Review, Ingredients, Swatches: JULEP DD Crème - Best For Daily Defense - More Benefits Compared To BB & CC Creams

I have been a JULEP fan from their nail collections, so, finding out that the first ever DD cream to pass my desk was from them came as quite a pleasant surprise.

As you know, I have reviewed AA, BB and CC creams but never a DD (Dramatically Different) prior to this very article. I even wondered if there was such a thing when the rumors started.

Yes, this DD Crème ($36.00) is meant to have more coverage than a BB cream, and have more benefits for your skin than a CC cream. It’s a do-it-all multitasking dream cream. It’s meant to provide anti-aging ingredients, protect the skin (SPF 25), moisturize and act as a skin brightener — an all-in-one product.

I have been impressed with many primers, BBs and CCs, so the verdict is not truly out on this one as of yet. The samples given were not my shade though, as you can see. But they blended beautifully and easily upon application, leaving my skin looking even toned overall. My skin felt supple and did not appear shiny after fully blending the DD cream in.

These DD Crèmes will be available at the end of May on www.julep.com.

There will also be a DD Concealer for $32.00 that is meant to protect and illuminate the orbital area, as well as diminishing the appearance of fine line and act as a pore minimizer.

I do think more brands will continue to make multitasking products, as well as cross-branding the concepts seen in the recent launch of BB creams for hair.

  1. I use a BB cream and really like it. I think I would LOVE the DD cream!!!!!!!!

  2. I am really looking forward to hearing more reviews about this new cream. It would be nice to combine multiple products into one. It’s become so time consuming before work and expensive. With my multiple skin issues I would love to try the Julep samples!

  4. I was one of the lucky ones to be able to sample their now DD creme/concealer. I -like- the DD creme … but I am absolutely in love with the DD concealer! Amazing coverage. Already pre-ordered it 🙂
