CC Cream or BB Cream?

CC Cream or BB Cream?

Western?BB?and?CC creams?are suffering a twin crisis of identity and quality control, making the whole topic confusing and let’s face it, a little bit of a bore.?New variations hit the market every day and make more inflated promises than my college boyfriend – from a glowing complexion to?hydration to sun protection to’skincare benefits?- but for the most part, they perform like primers or tinted moisturisers by any other name.?Undoubtedly there are discoveries out there to be made, but honestly, who has the time to wade through the ocean of available products to sort the game-changers from the duds?

Why, we do, that’s who! And nobody could be more thrilled than us to proclaim?Clinique’s Moisture Surge CC Cream?an absolute star.?If you weren’t blown away by?their BB offering?fret not – this stuff blows it out of the water. Oil-free and suitable for all skin types, it provides lasting moisture and keeps my dehydrated/oily visage on an even keel throughout the day.Coverage is impressive – it takes care of redness and evens out the skintone, although a little concealing may still be needed on any heavy duty blemishes. But it provides a perfected finish and a radiant, healthy glow that’s the equivalent of a good?eight hours sleep.Add to that a generous SPF of 30, and the fact that it comes in a whopping?nine shades – where many creams of this type come in just the one – and you can see why we’ve fallen in love. Colour correcting technology works to even out any redness, sallowness or dull tones from the skin, and yes, it works. No, really.

Yup, with this one Clinique has really?hit the jackpot – a CC cream that does what it says, and then some. How refreshing!

Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream SPF 30 Hydrating Colour Corrector is?on counter now at €35.
