You’ve probably heard of BB cream but have you heard of CC cream? Different from a beauty balm, a CC or color correcting cream, offers multiple benefits in an all-in-one package. Interested? We’re sharing our favorites below!
Looking to join in on the hottest new beauty trend this summer? We’re loving CC creams and we’ve gone through tons to find our nine favorite picks for summer. We’re sharing them with you below!
CC Creams — What Are They?
A CC cream is a color correcting cream. It’s thicker and offers more full coverage than a BB cream, but it’s still light enough to wear in the hot weather. AA + BB = CC. Basically, the formula of anti aging and beauty properties lead to the CC concoction. CC cream tones, conceals, hydrates, protects with a high SPF and smooths fine lines.
We are really loving the best-selling Peter Thomas Roth CC Cream. It’s incredibly long-lasting and covers redness and imperfections, but is still lighter than a traditional foundation. For a more affordable option, try Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 CC Cream. It gently exfoliates while providing tons of moisture and UV protection.
CC Vs. BB — What’s The Difference?
A BB cream is a beauty balm or a blemish balm. It’s a very light foundation similar to a tinted moisturizer. Though there are many formulas, it’s basically an all-in-one consisting of serum, primer, coverage and sometimes sunscreen. The formula renews, brightens, clears and tones skin.
There are also BB and CC creams for your hair as well as your face!
