorry for the long break! It’s been a little crazy at school, but I haven’t been forgetting about new articles and keeping an eye on Asian cosmetic trends and new products. More updates are coming after this!

Looks like the BB Trend in the West isn’t going to die time anytime soon. My prediction is that we will be seeing much much more products coming out especially from the bigger companies. This list is going to be long so enjoy! I will be just highlighting the ‘special’ features in the BB Cream and the ingredient list if it’s available.

What it is:
A five-in-one beauty balm that minimizes pores, lines, wrinkles, and redness instantly and gives you significantly firmer, more-lifted skin in eight weeks.


What it does:
Blur flaws in seconds and get serious antiaging benefits in just eight weeks. This lightweight, velvety, oil-free miracle works instantly and over the long term. Naked Skin Beauty Balm is invisible on your skin (zero rub-off): the universal shade glides on and dries down to a translucent, flawless finish that works on most skintones. While many beauty balms are tinted to provide coverage, Naked Skin diffuses light with high-tech pigments to give you amazing, natural, naked-looking skin that keeps getting better every week. Unlike a lot of beauty balms, Naked Skin delivers measurable antiaging benefits—and the claims to prove it.


What else you need to know:
The multitasking Naked Skin is like an instant retoucher in a tube. Optical blurring pigments instantly even out skintone and minimize pores, lines, wrinkles, and redness. SPF 20 shields skin from sun damage and Pepha®-Protect helps inhibit DNA damage.

14. La Roche Posay Hydreane Bb Cream

 

lrd

 

La Roche Posay made a BB Cream for the Asian Market last year, and now it has finally reached the shores here in Europe! However I don’t think the ingredients and the formula are the same. The packaging is also extremely different. The SPF is 50 in the Asian version, and only 30 here. Plus the European version is from the hydrating line of La Roche, while the Asian version is from the Sun Defense line.  

In only one step, it moisturizes, soothes and protects the skin. The BB mineral pigments melt in the skin for an immediately unified, evened and fresh-faced complexion. Its smooth and non-greasy texture softens and supples the skin. Tested under dermatological control. Paraben-free. Non comedogenic. Hypoallergenic. Nickel-controlled*. Available in 2 shades.

    I still prefer Korean BB creams.
    Btw, i wish you would post the allure beauty awards and other beauty awards for 2012 like you did the previous year

  • Katrina B

    I have tried a couple of Korean BB creams, but so far they’ve been too light for my skintone. I was recommended Smashbox Camera Ready BB cream at Sephora because it claims to control oil, but I hesitated because of the price.
