What Is The Difference Between BB, CC, & DD Creams

Sometimes when finding the right makeup to use, it can feel like you’re lost in a sea of alphabet creams. Chances are you’ve heard of BB, CC, and/or DD cream, but you might not know the difference between the three.

For starters, all of the creams are foundations and promise ample coverage. When it comes to comparing BB, CC, and DD creams, they all offer coverage plus something extra.

BB cream is coverage plus SPF, CC cream is coverage plus color correction, and DD cream is coverage plus anti-aging.

Below are some of the best brands for each kind of cream so you can find the perfect alphabet cream for you:

Herkese merhaba İlk bb kremim diyebilirim. Garnier BB Krem bende ki çok açık ton olanı. Hem kapatıcılığını hem de cilde verdiği ışıl ışıl görüntüyü çok sevdim. Eğer bb kremden cilt tonunuzu eşitlesin hem de kapatıcılık sağlamasını istiyorsanız tercih etmeniz gereken bir ürün. Nemlendirici sürmeden uyguluyorum ürün kendisi nem veriyor zaten. Parmak uçlarımda uyguluyorum bir iki dakikada ürün cildinizle bütünleşiyor. Minik sivilcelerinizi ve kızarıkları güzel şekilde kapatıyor. Teşekkürler @garnierturkiye 💚 İndirimde 10 TL kadar düşüyor @gratistr mağazalarına bakmayı unutmayın . . . . . #SeninkiHangisi#ÇantamdanAyırmam #bbcream #l4l#tagsforlikes#mylife#garnierbb#garnierbbcream#makyaj#makeup#makeuptutorial#makeuponfleek

Our luxurious Black Label Detox BB has been reviewed more than 1,000x on Sephora.com! 🙋♀ We kinda love this one… “⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ hey bb, how you doin – ⠀ I have an entire drawer full of BB creams, and this one is absolutely the best. I have olive undertones, and most BB creams are entirely too pink for my skin. I look like a bad 80's video, minus the teased hair. This one has great coverage without feeling too heavy or greasy. It doesn't break me out or irritate my sensitive skin. It blends easily. It has become my daily, even replacing the need for a proper foundation. Long lasting without needing to worry about transfer to clothes.” @Sephora fan MarcelineVV⠀ #drjart #skincare #sephora #닥터자르트 ⠀ 📷 @goddess.com.ua ⠀
