BB Cream is simply a beauty balm product that is fortified with multiple beauty products in one product. It includes a serum, a moisturizer, a primer, a foundation, and a sunscreen. It was made popular by dermatologist Dr. Christine Schrammek in the 60s and gradually took off in Korea and Japan in the 80s before finding it’s way to the United States in 2012. And according to a study conducted the same year, it was said that over 50% of women prefer a BB Cream because of it’s natural looking coverage.
