CC Cream 101

The beauty world changes everyday! Just when BB Cream has become the world wide go-to-one-stop-foundation/skin care HG, CC Cream has slowly emerged and starting to take center stage! So what is CC Cream? What does it do? And how does it differ from BB Cream? Let's find out!

What is CC Cream?
CC Cream stands for Color Control (or Color Corrector) Cream and is an improved version of the BB Cream. CC Cream was developed to retain all the benefits of BB Cream while providing more skin nourishing ingredients and better coverage.

How is CC Cream different from BB Cream?
Each brand's CC Cream and BB Cream can be different, but the generally accepted rule is that:
  • CC Cream has more shades than BB Cream
  • CC Cream has higher SPF than BB Cream
  • CC Cream is more light weight than BB Cream while providing better coverage (hence color control)
  • CC Cream has more emphasis on skin care benefits, such as lifting and firming


What CC Creams are available in the market?
Currently many brands are coming out with their own CC Cream in the Asian market, some notable brands include:
  • Clinique
  • Chanel
  • Lancome
  • L'Oreal
  • Olay
So what do you think about this new beauty fad? Leave me a comment and share your thoughts about CC Cream!
