BB Cushion: The New BB

laneige-bb-cushionBeauty balms are a beauty staple these days and while so many versions have developed over the past few years (CC creams, DD creams...), the perfect hybrid of makeup and skincare has definitely been perfected.  I love using BB creams simply because they streamline my morning regimen.  Here's the scoop on the latest and greatest - BB cushion.

"The average woman in Asia goes through seven different steps taking care of her skin," says Jessica Wu, MD, a Santa Monica, Calif., dermatologist.  That may sound crazy to you, but it's certainly not out-of-this-world to me.  Personally, after I wash, I like to use a toner, lightening serum, eye cream, day cream with SPF, primer and tinted moisturizer.  That's six steps in skincare alone.

Now, my morning beauty routine is cut down. Thanks to a new innovation in BB, the first of it's kind LANEIGE BB Cushion, $34, is available at Target stores and  I like that it's lightweight and does more than just moisturize, protect (with SPF 50) and tint. It's a 5-in-1 that brightens, protects and hydrates skin, while preventing shine and perfecting long-lasting coverage.  The applicator puff it comes with delivers just the right amount of product onto my skin for a very natural look.

We could all use a simple skincare regimen that leaves our skin looking fresh and beautiful. Could you use something like the Laneige BB Cushion, too?  I'm giving one of these away!  Comment on my Facebook telling me the steps in your morning routine for a chance to win.  (Winner must be located in the USA and will be selected at random).
