5 Best BB Creams in India

By : Sujata Limbu


BB cream is the latest craze among Asian women. We list down some of the pocket friendly and effective BB creams available in India.



BB is an abbreviation for blemish balm or blemish base. Initially a concept immensely popular in the South Korea, it soon found its way in the international waters of Europe and the USA, and now it has sunk its way into our national scene. Let’s take a look at the different brands offering their version of the BB creams. But first let us see what exactly a bb cream does to our skin!


What does a BB Cream do?


The benefits of the BB cream are that it covers up the blemishes and redness on the skin, giving an even tone of the skin, an almost affect of nude makeup. Furthermore it smoothes the skin and helps in the regeneration process, resulting in younger-looking and refined skin. It is also believed to contain anti-ageing properties. All bb creams offer SPF Factors, so there is a lesser need for additional sun block. Also when combined with exotic ingredients, this cream works miraculously to cure skin issues.
