When it comes to determining the difference between these face balms the difference is in what they offer, some hydration and other Skincare benefits, others coverage and some everything in between.
BB Creams, or Beauty Balms, are a light to medium coverage base with added SPF and antioxidant protection. They were the first “makeup with skincare benefits” product to hit the shelves moisturising and protecting the skin whilst providing your daily coverage.
CC creams build on top of this by adding in colour correcting technology providing all the benefits of a BB cream alongside the ability to camouflage uneven skin tone.
CC Creams are currently the most bang for your buck when it comes to the light-weight, all in one complexion product game.
The first in the lightweight skincare come makeup base genre, tinted moisturisers do just what they say, hydrate the skin whilst providing some pigment to lightly cover the skin.
Some products can offer more skincare benefits such as anti-aging properties or protective antioxidants, blurring th more with the BB Cream category however so don’t discount them on your next trip to the cosmetics aisle!
