BB or CC Cream? Which one to choose?

Part skincare, part makeup, they correct the appearance of blemishes so your skin looks perfect and is ready for makeup. But which one should you choose? And why should you have to choose? Did you know that you can combine them too? 

We tell you all you need to know about these tinted creams, which will soon become your new beauty essentials!

Our CC Crème illuminates any complexion while moisturizing at the same time. This pioneering hybrid product combines skincare with makeup and reveals a unique, transforming texture… In just 3 seconds, it works its magic: on contact with the skin, the CC pigments change color and adjust to your skin tone. Simply dab onto the forehead, cheekbones and bridge of the nose, then blend over the face to correct and even out your complexion! 

If you have special skin needs, we have expert products: 

- CC Red Correct is ideal for fair skin tones that are prone to redness.

For matte, velvety, "baby" skin!

It's THE secret to Korean women's perfect skin!  

The BB Crème is the ultimate skin-perfecting formula. It works to even out skin tone, conceal blemishes and provide a "peachy soft skin" effect.

This beauty essential is a clever combination of skincare and makeup: it melts on the skin, moisturizes your face, and helps to even out and mattify the complexion while giving a non-oily, velvety finish. 

Imperfections seem to disappear and your skin's texture looks refined. It feels supple and silky, just like baby skin.

But that's not all! The BB Crème also offers SPF 20 UV protection. 

Tip: If you want a matt, velvety finish, the BB Crème is the product for you!

CC Crème

Our CC Crème is available in 3 shades: Clair, Doré and Caramel. 

The "Clair" shade is perfect for fair complexions with pink or beige undertones, while the "Doré" shade is ideal for enhancing lightly bronzed or tanned skin. A little tanner will perfectly match the Caramel shade. 

CC Red Correct is ideal for fair skin tones that are prone to redness.

CC Dull Correct adapts to skin tone and helps instantly camouflage dull or tired complexions thanks to its colour-correcting effect. 

BB Crème

The iconic BB Crème is available in 4 shades: Clair, Nude, Doré and Caramel.  

If you long for a porcelain complexion and have very fair skin, choose the Clair shade.

The Nude shade is more suitable for those with beige and pink undertones who want a natural effect. 

Use the Doré shade if you want to enhance your lightly tanned or matte skin, for a healthy glow effect.

If you have dark or quite tanned skin, you'll love our new Caramel shade ‚Äď the latest to join the BB family! Plus, it's perfect for contouring!¬†
