The 4 BB and CC Creams Our Editors Swear ByMay 11, 2022
BB and CC creams are all-in-one complexion products that usually offer skincare benefits such as sun protection and long-lasting hydration. They’re also super versatile, with lightweight formulas that are perfect for no-makeup makeup looks and full-coverage options for glam ones. If you’re looking to ditch your foundation for a makeup-meets-skincare product, these are our favorite BB and CC creams to try.
Glowy CC Cream
IT Cosmetics CC+ Nude Glow Lightweight Foundation
This glow-boosting formula acts as a color-correcting foundation, skin-loving serum and a sunscreen. Infused with niacinamide, hyaluronic acid and green tea extract, it imparts a healthy-looking glow while keeping skin soft and hydrated.
4-in-1 BB Cream
Maybelline New York Instant Perfector Glow
Simplify your makeup routine with this four-in-one skin perfector. Acting as a primer, concealer, highlighter and BB cream, this product evens out skin tone, highlights and conceals on the go thanks to the built-in sponge applicator.
Full Coverage CC Cream
Dermablend Continuous Correction CC Cream SPF 50+
This CC cream doesn’t just cover up your imperfections — it actually helps to correct them too. With continued use, this full-coverage foundation cream works to reduce the appearance of age spots, discoloration, hyperpigmentation, dark spots and redness and provides protection from UV rays with the SPF 50-infused formula.
Blurring CC Cream
Thrive Causemetics Buildable Blur CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 35
Most BB and CC creams admittedly don’t have very extensive shade ranges, but this one offers 18 shades to match a variety of skin tones. The formula is infused with vitamin C to brighten your complexion, even out skin tone and fight against environmental aggressors. Plus it features a blurring technology to reduce the appearance of large pores, fine lines and uneven texture.
