Each month on shelves of cosmetic stores do appear several new BB-creams. Moreover, Dior has released bb-cream for eye area and L’Oreal Paris has released concealer, powder and blush — all with prefix bb. In the meantime, beauty brands continue to explore other letters of the alphabet. Meet CC-creams.
Before familiarizing with CC-creams let us remember features of famous BB-creams. He is multifunctional — one cream should replace 7 products: foundation, moisturizer, sun protection cream, anti-acne treatment, anti-wrinkles cream, primer, and corrector. BB-cream was accepted by women with a great enthusiasm and now specialists are working over a new cream that is going to be much better.
The abbreviation CC stands for several meanings: Complete Correction and Color Control (most common one). Like BB-cream, CC-cream came from Asia where it was launched in 2011 by Rachel K, a cosmetic company from Singapure. That cream was Mineral CC Cream and it conquered the Asians with high contents of botanical extracts and shade thus opening the way for the new trend.
So what is CC-cream?
CC-cream is an improved version of BB-cream. CC-cream contains less oils and therefore it has a light texture. It improves much better visusl lining of color and skin relief. It makes possible to apply cream on eye area for both covering and care.Besides this, CC-cream provides radiance and matte finish of T-zone. The cream provides persistence and therefore there is no need to use powder to fix make up. The cream contains more moisturizing, anti-aging and other helpful components. As with BB-creams, CC-creams have a modest range of colors — two or three shades. The ability to adapt to skin shade is greatly improved.
