BB Creams, which are also known as "blemish balm," "blemish base," or "beauty balm," are a combination of skincare and makeup products that offer natural coverage and additional skincare benefits. They can be used as a moisturiser, primer, and everyday foundation and were first created by dermatologists for patients to use after laser treatments to cover blemishes, redness, and skin discolourations without damaging the skin during recovery. They have become more and more popular over recent years.
MISMO's Mineral BB Cream is made with natural extracts such as pomegranate seed, sea buckthorn berry, kiwi seed, and cucumber and essential oils like blood orange, grapefruit, lime & lemon are also derived from natural sources and are commonly found in traditional makeup. BB Creams are generally considered to be more beneficial for the skin when compared to foundations. However, MISMO's products are made entirely of natural ingredients that are good for the skin. The choice between using a BB Cream or foundation depends on personal makeup preferences.
Coverage: BB Creams typically provide coverage that is similar to a product that is between a tinted moisturiser and foundation. MISMO Mineral BB Cream offers sheer to light coverage that helps even out skin tone and minimise imperfections with a natural look. On the other hand, Liquid, Loose or Pressed Mineral Foundations offer buildable medium-to-full coverage that creates a more "made-up" appearance.
Finish: BB Creams are known for providing a healthy glow with a dewy finish, MISMO Mineral BB Cream is designed to give a natural, luminous finish that enhances the complexion without feeling heavy on the skin. On the other hand, Mineral Foundations provide a semi-matte finish that helps control oil and shine.
Both MISMO Mineral BB Cream and our Mineral Foundations have sun protection properties which makes them a great addition if you want added sun protection.
In summary, both Mineral BB Creams and Mineral Foundations have their own unique benefits and results. It is recommended to alternate between the two depending on the desired makeup look. MISMO Mineral BB Cream can also be used as a natural primer for added skincare benefits before applying foundation.

"Mineral BB cream feels great on your skin, very light and moisturising. It covers so easily with brush, I have tried with my fingers but much prefer the brush. I love Mismo products but Mineral BB cream is certainly a great addition."
