After BB cream comes CC cream.
BB cream stands for blemish balm or blemish base, promoted as an all-in-one facial cosmetic product to replace your serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation and sunblock.
And now there’s CC cream, which stands for Color Control—a must-have product for those who want to achieve a natural skin tone.
I’m currently using the Face It Aura CC Cream SPF30 PA++ (Php 1,595), which comes in this interesting package—a round compact with a clear push button, to pump small amounts of cream to your sponge.
I use this after applying concealer under my eyes and on my freckles, and finish this off with a powder fix.
I like it because it looks so natural with a dewy finish, instead of the heavy cakey feel of many foundations.
But I have yet find out if it is refillable because the packaging is too fancy to throw away.
The Face Shop also has the Face It Smart Capsule CC Cream SPF40 PA++ (Php 1,595).
While both products offer anti-aging, brightening, and UV protection benefits, there’s a slight difference:
The Aura CC is a liquid makeup base, while the Smart Capsule CC Cream finds the most natural skin color for the user.
It comes in three capsule colors: yellow, black and red which gets broken when applied using fingertips (it needs body heat to release the pigments).
This means no matter how dark or fair the skin is, the CC cream will automatically find the most natural skin tone.
The Smart Capsule CC Cream’s main ingredient is the Italian Blood Orange which brightens the skin and contains more vitamin C than normal oranges, giving excellent anti-oxidant effects.
Designed to offer more coverage than BB creams, The Face Shop’s CC cream still goes on sheer, moisturizes better and contains hard-core anti-aging ingredients.
