Thanks for stopping by KoreanBBCreamGuide.com! My name is Clara and this is my blog.
I’m an American-born Korean who now lives in Seoul and works for a fashion magazine. I don’t consider myself an expert in cosmetics but I’ve always had a fascination with makeup and trying out different products. Gradually, I developed a huge interest in BB creams after I came to Korea.
Working for a fashion magazine, I had the opportunity to do plenty of research, writing, and trying out cosmetics. It’s actually not as great as it sounds, because we often have to meet tight deadlines, and Koreans work REALLY long hours. During a dinner with friends we talked about my work and the topic of BB creams came up. We noticed that because there were so many different BB creams, it was difficult to choose just one!
If it wasn’t for my job I would probably be just as confused. While there are plenty of Korean websites that review Korean brands, there aren’t that many in English. Plus from my experience, I find that Korean BB creams are much better than their Western counterpart (my theory is that cosmetics and beauty are of high importance in Korea). Most are actually available for purchase in the US.
So having said all that, the goal of KoreanBBCreamGuide.com is to provide a place where we can help each other choose a Korean BB cream. As I said before, I don’t view myself as an expert, so content will typically just be based on my experience. Since the goal is to help each other find the right BB cream, I encourage you to give your input! I’ll try to give you as much information as you need so you can make the best purchasing decision.
I intend to blog regularly, so please check back for new content!
I hope you’ll find the information on this website useful and that you’ll find a suitable Korean BB cream for you!
