Physicians Formula Super CC Color-Correction + Care All-Over Blur CC Cream ($14.95) is a new all-in-one moisturizer, primer, foundation and SPF that blurs imperfections, smooths, and corrects skin.
Let’s take a look!
Physicians Formula Super CC Color-Correction + Care All-Over Blur CC Cream is available in a single shade selection of Light/Medium and comes housed in a tube with an attached pump. This is formulated with a host of benefits and promises a multitasking formula that preps, primes, acts to protect skin with SPF 30, corrects, and even acts as foundation that blurs pores and imperfection while smoothing skin. They market it as something that can be worn alone or under makeup as a base.
Apparently it contains 3 color correcting pigments of green to address redness, pink to brighten and illuminate skin, and yellow to correct blue imperfections as well as warm up skin tones. It’s one shade so you can’t really see these color correcting pigments and it comes in a single shade of golden yellow beige. It’s actually a color that doesn’t work well for me as it seems to add further dullness to my already dull skin even though it applies fairly sheer.
This promises a little too many things and delivers on very few. For me it isn’t really a CC Cream especially if you’re likening it to CC Creams from Korea which are way more pigmented. I’d say it was a face primer formula at beast as although you can’t see it in my swatches the texture has a silicon-like consistency that will be suitable for oily skin or those with visible pores. I think it has the potential to blur the appearance of small visible pores and perhaps curb a little bit of shine. Aside from this I wouldn’t say it does much else.
This can’t act as a foundation as it isn’t pigmented enough to do so nor does it work well to correct the issues it supposedly addresses such as redness. I personally didn’t like the formula as it lays on top of my drier skin in a weird way. It kinda feels rough going on, yeah, don’t ask me what I even mean by that but it feels a little weird going on. I was worried it would start pilling but it didn’t. However, it’s a product that you know is there. It isn’t necessarily heavy or mask-like just, kinda sits there, on top of my skin in an unnatural way. I wouldn’t say this extended the wear of my foundation even though I used it as a facial primer.
All in all Physicians Formula Super CC Color-Correction + Care All-Over Blur CC Cream just seems pointless to me. I didn’t get the correcting benefits, didn’t feel it acts well as either a primer or a moisturizer (this does not feel hydrating to me), and I definitely wouldn’t say it can act as a foundation. The formula just wasn’t agreeing with me and although it promises a lot, it delivers nothing.
