5 BEST & AFFORDABLE BB CREAMS AVAILABLE IN INDIA

Hello, everyone! Today’s post is about 5 best & affordable BB creams available in India. There are numerous BB creams available in India, but I have selected top 5 brands according to the availability, quality, texture, coverage, and price.

WHAT ARE BB CREAMS?

Before heading onto the actual list I want to explain the concept of BB creams. So let’s get into the topic.

BB creams are short for beauty balms or blemish balms or Blemish Base.BB cream was originally formulated in the 1960s in Germany by dermatologist Dr. Christine Schrammek to protect her patients’ skin after facial peels and surgery. It will give you a good base for makeup like a primer, even out complexion like a tinted moisturizer, cover minor imperfections and redness like a concealer, hydrate your skin like your day cream, brighten and perk-up a dull complexion and will even protect with SPF.Some BB creams also have anti-wrinkle, anti-inflammatory and soothing effects. Several contain hyaluronic acid and Vitamin C.You can wear it alone without foundation and you should get a light, natural finish coverage to give you a healthy glow and cover uneven skin tone.

The all-in-one formulation became a sensation in South Korea and then spread throughout Asia.BB Creams have been a big business in Southeast and East Asia since 1985.BB creams make up 13 percent of the cosmetics market in South Korea. Some Korean brands also offer BB creams for men.Notable Korean brands include Etude House, Missha, Nature Republic, Skin Food, Innisfree, and The Face Shop.Western cosmetics companies began to launch BB creams in the Western market in 2012, though some of these creams have been criticized for lacking the skin-caring functions that BB creams normally have, and for being no more than a tinted moisturizer.Early arrivals included Boscia, Clinique, Dior, Estée Lauder, Garnier, Marcelle, Maybelline, Revlon, and Smashbox.Today, almost every major beauty company has a BB cream, from drugstore brands to high-end department-store lines.

TOP 5 BEST AND AFFORDABLE BB CREAMS:

All the 5 BB creams come in a tube like packaging and have a mild but sweet fragrance except the Inveda one. Inveda BB cream actually does not have any certain fragrance. These creams give sheer to medium coverage.So I have not included the swatches.All the 5 BB creams claim to give almost the same benefits that are UV protection, even skin tone, concealing, hydration, brightening and glowing complexion, etc. These Creams are easily available online and in stores as well. People with sensitive skin can also use these. But make sure to do a patch test before applying it on the face.
