Short for Blemish Balm or Beauty Balm, BB creams tripped the light fantastic in 2012 and became a mainstay of every makeup bag with claims to conceal, protect from the sun, hydrate, moisturize, minimize lines, etc., etc. During 2012, I felt rather dandy going out for the day with one BB cream, normally Garnier Miracle Cream Protector, mascara, and a lip-gloss rather than my usual cacophony of bottles and potions leaking all over the bottom of my Anya H
One of the newest companies to join the beauty box band wagon is Red Carpet Box, and they are trying to move above and beyond the simple box full of itsy bitsy samples and foil packets of beauty brands. In each Red Carpet Box you will find actual full sized products from labels you love and trust, generally valued at around $150. Red Carpet Box was founded in 2012 and has steered away from a subscription-based formula.
