Ah spring how I love you! Sunshine, bright colours and pretty flowers coming into the world. Because of this I love to not have so much coverage on my face and wanted to find a foundation/ cc cream that would help me to achieve this. I recently watch Essie Buttons Spring Make Up Look and saw she was raving about the Bourjois CC Cream. The coverage is a lot better than you would expect from a cc cream and helps to even out the complexion making it look flawless without too much make up on the face.
The CC Cream claims to have three colour corrections, the first being Apricot to help with Anti-Fatigue. The second is Green to help with Anti-Redness, which I feel it definitely does as I have red patches across my cheeks. And then finally White to help with Anti-Dark Spots, currently I have quite a few dark spots on my chin and forehead and this product helps to diminish the look of them. Then applying a concealer on top really helps to create the illusion of flawless, natural looking skin.
I am also impressed with the range of colours, though there are not many, the lightest works perfectly with my skin tone. Many other BB or CC creams I have used are not very pale and therefore look horribly orange on my skin. This product feels lovely and light, almost as if I am not wearing anything. With an SPF of 15 it’s perfect to take away with me on holiday!
One thing I would say is that it is not 24h long like it suggests on the packaging, I would say it lasts for about 8 hours before starting to fade and set into the dry patches. I only really wear make up for this amount of time anyway so does not create much of a problem.
Have you tried any CC or BB Creams that you love? Let me know which ones they are!
