BB vs CC – Battle of the beauty creams

This year has seen the biggest revolution in the cosmetics world, ever since the BB Cream has taken over every beauty retailer in the UK; we’ve been introduced to a new miracle skincare regime that has transformed our lives.

Known as Beauty Balm or Blemish Balm depending on their formulas, the BB Cream is hailed as the new beauty ‘miracle’ but it’s basically a tinted moisturizer with added skincare benefits.

But just as we’re about to settle for this being the biggest thing to come into our lives this year, here comes the CC Cream. CC standing for ‘Colour Correcting’, this cream does exactly what it says on the tin, improving the colour of your complexion to give you a flawless finish.

With all the added benefits of supreme ingredients that nourish and hydrate your skin, the CC cream advances the BB cream with a stronger and more complex formula to not only cover blemishes and redness but combat the root cause of the problem to improve your natural skin tone.
Packed with anti-oxidants, this latest skincare/make-up hybrid is the lightweight 2.0 version of the BB cream.
