Korean BB Cream Vs American BB Cream

We know that American BB Creams have just been discovered and act like a tinted moisturizer but the Korean cosmetics industry took the idea and ran with it creating a cream that has several skin benefits such as SPF, whitening, anti-wrinkle, and nutrients to help improve the health of your skin.

Let me give a little history on how BB Cream was born. When BB cream was originally formulated in the 1960s in Germany to protect patients skin after surgery, it was introduced to South Korea and Japan where healthy-looking, porcelain skin is heavily prized. The cream was hailed as “the secret of Korean actresses,” and was heavily endorsed by Korean celebrities

BB cream is promoted as an all-in-one facial cosmetic product to replace serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation and sunblock. It can be worn alone as a tinted moisturizer, over serum and moisturizer as a regular foundation, and under powder, depending on the desired amount of coverage.

The creams come in a variety of different formulations. Because Korean companies focused initially on the Korean and East Asian markets, they are offered in a limited number of hues. Instead of offering multiple shades for different skin tones, most formulas are designed to oxidize to match the user’s skin tone. The skin-whitening properties of the cream, as sold in the Asian market, are an important element in its popularity.

The cream is promoted as a multi-tasker, an all-in-one treatment, but Korean women mostly use it as an alternative to foundation, especially Western foundations that tend to be too heavy for their taste. The coverage is often mineral-based, and is intended to both cover and treat blemishes such as acne, sun spots and age spots. It also has anti-wrinkle, anti-inflammatory and soothing effects. Several contain hyaluronic acid and Vitamin C

Asian BB Creams hve saturated the Korean Cosmetic industry and there are so many to choose from targeting skin type and needs. One Cream such as VIP Gold Skin 79 designed for dry/combination skin. ( I’m currently using) to name a few has medium coverage that’s buildible. There are several ways I apply the cream. One is with Real Techniques Expert Brush. It gives you that flawless look. The best way is with a beauty blender, you get that air brushed look. AMAZING!! It’s a bit thick when applied and may look a little gray. Once on it oxidizes to your skin tone and allows the skin to look bright and natural without greasiness or feeling tight. It lasts all day and I don’t have to wear SPF; it’s already added. My personal opinion I would use Korean BB Cream any day over American BB Cream.
