Don't be taken aback, but yes, BB creams are being defrauded too nowadays. I was surprised to read about this beauty breaking news and wondered if I ever did slather on a fake BB cream. If you can recall, I was able to get my hands on several BB creams including Skinfood Aloe, Elianto Miracle Multiplex, Purederm Magic, Dr. Jart Silver and Skin79 Waterdrop. I wish I knew how to check each tube's authenticity.

If there's one good thing about this sad news, not all BB creams have been duped. Currently, only Missha, Skinfood and Skin79 brands are experiencing issues.

I have to commend these girls for sharing their Sherlock Holmes moments. They did an amazing job with their BB cream sleuthing to alarm readers about these rip-offs. Here are more beauty detectives:

However, I cannot rule out the fact that these posts might not be as real as they seem. These write-ups might be circulated to bring certain companies down, eliminate resellers, or whatever purpose there is that you can probably think of. The articles seem to be authentic (actually, helpful!) in my opinion, but it is equally essential to still consider the other possibility.

Please read these three blog pages that I referred to for an in-depth note. You can make your own conclusion after reading each post. While Sparkle Apple seems to be the most reliable post, she failed to do a side by side testing with the original product. I'm a bit skeptic about Vivavoomz' and Little Makeup Box's posts since the former posted pictures provided by Skin79 Singapore while the latter was promoting their BB cream shop.

I'd love to know what you think of these fake bb creams and on the articles that are supposed to help us check out our blemish balm babies.

If fake bb creams are truly just around the corner (hello, ebay), please be careful in purchasing. I love bb creams (my current love: Purederm Magic) and I hate to conclude that there are phonies wrecking the market.
