CC Cream: The Next Generation of Skincare

AA+BB=CC.  Who knew the beauty equation was that simple?  Olay helps us figure out the answer to even skin with their newest innovation, Olay Total Effects Tone Correcting CC Cream.  With blemish balms, better known as BB creams, sending us all into a frenzy over the past couple of months, get ready for the new and improved Color & Correct, or CC Cream to take over your makeup bag.

CC Creams initially began to emerge in Asia as a new beauty category.  This new skincare/makeup hybrid was designed for women who love BB Creams for their ability to provide a quick, flawless finish, but who were seeking skincare solutions that deliver long-term benefits.  Launching late last year, Olay brought the first-ever mass market CC Cream to the United States in October.  CC creams are now the go-to option for many everyday women as well as beauty experts within the industry.  Mayli Hernandez, celebrity makeup artist and model, recommends CC cream as both a personal and professional favorite.  "My preference between BB or CC cream would be CC because it has better coverage and it is not as oily in texture," Mayli says.  Beyond its feel on the skin, CC cream also has some pretty amazing benefits too.   
The Olay Total Effects Tone Correcting CC Cream is packed with beauty payoffs.  Available in three shades, this CC cream treats seven signs of aging, while also providing immediate color correction with tinted formulas that include UV protection for tone correction over time. The multiple instant and long-term benefits leave skin luminous and even-toned with the reduced appearance of discolorations, fine lines and wrinkles.  The two key formula elements?  Niacinamide, which works to hydrate and soften skin while creating a strong moisture barrier, helping to reduce the appearance of red, blotchy skin.  And N-acetyl glucosamine, found to improve the skin's moisture barrier, visibly reducing the appearance of hyperpigmented spots and improving the overall evenness of skintone.

After trying it ourselves, we are sold on CC cream too!  Retailing at a price of $21.50, the Olay Total Effects Tone Correcting CC Cream is a definite must-try.  For more information visit
