I was perusing the aisles of Boots the other weekend and came across the Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream which has recently come out. I’m not a massive fan of BB creams to be quite honest but Bourjois really have been hitting it out of the ball park with their bases and so it came home with me.
So what is a CC cream? It’s basically a BB cream but with corrective colouring qualities.
I’ve been wearing this daily for the past few weeks and I’m really enjoying it. I’m reaching for it much more than I thought I would. As the lighter, warmer months come along I tend to lean more towards a much lighter, minimal base and this ticks all the boxes. It gives a good amount of coverage, I’d say light to medium and when used with a primer, lasts pretty much all day. It’s definitely more of a foundation than a tinted moisturiser so it’s perfect for gals who haven’t really got on with tinted moisturisers in the past. It’s very lightweight and blends into the skin with ease so it’s perfect for those “Oh crap! I’m late!” mornings.
The CC cream comes in 4 shades and is oil-free with 3 colour correcting pigments – anti-fatigue, anti-redness and anti-dark spots. I find this gives me a really good, even base without much need for too much concealing after.
Have you tried this?
