I am sure, all of you beautiful people must have tried and loved the BB creams to death, so we will be then talking about CC cream here. CC stands for colour correction and CC creams are for correcting and enhancing complexion.
My first ever tried CC cream is Bourjois 123 Perfect. I got this back in March and since then I am completely obsessed with it.
The CC cream comes in a squeezable plastic tube which has a nozzle. The consistency of product is quite runny. It has three pigments, Apricot, Green and White which are anti – fatigue, anti – redness and anti – dark spots respectively. It also has SPF 15 which is an extra bonus. According to the packaging it gives 24 hours hydration and it is for all skin type.
The coverage is pretty decent for a CC cream. It gives medium coverage and the product is buildable. It smooths on skin very easily and does not accentuate any dry patches, nor cling to them. The finish of product is flawless. If I describe it as a medium coverage every day hydrating foundation then it will not be wrong.
It covers my pigmentation and post blemishes marks pretty nice and lifts the complexion instantly. I don’t have dark circles but aftermaths of some sleepless nights can be easily camouflage. It is my everyday makeup staple now. It doesn't change the colour or oxidise and also stay put for a long time without fading or slipping from skin. The feel of CC cream is very hydrating. It may not be for very hot humid days and very oily skin people as a summer foundation but it was brilliant for me for past couple of months when my skin was severely dehydrated in winter. It definitely needs a little touch up with powder during the day but I don’t bother to do it more than once because I personally like the dewy finish of this CC cream.
It is great for all skin type in winters, brilliant for combination skin and normal to dry skin in spring/summer and in very hot weather it looks gorgeous on dry skin. However I wont mind using it in summers as well if I am staying indoor all day.
The only down side with this CC cream, like other Bourjois foundations, is the limited colours selection. It comes in four different shades and my shade is 32 Beige Clair or Light Beige which matches my skin tone perfectly.
It costs around £10. You can get it from here
If you are looking for everyday medium coverage yet light feel foundation then Bourjois 123 Perfect CC cream is the perfect match. I hope you find this product review helpful.
