My pick is Atomy BB Cream. Some people say its like a tinted moisturizer, or primer. Others have called it a “beauty balm”. BB cream is a new craze in most Asian cosmetic and skin care lines that gives the “flawless” complexion look. Applied over moisturizer it is undetected (unlike most foundations), and covers up age spots and acne scars. The finish is natural and satin. The one shade oxidizes to match most fair skin tones (however, I do wish they would produce more shades). When worn on the skin, it works to improve skin tone, provides SPF 30 and can replace foundation! I love that one product can have so many functions. Atomy is a natural skin care line from Korea. The BB cream is like silk in a tube, and without fragrance- great for sensitive skin. This is a product I personally use on a daily basis to protect my skin and give me a clean complexion. I just love it!!
