look good, not broke.

Many skincare products only promise one thing - hydration, blemish control, color control, or sun protection. If you're lucky, you get 2/4 - but it's expensive. The "new" arrival of BB Cream on American shores our latest beauty obsession because it covers everything on your face - literally and figuratively. Created in Germany as an aid for laser surgery patients, the formula then spread to Asia, where Korean actresses swore by it. Finally, it hits drugstore shelves here this month. BB Creams for $75 or more are common, but we got our hands on Garnier's Blemish Balm Cream, which has a tint (you can go light/medium or medium/dark), a moisturizer, and a sunscreen. You can pick up a tube of this stuff at the drugstore for $12, and test the global phenomenon before investing in a big jar for the longterm.
