What is a CC Cream?


We have all heard of BB creams by now, those “beauty balms” that help us multi-task our way to flawless skin. Now we are being introduced to a newer product … the CC cream. As CC creams begin to hit the market many wonder what’s the difference.
How are the CC’s different from BB’s?
CC creams do everything BB creams do… (hydrate, moisture, prime, illuminate, and protect from the sun & the environment. And, because most BB creams are lightly tinted they also help color correct or even-out the look of the skin tone (think tinted moisturizer). The difference with CC’s creams, are more corrective – that is, they offer more coverage (i.e. more pigment) to even out the skin tone, brighten the face and reduce visible signs of aging on the skin surface (i.e. on top of the skin)…so more like a foundation but lightweight and typically oil-free.
