L'Oreal Visible Lift CC Cream
L'Oreal has entered the world of CC Creams with the new Visible Lift CC Cream.
I've mentioned many times how much I love BB Creams and I am just starting to explore CC Creams, just like you might be. I've heard CCs are usually lighter coverage than BB but so far that hasn't proved true, until now.
Visible Lift CC Cream is a sheer formula with only a tinge of pigment in the light/ medium shade I have . L'Oreal says there are "sheer color capsules" in there and you can see them in the close up photo. It does help to make skin a little more perfected, more in the way a primer might work. The biggest benefit here is the moisture. With shea butter and mineral oil you get a lot of hydration. The feel on skin is light, it's not heavy but will not work for oily skins .
There is SPF of 20 using chemical sunscreens as well as vitamin C and calcium for antioxidants.
One of my favorite things, and I expect many agree, about BB Cream is their multitasking . When you are hurried having one product to do so much is great. Visible Lift CC Cream gets in that multitasking as well, albeit a little differently. It will make a nice canvas for makeup and provides a base, moderate SPF and major moisture in one step. While I do enjoy the coverage of my BBs, if you want something that does many things but with barely there coverage than this CC might be for you.
L'Oreal Visible Lift CC Cream is due in July but available at some stores now.
Retail is $ 12.95 with shades light/medium or medium/deep.
