We’ll forgive you if you’re not quite clear on what CC Cream is just yet. That’s why this guide exists! Keep reading to learn all the basics about CC Cream and how to choose the right one for you. We’ll answer questions like ‘how to use CC Cream for oily skin’ and ‘how to apply CC Cream’ to help you up your makeup game. We’ll also give you some confidence building product recommendations from our Your Skin But Better collection, designed with insights from plastic surgeons and dermatologists.
What is CC Cream?
CC Cream stands for colour correcting cream, which is why this innovative multitasking product is so good at eliminating the appearance of hyperpigmentation and skin discolouration. What’s the difference between a CC Cream and a BB Cream? Unlike BB Creams, CC Creams provide full foundation-like coverage with a hydrating formula enriched with anti-ageing skincare ingredients. In fact, our CC Creams provide the benefits of 7 products in one.
What Are The Benefits of CC Cream?
The skin-loving ingredients in our CC Cream formulas create an amazing range of benefits. In fact, our CC Cream formulas can provide all the benefits of a full coverage foundation, a hydrating anti-ageing serum, sun protection and more.
By replacing your foundation or BB Cream with a CC Cream, you can streamline your skincare and makeup routine by using a formula that incorporates the best benefits of both. CC Cream has the unique benefit of improving the look of your skin concerns via coverage while simultaneously targeting them with nourishing ingredients to help you look your best with and without makeup.
When to Use CC Cream
Use your CC Cream on freshly cleansed skin, after you’ve finished up your regular skincare routine. Applying your CC Cream to a well-prepped base will help create a flawless, natural-looking finish. In order to ensure the sun protection benefits of your CC Cream are working, we recommend applying the cream at least 20 minutes before you’ll be exposed to the sun.
How to Apply CC Cream
If you’re after a ‘no makeup makeup’ look with lighter coverage, simply apply a single light layer of CC Cream with our Heavenly Luxe Complexion Perfection Brush 7 or a sponge to blend. For a full coverage look, build more layers in the central part of your face or where discolouration is present. Depending on your desired coverage and look, you can also follow up with a face powder.
How to Pick the Right CC Cream
We’ve created a range of three different CC Creams to make sure that you can find your perfect match no matter your skin type or concerns. Let’s break down the benefits of our original, oil-control and illumination formulas to help you choose the formula best suited to your complexion.
