Multitasking Beauty Products

Although I tend to be pretty much a low-maintenance person when it comes to make up and beauty products, I must proclaim my love for products which perform more than one function and allow you to save time and money.

Therefore I was really happy when I found out recently that the popular BB cream was to welcome its successor, the CC cream, in the coming months. As many of you may know, the BB cream stands for Blemish Balm cream and acts as both -  a foundation and a face cream with a sun protection factor (SPF). Many brands jumped on the BB cream bandwagon due to its huge commercial success about a year ago. Now, the leaders of the beauty products industry are taking one more step forward by creating the Colour/Complexion Correction cream, which is affectionately called the CC cream.

What's new about this 'all in one' beauty product? It combines even more benefits for your skin. In  addition to the BB cream's function as a tinted cover-up for troubled skin, the CC cream will also include anti-ageing ingredients as well as foundation pigments and SPF. The new anti-ageing properties of the cream make it a must have product for women of all ages. Why? Because a recent research study found that French women looked on average 7 years younger due to the fact that they start using anti-ageing creams when they reach 15-20 years. That's five years earlier than British women, who only start using such creams when they see the first signs of ageing after turning 25 years old, which can be a little too late.

If you were wondering when you could get your hands on this beauty miracle, the first CC cream is rumoured to be launched next month (April 2013) by Olay at a price of about £25-30. It seems like a pretty good deal for a multitasker like myself.

Until next time,
