CC creams, or “color correct” creams, have all it takes to be a star product in your skincare and make-up routine. No one knows this better than Erborian, the Korean-French brand that’s been perfecting the CC concept over the past few years, and now offers multiple CC creams for different complexion concerns. If you want to know how to select the best Erborian CC cream for you, then keep on reading: we’re about to go through every cream in the range, one by one.
What To Expect From Erborian CC Creams
Erborian CC creams may have a lot of small differences between them–and that’s what makes them so interesting if you have specific concerns–but there’s one thing they have in common: they all contain Centella asiatica. It’s not for nothing that Erborian refers to Centella asiatica as “the super ingredient in the iconic CC cream.” With centuries of evidence in Asian skin care, Centella asiatica (aka “tiger grass”) is a multi-beneficial ingredient. It has soothing and anti-inflammatory properties, promotes firm, supple skin, and even helps prevent the appearance of the first signs of aging.
It’s from this common base that all Erborian CC creams come from–and that’s precisely why they can make such an important contribution to your routine. Let’s get to know them!
Erborian CC Crème High Definition Radiance Cream SPF25
The original CC cream
This best-selling and award-winning CC cream adapts to your skin tone to give you a luminous and radiant finish that looks and feels natural. If all you want from a CC cream is a look that says “my skin but better,” then this is the option for you.
Don’t be alarmed when you see that this cream is actually white, straight out of the tube: you will find that it actually blends perfectly with your skin tone upon application. It is important to note that this cream does not only bring benefits in terms of complexion correction: it also contains Centella asiatica to soothe the skin and improve skin firmness and elasticity, adenosine for an anti-aging action, and vitamin B3 for an antioxidant boost. Finally, and because this is truly a multifunctional product, it’s got SPF25 for added sun protection!
Erborian CC Crème High Definition Radiance Eye Cream SPF20
The CC cream that goes under your eyes
There’s a lot to like in this CC cream, specially designed for the eye area. With a light formula with encapsulated pigments, this cream adapts perfectly to the delicate skin around the eyes. At the same time, it helps to combat some of the main concerns that affect this area: puffiness and dark circles, a dull and lackluster look, of course, fine lines and wrinkles.
What’s also especially interesting about this eye cream is that it comes “equipped” with SPF20. If you’re the kind of person who takes sun protection seriously–and shouldn’t we all be?– then this cream is an amazing choice for your everyday life.
Erborian CC Red Correct SPF25
The best CC cream for redness
As the name suggests, CC creams are all about color correction, and this cream uses the expertise of the color wheel to help you minimize redness–whether associated with sensitivity, irritation, or rosacea. What’s the opposite of red in the color wheel? Green, of course!
With an ultra-fine texture that contains tiny green pigments, this cream neutralizes the appearance of redness to help you reveal a more even complexion, luminous and natural. You can use this product on its own, to replace foundation or tinted moisturizer, or as a makeup primer underneath foundation or concealer, in case you’re looking for heavier coverage. If you struggle with occasional red patches, or just want to neutralize a more widespread red/pink undertone, you might be a match for this CC cream!
Erborian CC Dull Correct SPF25
The best CC cream for dull skin
If the previous product exists to neutralize reddish tones, then this one exists to neutralize yellow tones. Specially designed for tired and dull skin, this cream instantly creates a healthy glow effect using violet pigments and reflective micro-pearls.
If you feel that your skin is looking a little tired and lackluster, then this is the CC cream for you. As the clever blend of violet pigments and reflective micro-pearls works to improve your complexion, other ingredients in the formula–such as licorice extract–are working double-time to bring your skin extra brightening benefits. All in all, go for this CC cream if you feel the need to “wake up” your complexion!
Erborian CC Water Fresh Complexion Gel
The lighest CC cream
The main attraction of this CC cream is, without a doubt, its texture: it is a clear water-gel formula packed with encapsulated pigments that appear only you start blending the product on your skin. Infused with Centella asiatica, the star ingredient, and super hydrating glycerin and hyaluronic acid, this CC is ideal if you’re looking to create a fresh, dewy finish without any added oily residue.
Keep this in mind, though: this CC does not contain SPF, so make sure to always apply your usual sunscreen before this product, for adequate sun protection!
Erborian CC Homme SPF25
The best CC cream for men
All the CC creams on this list are absolutely unisex, but Erborian has gone above and beyond by designing a CC cream that is specific to the gentlemen.
With a light and antioxidant-rich formula, this product provides daily protection against external aggressions. At the same time, it improves the look of the skin in 5 important ways: it reduces signs of fatigue, minimizes dehydration lines, mattifies the skin, reduces the appearance of enlarged pores and, finally, creates a healthy and revitalized appearance. All of this in a single product: what’s not to like?
Now that we have analyzed all Erborian CC creams in detail, we’re confident you must have found the perfect match for you. Don’t forget to complement it with other best-selling products from Erborian!
