Dr. Jart's: The Magic of BB Cream

 While reading my daily dose of Refinery29, I saw that they mentioned Dr. Jart's Water Fuse Beauty Balm ($32), which is a product I am familiar with! They didn't really review it, so here is my take: Dr. Jart's is a BB cream -- that stands for Beauty and Blemish Balm -- and while it's not so big here in the U.S., it's HUGE in Asia. Seriously, Asian women can't get enough of this stuff, and there are tons of different brands. So, what's the appeal? Well, it basically evens your skin tone, giving you a dewy, healthy look. Even though BB cream is tinted, it is not meant to be used as a foundation; it's not shade specific, meaning Dr. Jart's doesn't come in different colors.

If your skin is red or splotchy, or if you have scars or blemishes, this stuff will almost erase them. I used Dr. Jart's a lot during the winter, but now that it's summer, I find that it's too much for my increasingly tan skin and oily face. However, it's worth a try if you're looking for an alternative to foundation.

My final word: I give BB Cream an A.
