We absolutely love our BB creams, but this next-generation CC cream takes corrective coverage to the next level. More lightweight than its prequel and easier to blend, the fragrance-free formula acts as both a primer and a foundation. It smooths fine lines and uneven skin and provides SPF protection (against UVA, UVB, and infrared-A rays). And light-diffusing mica minerals soften the appearance of pores and wrinkles for a fresh, flawless complexion. Plus, this all-in-one velvety cream comes in a range of self-adjusting shades to suit a variety of skin tones.
I was not a fan. It is basically thick, clay like foundation that is hard to blend and looks grey on the skin. It didn't irritate my skin so that was good but the color and consistency were gross1
This product was very pasty going on and then was extremely difficult to remove.1
My skin is very oily and sensitive. I normally use MURAD oil control moisturizer which has a lower SPF. Compared to that, this felt like putting cooking grease directly on my face. Washed it off immediately because I worried about it causing a massive breakout. Hopefully if Birchbox sends me another moisturizer, they will pick something more suitable for my skin type in my profile. This is my first box, and I hope it's not an indication of what I can expect in the future ):1
I tried this product twice. It was a good consistency and seemed to apply a light coverage for days when you do not totally feel like wearing all of your make-up. However, I will never use this product again. It went on smoothly, but after an hour of being on my skin my face was blotchy and orange. I actually had to go home and wash it off my face before continuing my day. It was awful and I was so embarrassed.1
I don't wear foundation or anything like that on my face, but I figured I'd try this anyway. I really didn't notice any difference, or any desirable difference. I really don't know much about cc creams and only use a bit a of concealer to touch up any spots that need coverage so I may not be the most knowledgable to review this. I also only applied this on my nose and chin (I am nervous at putting makeup all over my face!) but the color was spot on and blended really well.1
Product was dry and chalky. It wouldn't rub into skin. Perhaps the sample was bad but based on my experience, I wouldn't buy it. I had to rewash my face after applying since product was heavy and wouldn't blend. Pitched the rest in the trash.1
I did not like the color made skin on my face look dead, a very off color.1
This product only brought attention to areas of dry skin and even my wrinkles. This did NOT smooth fine lines for me as the description claims. In fact, it was pretty awful. From my understanding, a CC cream is a tinted moisturizer that sits lightly on the face with a bit of tint while moisturizing. This was actually a thick cream, it had a matte finish that didn't provide coverage, and it enhanced all of my dry skin and wrinkles.
In this case, I am grateful for the sample size because I do not like the product. MAYBE I could use it as a concealer, but honestly, it doesn't conceal anything; I'd just be using it to get rid of it. I just saw the price listed for the full size. No.
MAYBE a "flawless" face could benefit from this cream (back in my late teens and early twenties, this might have worked for me), but if you're dealing with uneven skin tone, minor breakouts and dark circles under your eyes, you might want to skip this.
I'll stick to my Bare Minerals mineral powder foundation with its better coverage and super-fresh look.
Didn't care for it. Too messy and didn't like its texture.1
I wish I could have really tried this but the shade was completely too dark for me1
