BB vs CC Cream : The difference between BB Cream and CC Cream

Whether you want a natural or a sophisticated look, the best products for a perfectly even complexion are BB and CC creams. 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!


For a luminous finish!

This hi-tech, multi-purpose formula works to correct blemishes, even out skin tone and leave an ultra-natural, luminous finish! 

Our CC Cream illuminates any complexion while moisturizing at the same time. This pioneering hybrid product combines skincare with makeup and reveals a unique, transforming texture… On contact with the skin, the CC pigments change color and adjust to your skin tone. 

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

- CC Red Correct is ideal for fair skin tones that are prone to redness. 
- CC Dull Correct is perfect for your dull and tired-looking complexion.

The CC Cream also boasts another benefit: an SPF 25 sunscreen.


Tip: If you're looking for a luminous finish, the CC Cream is the product for you!  

And if you want an even more perfect finish, you can mix it with a little BB Cream, which provides greater coverage.

How and when to use your CC Cream?

CC cream has a soft texture, very easy to apply with your finger tips. Wash your hands first then simply dab your CC Cream onto your forehead, cheekbones and bridge of your nose. Blend over the face to even out your complexion; It corrects the appearance of minor imperfections and moisturises your skin at the same time. Blending is essential to obtain an ultra-natural finish.

As a skincare-centric makeup, CC Cream is an everyday partner: the more you use it, the more benefits for your skin you get. And in just 3 seconds, it works its magic!


For matte, velvety, "baby" skin!

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

The BB Cream 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 Cream also offers SPF 20 UV protection. 

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

BB Cream also exists in stick ! Discover BB Crayon. 


How and when to use your BB Cream?

As it is for CC Cream, you can use your fingers to apply BB Cream all over your face.

It might seem to be the easiest option since it simply melts with the heat of your skin, but doing so might not be the best way to make the most of your BB Cream. Using a sponge or a makeup blender could help you obtain an even smoother result.

Not only is it more hygienic, but it can also help you get the perfect complexion, without knowing any specific technique the hands-on-approach might require.

In any case, spread your BB Cream toward your neck and hairline. Even though BB Cream may offer a much lighter coverage than a foundation, it is important to avoid any harsh lines.

BB cream can be used on a daily basis and could become the best time-saver in your morning routine! Both care and makeup, it protects your skin, conceals blemishes and mattifies complexion, all in one touch!

Can I combine CC Cream and BB Cream? 

BB Cream or CC Cream can be enough on their own but they can also be combined in order to make your complexion even better. If after applying your CC Cream you still feel like you need an even smoother matte finish, you can layer your BB Cream up.


CC Cream

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