Makeup trends are moving so fast. I’m not even finished with my BB cream bottle and I just talked about BB creams the other day. Now moving on (and fast!) we are officially into CC Creams. What’s next? Would it be DD creams and stands for Double Dilemma (for putting too much beauty cream on the face), Double Damage or Done Deal (because your face became so beautiful after using the DD cream and you can officially say that this is Done Deal?) Okay, I am making all these abbreviations up.
Kidding Aside, CC cream stands for Color Correcting cream or Color control cream. It is supposed to be the improved and refined version of the BB cream also known as the blemish balm or beauty balm cream. The original BB cream was originally formulated in Germany and has in recent years gained a huge following in Asia and is quickly made its way to Europe and the USA for its skin-regenerating properties. But watch out for CC cream, it is giving BB cream a run for its money as it is becoming popular too now around the world to provide natural-looking skin coverage with the hope to replace the BB cream. While BB cream was manufactured primarily as a skincare product, CC cream was developed to retain all the skincare benefits of BB cream with added nourishing ingredients and the additional purpose to provide more effective skin coverage.
BB promised to be everything primer, tinted moisturizer, SPF then CC promises to be all that and more! It’s like BB cream on steroids!
