Difference Between BB Cream and CC Cream

Is CC Cream the New BB Cream?

Confusing? Why yes. By now you probably know (and worship at the lid) of BB cream, but that cover-all blemish balm is about to get a sibling — CC cream. It stands for colour control or colour correct, and so far, Chanel has launched one in the US, along with Olay. The product has all the same benefits as a BB cream — restorative, good coverage, hydrating, pore minimising — but with a greater focus on concealing pigmentation, redness, fine lines and wrinkles.

CC cream is more nourishing for the skin due to ingredients including white and green tea extracts and macadamia nut oil, and it is supposed to last longer after application and cause less breakouts (a common side effect when using BB cream). The jury is still out as to whether Chanel will launch their CC cream in Australia but if they do, it is looking like 2014. In the meantime, you might like to try Rachel K Cosmetics.
