Does anyone use BB creams or CC creams? I keep wondering if this is some new fad - yet another thing we are being seduced into buying and using. Moisturizer, serum, sunscreen, primer, foundation, etc. If we use some or all of those, do we really need something else?

So far I haven't bought into it. Maybe it takes the place of some of those so then you only need one product, but if you already have the others, it's kind of a waste to buy it. What do you think?
2/c and some 3A. Modified CG.
Protein sensitive
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Conditioners: Curl Junkie Beauticurls Strengthening Conditioner,
Deep condish: Curl Junkie Curl Rehab
Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift
Personally, I'm not hugely into products/makeup in general. I keep it real simple. I recently tried physician's formula organic wear cc because that's the makeup brand I use and there was a coupon. I found it hid the few acne scars I have pretty well and I really like how it's pretty much all in one type product. My only complaint is there aren't very many colors available and the lightest shade they have is still a bit dark for my ghostly pallor lol!

So if you have all these other products you like using already, then I really don't see a need to switch or especially not add this to them. But, if you're looking for something new that might simplify things for you, Id say its worth a try!

^ I bought the PF Organic Wear Tinted Moisturizer a while back and really liked it other than the fact that it smells like really strong mens shaving cream. It took a long time for the scent to ease up. The lightest shade in it actually matched well with my skin (and it had some blurring action which was nice too) but I tried the liquid/mineral TM next and it was too dark. They really don't have a good selection.

And that brings me to my beef with cup sizes...

I have only tried one CC so far, and I do not like it. It's the Clinique CC cream. I actually went to buy their tinted moisturizer which I wore for years, and absolutely loved. I didn't even bother with foundation. Unfortunately it had been replaced with the BB & CC creams. That has happened with numerous brands and ticks me off. The match seemed pretty good in the store, it blended well on the test spot, but when I got home and tried it all over it was a no go. Too light and it does not blend well or color correct anything. I was also told it could be used as a primer but there is no way. I do not doubt that they work well for some people but I personally find TM's much better. They give more coverage, but not too much, imo. They sell like hot cakes so they should be breaking out the bigger guns fairly soon.

When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

As far as other products making it a waste to buy goes... It can be in some cases and is not in others. I think it's probably a good all around product for teens with normal to slightly combo skin. People who are oily may have problems with it being too moisturizing, and may need a primer to make sure it does not slide off. Those with very dry skin may not find it moisturizing enough on it's own and both may end up needing powder to cut down the shine by the time they are done. :-/

I have 2 BB creams that I will use in place of foundation, especially if I'm not wearing a lot of makeup. Boscia BB cream gives more of a glowy/dewy finish and is perfect for when I'm not wearing makeup but need the SPF. Tarte 12 Hour BB gives me more of a polished finish and I use it when I want a sheer coverage makeup, rather than a traditional foundation.

If this BB/CC trend continues, I hope these companies stop at OO creams, because I am NOT putting anything called PP cream on my face

I use precious little on my face, I don't even bother with sunscreen most of the time because I don't trust the ingredients in them, I just try to stay away from direct sun, but not even all the time because I believe a little sunlight is healthy.

My present moisturizer is made for babies and has mostly natural ingredients but this time of year I hardly need any at all because my skin is on the oily side. My arms and legs are more on the dry side so I do use some lotion on them but I try to choose something without a lot of chemicals in them, the last one I got is from Whole Foods. I love rubbing oils on my skin so during winter I do it all the time.

Anyway, I believe good skin comes from inside, so I pay more attention to what I eat and I take supplements, and that seems to have worked for me.
Well and genetics.

Around then I had my 2nd child and I was only 32 but my own neck seemed to have developed some lines at the base, but some Vit. E cream and better nutrition took care of that. The only thing that never responded to anything I did is a line in my forehead that I developed years ago BUT a 2nd line has tried to "move in" but it seems to "come & go",
so I believe one cannot rest on the "laurel" of good genes only.

It's simple bio-chemistry really, you make sure to get enough nutrients to keep making collagen and elastin, give it some protection and exercise and it should repair itself like any other organ of the body can until a time comes when everything inevitably slows down.
