Ole Henriksen Perfect Truth CC Eye Creme Review & Swatches

Ole Henriksen Perfect Truth CC Eye Creme

Ole Henriksen Perfect Truth CC Eye Creme targets the CC Cream market for eyes! Perfect Truth CC Eye Creme Broad Spectrum SPF 15 is one of the first CC Creams for your eyes that I’ve seen launch in the US.

I must admit I was thrilled by the idea of this being a concealer junkie and all!

This multitasking eye cream promises to correct problem areas under the eye while illuminating, protecting, and getting you your daily dose of moisture with five sources of Vitamin C and tripeptide-5 blended with ceremides and odium hyaloranate to reduce fine lines while evening out skin tone.

Let’s take a look!

Pur Minerals CC Cream Review & Swatches

Pur Minerals CC Cream

Pur Minerals CC Cream is a new color complexion correction CC Cream formula with a broad spectrum SPF 40 that recently launched in four shades. Like many brands Pur Minerals skipped over the BB Cream option and headed straight into a CC Cream formula.

Pur Minerals does hold the market for highest SPF offerings as many of these US CC Creams are a minimal SPF of 20-30 but not much higher. This in itself makes the formula special.

Let’s have a look!

Sephora Skin Perfect CC Cream Review & Swatches

Sephora Skin Perfect CC Cream SPF 20

Sephora Skin Perfect CC Cream SPF 20 ($26) recently launched in six shades. So if you’re one of those folks that might not fit into the self adjusting CC Cream range Sephora’s version will give you a few options for color.

You’ll see a harder push for CC Creams in drugstores come the Fall but right now Summer rules supreme for mid range and higher end brands that are hitting CC Creams hard. Although at the moment the CC Creams I have tried here in the US are nice enough I’m still really liking what I see from Asia and have come across a good deal of great options from our Korean brand friends.

Sephora’s CC Cream option comes as a surprise as I didn’t really expect them to embrace the trend so quickly. They, like many brands, have skipped completely over the BB Cream craze and just headed right into releasing a CC Cream. I was ever so slightly shocked at the $26 price tag I must admit and that rather low SPF 20.
