BB Creams are the latest fad in the beauty world. I, apparently, cannot post a review on the product as I am no beauty expert.
So what is a BB Cream? BB stands for “Blemish Balm” and dermatologists initially used it to help laser surgery patients protect, soothe and regenerate their highly sensitive skin while also providing good coverage for post-laser scars and redness.

You might be listening to Grace Lee and The Angelicopter raving about it every morning on the radio and might be wondering where to get it in Bacolod City.
No other than The Face Shop! Since it is a fad originating in Korea, it makes perfect sense finding one in The Face Shop, since the shop is a Korean Boutique!
They actually have different lines for BB Creams, but very limited tints.
I bought two BB Creams, HD-Perfect…
…and the Marine Stem Cell which I got for my mum.
Aside from these two, they also have other lines which will suit different needs. They even have a BB Cream for men!

The Face Shop is located at the Ground Floor, North Wing, SM City Bacolod.
Update: If you don’t like The Face Shop, Maybelline also has a BB Cream in their Clear Smooth Minerals lines. (complete name Maybelline Clear Smooth Minerals B.B Cream)
I don’t think all Maybelline counters have this product but you can find Maybelline counters at Robinson’s Place Bacolod (Dept Store, 2nd floor), SM City Bacolod (Dept. Store, North Wing & Watson’s South Wing) and Gaisano City Bacolod (Dept. Store, 2nd Floor)
According to this blog, it is around Php 299.00. I saw a couple of boxes in the Maybelline counter at Watson’s (South Wing, SM City Bacolod) and the price is at Php 249.00 for 13 ml. 🙂
