Let me break it down for you: A CC cream, a.k.a. Color-Correcting cream, has more pigment than your BB (blemish or beauty balm). It is targeted at those women looking to hide skin tone unevenness, redness, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation. Just like the BB before it, CC cream provides sun protection, hydration, and treatment benefits in one handy-dandy cream.
Now that you know what it is, let me introduce you to Lumene CC Color Correcting Cream. Representing the latest technology, this unique 6-in-1 foundation is light and yet it provides good coverage. It spreads evenly, following all contours of your skin, smoothing out uneven skin color while providing a SPF of 20. Redness is minimized, resulting in semi-matte, flawless and even-looking skin. Your skin will feel fresh and light, and you can trust that your makeup will stay on all day. It’s a BB Cream on steroids.
Lumene CC Cream is available in two shades. If you are unsure of which one to choose, go with the darker option. A little goes a long way, so it works best patted on just where you need it. But boy, does it cover blotchy areas — and it stays put for hours. Available at CVS $14.99
