The BB cream phenomenon has swept the beauty world by storm! Everyone and their mother has one – it’s insane. With a trend like this doing so well, beauty companies have been feeling the pressure to stay current and be innovative by creating products such as CC creams and even DD creams. Having so many similar products on the market have made it difficult to decide what these products do and if they are right for you and your beauty needs.

So, what puts the ‘BB’ in BB cream? Beauty balm! Contrary to popular belief, BB creams were first created in Germany, not in Asia. They were used as post-surgery repair creams that would be able to give the skin some colour all while healing and protecting it. Once BB creams made their way to Southeast Asia and became a hit there, they were introduced to western markets where they are becoming increasingly popular every day!

BB Creams are promoted as “one stop shop” facial products that replace primers, serums, moisturizers, sunscreens and foundations. They are extremely versatile and can be worn alone or used as a base for foundation to provide more coverage.

CC creams have all the same benefits as  BB creams but they are typically lighter in texture and provide more sheer coverage. The main purpose of this cream is to correct the colour of your complexion.

To break it down and put it simply, BB creams provides more anti-aging benefits whereas CC creams contain ingredients that brighten and correct hyper-pigmentation (scarring, uneven skin tone etc). Neither is better than the other – it simply comes down to what your beauty needs are and which one will benefit you more!
