BB, or Beauty Balm creams fall somewhere between tinted moisturizer and foundation. They provide just enough coverage to blur imperfections and fine lines but are chalked full of added skin benefits. The best BB creams often include SPF, Vitamin E, and will leave your skin feeling hydrated and soft. If spending $30- $40 on a high-end BB cream sounds insane to you, don’t worry. There are plenty of drugstore alternatives that get the job done too. Always remember, BB cream is not an adequate replacement for sunscreen, despite any SPF it may contain.
