Best BB Cream vs CC Cream Options for Redheads

Which One is Right for Your Skin?

They often provide more skin benefits than traditional foundation and range in coverage and finish. These two types of face makeup are similar, but not the same.

BB cream stands for: Beauty or Blemish Balm. These products are used with the intent of targeting a skin concern like uneven skin tone or blemishes.
