This cc cream is the PERFECT mediator of the Healthy Mix Serum gel-
(runny, light,breathable texture) and the
Healthy Mix Foundation- (medium coverage)
It’s easy to apply, blend like a dream & almost undetectable on the skin! Doesn’t emphasize texture or sink into fine lines.
The finish is natural, semi-matte & works with any type of application I’ve tried.
The container is a plastic squeeze tube, so it’s also travel-friendly. Praise to that! 🤗
My only gripe is the POOR SHADE RANGE
(Which applies to all their foundation)
Shade “light beige” have distinctive yellow undertone (on the range of NC 20)
Shade “rose beige” have pinkish grayish undertone(on the range of NW22-25) and basically nothing in between.
I have a soft spot for Bourjois, but I find it soo old fashion (on the verge of offensive) to consider only three skin tones!
Now days, drugstore companies offer HUGE VARIETY of shades/in between shade/undertone..
there’s just no excuse.. Come on Bourjois,
get with the program!!! 😑
The formula is fabulous so I’ll repurchase.

First application today for 7 hours and I am rather fond of this and although I can't call this my HG, it gave me what I needed. I was looking for something that is less heavy than foundation with decent coverage and moisture for my dry skin.

I applied this with my fingers and upon my first application, I could feel it just sitting on my skin (too much silicones, maybe?) and needed to properly blend this so that it looks even. One lippie off for the uncomfortable initial feeling. I tried patting it in and had to wait for a couple of minutes to let it set before dusting on some loose powder. I felt fine after the loose powder..

The coverage was great - the redness on my cheeks and around my nose, dark circles and little acne scars were evened out nicely - not 100% but 50 to 60% covered. 31 matched my skin colour and warm skin tone, which is somewhere between NC25 and 30.

The staying power was impressive, after 7 hours in a hot and humid environment, there was still some product on my face! I wasn't expecting that to happen, my skin still looked decently covered and albeit little more dewy than I first started the day - which I did not mind either.

I'll definitely use this as a daily cc cream/foundation and repurchase. I was deciding between IT and Bourjois but this won me over with the more reasonable price point. I only sampled IT on my hand and the difference is that the application was smoother, it dried quicker, I'm not cool with snail secretion on my face, and also more than twice the price of this one.

Just love this. I switched from loreal true match as it was looking very dry on my skin coming up to the winter. Been using this for about 2 months and this is honestly amazing from normal/drier skin In the winter. Definitely looks very smooth. Not sure it looks luminous but just looks like a very smooth natural skin. Feels so lightweight on the face and lasts all day when setting it with a bit of translucent powder. Just wish there were more shade options. I have ivory and this is a tiny bit light in the winter but with a tan would be ok.

I have combination skin and have a few blemishes on the t-zone of my face. I live in a hot and humid country. This is my first cc cream so I can't compare it with other cc creams. I love cc cream because it has color correctors and it has spf so I don't have to spend extra time layering sunscreen underneath it especially when I'm rushing to work. The coverage is medium, and it has a natural finish and the colour matches my skin. However, I notice that after 8 hour, it does oxidise a little bit. Plus my t-zone is a bit shiny after about 4 hours of using it. And it transfers! Still thinking whether to repurchase considering that it's much cheaper than the IT cc cream!

Love this! I don't even know what a CC cream is supposed to be like so as with other reviewers, I'm just treating it like a liquid foundation.

Let's get the drawback out of the way - the shade range is terrible. I'm NW15 which luckily is the perfect shade for 31 Ivory. It's nice and pink based, if that's your thing.

It goes on very light and you can build it up. It doesn't oxidise, stick to dry patches or go oily. You can even wear without powder for light make up days. Love!

Good coverage, quite often I use it instead of regular foundation. It's hard for me to pick the right shade since ivory is too light (too pink?) for me and light beige is perfect for summer when I get some tan but too dark when the tan fades.

This is a first impression review, but I was so moved by this CC cream that I must write a review now! Plus, as an avid user of foundations/BB creams/tinter moisturisers, sometimes it's easy to tell for me from a first impression how a product will fare in the long run.

I used my fingers to apply the CC cream, thinking it'll have the consistency and coverage of a BB cream or tinted moisturiser and not wanting to sheer out any coverage by using a sponge or brush. Boy, I was wrong. It was A LOT more coverage that I expected, much like a foundation pretty much. Despite that, it still applied nicely with fingers and didn't look cakey even hours after application. Stayed on all day. It felt lightweight on the face as well. It has a slightly matte finish which, again, I didn't expect from a CC cream. For reference, it's definitely more matte than Bourjois' healthy mix foundations. In fact, I feel like this CC cream even has higher coverage than the healthy mix foundations, which has a light to buildable medium coverage. I have a lot of hyperpigmentation from old acne and a little bit of redness from current spots, and this covers them up pretty well before I even apply concealer too.

I guess the only gripes I have with this CC cream is the limited shade range and packaging. I believe there are only 4 shades. I'm an NC25-30 in MAC and the second shade fits me well. If you're much lighter or darker than NC25-30, idk. The packaging is a bit messy as well. I ordered the CC cream online and since the tube's opening isn't sealed with a sticker or anything, a lot of the product leaked in the cap because of the air pressure etc. That kinda sucks, but it's okay now. Price is alright, a bit pricey in Australia but I purchased it during Priceline's 40% off cosmetics sale, so that's okay too!

Overall, I think this is a great CC cream if you wanna venture out of foundations onto BB creams or tinted moisturisers but concerned about the lower coverage. This is really good.

This is my current everyday foundation as of now. I had trouble finding a foundation that fits my incredibly yellow undertones and surprisingly enough after many swatchings on drugstores, this is actually the closest I've found. Hence the reason why I've gotten it. Mine is 32 Beige Clair, and the closest foundation matches I have so far is RCMA Shinto 1, and Kat Von D Neutral 45 as reference.

Pros-
- Medium buildable coverage
- Nice natural finish
- Good color selections for people who are light-medium and with yellow undertones

Cons
- Pricey for a drugstore brand
- Squeeze tube packaging ( I prefer pumps)
- Does cling onto drier skin patches on me
- Not as long lasting as I want it to be ( 4-5 hours)

I'd buy it again if I still can't find an affordable yellow toned foundation but otherwise, probably not. I do prefer heavier coverage/cream foundations too so this isn't really for me. But for it's availability, I probably would if I ran out and if the foundation I've ordered online hasn't arrived yet

I can't believe it's taken me so long to review this product since it's one of the few makeup items I've actually repurchased. I don't know why it's marketed as a "CC cream", to me it's more like a good BB or a lightweight/medium coverage foundation.

This is just excellent all around. My shade is 31 Ivory, and it's a pretty good match for my fair/light skin. It's very liquidy and has a velvety feel to it. It spreads out very easily, just with fingers and gives a natural result that's neither matte nor dewy. I also find that it glides very effortlessly over any texture or flakiness. Coverage can range from light to medium depending what method of application you use and how much you build it up. It doesn't look cakey at all and it's perfect for daytime occasions. If I want more of a glowy, no-makeup makeup look I like to add a drop of face oil to it or even mix it with my sunscreen. It's not particularly longwearing -nothing on me is- but that can be adjusted with a primer and some powder on top.

My only problem is how leaky the bottle is, it can get messy and a bit wasteful but I'm overlooking it because the product itself is so great. Price is very reasonable for the quality.
