I recently mentioned how I’ve been using Burt’s Bees BB Cream instead of regular foundation lately, and I’ve partnered with the company to share a few other ways this skincare/makeup hybrid can be used.
I refer to BB Cream or beauty balm as a hybrid, because it serves dual function as a makeup and skincare product! It hydrates, nourishes, smooths and protects, all while providing lightweight coverage, making skin look brighter and softer to the touch.
Application (shown below): after squeezing a dime size amount onto your hand, use a foundation brush to apply to entire face in a circular motion.
These are my 3 fave ways to use BB Cream, depending on my makeup/skincare needs on any given day:
SKIN CORRECTOR | Burt’s Bees BB Cream has 9 clinically shown benefits! It moisturizes, visibly firms and evens skin tone, so on days I don’t wear any makeup, I use my BB Cream as a skin corrector, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, enhancing the overall health and appearance of my skin.
TINTED MOISTURIZER | This 98.9% BB Cream conceals and illuminates, so on days I want lightweight coverage, I use it like I would a tinted moisturizer, after cleansing and toning. It has just the right amount of coverage, along with moisturizer and SPF, so I can skip applying separate hydration and sunscreen!
PRIMER | Using BB Cream as a primer underneath a traditional foundation is a great way to get extra coverage. For special events or days I need more coverage, I apply BB Cream after cleansing and toning, followed by regular foundation.
