I've suffered from redness on my face for as long as I remember so whenever a new product is released that states that it reduces redness or it's appearance I have to check it out! Bourjois is one of my favourite drug store brands and I adore their Healthy Mix foundation so I was super excited to hear that they were releasing the Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream! Bourjois says that this CC cream contains three colour correcting pigments which help to even out skin tone and keeps the skin hydrated. Apricot helps reduce the look of fatigue, green pigments help reduce the appearance of redness and white reduces the appearance of dark spots.

I've called this review a 'first impressions' as I've only used it a couple of times, but I'm going to do an updated review in a month or two. The Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream has been released in four colours and I went for the palest shade, Ivory. This is a good match for me, although it could do with being a tiny bit lighter, but I think it will be a perfect match in the summer. It's possibly a tiny bit too dark for any of you girls out there with very pale skin. The consistency of this product is a lot thinner than most foundations, though I suppose that is to be expected as this technically isn't a foundation. The consistency can be a little difficult to work with but it's easier to get used to. Because of the consistency I found it better to apply using my fingers and it applies beautifully this way. It really helps it sink it to the skin and blends seamlessly. In all honest I wasn't expecting much from the coverage as for my redness I always use higher coverage foundations however, I was pleasantly surprised. It covered all my imperfections well and there was only a small amount of redness creeping through. It wasn't anything that really bothered me very much but it I wanted flawless looking skin I would go for a foundation rather than this CC cream. Although I really like this product so far it's let me down when it comes to my dry skin. I've currently suffering from eczema and dry patches on my face and found this really clung to any of these patches. I found this surprising as Bourjois says it's hydrating but I didn't find this at all. I'm hoping that once my skin is better and the days are warmer it won't cling so badly as I love everything else about it. I will be back with an updated review once it's warmer :)

Have you tried this product? What are your thoughts?

  2. Ooo this product sounds really good!
    And maybe a good 'foundation' for summer time if it's lighter :)
    Great review.
