I agree with other reviewers on that it's not what we occasionally expect a CC Cream to be.I expected sheer coverage and dewy finish but this one has an almost moderate coverage with a semi matte-semi radiant(definitely not completely matte) finish and while it's more on the liquid side(not a thick cream) it feels more foundation like than like a CC cream or a tinted moisturizer and can feel slightly heavy if you're not used to foundations.(it's coverage is much more than Bourjois City Radiance)
It claims to have three pigments to colour correct skin :apricot(anti fatigue)-green(anti redness)-white (anti dark spots).my skin definitely needs some colour correction,I have redness on my cheeks,dark cycles under my eyes and my skin can look dull sometimes as I'm an Asian(middle Eastern) and a cigarette smoker.this one does a perfect job in evening out my skin,there's no signs of redness left and my skin looks healthy but still I'd better use a concealer under my eyes if I want to completely cover my dark cycles.
I have it in shade 31(Ivory) which is light enough for my NC15 skin but has a pink undertone,I don't dislike it since it's not too pink and doesn't look bad on my neutral toned skin and makes my skin look less dull and healthier but I wish it had a light color with slight yellow undertone too(32 is a bit dark for me).I like that it doesn't oxidize and has a decent longevity on skin
Bourjois CC Cream has SPF 15,not enough to skip sunscreen but it's better than nothing.it claims to hydrate skin for 24 hours and give us a luminous complexion and smooth skin.well it really manages to do that.it's almost liquid like texture feels moisturizing on skin and my skin feels smooth while having it on my face but I can't skip moisturizer before putting it on.it looks it's best when I moisturize my face,then put it on and blend it with a damp beauty blender(I use Caudalli grape water spray to moisten my BB sponge),and looks good when I don't use too much of it(it's better to use a concealer for covering up places which need more coverage),I usually set my makeup with Nuxe or Mac spray not a powder because powder can look too dry on me and my skin rarely gets oily/shiney but you'd better powder on the areas you have lines as it can settle in lines.it doesn't have a strange scent(more like a lightly fragranced sunscreen) and doesn't irritate or breakout my sensitive,acne prone skin
I like it's packaging as it's very travel friendly and doesn't look cheap eventhough it's a simple plastic tube but be careful not to squeeze the tube or you will have a lot of product coming out of it's nozzle
All in all I like it while I can't say I love it.I probably will repurchase it as it's widely available and it definitely worthes 7$ ! I find myself choosing it to take to travel instead of my other foundations/BB creams
Bytheway,I also purchased Bourjous CC concealer,loved it at first but stopped using it as it was too drying on my already dry skin and showed up dry patches I have under my eyes.I mentioned that to say it's texture is nothing like this one,it's very liquidy,sheer,not moisturizing at all and doesn't have much coverage.if you want a concealer with a similar texture to this CC cream try Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer
P.S: my mom tried it and she loved it so much that sent me to buy one for her instantly and told me it's going to be her new HG! she's 52,has normal skin,with some dark spots(pigmentation) on her cheeks and few fine lines.her skin looks at least 20 years younger after wearing this.it really looks luminous(but not dewy),smooth and evened out.she didn't use a concealer and this one and a sunscreen were the only things she used.it's not like her own skin,but not like a heavy makeup either,it's more like a healthy and bright skin which has used some sunscreen
