Moisturizing, unifying and enriched with ingredients beneficial to the skin, BB, CC and DD creams combine the benefits of skin care products and makeup. Each has its own virtues and targets different needs for a flawless complexion.
BB: beauty balm
What is BB cream? The "BB" stands for "Beauty Balm". Considering all the attention that BB cream gets, it truly is a 3-in-1 facial product that promises to even out and correct skin tone while providing a radiant glow. The perfect mix of makeup and skin care!
Initially used by Korean women to heal scars caused by laser surgery, BB cream is now used for beauty purposes around the world. It is the ideal facial cosmetic product for those who don’t want to use heavy foundation and prefer a more natural look.

CC: colour corrector
While CC creams sometimes provide less coverage than BB creams, they are still more effective in correcting skin imperfections thanks to their various colours. They are ideal for people with skin redness or blemishes. Some CC creams are formulated with a green hue to neutralize redness, while others are peach coloured to restore radiance to dull complexions. With their lighter texture, they can be used as a makeup base.

DD: daily defense
DD creams are hybrid products that often provide better coverage than BB creams and more skin benefits than CC creams. Rich in antioxidants, they mainly serve to protect the skin. They form a shield against harsh environmental factors and protect the skin from UV rays and pollution. Opt for formulas with sun protection for city dwellers.
