Skincare Makeup

Many professional lines of skincare makeup have launched their own BB creams, CC creams, DD creams and even EE creams.  In this article we explore if these multi-faceted creams offer more than a simplified all-in-one product solution by combining skincare and cosmetics.

Skincare Makeup
BB creams –
also called Beauty Balm and Blemish Balm
Designed to be an all-in-one primer, foundation (with more coverage that a tinted moisturizer) and moisturizer.

Some BB creams also offer SPF cover however as they generally do not have high concentrations of anti-aging ingredients they should not replace other anti-aging serums and creams.

If you have oily skin, BB cream can be used on its own.

For normal to dry skin, BB cream can be sued over a serum or moisturizer.

For acne skin, some BB creams have ingredients that can assist in treating acne.

CC creams – also called Color Corrective and Complexion Correcting cream
Offering all the same functions as with BB creams with more foundation cover.
The color correction ability makes CC creams ideal for anyone wanting to even-out skin pigmentation or redness.

DD creams  – also called Daily Defence and Dynamic Do All cream.
These creams usually have a higher SPF and ingredients to protect the skin barrier and prevent moisture loss. Originally created as a body moisturizing cream to target dry areas such as feet, knees and elbows. Recent DD creams combine the properties of BB and CC creams plus anti-aging, firming, mattifying and effective nourishing properties.

EE creams – also called Extra Exfoliating, Energy Enhancing, Even Effect cream
The newest ‘double-letter’ cream on our beauty shelves, establishing itself as a skin illuminator and transformer.  If your skin needs a pick-me-up, feels lack lustre or if dark spots, uneven skin tone and texture needs correcting, this latest generation of creams could minimize these skin concerns and more.

Whether BB and CC creams will replace makeup products such as traditional foundations is still uncertain. Perhaps consumers will decide once BB and CC creams offer the same array of shades as a foundation so a more accurate color match can be achieved.

However, if the attraction of these new breed of products continues to grow in popularity because of their multi-functionality: they moisturize, offer foundation coverage, sun protection, anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits too, these all in one easy to use formulations will expand offering consumers greater choice in skincare makeup on our beauty shelves.
