BB cream is suddenly everywhere — from giant signs in Sephora windows to the best real estate in the drugstores to cosmetic bags around the country. And even us beauty editors (who have to be hypercritical — it’s our job) are excited about this bourgeoning makeup-meets-skin care category. BB stands for “Beauty Balm” or “Blemish Balm” depending on the formula, and they’re basically tinted moisturizers with skin care ingredients and SPF built in. Although everyone from salespeople to journalists is touting them as all-in-one miracle creams, we wouldn’t go that far.
