Full coverage foundation is just too much to wear on a daily basis during the summer…
I decided to pick up a lighter foundation for the hotter months, although they still haven’t seemed to appear in the UK, and seeing as my holy grail foundation is the Bourjois Healthy Mix, I decided to try their CC Cream.
I picked up the 33 Rose Beige and it matches my skintone fairly well but I still think it’s a little darker than I would have hoped. However there are only 4 shades within the range so getting your exact colour may be hard.
I like how it has SPF 15, which is great for the summertime and with my base layer of my Simple moisturizer containing SPF 15 as well I know I’m going to be protected when I’m out in the sun…if there is any in the UK, it’s very rare.
I definitely think the product does what it says on the packet. It makes my skintone even as well as reduces the dark circles under my eyes. However because this isn’t a full coverage foundation I still go in with my concealer for my under eyes but tend to leave it at at as I feel it covers any other of my imperfections well.
I tend to wear this CC Cream on a daily basis when I’m out doing errands but I wouldn’t wear it to an evening event where I want a fuller coverage so for what I want it to achieve it does well and I really like it. However, I’m not sure about how hydrating it is but my skin doesn’t feel dry when I remove it after a days wear.
At £9.99 it’s affordable for the high street but for me it is a little expensive for a CC Cream. I usually have a cut off point of £10 for full coverage foundations so I’m not sure on whether this product will be repurchased but I will use this product up as I like the coverage it gives me, it’s light weight and it looks natural on the skin which are three main things I want when looking for a lighter foundation for summer.
I apply this CC Cream with my Real Techniques Complexion Sponge (damp) as I feel this is the best way to apply it. I have also tried to apply it when my Real Techniques Buffing Brush but I prefer the more natural look the sponge gives.
Overall I really like this CC Cream but for the price I may look into some different ones for the future so please leave some suggestions of your favourite CC/BB creams below.
