Want to learn more about the alphabet soup of BB, CC, and DD creams? Check out my quotes on www.theitgirl.com
BB, CC and now DD creams…what is the deal?!
- BB cream was first used by a dermatologist in Germany to help patients after surgery. The purpose of BB cream is to hydrate and smooth the skin, and it may contain tint and sunscreen.
- CC cream is marketed as a concealer to even out skin tones and hydrate the skin.
- DD cream is supposed to hydrate and have anti-aging properties.
The main ingredient in all of these is water. As you can see, there are differences when it comes to marketing, but these products are actually very similar.
