Is anyone else confused about “BB” and “CC”?! I was. What is the difference between these popular must-have creams and which one should we choose?!
Well, I did some research and found that while BB cream provides tinted coverage and adds some other benefits for the skin like a good SPF and anti oxidants, a CC cream is color correcting and usually lighter, more airy, than BB cream. A good CC cream is actually an improved BB cream, some people claim, especially when they also have the added benefits a BB cream has. It’s less heavy and “foundation-like” than the BB cream.
Origins now has a great CC cream (SPF 20, great for the new season) and Samia has tried it. It’s called “Smarty Plants” (Origins is all natural, great stuff) and is really comfortable on the skin. It comes in two colors and it’s just amazing. They also have a super lotion and facial oil, all in the same series.
Samia really love the lotion because it has this milky texture that leave your face at ease right before applying your day or night cream.
I think we will be hooked…!
