Although 2019 is the year of CC and DD creams, don’t think that BB creams have lost their popularity. They are still great solutions for various types of skin and for women of different ages, so it should come as no surprise that cosmetic manufactures are still struggling to come up with the best and most innovative BB cream.
What’s New in 2019?
The fact that BB creams were not so perfect is definitely a thing of the past since cosmetic manufactures have come up with great solutions for making BB creams the go-to products of the year. The new BB creams have more color options, nicer smell, provide better SPF, have a lot more anti-aging and nourishing properties and are created to work with various types of skin, from normal to sensitive.
Also, a lot of organic cosmetic producers have jumped on the BB cream train and you can now find plenty of natural alternatives to the classic BB creams, alternatives that are better for your skin and sometimes cost a lot less than a designer BB’s.
Do We Still Need BB Creams?
With CC and DD creams coming fast from behind, the question on everyone’s mind is if we still need blemish balm creams or we can just replace them with the new ones. BB, CC and DD creams are not the same. While BBs offer a low level of coverage and mostly no corrective properties, CC creams make up for it by providing you with a multitasking solution that does more than just moisturize and color a little. DD creams (daily defense) on the other hand are face and body creams that cover imperfections and offer a higher level of hydration than BBs or CCs.
So to answer the question, yes, we do still need BB creams. And remember, they have been around since the 1960’s, why should they leave now?
I made a list with the best BB creams releasing in 2019, keep reading to find out more about it.
Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream
Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream combines the benefits of a BB cream with the ones of a healing cream.
Released in the US in the spring of 2014, the mew Maybelline BB cream combines the benefits of a classic BB cream with the ones of a clearing perfector. The new BB cream contains 2% Salicylic Acid for acne treatment and is advertised as an 8-in-1 beauty balm.
What other women thought about the new BB cream:
“The maybes line dream pure BB 8-in-1 beauty balm skin clearing perfector. It is a nice product. You can wear alone or under makeup.”
“I really like this BB cream! My skin is very dry in the summer, but this BB cream is moisturizing.”
“It is the perfect color maybe a little bit dark (I bought the light) but during summer it will match my skin perfectly.”
This Maybelline cream ca be great for women who are on the run and don’t have time to apply acne treatment, hydrating cream and foundation but do keep in mind that you should take extra care of your skin if you are prone to acne, don’t leave it all to the BB.
The Body Shop Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream
The Body Shop Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream is a new product, released in 2014, which not only makes you look young but also treats your skin.
The Body Shop released a BB cream especially for troubled skin, in their Tea Tree collection, which promises to instantly cover blemishes and imperfection, give you a shine-free complexion and a fresh look. The BB cream contains organic tea tree oil from Kenya and it is similar the other products in this collection in terms of small and packaging.
What other women thought of this new BB cream:
“The new BB cream from The Body Shop is perfect for blemished spot prone skin and comes in 3 universal shades.”
“It’s so smooth that it blends in super easily – in fact, you can barely see it on my hand!”
However, this new BB cream from The Body Shop does not contain any SPF so make sure to first apply some sunblock. And if you are going to use the anti-bacterial BB creams, it would be a nice touch to also use an organic or more natural sunblock if you want to see some improvements on your skin.
