Recently I have meandered into the world of the CC/BB cream. For the past year or so I have been hearing great things about this CC cream and that BB cream but to be honest I didn’t really know what they were and I was too comfortable with my makeup routine to go about changing it.
But then it happened! Horrors or horrors I ran out of my daily foundation half way through my face right before having to run out the door to work. As is Murphy’s law it happened on a morning that I was running slightly late so there was really nothing to do about it but take it off and go without makeup for the day. While no one at work noticed my lack of makeup and if they did they were much too kind to say anything, I spent my entire lunch break researching which foundation I would try next to replace my very loved Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation. As much as I loved using it, it was time for a change.
I had heard magical things of La Roche Posay Rosaliac CC Cream. I am prone to read skin with almost permanent rosy cheeks so I decided to give this product directly marketed at Rosaliac suffers a go. The aim of this CC cream is to cover and colour correct sensitive skin prone to all types of redness, whether occasional or persistent, dispersed or localised. It comes in one colour tone that blends naturally into fair to medium skin and conceals to correct the appearance of shades of redness.
So without further ado I plunged myself into the world of the CC cream and I must admit it wasn’t nearly as scary as I thought it would be. This cream gives a great light coverage, perfect for day time. It also buffs out any imperfections or blemishes. It doesn’t quite correct my rosy cheeks (there is a marked improvement though) but to be honest I find that very little does and on the plus side I don’t need to wear blush.
The one thing I don’t like about this cream and it will probably be true about all creams of this type is the fact that you put it on with your hands. I am not a fan of using my hands for applying any makeup but when I tried using a brush it just didn’t give the same flawless finish. It also comes in only one shade. It just happens to be perfect for my skin tone but I have heard that on some of you paler ladies out there it is a bit dark so that is something to watch out for. This product is in the pricier range at €22.50 but to be honest it is well worth it. I am so glad I gave this a go and will definitely look into repurchasing it when I run out.
