5 BB, CC creams worth the splurge

Beauty balms and color correcting creams first started in Asian markets somewhere in the mid-80s before making it to the United States in 2012, thanks to dermatologist Dr. Christine Schrammek. A BB cream contains a serum, a moisturizer, a primer, a foundation, and a sunscreen. A CC cream is almost the same thing. What is the difference? Well, a CC cream possesses a color correcting medium and may contain optics or light-diffusing particles that help cover the skin more so than the average beauty balm product. Infused with an array of minerals, a CC cream is heavier than a BB cream but still lighter than a traditional foundation. After trying many this year, I have discovered five BB creams and CC creams worth the splurge.


The erborian CC Creme High Definition Radiance Face Cream Skin Perfector

Whether you are looking to protect your skin from various environmental stresses, or simply looking for hydration that is immediate and long-lasting, this exquisite erborian gem will provide your skin with this. It will also boost your radiance up a notch. Infused with an array of natural ingredients, this CC cream is worth the splurge.


Laneige BB Cushion Pore Blur

Utilizing Skin Fit technology, as well as, a unique pore-minimizing blend of pine needle and mint water, this lavish Laneige addition will provide your skin with instantaneous coverage that is light, long-lasting, and buildable. With an extensive shade range, this pore-perfection gem is one of the best beauty balms you will ever put on your face, making it absolutely “pore-fect.”


The it Cosmetics CC+ Cream with SPF 50+

There is a reason why this CC cream is a cult-classic staple. Unlike a traditional BB cream and CC cream, which uses five products in one product, this incredible it cosmetics award-winner uses seven, including a dark spot concealer and a hydrating anti-aging serum. Tell me, what is better than that?


NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint

As NARS is known for their blush, what many fail to realize is that their beauty balms and color correcting mediums are as good. As a weightless, all-in-one tinted moisturizer beauty balm, this oil-free formula will provide your skin the right amount of color and ingredients to last through your entire day.


MDSolarSciences MD Creme Mineral Beauty Balm

If you can imagine a multifaceted beauty balm that uses an array of natural ingredients that work together to create magic on your face, it is clearly this one. Using eco-friendly and naturally derived ingredients, including caffeine, this magnificent mineral is not just the holy grail of BB creams, but in the world of beauty as well.
