Ok you know how we have BB Creams? They are all the rage in the US lately right? Well get ready to start hearing about another type of product – CC Cream.
What the heck is a CC Cream? I started hearing about them at the beginning of the year and was really intrigued as to what the differences were with CC Creams and BB Creams. So here is the scoop.
CC Creams stand for Color Correcting Cream. The Juice Beauty CC Cream (certified organic) is a twelve in one multi-tasker. Most BB Creams don’t do quite as much as a CC Cream does.
- Repairs damage
- Evens skin tone & texture
- Firms & improves elasticity
- Reduces fine lines & wrinkles
- Creates a radiant, glowing complexion
- Balances skin tone
- Rich in antioxidants
- Protects with chemical free SPF 30 · Mineral tinted coverage
- Ultimate moisturizer
- Skin perfecting color
- Great for all skin types
Juice Beauty is actually a Bay Area company and you can read their story here. They have mostly certified organic products, all gluten-free, and they said as of mid last year, most everything is also vegan. They have a line with Alicia Silverstone which is 100% vegan.
The texture of the CC Cream is more like a tinted moisturizer than a BB Cream. It has a thick texture, but not heavy coverage. It actually is very minimal in the coverage department in terms of covering red areas and evening out my skin-tone. Definitely more like a tinted moisturizer than a BB Cream. It does a good job of hiding pores, like a primer would, but maybe not quite as good as some primers.
It has a very herbal/medicinal scent, which I don’t love, but it goes away after a bit.
Overall: I like all the benefits it claims to have, but it just didn’t offer enough coverage for me. I kind of felt like I was wearing nothing more than just the slightest hint of something on my face or just a primer. When compared to all the BB Creams I have tried, I definitely prefer them over this. I feel TOO naked!
