BB Cream 101

The world of foundations and BB creams can seem intimidating at times, but don’t fear,  OhMyGloe is here to help you understand it better!

Long gone are the days where thick foundations are the norm. Lighter BB creams that give you a ‘my skin, but better’ look is what it is all about - enter the Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream from Klairs! This cult-favourite product has been dubbed the ‘Mochi BB’ for the soft, smooth and flawless finish it gives the skin, similar to that of a mochi (Korean Marshmallow), so if you’ve been on the search for the best BB cream out there, then this is the one for you! 

Let’s delve deeper into everything you need to know about about the Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream:

Texture:

The acronym ‘BB’ is short for blemish balm, a type of base makeup which serves to even out the skin tone for a light, natural and ‘no-makeup makeup’ look. This blemish cream has a slightly creamy texture that fills in the pores without creasing, and applies smoothly and easily, just like a second layer of skin. The lightweight formulation will leave you with a healthy clear looking complexion (AKA: a filter without a filter)

Ingredients:

The Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream is supercharged with ingredients that have skin pampering qualities which all work together to better the skin, making it an ideal beginners BB cream. Here is a look at a breakdown of the ingredients:

  • Centella Asiatica Extract: adds soothing properties to the cream that makes it gentle enough for sensitive and acne prone skin.
  • Hyaluronic Acid and Aloe Vera: keeps the skin hydrated and moisturised for a natural and dewy finish that will last all day. 
  • Niacinamide: works to reduce pigmentations, suppress sebum production and improve acne caused by oiliness.

How to Use:

Whether you use your fingers, a beauty blender or a foundation brush, it’s totally up to you! This blemish cream has a buildable texture so depending on how much coverage you want, you can add layers as you go. To make layering easier, evenly dot the BB cream on your face where you feel you need the coverage, and blend it out. Doing it this way means your skin will look flawless and natural!

 An OMG Pro Tip:

We especially love the Klairs BB cream for its versatility! For example,  it can easily be tweaked into a cream blush, contour, highlighter or even eye shadow! Simply mix the cream with a small amount of lipstick to create a cream blush, or brown eyeshadow for a cream contour. It really is the ultimate product for those of us who are either new to the world of makeup, or who prefer a one product fits it all approach to their makeup routine!
