If you have set foot in drugstores or any cosmetics stores near you, chances are you are bombarded by varieties of BB Cream and CC Cream from many brands. These creams are potential skin-perfecting options like a traditional foundation which are also known as a tinted moisturiser. But what do they actually do? What are the differences between BB Cream and CC Cream?
Let us break it down for you.
What is a Tinted Moisturiser?
If you are all into beauty products, we believe you have most likely heard of tinted moisturiser. The name itself is self-explanatory which means it is a hybrid product of skin care and make up, just like how we like to emphasise our BB Cream and CC Cream as tinted moisturiser with skin care benefits in a tube.
If you have been wondering what you are missing in your beauty routine, it must be a tinted moisturiser. You can never achieve flawless looking skin with just skin care because blemishes and uneven skin tone on your skin are most likely still obvious even when your pimple or acne scars have faded or gone. But with make up, you definitely can!
The right tinted moisturiser is able to provide light to medium coverage to the skin while hydrating the skin and leaving a sheer radiant finish. It allows your skin to breathe and keeps your make up looking fresh and natural but enhanced as compared to your bare skin. It is lightweight and usually formulated as non-comedogenic which makes the makeup free from clogging pores. If you are looking for everyday make up or no-makeup make up look, this one is for you.
BB stands for “beauty balm” or “blemish balm”. The main purpose is pretty straightforward as it conceals the blemishes on the skin that offers light sheer coverage. It is meant to hydrate, illuminate, protect and mattify the skin.
Benefits of BB Cream
BB Cream has ingredients that are often used in skin care products. It may vary from different brands, but most BB Creams have ingredients like:
- skin protectants: vitamins, antioxidants
- moisturisers: hyaluronic acid, glycerin, panthenol, ceramides
- mineral SPF: titanium dioxide, zinc oxide
- brighteners: niacinamide, licorice root
- skin firming agents: peptides, hydrolysed collaged

How to Use BB Cream
BB Cream can be pretty easy to use with just your fingertips to blend or the right tools. To get seamless coverage, use your fingertips or blending sponge to blend the product onto your skin. But if you need more coverage, brushes are more preferable to be used. Just a pea size of BB Cream may help in giving the coverage all over your face.
To get the best results of our BB Cream, we strongly recommend you to pair up with All-in-One BB Powder with SPF 15. It prevents your make up from creasing and being caked.
CC Cream is short for colour correcting cream. It is similar to BB Cream, but it usually gives more coverage. It is specifically formulated to colour correct your skin like:
- dark undereye circles
- uneven skin tone
Benefits of CC Cream
It shares almost similar properties with BB Cream. But generally, it focuses on anti-aging properties which help blur the skin imperfections and correct uneven skin tones. If you have dark spots, opt for CC Cream.

The sun protection is also higher which is SPF 25. It helps protect, repair and make your skin look instantly brighter and healthier with youthful complexion. It’s your skin, only better!
- Multimineral Complex: Helps to make the skin more resistant to environmental damage
- Vitamin C: Helps colour correct and brighten the skin
How to Use CC Cream
It works exactly the same like our BB Cream except that the texture is lighter and more easily to spread onto the skin. Here’s a guide for you.
BB Cream vs CC Cream
Now you must be wondering which one is more suitable for you. Let’s go back to the basic foundation of the skin. Firstly, you have to know your skin type; dry or sensitive skin, combination skin, normal skin or oily skin. Once you recognise it, then you will know which product is better for you.
- BB Cream – combination skin, oily skin, normal skin, acne-prone skin
- CC Cream – dry and sensitive skin, combination skin
Our BB Cream provides light coverage and is more mattifying than our CC Cream. On the other hand, CC Cream gives out that dewy radiant finish after a couple of hours of application. So, if you have oily skin, you may want to avoid using CC Cream as it may make your skin too shiny.
If you are finding for skin caring make up, BB Cream and CC Cream are ideal for you. Both products offer natural finish on your skin. They are multipurpose creams which can help simplify your makeup routine especially when you are always on-the-go. Whether you choose BB Cream or CC Cream, we hope that these products help in your daily life because they are indeed a HOLY GRAIL!
