BB Cream (an abbreviation for “Blemish Balm Cream”) is among Asia’s hottest beauty products right now. This multifunctional skincare cream is said to have originated in Germany as an ointment dermatologists would prescribe to patients who have undergone laser skin surgery for its soothing, healing and skin-regenerating properties. Popular Korean celebrities were the first to start using the cream for beauty purposes and because KDramas (a.k.a. Korean drama series) are pretty big at the moment (here in Asia at least), a craze was born. Korean doctors, and companies have since formulated new and innovative functions and ingredients to this cream making this product a ‘total’ skincare cream from Asia. It is said that 85% of Asian women own a bb cream. The beauty trend has now spread from Korea to Japan to South East Asia and, is quickly making its way to Europe and North America.

Here is another brand that has international presence and is a main player in the bb cream market.
Dr. Jart has the second highest grade of ingredients next to BRTC. They are known for their quality but extremely pricy -some bb creams costing $60. Their design and advertising has a cool look to it often mixed with black and silver. Unfortunatley there is no official site for Dr. Jart however many bb cream stores online sell this brand.The most popular bb cream from Dr. Jart is Silver Label BB Cream. This is a base bb cream with whitening and SPF35/PA++. Many girls often stated that Dr. Jart has a good medium base coverage so if your looking for something lighter or heavier than Dr. Jart is not for you. This bb cream has decent oil control but the tone is not great for darker skintones. Overall a great bb cream and a strong brand but their prices are highly over priced.
