Cash or Credit: Magical BB Creams on Every Budget

There's been quite a bit of hype surrounding BB creams of late, and you know what? It's all true! Just to get you up to speed, BB stands for blemish balm — and was founded by German dermatologist Dr. Christine Schrammek over 50 years ago. Its purpose was as a post-operative (and laser) cream, something that was not only restorative with anti-inflammatory agents, but gave some light coverage as well. These days, it is more commonly used as an option to a tinted moisturiser. Hugely popular in South Korea in the '80s, you'll often hear Korean women refer to as their "secret cream" — namely actresses. Oh how we love a beauty secret! Since then, lots of companies have released their own versions of the magic cream, so here's a handful of options on every budget.
