I was intrigued by CC cream ever since the craze all started and I was thrilled that my favourite drugstore foundation brand Bourjois has launched one. My holy grail drugstore foundation is the Bourjois healthy mix serum (Review here if interested) therefore I had high expectations of this CC cream.

Recently, my skin has been a little dry and patchy maybe due to my skin type changing or the weather taking its toll so I wanted to try a more moisturising formulation to not only help keep my skin hydrated, but to give it a more natural lightweight finish ready for the summer. I swatched this product on the back of my hand and although the consistency was watery and thin, the coverage was pretty good and easy to blend. 

The CC cream smells like all the other Bourjois foundations; a light florally scent, which I'm not too bothered about and I even quite like it to be honest. The tube is plastic and so easy to carry around when travelling and it doesn't take up much space. As a nursing student, it is so important to have a foundation that stays put throughout the day as I do not usually have time to touch up or powder and i must say that this foundation really does stay put and doesn't melt off my face as quickly as i thought. Obviously with my oily skin, i did need to use a finishing powder on top of it and touched up every 5-6 hours when my shine came through, but I really did like the look that it gave my skin.

The coverage is not only good, it also looks really natural and dewy which i think is perfect for summer. Using this has helped with my dry patches on my face as it does promise 24 hours hyrdation, although i don't have this on my face for that period of time to actually know whether it does or not. For under £10, I cannot fault this product and i have been using this non stop for the past several weeks as i have been waking up early and this product is a life saver for getting ready quick in the morning.

Have you tried any CC creams?
