Just as BB Creams started to take off and become mainstream, whispers of CC Creams started hitting magazines and blogs. So what is the difference and which one is right for you?
CC Creams stand for Color Control (or Correcting) Cream. Like the BB (Beauty Balm) Cream, it is meant to be an all-in-one product. The point of a CC Cream is to take all of the benefits of a BB Cream, which was originally created as a skincare product and add more makeup-like ingredients to help with redness, dark spots or uneven skin tone.
It is important to note, that the benefits and consistency will vary from brand to brand. In general, a CC Cream is meant to be more like a foundation to give that color correction, but maintain the idea of being lightweight, buildable and packed with great ingredients.
Building upon the popularity of BB Creams, CC Creams also tend to have a more targeted approach with the ingredients it uses for skin issues such as winkles, dullness and redness.
