If you’ve heard of BB cream – blemish balm, blemish base, beauty balm or beblesh balm – then you can consider CC cream to be the next generation in beauty. CC creams are also known as Color Control cream.

The DL on the CC
I’ve been using this cream as I would a tinted moisturizer every morning over my anti-wrinkle serum for a few months. I like that it dries weightless, as if I’m not wearing any makeup – as any good product should. I can’t say if my surface cell turnover has been improved, but my skin does look more radiant after I apply the CC cream. I have to believe their claim that it strengthens my skin’s natural defense against moisture loss because up here in the North East, it is cold and dry, but my skin isn’t.
I have used MAC and Peter Thomas Roth’s tinted moisturizers. When comparing this drugstore brand, I think it really stands up against the high end names very well.
Pros to Oil of Olay’s CC Cream:
- SPF 15
- Blends easily into my skin
- Gives a nice finish without powder
- Very moisturizing
- Price – $17.99-23.99
- If you’re used to more coverage from your foundation, then this might be too sheer for you.
