With so many benefits, can the CC cream replace all other skin products? The answer is not an easy yes or no. The product promises to be effective as a day cream and can function well as a make-up base. However, products providing intense solution for specific skincare needs remain just as imperative. While CC creams can be worn under make-up the traditional foundation may still be necessary to achieve that highly polished and finished look. Daniel says, “The CC cream is not make-up and it’s definitely not a foundation — it’s a skin styling cream. It is skincare with a hint of make-up.” It’s also important for brands to diversify the product, in terms of shades to suit a wide range of complexions. Even as CC creams gain popularity, skincare brands are already developing the more advanced DD creams to counter its deficiencies.
