Why use a BB cream for men ?

BB cream for men has many benefits, it's not just about hiding skin imperfections :

The BB cream for men for a healthy glow


The BB cream for men will therefore be mainly used to have a healthy glow, because it will have several functions:

  • it will hydrate,

  • it will make the complexion luminous,

  • it will hide the redness,

  • it will make the skin texture smoother and the pores less visible.


This is the main advantage of BB cream for men : in addition to masking skin imperfections, it will also moisturize it. What other make-up products for men do not do, which will mask skin imperfections, but often dry it out.

The BB cream for men will differ from the CC cream for men by being more covering.

The BB cream for men for its discretion


It's a fact, men are still a little reluctant to use make-up to look good, even though more and more of them are taking their darling's foundation or even using their covering stick. But what makes men dare not wear make-up is that they are afraid that it will show. And yes, putting on make-up is not yet considered something very masculine, so that's not what will take away a certain virility.


The BB cream for men will therefore be perfect for men who are afraid of this, because it will cover the skin but while keeping a certain discretion. Unless of course if you put a lot, a thick layer on the face.

  • the most imperfections (pimples, blackheads, even skin scars related to pimples).

  • who need to hydrate their skin.

  • who need to have a brighter complexion : dilated pores giving the sensation of having a bad skin texture.

  • The texture of BB creams for men is light, which means that it will allow their skin to breathe better.
