The CC Cream that I Surprisingly Rather Like



The whole BB, CC, ZZ thing has to date been a little lost on me. BB-wise I’m a big fan of the Dr Jart range, but there wasn’t really much else that I came across that floated my boat. When it came to something that delivered a light coverage, SPF and all the other things these alphabetically named creams had to offer, I was way more likely to whack out a tinted moisturiser instead. That was until I came across the Estée Lauder Revitalizing Supreme Global Anti-Ageing CC Creme. It’s a game changer people…

Pumped with Hyaluronic Acid, SPF 10 and a formula that leaves the skin moisturised, but comfortably so, I’ve been using this as the last step in my morning skincare routine, straight after serum. Moisturiser and SPF duties – tick. Then there’s the makeup-esque benefits. It dispenses out the tube as a grey-tinted liquid – it’s not the most attractive of things – but once in contact with the skin it blends in with my complexion and imparts its colour-correcting ways, dimming down my redness and making things look a bit more uniform. All I apply over the top is a dab of concealer (that Clarins one I’ve been going on about), and that’s my base done. Face base duties – sorted.

The downside? The price. At £40 a tube it’s not exactly purse-friendly and I have to admit that I’ve been using a rather large blob each morning (not because you have to, but because it just feels so darn nice on the skin). Can it be justified for the fact that it’s a moisturiser/SPF/face base all-in-one? Maybe. But until a repurchase needs to occur I’ll keep whacking this on and admiring the ‘my skin but better’-ness. A CC love? Who’d have thought it.
