These days it seems like Beauty Balms (aka "BB creams") are all the rage, with most major make-up companies releasing their own version of them. For those of you unfamiliar with BB creams, they originated in Asia and have only recently made their way to North America. They are multi-tasking creams that serve as a moisturizer, SPF protection, and antioxidants (usually) so they provide light to medium coverage and improve your skins overall condition over time.
I've been anxious to try these creams out to see if they live up to their claims. I did some research online and read a lot of reviews, before finally settling on Clinique's Age Defense BB cream in shade #3 (for reference my skin is NC30-40, depending on how tan I am).
