I shared my first BB cream experience a few months back right here. I tried my first BB cream this blog, and today I bring you my first CC cream experience!
With summer on its way and life being busy as ever, I welcomed the opportunity to try a product that was lighter, had SPF coverage (SPF 15) and evened out my skin tone. Summer calls for simpler beauty routines and even more diligence on the skincare front, and Mary Kay’s CC Cream fit the bill for a product that could tackle both of those things.
The cream comes in a tube with a pump attached for easy dispensing. It’s a very lightweight cream that offers sheer coverage – it really means it when it says it’s a complexion corrector. Count on it to even out your skintone, but don’t expect it to cover up major blemishes. I used it with concealer on key problem areas to test the level of coverage and got the below results.
Not bad, eh? I’ve worn it out a few times on weekends when I’m feeling lazy and looking to go very basic with my makeup, and haven’t found it bothers my combination skin which is another bonus. I’ll know for sure how it reacts to my oily t-zone once the 30 degree weather comes along, but for mild temperatures I don’t find it makes my skin more oily (but it’s not like it’s a product that will eliminate oil).
It comes in four shades, which may not seem like much but since it’s lightweight/sheer, an exact match isn’t necessary – just pick the closest one. It retails for $22.00, and for an all-in-one product that will come in handy over the summer, it’s worth checking out.
Do you use CC creams? How do you like yours compared to a BB cream or regular foundation?
