Think of this CC cream as your favorite BB cream’s older (and wiser) sister. Like her kid sis, CC moisturizes, primes, brightens, and conceals, but also takes it to the next level by tackling dark spots and uneven skin tone. The result? An even, dewy, youthful finish.
I used this today for the first time and I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the coverage is. I got the medium color and it is perfect for my skin color. It's very thick so a little goes a long way but also very light feeling at the same time. I thought the coverage was great and I liked the way my skin looked and felt. My only problem with it is the smell. I do not care for the smell but it won't stop me from using it and purchasing it.5
I have acne-prone, combination skin (aka: high maintenance), and tend to stray away from any skin creams other than topical break-out treatments or lightweight oil-free moisturizers with SPF. I've tried BB creams through Birch Box, and CC creams are completely new to me. I don't know much about what a CC cream is meant to do, but based on my experience with the sample I do really like this product. It's a bit thick, but applies very smoothly and evenly without feeling heavy or greasy. I've used it with or without moisturizer underneath and couldn't tell the difference. I wore it in the sun for 2 days straight (only applied once in the morning before applying make-up) and did notice that I still got a bit of a sunburn (although minimal, my skin doesn't tend to burn easily). If you're hoping for a trusty SPF, I would hesitate to recommend this alone. The coverage/concealing ability was good; this was my favorite part about the product - it was a good base to even out my skin tone/complexion before putting on make up. It also worked well as a primer and I noticed that I didn't need to re-apply make-up like I do without it. The only deterrence for me is the price.4
This was my favorite product in my box. I love the BB cream and the CC cream is just as good. I love the tint too.5
I found this a bit thick. The color wasn't an exact match so that may have been a deciding factor as well.3
I liked the Pur Minerals CC cream with SPF. I am new to CC creams but I am really liking them. The fact that this one has SPF it VERY important to me. It goes on well and blends in great with my skin tone.4
I've tried several CC creams from different brands, but this is the most brightening formula I've seen! I also love that it has a higher SPF than most. IT is truly a great multi-tasker that delivers what it promises.4
I love love love CC cream. its lighter than BB cream and other foundations. I can put this one on without having to moisturize my skin first. A little goes along ways so you don't need much to get great coverage. I'm so glad I got this in my birchbox this month!5
I was surprised at how thick the CC cream was when I applied a bit to my finger for application. It went on smooth and worked well at evening out my skin tone. It did have a heavy sunscreen/beachy scent to it, but it didn't leave my skin feeling greasy or burdened. It lasted well all day, even in the heat and humidity of a Midwest summer.4
I think I would really like this cream but I would need a slightly larger sample size to really rate it's effectiveness. I didn't see the "brightness" that I'd hoped for but the potential seemed to be there. May give it a shot.4
This product was a very delightful surprise.
The coverage is amazing and the Light was shockingly light enough for my skin.
The only con I've found with this product is that it's a bit heavy. Not in a "heavy makeup" sort of way but more in a night moisturizer kind of way.
