Are you supposed to moisturize before using a BB Cream?

Or does the BB Cream take the place of moisturizer and foundation?

Thanks!

It's my understanding that BB creams have the moisturizer and all sorts of extra good things for your skin in them. Here is a bit of an article I found on boston.com

..."for women who apply a moisturizer, a primer, a foundation, a setting powder, and an SPF sunscreen every morning, BB creams seem like a small miracle. These are one-step products that can protect, conceal, and correct skin texture and tone."

Never mind what you're "supposed to" do. Do what gives the best results on your skin. As a previous reply said, you may need a separate SPF product. Also, your skin may need more moisture than your BB provides. As for replacing foundation, that depends on the coverage, finish, etc. you are looking for.

I don't use a product labeled "BB." At least, not right now. I'm a product junkie, so I'm sure I'll try a BB sooner or later. Wink

Thanks, all!

I'll try my few BB Cream samples from Beauty Tube & Birchbox without moisturizer first and see how they do.

I use a thick consistency BB Cream, Missha Perfect Cover with spf 49. I add a drop of Clinique moisturizer to it, and mix them together and apply to my face. Everyone has a different routine, but this is what works for me with this particular product.

it depends on the BB, if you have dry skin, etc.

I take pleasure in my 'transformations'. I look quiet and consistent, but few know how many women there are in me.
