H2O+ CC Cream Broad Spectrum in Fair/Light

Wednesday, February 18, 2015

I have reviewed a few of CC Creams in the past (Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream, MAC Prep+Prime CC Cream, ANEW 15-in-1 CC Cream) and so far I have been impressed with how they work on me. Being one of those women who suffer from weird skin tones. I have a pinkish-yellowish skin tone so you can imagine how confusing that would be when choosing foundations.

Just like BB Creams, the CC Cream has a lot of benefits so it's also an all-in-one cream: anti-aging, sunblock, moisturizer, color correcting, gives coverage, etc. H2O Plus is a skin care brand that uses stuff from the sea that benefits the skin to the maximum. I have always believed in this brand, one it being something natural, and secondly, I love the smell of their products.

I received this CC Cream from H2O last year and I finally had the chance to review it! Yay! I have been dying to try it out but my line up for review was just so crazy! I have been using this CC Cream for a few days now and I must say that I am very happy with the results.

I'm thankful that I received a shade that is perfect for my skin tone, Fair/Light. It does come also in Light/Medium but I think this is quite a perfect match for me. I wasn't worried too because I know that CC Creams adjust to your skin tone so it really was just a matter of choosing  shade whether you are light or medium. I am guessing, I am definitely on the Fair/Light side.
It comes in a not-so conventional pump bottle that CC Creams usually come in. Usually they just come with tubes so you would have to play it by ear on how much you should squeeze out of that tube! Frankly, I always end up with too much.
I still ended up scratching my head on the ingredients list with only a handful of ingredients that I know of. But I learned that this product doesn't contain any harmful ingredients that can be harful for pregnant women.

Made mostly with water, that's what this skin care brand is all about. You must be wondering if this skin care line would make people with dry skin more dry because it's water-based, the answer is no, it actually contains a lot of skin benefiting ingredients that will moisturize and tame dry skin. I mean, it did moisturize my preggy (flaky!) dry skin!
I am happy to inform you that this CC Cream comes with a pump! I am always extra happy when products come with pumps. That means that you can definitely measure the amount of product you are dispensing every time you use it, plus no double dipping on the pot or the tip of your tube.
This is one pump. It was more than enough to cover my entire face, and another half pump to apply on my neck. Don't forget your neck everyone! You don't want to look like a floating head!
I love how it disappears on the skin, and it really feels light weight. At first I thought it kind of looked a little bit peachy and might make my skin look grey. But surprisingly enough, it adapted and adjusted to my skin tone.
It made my skin look brighter and adjusted the yellow and pink tones to an even canvas.
And because it was a lazy day just going to the supermarket and running some errands, I just set that with my Maybelline White SuperFresh pressed powder, and Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer in Watermelon on my lips.

  2. Wow this has really good coverage. I share your concern on having weird skin tone. Sometimes I think I am pink and sometimes yellow. Does this fall into neutral? hehe

  3. It gives a good coverage for fair skinned. I think it really feels light to skin when I clearly check your photo. :) This one seems to be a makeup and skincare on one while its labeled 'Non-commedogenic'. :)
