BB cream, which stands for “beauty balm” cream, is an all-in-one facial makeup. Most BB creams act, at minimum, as an anti-aging serum, primer, foundation, moisturizer and sunscreen. That means a single magical little bottle may serve as a catch-all solution for five or more different products! One of the main benefits of BB cream is of course its convenience, but not all are created equal. Our LovelySkin staff has put together a list of our favorites to make choosing the best BB cream for your summer makeup routine a breeze.
