Although I’ve used a BB cream from time to time, I didn’t totally know what it was meant for. According to Garnierusa.com, ” BB cream is short for ‘blemish balm’ cream. It’s a versatile combination of products such as moisturizer, primer, SPF, foundation, skin treatment, and concealer. “
Our Review&Reco segment today features Baishali-
She recommends the Laura Mercier BB cream for her day to day use.
This is what she has to say about it:
“I like looking presentable…or even nice on most days. However with my schedule it often becomes hard to do anything beyond the moisturize my face post a shower. This ritual didn’t help with some slight dark circles under my eyes and some dark pigmentation around my lips. After flirting with a few BB creams I finally landed on the Laura Mercier BB cream. This product is a life saver for people with hectic schedules who have little patience for elaborate make up. Post a shower and light moisturizing I can use the BB cream on my face…a small quantity goes a long way. Post smoothening it out over the face, and a dash of lipstick…I am usually all set for work! Laura mercier BB cream is light, non-greasy and perfect for all skin types. It has a light glow, esp if you apply it over a lightly moisturized face.
While Laura Mercier is not the cheapest BB on the market, you wouldn’t want just any brand on your million dollar skin. So don’t think twice and try out this fabulous make up hack!”
Now don’t be concerned about having to source the product all the way across the seas. Laura Mercier products retail in India as well. While it would cost significantly more than your home-grown cosmetics brands like Lakme, it would still be in the neighbourhood of Clinique et al.
