We all love a full-face beat; covering our skin’s imperfections with a full coverage foundation and concealer. However, it may not be the most ideal for daily wear, especially under our hot and humid weather. This is where CC creams come to play.
A CC cream is designed to correct any discolouration, hyperpigmentation or dullness for a ‘my skin but better’ look. So if you’re looking for an easy, everyday product that can add some ‘oomph’ to your natural skin, you’re at the right place. Continue reading for some of the best Korean CC creams you can find in the market.
What’s the difference between BB cream and CC cream?
A BB (Beauty Balm) cream is basically the infusion of makeup and skincare. Typically, a BB cream acts as a multitasking product, combining moisturiser, SPF, primer and light foundation into one.
On the other hand, a CC (Colour Correcting) cream provides slightly better coverage over skin texture and tones than BB creams do. It helps to cancel out any skin discolouration and dullness to reveal naturally perfected skin. All in all, both products are designed to be a simpler and lightweight alternative to thick and heavy foundations.
Slapping on thick, full coverage foundations to cover skin redness might aggravate your sensitive skin even more. Instead, opt for the Cicapair Re-cover to colour correct and treat your flare-ups at the same time. Thanks to its key active ingredient, tiger grass, it works to alleviate and soothe damaged skin.
Koreans take their skincare very seriously in order to treat and prevent future damages especially from the sun. That interest is reflected in this CC cream, which firms and offers sebum-control power as well as provide UV defence, holding a SPF30 PA++ rating.
The cc cream is a light-purple, multi-pigment formula that colour-neutralises your skin tone for a brighter complexion.
