the newest trend on the beauty scene, bb cream is great if you really prefer minimal maintenance when it comes to your daily makeup routine. the truth is i don't have perfectly flawless skin - that, and i'm also an ingredient snob, meaning i'm always on the hunt for quick, easy fixes for my face with the best stuff in them.
after purusing trade show aisles, i came upon alex, a brand based out of queens (nyc) that carries organic bb cream! it's a great one-stop shop product that works like a foundation/cover up, moisturizes while treating problem skin and blends really nicely with my pale complexion.
alex organics pure bb cream is made with 100% natural ingredients - score! although it's a bit on the spendier side of my beauty budget, i am fortunate to have gotten a good deal on it when i was at the beauty show. now after using it for just a few times,i can already see the difference in my skin, plus it lightens my makeup load (since I like to schlep lots of stuff in my bag on a daily basis) and i get more bang for my buck (it's my new skin cure-all).
insider tip: when applying, instead of rubbing into the skin like a moisturizer, pat it on for the best coverage to even out your skin tone while the bb cream works its magic on healing the skin.
alex oraganics pure bb cream is $90 for 1oz tube.
