WHAT ABOUT OILY SKIN?

BB and CC creams are ideal for oily skin.

They conceal imperfections (BB), even out skin tone (CC) and are non-comedogenic – which means they don't block pores!

The Peony CC Cream offers a "fresh complexion" effect, which is perfect for oily skin.

And if you're looking for an ultra-matte finish, apply your BB or CC cream first, then dust a fine layer of loose powder on top!
