Dr. Jart Premium Beauty Balm BB Cream Review & Swatches

Dr. Jart Premium Beauty Balm BB Cream 2

Korea is the birth place to the BB Cream but within the last year or two the trend has branched out to various Asian countries with brands featuring their own version of the BB Cream.

I’ve been using BB Creams for about three or four years now. They are my foundation of choice as they do wonders for dullness and dry skin in my opinion.

Up until now BB Creams have not been available within the US and brands such as Estee Lauder and MAC who all have released a BB Cream in some shape or form in Asia have not extended the same friendlessness to the western market. It’s understandable they haven’t released the product here since many of these BB Creams offer whitening and brightening options something that isn’t necessarily embraced by American women.

A true BB Cream offers an anti-aging formula, pigmentation that conceals and acts as a foundation, brightening or whitening benefits, and a high SPF, and has some sort of healing benefits for scarring. Supposedly the formula was created by dermatologists and prescribed to heal laser skin surgery patients as it contained soothing ingredients and had skin regeneration properties.

In my experience it hasn’t healed any problems areas and I honestly can’t say if it’s preventing or slowing the aging process but I do have my doubts about this. I will say I love the coverage, I love how lightweight it is yet pigmented, and I love how it instantly eases dullness and makes my skin look refreshed, awake, and gorgeous.

The exciting news is of course the fact that Dr. Jart has released two BB Creams to the US market that are available at Sephora. This is the first time that BB Creams have made their way to the western market officially and I have a feeling you’ll see alot more of them as the months go by.

I purchased Dr. Jart BB Beauty Balm which is one of two new BB Creams available at Sephora. I was very eager to compare it to the many Korea BB Creams I’ve tried and particularly to the Dr. Jart BB Creams from Korea that I have.

Let’s take a look!

Dr. Jart at Sephora BB Creams Come to the US Market

Dr Jart BB Cream Sephora

Finally the US is catching the BB Cream bug. I’ve been using BB Creams for about three or four years now. They are my sole foundation option simply because they are one of the few base products that don’t oxidize quickly on my skin. Add to the fact that they are super creamy and moisturizing for my dry skin and I’m a happy girl indeed.

If you’ve never tried a BB Cream or you simply don’t know what one is please visit an old post I did by clicking here to brush up on what a BB Cream is and does.

I’m really excited today to announce that Dr. Jart has brought his BB Creams to Sephora!

Check it!

Dr. Jart Ice Cooler Review

It’s probably a little too late for me to enjoy the full benefits of Dr. Jart Ice Cooler but I thought I’d review anyway for those who have large pores and are looking for a way to tighten them.

Dr. Jart All Out Black Head Review

Last night the Muse got home extra late and decided to do battle with the one or two stubborn blackheads on her nose.  It’s never a good idea to go into full on war with blackheads when you’re tired but she must have been terribly exhausted to attempt it.

As you may know from reading my past posts I’ve been full on at war with these blackheads for a while and my quest has lead me on many adventures to rid myself of them from the downright weird to the incredibly good way of winning this epic battle.

My search recently led me to Dr. Jart All Out Black Head as it gets rave reviews in Korea. Asia understands the drama of blackheads so of course I was ever trusting that Dr. Jart was going to rid me of evil blackheads.
