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.

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 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!

CC Cream

Our CC Cream 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 Cream

The iconic BB Cream 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 – the latest to join the BB family! Plus, it's perfect for contouring!

A lotion is an essential step in Korean women's beauty rituals.
Its main benefit is that it gives the skin a shot of hydration and dramatically enhances the moisturizing benefits of the products applied afterwards.
To help you understand how it works, imagine a sponge: if it's already moist, it will soak up more water than a dry sponge.
