BB Cream– what is it and where can i get it?


BB Cream (Blemish Balm Cream) is one of the most popular beauty products in Asia. It is said to be originally from Germany as an ointment for patients who have had laser skin surgery because of its soothing and regenerating properties.

Popular Korean celebs were the 1st to start using the cream for beauty uses and because K-Dramas  are pretty big in Asia a craze was formed. BB cream has now spread from Korea to Japan to South East Asia.
