    “The ‘BB’ in BB Cream stands for blemish balm,” explains Alyssa Kobel, Marketing Director for skincare company Boscia. “In Asia, a blemish is any skin imperfection -- not just pimples. It could be sunspots, blackheads, uneven skin tone.”

    Although the creams are a hit in Asia, "BB cream was originally developed in Germany for post procedure coverage (i.e. face lift) to treat and conceal," explains Sephora Director of Merchandising for Skincare, Carolyn Bojanowski.
