The new Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream Hydrating Colour Corrector Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is a pleasant surprise indeed. I’ve been testing this for the past month and I must say it impressed me as much as Clinique’s BB Cream did.
If you’re shopping CC Creams at the moment and you’re just starting to get on board with this new trend I do recommend a trip to your Clinique counter to check this out. It’s a promising product!
Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream Hydrating Colour Corrector ($35) is available in six shades. This is a natural, healthy finish CC Cream that improves on already good skin. With a gel-like texture and a quick absorbing formula this sports an SPF 30 for basic sun protection and offers sheerer breathable coverage.
The water based formula is absolutely delightful to apply and use. The formula has a thicker, creamier texture with a gel-like consistency that gives skin a nice bit of moisture as it corrects. It is a sheerer formula so you’re not looking at full coverage it will however, even out skin tone, conceal minor redness, and perfect already good skin. I think of it as a my skin but with a better finish! If you’ve always wanted a foundation product that perfects yet still manages to look like your own skin, offering lightweight coverage this is surely the product for you.
Colour correcting optics act to aid a slew of different complexion issues like dullness, redness, swallow or yellow skin, or even blotchy redness. The cream corrects these issues and leaves behind perfected skin. I personally suffer from duller skin and this eases that creating a more brighter, healthier appearance.
I was concerned that Clinique might go the glowing or highlighter route with their CC Cream. It seems that many of the CC Creams releasing in the US are leaning towards being 2 parts highlighter and 1 part foundation product. No worries here though this is natural coverage with a good for you formula that does not contain shimmer, sparkle, or any glow-y bits and bobs. It acts more like a second skin product that provides moisture, minimal color correcting coverage, and basic SPF protection.
Clinique successfully created a product that allows your skin to look its best without overshadowing it with anything else. Think of it as a little helping hand to take already good skin and make it great.
Love this stuff!
Do try it, I think you’ll find it’s the perfect lightweight product for Summer coverage!
P.S. The shades seem to run quite dark so I’d suggest going to a counter to get fitted correctly but it is also available online at Clinique.com if you know which shade would suit you!
If you tried it, I’d love to hear your thoughts.
