Skinfood's Good Afternoon Peach Green Tea BB Cream

So, am I the last woman on earth to learn what a "BB cream" is? I started seeing ads for them in magazines, but nothing told me what the "BB" stood for. "BB" as in "BB gun" didn't seem quite right, so Wikipedia had to help me out. In short, it stands for "Blemish Balm" and is sort of a jack-of-all-trades primer, moisturizer, foundation and sunblock. I wanted to try one, and believe it or not the best price for the one I wanted was on eBay and arrived quickly from Korea! Skinfood makes this brand of tea-containing BB creams, and I ordered the Peach Green Tea BB cream. (You can read about this one and the other varieties on Skinfood's website here.)

I absolutely loved the packaging and the design on the tube!

The cream itself, I am pleased to report, far surpassed my expectations. First, it had a light floral scent I absolutely adore. (That would be a problem for some who dislike fragrance, but I love it.) It went on smooth as silk, and I happened to get the *perfect* shade of BB cream for my skintone. I had planned to use this as a primer/sunblock only, but it looks so good, I'm perfectly happy using it in place of foundation. So have any of you tried BB creams? If so, what do you think of them?


  1. I haven't tried a BB cream yet but this does look interesting!

  2. Angela, you are not the last one to hear about it. I have never heard or seen anything about it. I always learn new things from you. Thank you.

  3. Never heard of it either.
    Sounds fascinating!

  4. Never fear! You're not the last person on earth to know what BB Cream is, because I didn't know what it was - but thanks to you, I do now! I'll have to be on the look-out for it.

  5. I too have been reading about BB creams. Never tried them. Glad you like the one you ordered.


Thanks so much for taking time to leave a comment! It makes my day to hear from readers!
