I used to travel the country as a BB Frosch representative. But, not anymore. Now I can finally give an honest review of BB Frosch and their entire lineup.
I think most of the products are high-quality, but will they work for exactly what you need it for? Scroll to the product you’re looking for a review of and see what the verdict is.
- BB Frosch Paint transformer is great
- If you’re thinking about buying it then get it!
What is BB Frösch?
BB Frösch is a company that sells paint-transforming products and accessories. They offer painting kits, brushes, wax, and powders that you can add to regular paint. What they really specialize in is the paint transformers. The paint transformers are powders you add to regular paint to get chalk paint or mineral paints. In this BB Frosch review, I’ll be covering the paint transformers the most.
BB Frosch Paint Transformer Powder Review
There are quite a few benefits to using BB Frosch chalk paint powder. This product makes it so you can turn any kind of paint into chalk paint. This means you can use any color you want. There are no health hazards with it either like the homemade powder that some people promote online. Do NOT make your own chalk paint powder at home because it can be very dangerous for your health.
Is BB Frosch Chalk Paint Transformer Worth the Cost?
It’s cheaper than pre-mixed chalk paint. The cost of the powder to mix up to one gallon is under $40. A gallon of normal chalk paint is around $160 and you can mix your own chalk paint by using BB Frosch for under $60. That’s $100 of savings!
The price of it fluctuates sometimes because of how crazy the economy is right now so I don’t want to say exactly how much it is. Their paint transformer will leave you with more chalk paint for a lower price. All of the pre-made chalk paints are so expensive! There’s not really a benefit of using the premade chalk paint either. Why not get more for less?
One of the main questions people are always asking about BB Frosch is…
Does BB Frosch Chalk Paint Powder Really Work?
Short answer, yes. There aren’t really any problems with using this paint transformer to create your own. The purpose of using chalk paint in the first place is to avoid prep work. This means no priming, no sanding, and no stripping. Then, you want a nice chalk-paint-looking finish too, right? Well, this is exactly what you get with BB Frosch. As I mentioned before, I used to travel around the country as a representative for the company. I would NOT have done this if their products didn’t work.
Want to see some BB Frosch projects that I’ve done over the years? Yes? I thought you might! I’ve painted so many things with chalk paint powder and I’m going to share some photos with you below.
I have so many more photos that I could share with you but I’m having a hard time finding them. These should be enough to give you an idea that BB Frosch does actually work!
What about the BB Frosch Wax?
Well, this is how you know I’m being honest and not getting paid to say this. The BB Frosch Premium Wax is not really for me. It kind of gave me a headache because the smell is strong. The product itself is good but I don’t use it anymore.
I would recommend using Jolie Wax instead. It was cheaper and it didn’t give me a headache.
The premium wax is eco-friendly and does a good job. You probably won’t ever have to re-wax anything that you use it on again. I really just can’t get over the headaches from the smell.
BB Frosch – The Final Verdict
Their products are great overall. I would definitely get the BB Frosch Chalk Paint Powder but I’d skip out on the wax if you’re sensitive to smell. The paint transformer is such a game-changer when it comes to painting furniture or any DIY project at home. Not having to prep everything to paint it is great. The paint powder helps cover everything evenly and you don’t have to put a protective coat over it if you don’t want to.
