Blemish Balm Cream is what BB Cream stands for.

What are some tips for choosing the best brand?

Every person has a different need so what may be best for me may not necessarily suit you. So here are 5 simple guidelines that may help you in choosing the best or most suitable brand for you.

  1. Make sure that you do your homework and you do it very well. There are no shortcuts in choosing the best product. It can be a painful trial and error process, but the reward is remarkable in the end. You have to devote an ample time in researching the net for the brands that are available in the market.
  2. Choose your top 5 products or brands. It will be much easier to decide if you narrow down your list to the top 5. Make sure that all 5 best finds address your specific requirement. These have to cater to your specific demands and priorities. It will be useless to put in the list what others recommend as the best if this will not suit your own specific requirement. So make yourself the ultimate deciding factor and don’t just be swayed by what others will say. Remember that each one has different needs and preferences.
  3. Check out the consistency. You want to make sure that the consistency of the BB cream you are going to choose is the right one – not too thick nor not too thin. It has to be just right and provide you with full coverage, yet at the same time not feeling too heavy on your skin.
  4. Correct shade is the key to your perfect look. This tip not only applies to BB creams but to all kinds of make-up. You need to check out and test it on your skin and preferably on your jawline or on your neck before you buy the product. It will also be good to let it sit for a while on your skin so it can be properly absorbed and then check it out in different light sources so you will see how it blends to your skin tone.
  5. Once you found the best brand that suits all your needs, go ahead and invest in it. Don’t let the money be your deciding factor because you will end up regretting your decision and wasting more money. It is a skin care product and a make-up in one, so just like choosing for these two types of products, you also want to make sure that you are only choosing the best to put on your face.
