BB cream and CC cream are both multi-functional skincare products that offer light coverage and additional skincare benefits. However, there are some differences between the two:

  1. Blemish Balm (BB) Cream:
  • BB cream is a versatile product that combines skincare and makeup benefits.
  • It provides light to medium coverage, helping to even out the skin tone, conceal blemishes, and provide a natural-looking finish.
  • BB creams generally offer some sun protection with added SPF.
  • They often contain moisturizing ingredients, antioxidants, and other skincare benefits.
  1. Color Correcting (CC) Cream:
  • CC cream is similar to BB cream but focuses more on correcting complexion issues such as redness, uneven skin tone, and dullness.
  • It has a slightly lighter texture and offers more coverage compared to BB cream.
  • CC creams usually have a color-correcting technology that helps to neutralize discoloration and achieve a more even skin tone.
  • They often contain ingredients like peptides, vitamins, and botanical extracts to provide nourishing and anti-aging benefits.


While BB creams are generally more focused on providing a natural-looking finish with some skincare benefits, CC creams target specific complexion concerns and offer more coverage for color correction. The choice between BB cream and CC cream depends on individual preferences and skin concerns.
