Sometimes the sequel is better than the original. Just when we hailed BB creams as the ultimate makeup multitaskers, along came CC creams. This 12-in-1 wonder from Juice Beauty offers more targeted anti-aging benefits than its BB counterparts, all while delivering a buildable layer of coverage. The creamy formula has a light, fruity scent and is designed to moisturize, prime, protect, and conceal imperfections all at once.
I received this as a sample in my July Birchbox, but I only just now got around to trying it because I've received several other samples of BBs/CCs/sunscreens. I started to slather this one on my face, assuming it would smell and feel as nicely as similar product samples I had received in the past. I'm very scent-tolerant, but this stuff smells strong and NOT GOOD to me. I immediately scrubbed it off my face... but that funky, gross smell lingered for another hour. To me, it smells kind of like... chemicals, mixed with old lawn clippings or cut flowers... like something like used to smell good but has gone bad. Yuck. Definitely not "a light, fruity scent", IMO!
Also, IMO, the texture is pretty thick and felt almost greasy... but maybe that part would be totally fine if I actually had the patience to keep it on my face.
Do not use this type of product. I will not use this type of product. Do not want to get any more products like this in my monthly box1
Ok, so I had first tried a few dots out to touch up my concealor, and had noticed that the color would really work for me. It had the right amount of warm undertones for my neutral skin tone, and I was excited to try it out the next day. As a concealor, I had blended it with my regular one, so I cannot say that it worked well or not there.
Upon actually trying it, the SMELL. The SMELL is awful. The fragrance or the ingredients, not entirely certain, give this a heavy chemical citrus scent that is really unappealling. I am pretty smell sensitive, so my hubs and daughter smelled it and both thought it was pretty awful.
Next, the coverage is below sub par. I understand that most cc creams are light, glowy coverage to even skin tone and ensure you have a great spf base, but I literally couldn't even tell a difference for my normal coloring...other than my skin looked very greasy. It definitely felt like it sat on my skin.
My daughter tried it as well and was equally disappointed. I did try blending it with some of my foundation but that really defeats the point, really. I have pretty great skin, very light freckling and some sun spotting, but I will easily say that my skin looked worse afterwards.
The consistency was very sticky. Hard to blend and made my face feel dry once it was applied. Only used it once. Threw the rest away.1
This stuff was weird. Left my skin feeling sticky and gross. Would not use again. I threw it out after one use :(1
I didn't even put this on my face because it smelled so bad! How is anyone supposed to wear this when it stinks? And it was REALLY thick which made me think it would just cake up or clog my pores. :(1
This stuff is thick and sticky. Had a herd time spreading it. Couldn't see any difference. Tried it before reading that damp skin works best. Maybe I'll try again but I most likely won't buy it.1
This product had a thick consistency and apply well. I tried the sample 3 times. I found that that it had a greasy texture after the product was allowed to set in to the skin.1
I bought this because I have really liked the face cleansing products and it seemed to have good reviews. I am not a fan at all. I don't even have that bad of blemishes and I prety much had to go back over my entire face with concealer and cover it all up with that. I'm sad I wasted my money on this product. It's definitely not worth it.1
I was very excited to try this. But the smell and texture, well I couldn't get past it to even try it thoroughly. Not sure if I just got a bad one or what. I wouldn't recommend.1
