The best CC creams to help conceal, correct and even out skin tone

Because sometimes you want something a little more sheer. Nab yourself one of the best CC creams on the market right now and enjoy flawless looking skin without the weight of foundation

Finding the best complexion product can be tricky. The waters have become somewhat muddied. Do you opt for a foundation, a tinted moisturiser or a BB/CC/DD cream? It’s complicated. You’ve no doubt heard about the best BB cream (a.k.a blemish balms, which help to treat whilst giving you smooth coverage) and you might have come across the lesser known DD cream. But this is all about the wonder that is the CC cream, also known as a complexion corrector or colour control.

We love them, not only because they create the most insane clear canvas for the rest of your make-up, but because in warmer months we much prefer the lighter coverage. If you’re worried about replacing your best foundation, because you’re concerned it won’t be a good enough alternative, think again. The best CC cream evens everything out, rather than covering your skin because the formulation cleverly counteracts any discolouration. So if suffer from any annoying redness – perhaps from Rosacea or irritation – dullness or sallowness, a CC cream will help neutralise, all the while letting the natural look of your skin come through. In terms of coverage it sits somewhere in between a tinted moisturiser and a foundation. The result? You basically look like you’ve been blessed with a flawless complexion. Which is really no bad thing is it?

If that wasn’t enough, in many of them you’ll find a whole host of skin loving vitamins, a selection of plumping peptides and potent radiance-boosting complexes. CC creams have you covered, literally.

There are two CC creams on our list that are standout, mainly because they have their own cult following that can’t be ignored. Both IT Cosmetic and Erborian have bestselling, award winning formulas that people are so loyal too they regularly sell out at retailers.
