The BB cream revolution
It’s the It product that went from “what the?” to “must have” in about five seconds flat.
Silky smooth Blemish or Beauty Balms (depends on who you ask) are an awesome combination of primer, tinted moisturizer blemish healer and sunscreen. Translation? Your entire skincare regimen, in one tiny tube.
Estée Lauder’s Day Wear Antioxidant Beauty Benefit Crème SPF 35 ($41) was among the first to hit Canadian beauty counters (and has an addictive cucumber scent). Plus, budget-friendly options are on the way: Garnier’s version comes out later this month and Marcelle’s is expected on shelves in early February.
