I told you a few times how much I love the BB creams, I love the concept and I love the products that makes your life easier mixing different features and benefits in one.
But before starting to talk about BB creams products lest talk about the concept. About CC and DD creams I will talk about soon in another post.
The BB cream is a concept that comes from Oriental markets, more specific from Korea, but this concept was created in developed in Germany but the korean were who make this concept a trend. There is very different explanations of what BB stands for, Blemish Balm, Blemish Base, Beauty Balm or Beblesh Blam, but in all the cases what basically means is a balm that take care and correct your skin.
And the basic concept is a product to substitute serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation and sunblock. But in depends of the brand you can get more effects in different features and it could be use for just one action like moisturizer, or just like foundation with powder on top or for everything, is up to every person.
In this post I will show you different BB creams that can be found on the market, features, prices and a bit explanation from my part about it, but I won´t give you my personal opinion cause it could be affecting or benefit one more that other, so I will publish an other post to tell you about my favorite BB creams where you will real my personal experience and opinion in some of them.
So know let´s talk about examples.

*BB cream, Selvert, a moisturizer with color as the brand defined, that moisturizers, unifies, lights, cover imperfections, cover dark under eyes areas, prevents aging, protects the skin agains free radicals and give a color touch to the skin.
For all types of skins even sensitives, with SPF15 and with two tones 01 beige-medium and 02 beige medium-toasted. Even being a BB cream I will called it more like a CC cream focus more on covering imperfections.
*BB color skin perfector 5 in 1, Comodynes, with acid hialuronic on the formula, that power up the hydration effects, with vitamin E to prevent the aging, with oats extract as a renewing, regenerating and restructuring features, densifying the skin and leveling up the elasticity and firm effect.

With a foundation perfect skin without looking like having one on, very natural and effective finish.
With one of the highest coverage effects, more like a light foundation than a BB cream, more like a CC cream I would say, but I really like it, the only problem is that it comes just in two tones, and that doesn´t cover all range of skin tones.
*All-in-on BB cream Top Secret, YSL, with a high moistures and healthy skin effect features, with a fresh and light formula that protects, conceals, unify, moistures, lights and gives that healthy finish touch to your skin.
