The growing popularity of Korean BB creams marks a fundamental change in the way we’re thinking about our beauty routines: a skin-first philosophy is increasingly becoming the norm. When it comes to makeup that provides natural coverage and greater skin benefits, the best Korean BB creams with high SPF fit the bill like nothing else.
Although BB cream was originally created in Germany, Korea is known for perfecting it. I’ve yet to find a BB cream that wasn’t Korean-made with the same level of coverage, that elusive natural finish, high SPF, and the array of antioxidants and hydrating ingredients that many Korean BBs contain.
The high SPF present in Korean BB creams is key to maintaining healthy skin. Unprotected exposure to the sun is extremely damaging to our skin in the long run, and whether you can see that damage happening or not, it’s there. Sun protection is so important that the American Academy of Dermatology recommends applying a sunscreen with at least SPF 30 every single day that you’re going to be outside.
For your sunscreen to provide full protection, you should be applying at least a nickle-sized amount to your face. Since many people don’t apply this much makeup, it’s not recommended that you rely solely on it to protect your skin from the sun. That being said, Korean BB creams are intended to provide an extra layer of sun protection — because, really, the more the better! And cushions are especially great for this purpose, because they’re easy to throw in your bag and reapply throughout the day.
These 8 amazing Korean BB creams and cushions all provide SPF of 30 or above and don’t have that white cast typical of many sunscreens.
Skin79’s BB creams are a major hit with Korean beauty lovers, and even beauty guru, Jen Chae, of From Head To Toe, says that the Skin79 Pink Label BB Cream is one of her “favorites” and has “Better coverage than other bb creams and improves skin texture.” According to Chae, this full coverage BB cream is a perfect match for MAC NC25-NC30 but can blend to match similar shades as well.
This BB cream works best for light to medium skin tones.
