CC or BB?

I have been asking the same question since CC creams were introduced – CC or BB? A CC cream is a color correcting cream, that it is a brightening primer, foundation, moisturizer, SPF and anti-aging cream packed into one. Suitable for skin types that need more finished / even look, that reduce the appearance of irregularities in the skin tone. They do offer more coverage, than a BB (beauty brightening) and are oil free too, therefore perfect for Oily skin or combination skin.

BB creams are usually light coverage, that offer an even coverage and are loaded with hydrators to give you a dewy / luminous look. Therefore, are perfect for dry to normal skin and not so recommended for an oily or acne prone skin. I tried this SeaSoul HD Finish CC Cream, which came in a light shade and that offered me medium coverage, of acne spots on my skin. It sure was better than a BB cream’s coverage.

What I like about SeaSoul HD Finish CC Cream?

  • It has a herbal fragrance which is mild and vanishes after a few minutes
  • It’s soft creamy texture helps spread easily on the skin.
  • Medium coverage and hides minor imperfections like light blemishes & acne spots. It won’t help if you have age spots or hyper-pigmented skin.
  • Doesn’t look cakey even after application of 2 layers, it doesn’t clog your pores as well.
  • SeaSoul CC cream has a semi-matte finish and stays on my face for a good 5-6 hours.
  • Comes with SPF20 protection
  • It is enriched with Dead Sea Minerals and Moroccan Argan oil.
  • It is free from Parabens, Sulphates, Phosphates & Formaldehyde, Petrochemicals & Phthalates.

What I don’t like is:

  • Limited Availability
  • Pricey – at INR 625 for a 30ml tube

Bottom Line:

Overall SeaSoul HD Finish CC cream is a decent product that gives sheer coverage and is ideal for daily wear. It doesn’t feel heavy on the skin and is enriched with Dead Sea Minerals. Comes with SPF 20 & is free from harmful chemicals. I recommend this CC cream if you are looking for some chemical free product and wouldn’t mind shelling out a few extra bucks.

BB or CC you ask? There is no right answer to this question, It really depends on your skin condition during different seasons. I have a combination skin, and I use both BB & CC for different seasons. There are times when I pick CCs and then apply light makeup directly. I look pale yellow in a CC cream though.  Just pick the right BB or CC that suits your skin type. I’d surely like to hear from you on What you prefer the most – BB or CCs for your skin type?

  1. I just started using CC cream myself this summer since it is so light on the skin. I’ve been using it still during the fall as well. Thanks for sharing this one with us. I will have to give it a try. Have a great weekend.


  2. I haven’t tried CC creams. My favorurite BB cream so far is Garnier. But I think I need to widen my horizon and try CC creams as well.

  3. Nice post. I generally prefer full coverage so BB and CC creams aren’t for me.

  4. I have used both BB and CC creams however I can’t really say which one I prefer more. I hate it when products clog the pores then cause breakouts, good that it doesn’t do that! x

  5. Not sure of BB, CC either. It depends on the products on how they have been formulated. I have tried this CC cream, its great 🙂 Have a great weekend….

  6. I have been using this CC cream for the past some months now and I absolutely love it! I couldn’t agree more with you on this review 🙂

  7. I have no particular choice between the two! There are times when I apply BB and there are times when I have to resort to CC. Its totally dependable!!
    BTW I have the same seasoul CC cream 🙂

  8. I’ve only tried tinted moisturisers & BB creams before, which i tend to love as I like light coverage bases. I would be intrigued to try a CC cream next, you’ve made it sound like something I could get on well with x

  9. Hey nice post! I like your blog, it’s amazing! I love the pictures and your review as well. This CC cream appears to be interesting as its not cackey.

  10. I prefer using Cc cream over BB as they provide better coverage which is a must for my acne prone skin

  11. Great review! I have yet to try both BB & CC creams, just not sure my sensitive skin will like it. But never say never!

  12. Great review, girlie! I only knew that CC creams are great for color correction, which is what I’ve used it for, since I have some red flareups and blemishes. I, however, didn’t know that they’re best suitable for oily skin types, which is what I am; I definitely learned something new in this post, thank you 🙂 This products sounds great and the benefits sure to outweigh the negatives or cons!

    I hope you have a wonderful day and week ahead, beauty!



  13. I normally use BB cream but over the weekend when I was searching for CC cream I noticed there is now DD creams!!! When do the letter creams stop haha!! Cannot keep them straight 🙂

    xoxo Emily

  14. Great review. I usually find BB and CC creams so light and with not so good coverage to wear them on its own, but I have Bobbi Brown CC cream that I use as a primer. It is a great way to use it.

  15. Great post! I’ve always wondered what the difference was between a CC and a BB cream. It seemed like they were well on their way to the ZZ cream at the rate the beauty industry was going.

  16. Nice review! I think I mostly used bb creams as well as tinted moisturizers! I don’t really need thick coverage so I actually like the lightweight ones!

  17. I am having a BB cream right now but am thinking about trying a CC cream as well 🙂

  18. I have never used cc cream before , i have only used bb cream that too ponds 🙂 Nice post !!!

  19. CC creams does works for me and i use bb act as primer for my foundation to give extra coverage. A super post !!

  20. I am not a fan of BB or CC cream, I prefer light tinted moisturising lotion.

  21. I’m not into bb or cc creams but I think these are good option for everyday wear when you don’t want heavy make-up. I don’t know whether these cream do anything good for skin or not.

  22. great post, I’m a huge fan of BB creams 🙂
