Today I would love to introduce you all to the current raging product the BB and the CC creams. I am sure most of you have used these creams by now but some of you might still be struggling to find the exact BB or CC cream that suits you perfectly. So I thought of quickly doing a Top 10 article on BB and CC creams which will let you know the current prices and the shades available in different brands.
But before we start, let us understand what does a BB and CC cream mean-
BB cream stands for Blemish Balm or Beauty Balm. BB creams come in a variety of formulations and it is a combination of a moisturizer, sunblock, primer and foundation. BB cream is a like a tinted moisturizer which gives you natural look by moisturizing your skin as well as evening out your skin tone.
CC cream stands for Correction Cream or Colour Correcting cream. Along with all the properties of a BB cream, a CC cream is a better in coverage and conceals the dark spots or redness in skin tone evenly. They are lighter in coverage than foundation but heavier than the tinted moisturizers.
Honestly, I do not find much difference in just BB and CC creams as I personally think it varies a lot from one brand to another. Also, I would like to mention that this Top 10 list is in a random order and includes BB and CC creams which cost less than 1000 Rs. The price mentioned for each product is the current as on date price which is subject to change sooner or later. So here goes the list of the Top 10 BB and CC creams.
