If you are looking for a CC cream, or are not exactly sure what one is, you have come to the right place. Whereas BB creams stand for beauty balm/ blemish balm, CC cream is short for colour correction/control. Many of us were (not long ago) scouring the Internet and shops in a BB cream frenzy, as they seemed to be the answer to all of our makeup concerns.
Well, move over BB creams – there’s a new chief in town; BB creams are our new skincare wonder. CC creams do all the work that BB creams take on, such as ward of signs of aging, hydrate, moisturise, and providing an SPF – but they also have one or two other tricks up their sleeve.
CC creams actually work as a tinted moisturiser that actively diminishes signs of blemishes, dark spots, redness, and give the complexion a beautiful luminosity. Check out these amazing BB creams that deal with a multitude of sins, leaving us feeling beautifully radiant.
