Product Review: Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream
My search for a cc cream has ended. After my beloved NYX CC cream got discontinued, I was upset. I search every single place in the U.S. to find a CC cream that agrees with my rosacea. My rosacea is very complicated. It's very dry, it has a lot of texture when it is try, and it can be very red. Most foundations and CC creams don't normally work with my skin. They cling to my dry spots and shows my fine lines. I have tried expensive brands like IT Cosmetics and Bareminerals. I got annoyed wasting money on expensive brands, that I started trying them on in the store. The Ulta and Sephora girls had fun with my face and tried everything on it. I finally just said screw it and I searched on Amazon. I found this product for $16.00usd.
I always add a moisturizer first before using this product, because my face is very dry. I'm also afraid my dry patches will show. I apply this CC cream with my finger tips and I dab a little around my nose, on my forehead, and on my chin. I blend it out and around my chin and down my neck. I haven't tried applying this with a brush or a beauty blender. It might work better for you that way or it may not. I just feel using my finger tips is way easier to apply. This product is more on the liquid side compared to other CC creams. At first, I thought it was gunna be oily on my face. It dries on super quickly after blending it out and my face feels hydrated while wearing it. It's not oily and it has not caused breakouts for me.
This product is from France and it only comes in four shades. At first, I thought it would be a little dark for me. Once applied, it really does blend in with your skin tone. The product claims to have three color correcting pigments in it and 24hr hydration. I will back them up on the hydration. This stuff is very hydrating enough with my super dry skin. It claims to have a apricot color to hide fatigue, green to conceal redness, and white to cover dark spots. I fully believe this product does have those qualities about it. It also has a SPF 15 from UVA and UVB rays which I'm so glad about, because every time I apply a sunscreen, it is always too thick for me. According to CosDna and Skincarisma, the ingredients aren't great. It says there are a few ingredients that contain silicones and allergens, but there are also good ingredients that contain anti-aging, wound healing, and UV protection. Apparently, there are two ingredients in it that are bad for sensitive skin, but there are two good ingredients for dry skin. It does contain Vitamin E, which can cause acne with some people, but for me it doesn't. I will continue to use this product. I will recommend this product to people with imperfections. This is not a paid review or advertisement. This is a open and honest review and I have used this product for two months. I really hope you find something for you and maybe this product may work for you.
