I have been using my BB creams, I must admit, have been loving it, since it is very natural, still gives me skin a finished look, moisturizes, has SPF 20 and it is proven to reduct wrinkles, so I use my night cream with a stronger formula and the BB cream during the day! BB stands for Blemish Balm or Blemish Base, these creams seem like a small miracle. These are one-step products that can protect, conceal, and correct skin texture and tone. There are many brands in the market, this is what I use:
Well, until my friend, who is a make up artist at Lotus Salon, shared the new CC Cream and even DD Cream!
The difference between BB and CC creams is subtle–CC generally stands for “color correcting” and the products are meant to address issues like redness or sallowness (usually with light-diffusing particles), whereas BB creams are like lighter foundation with a few skin care benefits thrown in. “CC cream is a color corrector and will be lighter on the skin. Again, with many options in the market, Clinique’s cream seems to have the best reviews! I have not yet purchased mine, but will be doing it soon!
Some of the Brands selling them:

Sephora, Macys and other retailers sell a great selection of CC creams!
I know, it sounds like ABC for your Skin! Are you ready??
Julep is releasing a “Dynamic Do-All” cream this summer, and it sounds like a BB/CC hybrid. The cosmetics industry was predicting something different for DD creams. Back in November of 2012, a cosmetics industry analyst told Cosmetic Design that a number of DD creams, called “Daily Defense” creams ready to launch, but they aren’t for your face–rather they are “heavy duty body and foot creams.” So it will be interesting to see what Julep did on that category with its forthcoming launch! I can’t wait!
