Today, I wanted to talk about my favorite CC cream. It’s the Clinique Moisture Surge CC cream. I love this because it’s super lightweight on your face, perfect for when you want that no-makeup/natural look. CC stands for a color correcting, and this cream does that for me.
It helps even out my skin color and lessen the redness I have. It is quite opaque , so if you’re looking for more coverage, I wouldn’t suggest this. The moisture it provides is amazing. I love using this on super cold days, because my face tends to get flaky, because it gets so dry from the wind and such, even with a regular moisturizer on.
This is an oil-free CC cream, but if you do have oily skin, I wouldn’t suggest it, unless you have a super good setting powder. The reason for that is because it is meant to moisturize your skin, and the finishing look is a dewy/glowy type of finish.
When you have oily skin, this might make you too shiny. In the picture above, (sorry I know it’s not the sharpest quality), you can see the glow it gives, but still keeps it looking natural. I usually just apply some powder on my cheeks and on the corners of my nose, to lessen the dewy look a little bit. Using this out in the sun is great because it has 30 spf. Also, the light coverage and glowy natural look is perfect for the summer, when you just don’t want to wear a lot of makeup.
It is a little pricey. It’s $37.00 at the Belk counter. There is 1.4 fl. oz of the product, and a little goes a long way. Since I usually just use it for the “natural look”, I don’t really put too much of it on. I’ve been using this product for about 3 years and one usually lasts me about half a year. I feel like the price is alright, seeing as it lasts that long and actually works.
Let me know if you guys have tried it or if you have any questions!
Thanks for reading!
