A little bit of history
BB cream was introduced in 2011. Short for Beauty Balm or Blemish Balm, it’s a tinted moisturizer with broad-spectrum SPF which delivers anti-aging ingredients while hydrating the skin. It was initially developed by a German dermatologist who wanted one cream to protect the skin and provide coverage. Women LOVED this cream that took the place of multiple products and gave them some coverage all at the same time. Essentially like a lighter foundation with a few skin care benefits thrown in. Overall complaints were that it wasn’t as moisturizing as they would have liked AND it was thick and heavy.
When CC cream was introduced – women naturally jumped on board – the CC stands for color correcting which addresses redness, ruddiness of the skin. It is much lighter than the BB cream, a more natural coverage with benefits of sun protection thrown in.
Color Correcting Tinted Moisturizer
SeneGence, took both of these concepts – and created what we lovingly refer to as CCTM (color correcting tinted moisturizer). It is a tinted moisturizer with a mechanical shield (SPF 15 equivalent), so lightweight – I often forget I have anything on, and full on color correcting – it actually has some of our green concealer in it which is AMAZING at getting out any redness or ruddiness in skin. Not to mention the skin care benefits – have you HEARD about SenePlex complex? READ MORE.
Our CCTM is so moisturizing, I have many customers that use it as their daily mosturizer! Foundation can be applied on top of it – but it’s not a necessity. I have multiple customers who wear CCTM all by itself every day. (I do it myself mult. times each week!) Once you start using our skincare – you’ll see . . . how amazing the SenePlex Complex is. Just look at those stats!!
CCTM comes in 3 shades: Light and Medium and Deep. The craziest thing is that it totally adapts to your pH. I am as white as they come – I got teased growing up that I was Casper the ghost and my foundation color is almost always porcelain. (I know, TMI!) However, I can wear the medium OR the light. They both fully adapt to my skin and you wouldn’t even know they were there – totally natural. When I was working in Chicago during Chicago Fashion Week last year – many of my models were African American and the medium would adapt to their skin just fine. It really is incredible stuff.
My advice – if you are waffling between which one to start with – GET THE MEDIUM!! It is a perfect addition for someone who doesn’t typically wear makeup AND for someone who LOVES makeup and uses it everyday. Protects your skin AND does all those amazing things listed in the picture. AWESOME!!
