It was all we could talk about last year — essentially, every woman’s dream. No, we’re not talking about Channing Tatum’s fully exposed rear view in The Vow (although that was Amazefest 2012), but rather, our beloved BB (aka beauty or blemish) cream.
And, while we’re still loving the the complete awesomeness of BB cream, we’re always on the lookout for the next best thing.
So, being that we here are all BBFs, we can’t help but share the joy of a product so spectacular, so thrilling, so life-changing, you might just cry out with a Vicki Gunvalson-style “woo hoo!” What could possibly be so crazy incredible, you ask?
Well ladies, our precious BB cream has unselfishly given birth (and it didn’t even gain a pound, that slut!) to a new breathtaking breed: CC (color and correct) cream.
Yep, just like BB, this new generation of multi-functioning product not only bestows all the benefits of beauty cream (primes, moisturizes, contains SPF, provides a sheer tint), but boasts a couple of added bonuses. Giving coverage similar to foundation, though much, much lighter, CC creams also include anti-aging ingredients like antioxidants and natural skin brighteners like vitamin C (can we get a “hell yeah?!”).
We think you know what this means — just like Katie Holmes going from Tom C. to Jake G. — it’s time for a serious upgrade. Plus, you know what they say: the only thing better than a double B is a double C.
