We are hearing a lot of buzz lately around a new product launch in the beauty industry called “CC Creams”. Like the “BB Creams” of the world (referred to alternately as “blemish balms” and “beauty balms”), the “Colour Correcting” CC Creams are tinted antioxidant-packed skin-care/makeup hybrids that originally launched in Asia to address the market’s need for brightening, lightening and correcting.
Now in North America, CC Cream stands for “Colour Correcting Cream”. An all-in-one product for every skin type and tone that is a tinted moisturizer, skin brightener, primer, foundation, SPF and anti-aging cream. CC Creams are said to be lighter than BB Creams, yet offers better coverage.
After doing my research, I had to ask? Why should I jump on the “BB/CC Cream” band wagon? When will the “EE” or “FF Creams” come out and what would they even mean? Did a CC Cream not already exist? Of course it did, it was just not originally marketed that way.
BB and CC Creams have been here well before all the hype… we call it “Skin Care Makeup”. At Etiket we are big fans of glominerals makeup which combines pharmaceutical-grade ingredients, pure natural pigment minerals and an advanced blend of antioxidants and vitamins. These ingredients not only make your skin look beautiful but they also protect your skin while improving tone and texture.
glominerals has for several years had a “CC Cream”, it’s called Protective Liquid Foundation. It not only covers blemishes and imperfections, it also leaves the skin radiant with a healthy glow. Formulated with a blend of antioxidants, including Vitamins A, C and E, Green Tea, Malachite and Cucumber Fruit Extract, this foundation provides nutrients vital to maintaining skin’s healthy radiance.
If you prefer something a bit more sheer like I do, glominerals‘ version of the “BB Cream” is their Sheer Tint Base. A sheer tinted moisturizer, with anti-aging benefits that hydrates, and protects while providing sheer coverage to illuminate the skin. It looks very natural and I love the healthy glow it gives my skin!
