Men's BB Cream is not exactly a new thing in the male grooming world. 2012 saw the release of Lab Series’ BB Cream For Men, as well as MMUK MAN releasing their own, equally as impressive version, towards the latter stages of that year. In today's men's skincare blog, we'll be running the rule over the best men's BB Creams out there at the moment, in a bid to shine the light on some of these skin care 'Swiss army knives' and to see what ones could finally correct your complexions.


BB Creams originated within the Korean beauty market, before being utilized by more men during the late naughtiest. BB creams were originally derived as a hybrid of powerful skin recovering components used by German dermatologists and common cosmetic coverage ingredients, to create these super charged formulas that the entire beauty industry quickly took notice of.


As we approach the climax of 2015, there are now over fifteen male bb creams on the market, all geared for a variety of different men's grooming needs. The main reason why more and more gentlemen are adopting the use of Blemish Balm (BB) creams are to tackle a wide range of skin conditions, with their powerful healing properties, as well as benefit from immediate cover up and camouflage properties present across all of them.


As gentlemen are fairly simple minded when it comes to choosing their cosmetic products, it would be easy to get lost in the mirage of the growingly busy segment of BB creams within the male beauty industry. In a bid to sort the heroes from the zero's, let us run over the top five out there and point you in the right direction of what one may just prove to be your best ever grooming game changer.

4. DR Jaart Black Label BB Cream

It's super slick and very effective and that's the reason why Lab Series will continue to make it onto our hot list.
