I think Reality Stars and BB Creams in the U.S. have a lot in common. They are both packaged as something they aren’t….I mean, Reality Stars, is that an oxymoron or what? BB’s in the U.S., for the most part, are Tinted Moisturizers having an identity crisis. I think, to be honest, they both have had their 15 minutes of fame. Although, a “BB” is supposed to “replace serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation, and sunblock” (Wikipedia) most here in the U.S. don’t. That’s not to say, I haven’t found a way to make them work for me. Dr. Jart+ Premium BB is one I continually grab. It gives me light coverage, provides moisture and has a SPF of 45/PA +++! The PA ranking is the amount of protection the sunscreen offers from the UVA rays. PA rankings are listed as PA+, PA++ or PA+++. It is fragrance-free for those that are scent sensitive and blends easily. I have found that this is best for the Fair to Ivory Skin Tones. Since it only comes in one color, most Olives will find it a little gray for their skin. Don’t fret though, Olive has a BB Cream that meets all these same specs for her. Stay tuned for her review. Is the Doctor in? It is for me. As I pack up for Spring Training, this little tube is on top.
Moral of the story: Even though most reality people are train wrecks, they do serve a purpose. They make us feel better about ourselves. I have found that BB’s serve a purpose too. This one will keep me an Ivory! Have you found a BB you love?
