Physicians Formula Organic Wear CC Color Correction Cream Review & Swatches
Physicians Formula Organic Wear CC Color Correction Cream is one of two new CC Creams that the brand is launching for Spring 2014 which will add the the permanent collection.
This CC Cream is formulated with an SPF 20 and is supposedly 100% free of harsh chemicals, preservatives, parabens, synthetic fragrances, and colors and is also 100% Cruelty Free.
Take a look
Physicians Formula Organic Wear CC Color Correction Cream is available in a Light and Light/Medium shade selection. This is formulated with natural and organic ingredients according to the brand to brighten and perfect while hydrating and protecting. It supposedly has organic lemon to help reduce dullness and brighten skin as well as light reflecting pigments that blur the imperfections as well as blue agave for moisture and acai palm which improves the surface of skin so moisture locks in.
Reading the box it sounds like an absolute dream product.
Personally, thus far, many US CC Cream formulas are terribly disappointing to me. CC Cream is typically available in a single white self adjusting shade in Asia and is less pigmented than a BB Cream formula and acts to correct skin which can be used alone or under your favorite BB Cream.
In the US one of two different things happened with CC Creams which is brands either went beefier with the formula and they got more pigmented or the brands went even lighter with the texture so you get very sheer color without any true correcting abilities.
This is the case with Physicians Formula Organic Wear CC Color Correction Cream, it’s just too sheer. I grabbed up the Light/Medium and it is suitable for medium and tanned tones as it is quite sheer and the color is quite dark, dunno they they don’t just call it Medium.
I don’t love the texture on this. It feels a bit too runny to me. It has a gel-like consistency but the watery texture feels like it separated somehow and gives the formula a more runny look. It absorbs easily when applied, doesn’t accentuate dry areas on my face, and dries down to a satin finish with a slight hydrating feel when first applied. The shade really dulls out my skin though! I already have duller, drier skin and this just adds to that appearance and doesn’t brighten it or produce a more healthy appearance. It also wears an extremely short time, my skin just sucks it up so I get about an hour in before the color just fades away.
It really failed for me at the basic elements of a CC Cream. It didn’t even my skin tone, didn’t really correct due to sheerness of the product, and just didn’t give me an overall good finish.
This formula just feels like a step down from a tinted moisturizer.
Overall, I think Physicians Formula Organic Wear CC Color Correction Cream really misses the mark as a CC Cream. A good CC should give you a your skin but better finish but this barely hydrates never mind perfecting or even evening out skin tone.
You might be safe skipping it.
