A lot of brands are brining out their version of CC Creams this Spring, including luxury brands like Armani, Bobbi Brown and YSL.
CC stands for colour correction but how do the brands describe their new releases?
“A color-correcting cream boosted with SPF 35 by Bobbi Brown takes a three-step approach to evening out skin, with pigments that correct sallowness, redness and dullness; light diffusers that blur imperfections and illuminate skin; and brightening botanicals that even out skin over time. An addition of SPF 35 keeps you protected from harmful UVA/UVB rays and prevents future signs of dark spots.”
There are three shades to choose from: Pale Nude, Warm Nude and Golden Nude
