While it initially seemed like CC creams would be a short-lived fad, top skincare brands are proving that this product is more versatile than we thought.
It looks like no brand is getting bored of seeing what else they can fit into a single tube of tinted moisturizer, and there are several standout new products in the CC category this summer.
Coming this July, Dr. Dennis Gross launches his version: Daily Essentials CC Cream SPF 18. This is a tinted moisturizer that combines broad-spectrum SPF with hydration and coverage. Some of the same anti-aging and antioxidant ingredients as you see in the rest of his skincare line were included in this product to treat your skin all day as you wear it.
Switching gears now, here’s another (entirely different) take on CC Cream from Japanese cult brand AMOREPACIFIC that I’m completely obsessed with. Their Color Control Cushion Compact (available now) is a sheer liquid foundation with SPF 50 and a host of skincare ingredients.
The product comes in pretty unique packaging: The compact contains a sponge saturated with the liquid CC cream, as well as a separate puff to use for applying it. And here’s a cool bonus: When there’s no more liquid in the sponge, just pop in the refill that comes with the product!
The AMOREPACIFIC Color Control Cushion Compact is available in 4 shades, and feels weightless on your skin, while making it look poreless, even, and protecting it from the sun. What could be better? This is one multitasking product you’ll always want to carry in your bag.
Finally, though not a CC cream per se, Keratin Complex launched the first BB cream for hair with its new Kerabalm 3-in-1 Multi-Benefit Hair Balm.
The product goes on like a leave-in cream to smooth the cuticle (goodbye frizz!), repel humidity, and add shine. Even those of us who don’t get Keratin treatments at the salon can benefit from products that contain this strengthening ingredient.
We’ve been treating our faces to BB and CC creams, so why not our hair?
