Complexion perfection: 10 best CC creams

Colour-correcting or complexion-correcting creams are a clever skincare-make-up hybrid, that combine the care of a cream with the colour of a foundation, to brighten dull complexions and smooth away imperfections

Some CC creams are just glorified tinted moisturisers, but we found the ones whose ingredients really do work over time to improve the skin's condition, while also transforming complexions instantly to blend away redness, pigmentation and signs of tiredness.

From Bourjois good value 123 Perfect to Bobbi Brown's version with SPF 35, we've tried them all so you don't have to.

I was sold on the lightweight texture and subtle zesty scent in Ole Henriksen's Perfect Truth, which transformed my skin as soon as I applied it and definitely improved it in just two weeks. If like me, you're not so keen on a liquid base, you'll love MAC Prep & Prime CC as it's also available in a loose and pressed powder formulation. Soap & Glory's Superfluid gets great results at a competitive price.
