CC Cream is the perfect alternative for someone who doesn’t want to go for a full face of foundation but wants something along the lines of a very light feeling, natural looking, medium coverage base that’s also moisturising to the skin. If that’s on your wish list then Superdrug’s CC cream* is perfect for you! It provides a medium coverage and keeps your skin nice and hydrated.
Superdrug’s very own CC cream claims to have 6 benefits:
Counteracts Skin Tone Irregularity This CC cream gives you a completely evened out skin tone that looks flawless but still very natural. It counteracts any discolouration, hyper-pigmentation, dark under eye circles, redness or dull skin.
Effectively Conceals Imperfections Although this cream does not completely conceal all imperfections (blemishes) it still provides you with perfect looking natural skin with a few normal imperfections that are barely noticeable. It’s very buildable for a fuller coverage look and can be finished with concealer and powder for a flawless face (I love to use the GOSH mineral powder over the top for a perfect coverage that stays matte all day)!
Brightens and Smoothes Skin’s Texture It does have a demi-matte finish that gives the skin a dewy, healthy glow that looks oh so natural! It keeps your skin feeling smooth all day.
Minimises Pores, Fine lines and Wrinkles I find that this CC cream does not significantly minimise the look of pores but does conceal them slightly, so a pore refining primer is a great base for this product. Being 14 I can’t comment on any reduction of fine lines and wrinkles but if you have used this cream then let me know about that one.
Provides All Day Moisturisation The formula sits comfortably on the skin and keeps it feeling fresh and moisturised which is essential for cold winter weather that can be harsh on your skin.
SPF20 In summer you may not be feeling the need for a heavy coverage foundation and would prefer something a bit lighter with a higher coverage. The high SPF20 is very important to keep your skin protected from UV rays, even in the colder months!
My favourite thing about this CC cream is that it makes your skin look perfect but you can still see your natural skin underneath. You can still faintly see some imperfections such as blemishes but your skin is evened out, looks smooth and feels moisturised.
