So, what’s a CC cream? Born and developed in Korea, CC creams are the next generation of BB creams or Beauty Balms, which marry sheer coverage and skincare benefits together in one formula. CC creams take these key benefits to the next level by delivering more coverage and skincare benefits in a multi-tasking solution.
The new Max Factor CC Cream aims to provide intense complexion correction immediately on application, to create a healthy, natural-looking skin statement.
What does the CC cream consist of?
As BB creams took the world by storm, reviews the world over showed that consumers were left confused as to how to use the formulas to achieve the very best complexion enhancing results.
To save on stress, Samira Olfat, Max Factor Regional Make-up Artist, brings you the Max Factor CC Master Class, providing the optimum application method to bring on the glow in 4 simple steps:
1. Squeeze a small amount onto your fingertips, and rub them together lightly in a circular motion; this warms the product allowing for easier application.
2. Start the application from under your eyes and from the corners of your nose and spread the product out towards your hair line. By doing this you deposit the majority of the CC cream on the areas that need cover most coverage, then it blends seamlessly into the rest of your complexion.
3. If your neck is slightly lighter, bring the CC cream down until the tone of your face matches with your body.
4. If you need further coverage, dab extra product onto problem areas with your finger or brush. The CC cream will layer up until you get the coverage you require.
A quick, swift application works best with a CC cream. You don’t need to fuss and over-blend the formula, as it connects very easily with your skin.

Hi, if you really want to know what is a CC Cream we have to come back to its origin. It was already created 3 years by Miss Singapore and it become a major trend today in the cosmetic industry. All big brands are now copying her idea.
Here is her story (information taken from the website http://www.rachelkcosmetics.com):
“Rachel Kum’s passion for all things creative and natural has been a lifelong commitment. From an early age, she was entranced by make-up for simply being fun in its ability to change the face with color. Growing up, her love of nature, beauty and especially cosmetics made this a focus of her personal expression. Before winning the Miss Singapore Universe title in 2009, Rachel’s road to her good skin and makeup did not come easy. Her own experience with skin and makeup and working with women whose careers depended on good complexion has allowed her to see how skin image not only threatens careers but can also destroy self confidence. This has led her to devote two years to researching, testing and refining mineral makeup. As every woman knows good texture, even coverage and comfortable skin interaction are the chief ingredients in identifying a good brand of makeup, Rachel believes she has found the optimal product in her Rachel K cosmetics range.
The accolades come as no surprise as it took 2 years of groundbreaking research and testing in state-of-the-art cosmetic laboratories in USA, Korea and Japan, with a team of leading cosmetologists, dermatologists and make-up artists to produce this highly refined CC cream and its line of supporting products. Testament to its efficacy is the fact that the majority of the buzz around this cream has been generated not through a multi-million dollar campaign, but by word-of-mouth”.
