Good morning, gorgeous gals and guys!

Have you tried the new rage in makeup, the BB cream?  It stands for " beauty balm" and is a foundation/ tinted moisturizer/primer all in one.  It has moisturizer, silky feeling primer and good coverage!  If you haven't tried one, don't stress.......they've only been on the market about two years and they've already been eclipsed by the NEWEST rage, the CC cream!

Lindsay Loves Peter Thomas Roth CC Cream
CC creams take BB creams and add skin care.  Most have SPF 30 and all are dark spot correctors and fine line diminishers.  But what, asks my clever reader, does this have to do with style?  Well, simply put, these creams allow you to simplify your life, which is always in style!  Gone are the days of serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation and powder!  But do they work?

I haven't asked my aesthetician yet.  I have a feeling she'll say that one product can't do it all.  But I tried several CC creams and found that they go on like moisturizers but dry to a matte finish like many foundations.  And how easy are they????  No more layers of product.  No more blending til my hand turns blue.  And when I took the cream off that night, my skin felt smooth and soft, like I had done it a big favor.  So, does that mean they work?

Lindsay's Wardrobe of Serums
The jury is still out.  Certainly they feel good but we don't know about the long haul.  Should we all hop on the bandwagon?  Is this a trend that'll be out in short order?  I'm not sure yet.  I gotta tell you, though, I think they're worth a try.  I'm not going to toss my wardrobe of serums, moisturizers, primers and foundations, but I'm adding Peter Thomas Roth's CC cream and I'll see how my skin looks and feels in a few weeks.  When you see me out and about, let me know how my skin looks!  And remember, "trend" is today, "style" is forever!!!
