Review: Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream Hydrating Colour Corrector Broad Spectrum SPF 30

On May 26, 2013 by Michelle Ng

Hi all!

 

Available from mid May, Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream Hydrating Colour Corrector Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is the latest CC Cream that has arrived in the market. The new CC Cream is an instant complexion perfector designed to enhance skin’s natural radiance, giving skin a lasting hydration while renewing skin’s natural radiance.

One simple step for glowing skin. Lightweight formula instantly colour corrects a range of complexion concerns-redness, dullness, sallowness-so all you see is a healthy-looking glow. Oil-free hydration and sunscreen mean a more flawless look tomorrow, too.

An oil-free, color-correcting, perfecting formula to create a natural glow while hydrating and protecting the skin.

What is the difference between CC creams and BB creams?

Having owned both CC creams and BB creams, one obvious difference is the finish in the creams. BB creams are definitely more matte and provides a lesser coverage. However, despite the coverage, CC creams are able to even out your skin tone as well. In my personal opinion, I prefer CC creams to BB creams because of the lighter texture.

Like most CC or BB creams out there, Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream has a squeeze tip and this bottle is so light, you can just throw it into your bag with minimal addition weight to your baggage plus you need not worry about any spillage!

Shades:

The shade that I have here with me is Natural Fair which is for very fair to fair skin tones.

When blended out:

Being a NC15, natural fair is just a wee tad darker than my natural skin tone. However, since this has a light coverage, it can be easily blended into the skin.

Benefits:

  • Colour Correction to give skin instant radiance and glow
  • Hydration
  • Protection from UVA/UVB

Key Ingredients:

  • Aloe Barbadensis leaf Water
  • Hyaluronic Acid
  • Trehalose and Sorbitol
  • Vitamin E

Overall review:

On its own, it provides a sheer coverage for your skin, covering up redness and evening out your skin tone. On top of that, it provides moisture to your face like a moisturizer. This product would be best for ladies who have pretty good skin and just need something to even out their skin tone and providing sufficient hydration to the skin.

Personally, I love using this CC cream mixed in with my matte medium to full coverage foundation such as my Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation. They complement each other perfectly. Whilst the CC cream provides moisture, it thins out my EL foundation to a lighter consistency. This mixture provides a natural finish to my skin. LOVES!

The main benefit to this CC cream is of course the sun protection it provides. With the weather being so hot these few days, this cream can double up as your sunscreen. I would say this CC cream is worth giving a try!

Retail Price: S$53 for 40ml

Available at all Clinique counters from mid May 2013.
