I like asian BB creams because they feel better on my skin.  I haven't tried enough brands to know if they are as hydrating as they promise. I don't think they're meant to be used as primers though.  I also found that asian bb creams only come in a few shades, so unless you're pretty fair, you might not find a good fit.  I haven't found one that matches my skin as well as a foundation will.


Jen from frmheadtotoe has a huge post about asian BB creams here.  I found it helpful when I was first picking one out.


She says in a more recent video that BB creams don't work that well now that she's in a sunnier state though.
