What is a CC cream?


Like BB cream, CC cream is an all-in-one product from Korea. The difference ? It is a day care that moisturizes and contains anti-aging active ingredients, unlike BB, which is primarily a make-up tool (unifies and smoothes the complexion), even if it also has skincare qualities. But the particularity of the CC cream ("Color Control") is that it contains pigments that adjust to the complexion and provide light and radiance to the complexion, without bringing any real coverage. And most often, CC cream offers a higher sun protection factor than BB cream (SPF 30 or 50).

How do I use it?

It is applied after the serum (if using one) on the face and neck. Then you can move on to make-up:foundation, concealer, powder or... BB cream.
