Clinique CC Cream

Clinique CC Cream in Light, £28

BB and CC creams are everywhere at the moment aren't they? I think most brands now have released their own version of either, and I will admit I am guilty of owning a few. However with saying that Clinique's Moisture Surge is the first CC cream within my collection, I've had this for a while now so can safely say my opinion on this is solid.

Clinique's Moisture Surge CC acts as a colour correcting cream which with the help of Smart Colour Correcting Technology will help restore the skins undertone looking like the picture of health.

I've never actually tried any of Clinique's foundations or creams so this is the first and I have been really surprised by how much I love this product. What I love about this is once I have applied it does a fabulous job of hiding the redness on my skin whilst allowing my skin to look natural and not cakey at all. The CC Cream doesn't provide the heaviest of coverage, I find it to be quite light but don't underestimate its power, the cream will cover most blemishes and leaves skin looking even. Depending on how severe the redness is you may have to pop a little bit of c
oncealer on, but not a lot.

What stands out most for me about this product is how quickly it takes to apply, I find it a great product to use if you are rushing out with 10 minutes to spare. It doesn't take a lot of blending which is great, and looks very natural. If you do feel that you need something with a bit more coverage this would make the perfect base for you to apply your foundation.

This is perfect for the summer as it comes with an SPF of 30, which is a great plus because no matter what the weather I always think an SPF is very important when choosing a product.

When it comes to lasting power this baby will last all day, and I'm not talking about when applied with a primer! This is not moving, which I think is brilliant, with the weather being a lot warmer of late I still find it stays put which is a big big big bonus!

There are six shades available which I believe range from very light to deep, and if you are unsure about which shade to go to the lovely people at Clinique can match it for you, I remember when I got mine they also had a handy shade wheel which they popped against my chin to decide which shade would be best.

Have you guys tried this out? What are your favourite BB/CC Creams?
