Waitrose's $4 supermarket baby butt cream in the UK has become a cult favorite for women—who use it on their faces! The Guardian reports: "Usually in these circumstances I frown on this sort of hype—but it's all true! After years of searching for the ultimate facial cream, dabbling in Dr Haushka, REN, Eve Lom and myriad expensive numbers, I fell upon BBB several years ago and never looked back.
