What are BB Creams?
BB stands for BLEMISH BALM, primarily sold in east and southeast Asia, Beauty Balms or BB have now taken precedence in skincare in the western market.
“BB cream is promoted as an all-in-one facial cosmetic product to replace serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation, and sunblock. It can be worn alone as a tinted moisturizer, over serum and moisturizer as a regular foundation, and under powder, depending on the desired amount of coverage”. (Source: Wikipedia)
Is this cream for the Woman of Color?
Iman thinks so! The supermodel and Beauty-preneur will be introducing a collection of six BB creams to her Iman Cosmetics Line. They are specifically formulated to seamlessly match her own complexion as well as 35 other skin tones for the woman of color. Inspired by the lack of variety in shades, Iman set out to create BB creams for the black woman, “I said if I can’t find one to match me then there’s a problem because I’m really in the middle. But I couldn’t [find one],”. In the future, she hopes to launch BB eye products, concealer, and bronzers.
If you’re interested in purchasing her line of BB creams when they launch this december, be sure to contact your local Iman retailer/distributor in Lagos or Abuja, or email us for more inquiry (myHairmyBeauty@yahoo.com)
