Hair Snips #18: What Is BB Cream?


So as I just finished reading the newest issue of Cosmo Magazine, I realized that there were at least 3 different ads for 3 different types of BB Creams.  I’ve seen these new products advertised before, but never really stopped to realize that I didn’t know what they are. But after a little bit of research, I want to share what I discovered with you guys.

Do you know what BB Cream is? Should you be using it? Find out all the juicy details about this new facial product...

What is BB Cream?

  • First off, BB cream stands for “blemish balm,” “blemish base,” or “beauty balm”.
  • The concept of BB cream originates from Asia.  It is designed to combine and replace serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation and sunscreen, as an all-in-one product.
  • BB creams are also formulated to match your skin tone and to treat and conceal acne, inflammation and wrinkles.

They should probably call this stuff “miracle cream” instead.  It’s no wonder why it has become more and more popular in the United States recently.

On a similar note, there are other types of “alphabet creams” like CC creams and DD creams. CC creams are “color-correcting creams” which tend to be lighter than BB creams, but still similar. A BB/CC hybrid cream called the “DD cream” or “Dynamic Do-All cream” is new to the market, so look out for that too!

Most people prefer the Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream, according to a blind test study.

Hair Snips #17: What Is A Soap Cap?


Today I am going to talk to you guys about a soap cap ( or also known as shampoo caps ). There are a few different types of soap caps that I can think of and will explain to you what they are and how to use them…

Have you ever heard of the term "soap cap" and wondered what it meant? Learn the different types of soap caps and how to use them...

1. The “Traditional” Soap Cap with Color

This type of soap cap can be used to freshen up color. Hair color is mixed with equal parts of shampoo and then added to the hair. After processing from 5-10 minutes, rinse, shampoo and style as usual.

You can use this method when you just need to touch up your roots, and just want to refresh the rest of your hair.  Additionally, this can be used to refresh color in between applications. The purpose of the added shampoo is to dilute the color so it will not darken your previously colored hair. It also ensures even application.
