Naked Makeup with CliniqueThursday, September 19, 2013
Yay! I'm one of the lucky ones who get to try Clinique's much talked about CC Cream! I am very excited because I have read so much buzz on this wonderful product! So, without further ado, here are my thoughts on Clinique's Moisture Surge CC Cream!
|Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream, PhP 1,850|
"Moisture Surge CC Cream SPF 30/PA+++ is infused with key hydrating ingredients from Clinique’s signature Moisture Surge. Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Water and Hyaluronic Acid instantly provide a refreshing burst of hydration while water-binding agents such as Trehalose and Sorbitol protect skin against changing humidity conditions. Skin is left instantly hydrated for all day comfort."
Ooooh, a formula that incorporates a blend of UV protection (sunscreens), tons of moisturizing properties and Vitamin E to help protect the skin from damaging environmental causes, and keep the skin looking healthy!
It's 100% fragrance free but it doesn't smell so raw. I love that it actually smells pleasant, and not too fragrant.
This is NATURAL FAIR, but the CC Cream is available in 5 different shades that address multiple complexion concerns of each individual person. The breakdown: 3 skin tone shades, and 2 illuminating shades.
SKIN TONE SHADES:
- Natural Fair
- Natural Beige
- Fresh Pink -counteracts dullness and yellowness of the skin.
- Fresh Peach -counters sallowness giving the skin a brighter appearance.
Sealed for your protection.
"Moisture Surge CC Cream is a multi-functional product with a lightweight and refreshing texture that glides on effortlessly, leaving skin soft, smooth and supple. It provides moderate coverage for a natural and radiant finish. Colour stays true throughout the day. Appropriate for all skin types, the formula is oil-free, non- acnegenic, Dermatologist tested and Ophthalmologist tested."
I agree. The texture is beautiful! I love how easily it glides on the skin and it doesn't take long for the cream to "melt" into the skin giving it a nice fine appearance. It really felt like second skin.
Compared to the BB Cream, the formula is thinner and glides on smoothly. Very fine texture that has a silky finish which I absolutely love. When you dot a dollop of product on your hand, the product holds its texture, but it's a little bit more blendable than the thicker texture of a typical BB Cream.
I love finishing BB and CC Creams with loose powder. This is how it looks that is set with powder. I love how my skin looks like it's glowing and smooth! My skin looks radiant and healthy! I am thrilled that Clinique's CC Cream and I were a match made in cosmetics heaven.
