With all the AA, BB and now CC creams on the market today it’s easy to get confused. So here’s a quick lesson!! AA stands for Anti-Aging typically in a cream or moisturizer. So you will see these on products that help reduce wrinkles, crow’s feet, sagging, help with blemishes, as well as discoloration. AA creams most common ingredients will include retinol, Vitamin C, sunscreen, and anti-oxidants. BB creams are the most common, BB is for beauty balm or blemish base. Think of your BB cream as a foundation that works as a concealer, a good BB cream removes the need for a primer and concealer. Now to CC creams, the CC stands for color control cream. The CC cream is supposed to help with color correction and skin tones. They are different in that CC creams are created to help with current existing skin problems where as BB creams are essentially to prevent skin problems. CC creams still have all the wonderful ingredients that BB creams have; they just offer a little come thing extra.
I’ve tried a few CC creams this past year, but unfortunately none of them wowed me. A few weeks ago a good friend and fellow Organic/Eco conscious consumer Tiffany Paige invited me to the Green Beauty LA event where I had the pleasure of meeting the ladies behind Juice Beauty. The line offers a number of excellent organic choices for skin care, make up and hair!! One of their new products really stood out to me, the Stem Cellular CC Cream. Juice Beauty’s CC cream is ideal for all skin types, it increases cellular turnover, offers broad spectrum sun protection with mineral SPF 30, evens skin tone, firms and improves elasticity and creates a radiant completion.
Something thats very important to me is whats in my beauty products, our skin is our largest organ, so what you’re putting on your body you’re actually putting in your body, think about that for a moment… I love that Juice Beauty uses no artificial dyes, parabens, petroleum, propylene or butylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfates, pesticides, phthalates or synthetic fragrances. And lastly Juice Beauty is cruelty free!!
