Have you been wondering what the difference is between a BB Cream and a CC Cream? To be honest, it’s pretty much the same. However, there are slight differences and certain brands really make it to the top list. CC Cream stands for Colour Correct while BB stands for Beaty Balm. Either way they are both glorified formulas of the simple tinted moisturisers that we used to see on the beauty shelves.

Here’s our top list of CC and BB Creams.
