BB Creams and CC Creams

BB Creams

BB is short for "blemish or beauty balms". It has the anti-aging formulas combine the hydration of a moisturizer with the coverage of a foundation. They treat all kinds of concerns (like fine lines and wrinkles, dullness, and oiliness), offer SPF protection, act as a primer for makeup, cover minor blemishes and even out your skin tone. 

CC Creams

CC is short for "color and care" or "color and correct", CC creams are essentially BB creams on steroids. They're designed to offer more coverage than BB creams but still go on sheer, they moisturize better, and they contain hard-core anti-aging ingredients.

What do you think? BB or CC Creams?
