They've been around for a while now, but I still don't get how these BB/CC/DD creams improve on my wonderful SPF 50 and favorite foundations...

...for me, I couldn't care less about foundation fulfilling other properties, when finding one that matches my skin, looks fantastic and behaves very well is already a tall order. I can only get my foundations in certain countries, and even then I blend them myself afterwards

For me, the most important issue is spf. Right color is of course very important but if I would find it other make up, I could switch but day cream with spf is more difficult. I have tried two cream during this spring time and it seems I'm gonna use bb cream also this summer, normal spf day cream didn't work for me. I have tried to find day cream or sun screen because I have been little worried how well bb cream would protect, I use it very little after all but it was enough last summer and I'm not gonna spend much on beach.

Things are only impossible until they’re not.

To me they are just foundations, I am always searching for the best one. I don`t have so much to cover thus the supposed lighter texture of BBs/CCs made me interested in the beginning. I don`t believe one product to fullfill all my skin`s needs perfectly and I love cosmetics so much that I will always use multiple products even if they manage to invent one perfect product for all someday. Which will never happen I believe, they got mediocre in all qualities at their best.

^I agree with you. Like they say you dont need moisturizer when wearing bb cream which i dont believe at all. I dont think they moisturize at all. Same with tinted moisturizers..

I also must agree, but the thing that makes me like BB creams is the high SPF, like more than 20 (currently using one with SPF 50)- I've a very fair skin and in my case is an absolute must even when the sun is not shining. But still, I always use moisturizer underneath my BB cream.
It also depends on which brand you are using, I've noticed that my skin is slightly brightened after using Skin79 for about 6 months.
But tbh, in my opinion, CC creams are just another version of BB creams, you know, they must generate the new hype after BB creams became a staple on the market.
