What is CC Cream?
And now, let’s dive into the world of CC Creams. The “CC” in CC Cream typically stands for “Color Corrector”. When comparing BB Creams and CC Creams, although they’re pretty similar they do have a few differences. CC Creams typically tend to provide a little more coverage since their purpose is to correct color. I’ve found that CC Creams usually have a bit of thicker texture/consistency since their purpose is to provide a bit more coverage. Also, since CC Creams are marketed as color correctors, you typically don’t have to use a separate color corrector in your routine.
Just like BB Creams, CC Creams tend to also have skincare benefits and SPF as well. Before we wrap up our CC Cream talk, I just want to quickly mention the difference between a CC Cream and a foundation. Since CC Creams tend to be a little more full coverage than BB Creams, there is a fine line when it comes to the difference between a foundation and a CC Cream. When comparing both, I would say that foundations are a little bit heavier and they also typically don’t have many skincare benefits to them.
