How To Know if a BB Cream is Right For You


Before choosing a new skin care product, you need to know what your skin care issues are, right? Otherwise, you end up buying something that “doesn’t work”, you waste money and you tell everyone you know that the product stinks.

Many times, it actually does work and is well worth the money, it just wasn’t right for you. That’s why you need to put in a little research time. If you were buying a car, you wouldn’t purchase it simply because it was your favorite shade of red if it didn’t have the beautiful leather seats and upgraded stereo system you simply must have (ok, maybe the extra cargo space and wipe-able surfaces are more important but we can dream, right?). The same principles apply with beauty products. If the product is not qualified to take care of your skin concerns, it’s not the right one for you.

So, let’s talk about the latest beauty rage called BB Creams. Practically every cosmetic brand has one now. How do you know if it’s the right type of skin care/ beauty product for you?

Ask yourself:

  • Do you have dark spots that need to fade PRONTO?
  • Do you need SPF (ummm, yes….)
  • Do you want to fight the signs of aging?
  • Do you want to moisturize?
  • Do you want a tint of color so you can skip the foundation?
  • Do you love multi-tasking products?

I bet you said yes to at least half of these questions.  If so, a BB Cream could be the exact product you need!

Last week I told you about the Youth Code BB Cream Illuminator put out by L’Oreal Paris.  I’ve been testing the sample provided for me and I have to say, this product is pretty awesome!  I am using the shade of “light” and the color is exactly right for me!  The formula gives me a bit of coverage, a bit of glow and a lot of anti-aging, spot-fighting power!  It’s so perfect for my typical day of homeschooling and running errands.


What makes Youth Code BB Cream Illuminator different from other BB Creams?

While most BB Creams are tinted, offer moisture and SPF, they are not all created equal.  If you have dark spots from sun damage, pregnancy mask or post-acne marks, the Youth Code BB is a great product for your skin concerns.  The formula contains vitamin Cg (a form of slow-release Vitamin C) and niacinamide to help make skin tone more even over time.

This is my concern and I’m looking forward to spots fading over time. L’Oreal Paris indicates results make take up to 4 weeks. For now, I’m happy with the amount of coverage I have when using the product and knowing that it’s actively working on evening my skin tone keeps me using it! Why should I just cover my dark spots when I can actual use a product that fights the current spots and helps prevent future spots?

If you are ready for a budget-friendly, multi-tasking product that gives you luminous skin while fading the existing damage, you are ready for Youth Code BB Cream Illuminator!

Youth Code BB Cream Illuminator instantly evens, illuminates, perfects, moisturizes, and protects skin. In one week, tone and texture are improved and skin is healthier looking.
