What is the difference between BB cream and CC Cream


In the ever-evolving world of beauty and skincare, the choices seem endless, and the terminology can sometimes be bewildering. One of the recurring debates in the makeup aisle revolves around BB cream versus CC cream. Are they interchangeable? What sets them apart? Which is superior? In this comprehensive exploration, we will unravel the mysteries of BB cream and CC cream, exploring their differences, benefits, and the best ways to incorporate them into your daily makeup routine, with a special emphasis on two exceptional products—Spawake’s Moisture Glow BB Cream and Spawake CC Cream.

What is a BB Cream and a CC Cream?

BB cream, short for “blemish balm” or “beauty balm,” and CC cream, standing for “colour-correcting” or “complexion corrector,” are versatile products that have gained immense popularity for their multitasking capabilities. Both products aim to streamline your beauty routine by combining skincare and makeup benefits into a single application, and in this context, Spawake’s Moisture Glow BB Cream and Spawake CC Cream stand out as excellent options.

Difference between BB Cream and CC Cream

The primary distinction lies in their intended purpose. Spawake’s Moisture Glow BB Cream focuses on providing natural coverage with added skincare benefits, such as the infusion of sea minerals and Vitamin B6, while Spawake CC Cream is designed for colour correction with oil-absorbing powder for a long-lasting matte finish. To delve deeper, let’s explore the key differences in coverage and finish.

Key Differences in coverage and finish

Spawake’s Moisture Glow BB Cream typically offers lighter coverage compared to Spawake CC Cream. It aims to even out the skin tone, cover minor imperfections, and create a natural, dewy finish. On the other hand, Spawake CC Cream is formulated to address colour-related issues, such as redness or uneven pigmentation, providing more substantial coverage with a matte finish that lasts throughout the day.

Skincare benefits of BB Cream

Beyond coverage, Spawake’s Moisture Glow BB Cream often incorporates skincare elements. The inclusion of sea minerals and Vitamin B6 not only contributes to a lightweight texture and natural coverage but also provides a nourishing and protective layer for the skin. This, combined with the SPF 27/PA+++, ensures not only an instant beautifying effect but also long-term skincare benefits.

Coverage and colour-correcting with CC Cream

Spawake CC Cream takes a different approach by focusing on colour correction. With its SPF 32/PA++ and oil-absorbing powder, it addresses specific concerns like redness or sallowness, offering robust sun protection and a long-lasting matte finish. This makes Spawake CC Cream an excellent choice for those seeking a more polished look while tackling complexion-related issues.

Ingredients in BB and CC Creams

Understanding the ingredients in these creams is vital for making an informed decision based on your skin’s unique needs. Spawake’s Moisture Glow BB Cream, enriched with sea minerals and Vitamin B6, provides a lightweight texture with natural coverage. In comparison, Spawake CC Cream  caters to a different set of concerns. It is a complete complexion cream that contains colour-correcting pigments, along with sun protection of  SPF 32/PA++ and oil-absorbing components, resulting in a flawless matte finish.

Choosing the right product for your skin type

When deciding between Spawake’s Moisture Glow BB Cream and Spawake CC Cream, it’s essential to consider your skin type and specific concerns. If you’re looking for a natural, radiant look with added skincare benefits, Spawake’s Moisture Glow BB Cream might be your go-to. On the other hand, if colour correction and a matte finish are your priorities, Spawake CC Cream is likely the better choice.

How to incorporate BB and CC creams into your makeup routine

Now that we’ve unravelled the differences between BB and CC creams, let’s explore how to seamlessly incorporate Spawake’s Moisture Glow BB Cream and Spawake CC Cream into your daily makeup routine. Begin with a clean, moisturized face. Apply the chosen cream using your fingertips, a makeup sponge, or a brush, ensuring an even and well-blended application. Feel free to layer additional products like concealer or powder based on your desired level of coverage.


Between the choice of BB cream versus CC cream, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer. The choice ultimately depends on your preferences, skin type, and specific concerns. Spawake’s Moisture Glow BB Cream and Spawake CC Cream offer unique solutions catering to different needs. Armed with the knowledge of their differences and benefits, you can confidently navigate the beauty aisle and tailor your makeup routine to achieve the flawless look you desire. Whether you opt for the lightweight elegance of Spawake’s Moisture Glow BB Cream or the colour-correcting prowess of Spawake CC Cream, one thing is certain: your beauty routine just got a whole lot more exciting.
