Have you made the switch from tinted moisturiser to BB cream? Not too sure what the point of BB cream is? A bit scared that it won’t have as much coverage as your favourite powder?
With spring now fully underway and warmer weather coming very soon, it’s time to try a lighter alternative to foundation that will protect and care for your skin at the same time! But should you go for a BB or CC Cream? We are sampling both the Revlon Photoready BB Cream and the Age Defying CC Cream in some of our September bellaboxes, so let's take a look at the difference between these two products.
Of course you’ve heard of BB cream by now. It stands for “beauty balm” or “blemish balm”, and it is a combination of skincare ingredients and a light coverage to help give you a flawless complexion. While formulations do vary, generally a BB cream contains primer, moisturiser, sunscreen and light foundation.
The Revlon Photoready BB Cream is a great choice for your first BB cream. It combines skincare, makeup and sunscreen into one step. It smoothes like a primer, covers like foundation, blurs flaws like a concealer, hydrates like a moisturiser and protects your skin with SPF 30 sunscreen.
Think BB Creams are old news? Ready to move onto CC Cream?
CC stands for colour correcting, and these creams are generally used to cover redness, even skin tone and add luminosity. They are a little more hard working than a BB cream, and often have a bit more coverage.
Revlon’s Age Defying CC Cream is a colour correcting anti-ageing cream that targets the initial signs of ageing, while providing you with great coverage and helping to make your skin look bright, radiant and more youthful. It proves SPF sunscreen protection, moisture, coverage, luminosity and an even skin tone.
