Texture When we road-tested BB creams in the Total Beauty office, some of my fellow editors really didn't like the texture. They thought they were too silicone-like and oily. Well, they're thrilled about CC creams, which have a softer, almost mousse-like consistency. "Unlike BB creams, CC creams have a lighter texture," says Rachel Kum, co-founder of Rachel K Cosmetics in Hong Kong. "This results in a formula that's extremely easy to blend."
