1. Daily Correcting Cream by Supergoop!
While some CC creams are one-trick ponies, this color-correcting cream fulfills multiple roles. Not only does it gracefully conceal blemishes, but this is also a CC cream with 35 SPF and provides ample protection from the aging ultraviolet light of the sun using natural mineral elements. It also serves as a sheer, breathable foundation that won’t crease or crack with extended wear. Pores, fine lines, and pigment inconsistencies are gently smoothed away to an even, gorgeous tone.
2. Mary Kay Light to Medium CC Cream with SPF
If you’re less interested in a reliable foundation product and are seeking a natural look, this product is ideal. With SPF 15 and light coverage that evens out the overall texture and tinting of a wide range of skin tones, this easy-to-use product provides reliable results. Because it isn’t heavily toned, the cream suits wearers of many complexions. It’s also formulated to meet the needs of many different skin types, gently smoothing irregularities, fine lines, and pores. Simply apply a thin layer to face and jaw, blend, and go. You’ll have excellent protection from the sun without worrying about touch-ups as the day wears towards the evening.
3. Color Correcting Cream with SPF 20 from Lumene
For fresh, light coverage that lasts all day, consider Lumene’s cc cream. It offers excellent protection from UV sunlight, which can prematurely damage skin and cause fine lines or loss of elasticity. While it’s feather light to wear, it amply conceals blemishes and evens out skin tone for a flawless, matte finish. It may be used as a primer, a concealer, or a naturalistic foundation.
4. Clinique’s Moisture Surge Color Corrector with SPF 30
While there are many reasons we may experience uneven skin tone, dehydrated skin is one of the main culprits, causing redness and even breakouts as a result of inadequate moisture. The skin technicians at Clinique have designed an ideal cc cream with SPF and plenty of essential moisturizers to help mend weary skin from day one. Not only will it provide a natural luminescence every time you apply it, but it conceals blemishes, evens skin tone, and delivers deep moisture to dry or irritated tissue.
5. Natural Coverage with SPF 20 from Beauty by Earth
If your primary need is a moisturizing sunblock, try this organic cc cream made with only the purest of natural ingredients. While it serves to even skin tone and conceal blemishes, it’s light enough to wear for a walk on the beach or an afternoon of shopping. Just a hint of tint in this sunblock with moisturizer will allow you to feel dressy without the entire process of a full makeup regimen.

6. Dream Fresh by Maybelline
While technically a beauty balm, this cream serves as a color correcting cream, an easy way to conceal mild blemishes, and a light foundation with a dewy, youthful finish.

As it moisturizes your skin, visibly improving dermatological health with use, it also provides a potent shield against UV radiation with SPF 30.
7. Pacifica’s Beauty Ultra Natural CC Cream
Using only cruelty-free, vegan ingredients, this is a great CC cream for sensitive skin. The organic coconut water and gentle coconut oil are blended with other natural elements such as kelp and ginseng to provide light, perfect coverage and regulate redness. As you wear it, it moisturizes and repairs weary skin, steering clear of phthalates, parabens, and other chemicals that can damage tissues over time. Natural minerals blended in to reflect light and create a gentle glow also act as protection from the sun.
8. Complexion Rescue from Bare Minerals
Bare Minerals has a name for its use of natural minerals for spectacular results. This hydrating gel cream incorporates minerals into a natural CC cream with just a kiss of tint. Once applied, it creates an even, radiant complexion with light to medium coverage, depending on your needs. As you wear it, the intensive moisturizers help to rejuvenate irritated and weary skin, improving tone, texture, and even pigmentation over time.
9. It Cosmetics’ Your Skin But Better CC Cream
Let’s be real, as we age, skin can lose its luster and sometimes appear blotchy, but that doesn’t mean we consign ourselves to the sidelines. Love yourself and your skin with this intensive moisturizing full-coverage CC cream from It Cosmetics. It provides the ultimate UVA/UVB protection with SPF 50 and the anti-aging serum—which is industry language for skin-repairing and rejuvenating moisture—helps to improve skin tone and resilience over time. Invest in serious skin care while you’re out ruling the world with this impeccable full-coverage foundation, concealer, and color correcting cream.
10. Lumi Glotion by L’Oreal Paris
Who says you can’t have a little fun with products specifically designed to bring out your natural sparkle. This patented glow lotion is formulated with SPF to shield skin from harmful exposure to the sun while it moisturizes. Apply as a lightweight lotion with sunblock. The color matching technology automatically renders your visage evenly toned, true to you, and lovely in its balance, while highlights sparkle subtly in any light. Shea butter and glycerin provide continuous moisturizing all day long.
Because skin needs and levels of coverage vary from person to person, most of these products offer a broad base of benefits, from light to medium coverage and general SPF content to enhanced moisture delivery to improve skin over time. However, some are more specialized to address specific needs. The best CC creams tend to extend these essential benefits to treat with sensitive skin considerations, desire for a light, youthful glow, naturally sourced ingredients, and use of beneficial mineral sunblock ingredients designed to protect skin while also remaining environmentally friendly.
