Blemish balms or BB cream are very popular these days .
We can get BB creams from various brands in market .
They are basically Foundation + Moisturizer + sunscreen all packed in a single product.
Benefits of BB cream :
1.Gives light coverage and evens the skin tone .
2.Acts as a sunscreen so one does not needs to put another sunscreen cream .
3.It moisturizes the skin .
4.Regular usage improves the skin tone .
5.Gives no make up or minimal make up look .
One can find BB creams from various famous brands in market like Ponds BB cream , Maybelline BB cream , Body shop BB, Garnie BB cream etc .
One needs to test and find which one suits their skin best and then continue using that .
I have used Ponds BB cream ,Garnie BB Cream , Maybelline BB cream .
It is light weight and blends well .It has SPF 30 which is very good and regular usage improves skin tone .
My experience with Garnie BB cream was not too good .
Honestly I did not like it .
They are meant to cover uneven skin tone and dark spots .
I have used Lakme CC cream its good .
It has SPF 20 and gives medium coverage .
I have used this product for several months , its good , the only thing I disliked is one need to massage it quite for a long time to get it blend completely in skin .
It gives a soft matte finish and is good for everyday wear .
Its best suited for normal to combination skin , for dry skin one needs to add moisturizer to it or apply moisturizer first then this CC cream .
