This is What CC Cream REALLY does.

The primary purpose of CC, or Color Correcting, Cream is to correct color-related skin issues such as redness. Like BB Cream, CC Cream typically has SPF that varies by brand. If you’re acne prone, have dark spots, or constant redness then CC Cream is perfect for you. If you aren’t totally convinced that you need a good CC Cream in your life, then check out the top 3 reasons we’re obsessed with CC Cream.



Unlike it’s BB counterpart, CC Cream gives more full, foundation coverage. It still feels very light, as if you’re wearing nothing, but can really help cover discoloration, age spots, or pimples. Since CC Creams are very buildable, you can layer on as much or as little as you need. Maybe you’re having a rough week and need to double up, or even better your skin is doing great this week and you’ll just use one thin layer - either way CC Cream can adapt to your needs day by day.



While your BB Cream definitely has some serious preventative anti-aging benefits, CC Creams focus on repairing existing issues. This targeted treatment makes CC Cream the perfect solution for uneven skin tone and crow’s feet. The vitamins and antioxidants in CC Cream help soften fine lines. Nobody’s perfect, but it’s never too late to apologize to your skin for some of the mistreatment you put it through in your younger years!



Beyond these amazing benefits, consider the idea of simplifying your morning routine. Instead of reaching for moisturizer, sunscreen, foundation, AND concealer, you’ll just reach inside your makeup bag and take your magical multi-tasking tube of CC Cream. CC Cream can be your one and only, so why not give it a try?!
