It has a thick white consistency with micro-beads that look like tiny dots. One pump is enough! Two pumps may leave your skin pasty-white.

Performance

The CC cream looks a bit white when applied to the skin but after a few minutes it adjusts to my skin tone perfectly. It reduces redness, makes the skin look brighter and gives a very natural and glowy look! It feels a bit sticky at first and takes quite a while to fully absorb into the skin. If you have very dry or flaky skin you may still want to apply a moisturizer before applying the CC cream. Medium oil control and better suited for pale skin. May clog pores and cause small pimples.

How to use

3,5/5

Personally, I’m not a fan of a the glowy look, but since my skin tends to get a bit dry and flaky around my T-zone I thought the Glow version would be a better fit for my skin. I like to apply the CC cream over my entire face and layer it with a small amount of BB cream around my eyes and T-zone for better coverage.

What do you think of this CC cream? Or which CC cream do you recommend? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section below! I’m curious to hear what you think!

    1. Yeah, I have mixed feelings about this CC cream! It does reduce the redness around my T-zone and cheeks, but I noticed a few small pimples after using it. Is there any other CC cream you like? 🙂

      1. D:! Clogged pores are the biggest red flag. Hmm not really, I think the inevitable paleness tends to look unnatural and make our makeup look heavier than it really is 😡 Haven’t found one that works well yet.
