BB or CC cream: which one should you choose?

Both are "intelligent" complexion products that enhance your skin, but they have different properties. Find out which one is best for you with our guide, made in Provence!

BB CREAMS

Conceal imperfections and correct the complexion

Shade

Different shades, to provide perfect coverage that matches your skin tone.


Foundation

BB creams provide optimum coverage and conceal imperfections, without the use of foundation. If you're looking for more sophisticated results, you can use your BB cream as a make-up base.


Sun protection

With its SPF 30, the L'Occitane Precious BB Cream helps protect your skin from the sun.

CC creams

For a beautifully natural complexion: fresh, radiant and even-toned

Shade

CC creams contain pigments that transform on contact with the skin, to adapt to your natural skin tone.   


Foundation

The pigments in CC creams even out skin tone. For natural-looking results, the CC cream is all you need. For more sophisticated results, you can use your CC cream as a blur-effect make-up base. Foundation will be easier to apply! 


Sun protection

L'Occitane Peony CC Cream offers SPF 20 sun protection.

Five questions to help you choose

What about oily skin ?

BB and CC creams are ideal for oily skin

They conceal imperfections (BB), even out skin tone (CC) and are non-comedogenic – which means they don't block pores!

Peony CC Cream offers a "fresh complexion" effect, which is perfect for oily skin.

And if you're looking for an ultra-matte finish, apply your BB or CC cream first, then simply dust a fine layer of loose powder on top!
