BB creams (and CC creams for that matter) have been all the rage for a while now. And being that Mommy Makeup is the Best Beauty for Busy Women we have received several inquiries asking why we do not have our own BB cream. The answer is quite simple...
I find most BB and CCs to be “jack of all trades and a masters of none”... There I said it. I addressed the pink elephant in the room. I really don't see why there is all this buzz about BB (and CC) creams. IMHO, here's why I feel this way... Generally BB creams claim to be a hybrid of moisturizer, foundation, concealer and sunscreen. At first glance that sounds pretty good! It sounds like a great multi-tasking product.
In my own experience (on myself and on my clients) I have found that unless you set a BB cream with some kind of powder it does not last. Soooooo with all that said, to me, it seems that a BB cream becomes another added product that just eats up your time (applying it) and money but doesn't have any real pay off!
So I say, don't waste your hard earned money on BB creams. How do you feel about them?
Do you vote to BB or not to BB? That is the question! I would love to hear your opinions :-) Please comment below...
Years ago, in what I sweetly refer to as BC (Before Children) I worked for a well known beauty brand at Bergdorf Goodman. Just down the street, on East 57th St, there was and still is J. Sisters, known for being the pioneers of the Brazilian Bikini Waxing in the United States.
And in those BC years, every 4-5 weeks I would schedule my appointment and 20-30 minutes later, after warm wax and fabric strip after strip, my bikini line was completely bare and silky smooth (sorry if this is TMI ;-).
This summer I made it my mission to find a more convenient and less expensive substitute... And I believe I did!
Wikipedia states"In the animal rights movement, cruelty-free is a label for products or activities that do not harm or kill animals anywhere in the world."
And so you would think that in this day and age that most cosmetic brands are cruelty-free… Well, think again... Many brands are cruelty-free in the USA but not around the world!!
There’s a saying... "People who have nothing to hide, hide nothing".
Think about it... More than anything else, this saying should apply to your beauty products!
When I shop online it frustrates me when a website or brand does not share the product’s ingredient listing! I find this A LOT with the big beauty brands and all I can think is "What are you hiding?
