For those who have the habit of applying makeup frequently, you know that, in addition to applying makeup, it is
also necessary to have a series of skin care, and one of the cosmetics that unites care while making up
the skin is creams (BB ,CC, DD and EE), since they appeared in the beauty industry it has been a great
success among women and is still one of the essential items in the make-up bag, but with 4 options available
you still don’t know the difference between them? So, keep reading to find out what the differences are and
which one is best for your skin.
Beauty balm or blemish balm is the true meaning of a BB cream. Original from Germany, it is a multifunctional beauty item and combines primer, sunscreen, moisturizer and foundation in a single product, that is, it does not require the use of other products. BB cream helps to eliminate fine lines, reduce pores, regenerates, protects, and prepares the skin before makeup, however, it has a lighter coverage compared to foundation that has more intense coverage. If you are looking for a milder product to use during the day, BB may be the ideal choice.
Complete Correction Cream is the true name of the beloved CC cream, just like BB it has the same
functions but its big difference from the previous product is in the color, it has color that helps to disguise
the lines of imperfections and keep the skin hydrated for longer, other advantages of it are that the texture
is much lighter and that it fixes better. This is a little better than BB and is great for anyone who needs a more
effective cosmetic to correct imperfections.
A more evolved and much more potent version of these creams is the DD cream (Daily Defense Cream) it is
not just a facial product, it is also for body use. In addition to DD cream protecting the skin and preventing premature aging, it also acts as a treatment for existing skin problems. For those who are used to doing artificial tanning on the skin, this cosmetic can be a real ally, as it gives color while moisturizing and protecting. The union of everything in BB and CC cream is in DD cream much more effectively.
If you expected EE cream to be the best cream ever, know you were wrong. Going on a completely opposite
path from other versions of these cosmetics already created, EE cream does not have the function of disguising imperfections and protecting the skin, its main function is to make a deep cleansing of impurities, after all EE cream means Extra Exfoliation. With mousse texture, natural ingredients, EE exfoliates the skin and leaves the face much cleaner and smoother, it is very effective to remove makeup residues and dead cells, the skin will be completely clean, without oiliness and the exfoliation will be done smoothly.
