B & B Cream Takes Care of it All!

Ciao bella,

I have noticed for a long time now, ads and talk about B and B Cream.Well what is it anyway? B and B, all I could think of was Bread and Butter! And so many other combos!

It's Beauty Balm or in some cases Blemish Balm. So I decided to purchase some. I liked what it was offering as a cover up cream you can use under your makeup. Essentially a primer it also can be worn alone. Some B&B's have a luminescent glow also with different SPF's. I would consider them all a necessary part of our makeup regime for all of us complexion conscious gals! Quick and easy to look great all day!

A primer goes under your foundation or can be used alone. When applied it looks like the cheesecloth effect when a photographer applies the cloth over the lens! It really does work and makes your skin velvety and dewy looking! Just a few colors to choose from for every brand. So in essence a B & B Cream carries many different advantages instead of just one. It can be a primer, a coverup with a bit of color, an iridescent- pearly look, an SPF with different ranges of protection and enough color to wear it alone. Check your brand name's labels and which B & B Cream is best for you! They can be found in your local drugstore to high end department stores! Pricing from $15 to $50! So put some glow on and be beautiful with a B & B Cream!

Buona giornata and God bless the United States of America!
