Best In Beauty: CC Cream


After last year’s BB cream craze, we upgraded to CC creams, which stands for colour or complexion correcting creams. This advanced technology hails from Asia and offers a whole host of benefits to the skin such as brightening, reducing dark spots, and removing redness.

On top of that, they conceal imperfections and add a sheer tint to complexions. Sounds good, right? Here are our absolute favourites…
