CC Cream – BB Creams on Steroids

Posted on August 29, 2012


BB cream what?? Exactly! The new CC cream is here (Color Control). They are the next generations of BB creams (Blemish Balm) which were first used in South Korea. And if you still have not tried out a BB cream, they are moisturizers souped-up to also cover like a sheer foundation and treat skincare concerns like acne and fighting wrinkles.

CC creams are essentially BB creams on steroids. They now offer more powerful anti-aging ingredients, moisturize the skin better, and offer more coverage but still go on sheer offering a more natural looking skin tone. They are also much more lighter and oil-free making them pore-friendly to those prone to acne brekaouts.

So in summary, CC creams = an all-in-1 product that acts as a skin brightening primer, foundation, moisturizer, SPF sun protection, and anti-aging cream.

Sounds too good to be true! The first CC cream to hit the USA will be in October by Olay called the Total Effects CC Tone Correcting Moisturizer. However if you live in Asia, you can certainly get your hands on Chanel’s CC Cream only offered in China at the moment (price tag of around $90 for 30 ml). Can’t wait to try some! In the meanwhile, I’ll stick to my TwinLuxe Anti-Aging SPF Moisturizer (only $48 for 50 ml) as my best overall skin care product of 2012.
