What is The Difference Between CC Cream & BB Cream?

by Saly Jose Beauty Products

If you like the look of foundation but not the heavy feel, BB and CC creams are for you! These products are one part makeup and one part moisturizer. They are pigmented to help even out skin tones, but they are perfect to look and feel perfect. Although BB and CC creams share many characteristics, they are not the same. Read on to learn the difference between CC and BB creams, their main skin benefits, and how to use them as part of your daily skincare routine.

What is CC cream?

CC stands for "color corrector" or "corrector complex". An effective 2-in-1 skin care product, the CC cream provides almost the same effect as using a concealer and foundation.

What does CC cream do? 

In addition to providing lighter coverage than foundations, CC creams give you more anti-aging properties (AA + BB = CC!) and have a more airy texture compared to a heavy and heavy texture. CC cream is recommended for those who have 

  • Enlarged Pores 

  • Redness caused by rosacea 

  • Uneven texture. 

Look for a CC cream with niacinamide and vitamins B and E to help restore your skin's youthful glow. Niacinamide helps exfoliate the skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, while vitamins B and E help boost your skin's defenses against water loss. 

What is BB cream? 

BB cream is short for "spot balm" or "beauty balm", and is used to moisturize, protect and repair your skin.

What does BB cream do? 

Being lighter and providing more coverage than foundation, these tinted products provide full skin benefits. 

  • Refresh

  • Brightens 

  • Hydrate 

  • Smooth 

Another BB cream benefit found in most BB creams is sunscreen, which helps protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays. For best results, use a BB cream that contains ingredients like glycerin, niacinamide, and at least SPF 15. Glycerin helps keep skin hydrated by retaining moisture; Niacinamide helps increase surface cell turnover while removing dead skin cells for a fresh, even and fresh appearance; and SPF protects against UV rays.

The Difference Between CC and BB cream 

One of the differences between bb cream and cc cream is that while BB cream provides light coverage and added skincare benefits, CC cream is reserved for color correction. Its purpose is to help correct redness, dark spots or red skin that needs to be placed under foundation. 

In contrast, BB creams are useful when you need a little coverage and sun protection and hydration, without having to wear makeup.

BB and CC creams are also different from regular tinted lotions, which are lighter types of face creams that provide color.
