9 of the best CC creams and tinted moisturisers for summer

9 of the best CC creams and tinted moisturisers for summer

During the summer months, we need to switch up our face bases and opt for lighterweight options. If we don’t pores can become clogged when we sweat, which means breakouts, dehydration and severe dullness. We have selected our edit of the best CC creams, BB creams and tinted moisturisers on the market depending on what you and your skin need.

BB, CC creams and tinted moisturisers: What’s the difference?

  • BB cream – Known as a “beauty balm”, BB creams are all-rounders for evening out the skin tone without feeling heavy like a traditional foundation.
  • CC cream – Otherwise known as “colour correcting cream”, CC’s are great if you have pigmentation, redness or discolouration in the skin as they help to combat it.
  • Tinted moisturiser – Hydrating and lightweight, these don’t tend to target any specific areas, but give an all-round healthy-looking and natural complexion.
