Do you know the difference between BB cream and CC cream? It’s time to get polished up on your beauty vocabulary with our easy guide.

 

BB creams (short for beauty or blemish creams) are like tinted moisturizers with few skincare benefits such as added moisture, while CC creams are designed for ‘colour correcting’ redness and uneven skin tone.

 

Use every morning following serum and moisturiser, and watch it cover underlying blemishes and unbalanced complexion resulting in a smoother base for your concealer. On weekends why not give your skin a break and wear it alone as it leaves you with sheer, skin-perfecting coverage.

 

The CC Crème from Korean-French brand Erborian has been an instant hit with our editors and has been selling out across Sephora stores. What makes it particularly good for us living in the sunshine, is that it’s packed with UVA/UVB protection thanks to mineral-based titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, which also aids in minimising first signs of ageing. By Terry has also performed well due to the silky texture diffusing light creating an even finish and camouflaging imperfections, while the Centifolia roses native cells add a boost of hydration.
