BB Creams are Passe, CC Creams are the New Popular Girl in Class

By Glinda

Oh BB creams, we hardly knew ye.

You are now being unceremoniously shoved aside for something called a CC cream.  The CC stands for color correct, or color and care, or something similar where you can mix and match appropriate-sounding words that begin with C.


CC creams are supposed to provide better coverage than BB creams yet still retain their sheerness, contain more anti-aging ingredients, and moisturize better.

Well, I guess I can see why BB creams would be a thing of the past.

However, I’m sure there is someone waiting in the wings to invent a DD cream, or even an EE cream.

I think I’ll wait a little while before I spend my money.

    I’m still skeptical about the BB creams. From what I can tell, they seem simply like over-marketed, overpriced tinted moisturizer.

    Tinted moisturizers are what BB creams actually are. I’ve never found one of those that actually works better than my own well chosen foundation mixed with a few drops of a good moisturizer, right in the palm of my hand. These new CC creams are just those old fashioned skin whitener creams they’ve been selling to women with darker skin for many years. They are supposed to lighten skin spots (like chloasma/melasma, or skin freckling from sun exposure). Sure, they include some sunscreen now, but I’m wondering if they’re at all different from the “lightening” creams you can get at any Indian supermarket for less than $5, which actually make pretty good moisturizers.
