Correct and perfect your complexion in one quick sweep of a light and hydrating cream product with the Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream.

Bourjois CC Cream Review Colour Correcting cream uses three colour correcting pigments to give skin a fresh and luminous glow, plus there’s an SPF15 in the formula too.

What the Bourjois CC Cream does

  • Colour corrects and perfects your complexion
  • Apricot is there for an anti-fatigue effect
  • Green tones for anti-redness
  • White tones for anti-dark spots
  • SPF15

The CC Cream from Bourjois is lightweight and applies easily and beautifully with a super smooth application.

The product is an oil-free formula which comes in four shades, which is a bit of a shame. But a lot more than usual CC creams we’re used to seeing in the drugstore.

The effect it has on the skin

Simply work the Bourjois CC Cream into the skin with your fingers, starting at the centre of the face and blending outwards. It gives a good light to medium coverage, and you get a flawless yet natural finish on the skin.

The product itself is a little runny, so only disperse a little from the tube at a time because you might end up with a lot of waste. There is a slight hint of smell, but nothing overpowering, and definitely not as scented at the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation.

The CC Cream leaves you with a semi matte finish, so it’s great for all skin types really. It’s not at all drying, but isn’t at all slippery that it would make oily skins look shiny. When you smooth it into the skin, it looks natural and healthy, and doesn’t settle into fine lines either.

The downside to the CC Cream is that it’s not going to last all day, you might find that you want a retouch later in the day. And those with oily skin types might find themselves reaching for a powder touch up or blotting paper, but depending on what you’re doing and how much you touch your face, you’ll probably find that it will last around six to eight hours.
