I’ve always liked CC creams better than BB creams to be honest. So far I’ve tried the Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream SPF 30
, my first CC love, bought this at end of last Summer and just love it! Leaves a beautiful glow on the skin while evening out my skin tone, sadly I had to stop using it as the Winter came trough as it’s a little to dark for me at the moment, hopefully will be able to use it again throughout September/October. Next came the Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream
, it’s my go to for the “foundation” as it has a little more coverage (but still very light coverage) than the last one and sits beautifully on the skin. I feel it closer to a BB than a CC but still love it, I have in the shade 53 and it’s a perfect match for me. Last but not least comes my all time favorite in terms on CC creams the Erborian CC Cream HD
it’s the lightest of them all, it comes in one universal shade and just gives me THE ultimate glow, I’ve never seen anything like this, I usually use it for no-makeup makeup days with just a hint of blush and mascara it’s absolutely gorgeous, when I use this look my friends always say “my skin looks amazing without makeup”, if they only knew :p
After a few videos where beauty-guru Lisa Eldrige raved about this CC cream by La Roche Posay, I decided to give it a go. I couldn’t be more disappointed about it.
“A La Roche-Posay first: a cover and correcting cream for sensitive skin prone to all types of redness, whether occasional or persistent, dispersed or localized. A universal tone that blends naturally into fair to medium skin and conceals to correct the appearance of shades of redness. Glides quickly over skin, streak-free.”
After using this product a few times I definitely decided it wasn’t for me, I simply cannot apply this to my skin. Yes it glides quickly on the skin but I can’t seem to make it stick to my skin. I’ve tried applying it with and without primer, after or instead moisturizer, on dry skin and slight humid skin, with a brush, with a sponge, with my fingers and it just doesn’t stick!! It doesn’t blend with my skin at all and after putting this on my face there is no way to fix it and it just sits on top of my skin and I have to remove everything and do my routine all over again. I finally stopped trying to use but I still have so if you please have any advice on how I should use this and make it stick to my skin, please let me know. Otherwise I just wasted a fair amount of money that will go directly to the bin.I don’t really have a lot of redness on my face but if you do and you’re thinking about giving this a go please consider that it has a pink undertone which will make you look even more red, I don’t what La Roche Posay was thinking when they created this product. The most basic makeup rule is that you counteract redness with a yellow toned foundation/powder.
