Do you know your BB Cream from your CC and DD?

It’s that time of year when we should be basking in the sun…sadly it’s a little cold for us (even on the Hampshire South Coast (PO and SO postcodes) where I’m based!) but this doesn’t mean we should be neglecting the skin on our face.

Hydrating and nourishing are key to looking fresh faced and flawless under our makeup.

BB cream has become very popular over the last year… and now we are hearing about CC cream and more recently the announcement of a new DD cream!

But, do we know the difference?

BB cream offers some coverage to the face and is lighter than foundation but heavier than tinted moisturiser plus primer with SPF benefits.

CC cream covers the above but also all day long anti-ageing skin treatment that corrects uneven skin tone and redness. It’s normally a lightweight formula that gives a dewy look to the skin.

And now DD cream! This will be launched as a ‘Dynamic Do All’ cream for body, which I can imagine will be beneficial to those of us who just love to try anything to make our skin feel soft and radiant.

The only drawback? There are less choice of colours for the BB and CC creams so be careful when choosing your shade. But as the weather warms up and we find we need coverage but don’t want to be using anything heavier, the CC cream is definitely worth having in your make up bag! It will definitely be in mine…

Enjoy experimenting with these creams and roll on the summer!
