Move over, BB creamsthe next skin care innovator is brought to you by the letter “C”! CC creams (short for color control) are lighter, more potent versions of their complexion-perfecting counterparts, and they’re just hitting stores in the U.S. The differences lie in the product’s airy texture, making it easy to blend with a wider variety of skin tones, and the higher dosage of skin-nourishing ingredients. Olay’s version ($23; olay.com) is packed with an ample amount of niacinamide and vitamin B to combat age spots, and, in January, Wet N Wild will be launching their own CC cream! The brand’s upcoming CoverAll Cream Foundation ($4; at drugstores in January) uses Wet N Wild’s patented VisiBright technology to diminish signs of aging and hydrate your skin’s collagen reserves. With these alphabetical skin care-foundation hybrids dominating the beauty market, we’re wondering when we’ll see the release of DD creams
