CC Cream: Our Favourite Skin Perfectors

CC creams have hit the beauty industry as hard BB creams did, so make sure you have atleast one in your make-up bag! They have all the benefits of a BB cream (a multi-purpose tinted moisturiser and a make-up primer with anti-ageing technology), plus the added bonus of colour correcting (hence the ‘CC‘). Where BB creams give you a semi-sheer coverage, CC creams give you the coverage of a foundation, but still feel super light on your skin!

These super-powered creams tick every box – moisturisation, SPF, wrinkle reduction, a radiance boost, amazing coverage and an even skintone. For flawless coverage, try MAC Prep + Prime CC Cream, £25, LA Roche Posay Complete Correction Cream, £19.50 is another one of our faves – it boasts an impressive SPF30 and is great for giving dry skin a little TLC. Darphin CC Cream, £32 is perfect for giving tired-looking skin an overhaul, it will give dull skin a radiance shot. Chanel Correction Complete SPF 50, £44 is probably our number one. It gives flawless yet light coverage, a little prime, and has the saftey of SPF 50 to keep the wrinkles and sunburn at bay! So if you fancy getting a model-worthy complexion, you’d better jump on the CC cream bandwagon now! Here are our faves…
