What is BB Cream? Seems as if a lot of people are still confused to what a BB Cream actually is. BB cream has been around for much longer than you may think. Leave it to cosmetic companies to create a beautiful marketing campaign that rivals the "mineral makeup" trend of years past. But we gals here at Glossible truly love BB creams.
Girl, I know. It's hard to keep up sometimes.

BB cream was formulated in 1960's Germany by dermatologist Dr. Christine Schrammek. Dr. Schrammek developed this cream to protect her patients' skin after surgery.
BB cream was introduced to South Korea and Japan in the 1980's because of it's ability to create a flawless, radiant, skin like complexion. In Asian culture, porcelain skin is all the rage and BB cream gave the Asian actresses the beautiful skin they were looking for. Korean and Asian formulas only came in a few shades as BB cream was designed to oxidize to match your unique skin tone.
