Major Contributors (other than myself) to Post#1 to #5: deppstar, kandi, reallyAmused IntroductionBlemish Balm aka BB cream has been the hottest craze in Asia (Korea specifically) for quite some time now. But what exactly is it? To put it simply - BB cream is a makeup touted with skincare properties. That being said, double cleansing is required, if not, you will experience clogged pores and pimples like anyone else."It's a 4 in 1 multifunctional cream - soothes, moisturizes, protects and covers blemishes."The most popular brand of BB Cream in Korea is Hanskin. You may see some products spelling “blemish” incorrectly and think that Korean companies can’t spell. Well…. You're wrong! :D The word "blemish" has been copyrighted by a Korean company.

BB Cream is somewhat a makeup product with skincare properties. As mentioned, its was initially introduced to patients who went for cosmetic surgery but still wanted to look good post surgery while in recovery. So it has more soothing/healing properties (varies from brand to brand) compared to our normal foundation. Its still best applied with moisturizer and sunblock. Different brands of BB cream has different textures , coverage and blendability.To read more general info about BB creams, please refer to the links below:Makeup For Life http://www.makeupforlife.net/2007/12/bb-cream.htmlCozyCots Forum http://forums.cozycot.com/showthread.php?t=26032INDEXFAQ post #2Product Reviews post #3 - as of 17 Nov '09, only a selected informative reviews and those that follow the format will be referencedComparisons post #4 - different products and brands comparedWhere to Purchase? see post #4
