First it was BB creams and then the beauty world moved on to CC creams. Gimmicky? Probably. Great for everyday use? Definitely. But most importantly, are they worth it? I've tried out a few CC Creams and today I present to you the battle of two very popular CC Creams - the Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream VS the Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream SPF 30.
In the blue corner we have the Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream which, I am pretty smitten with. A little of this goes a long way and it can easily be applied using your fingers. It evens out your skin tone (doing a great job of hiding the pesky redness I get in my cheeks), has an SPF of 15 included, feels light weight on the skin and is super affordable with a drugstore price tag. Lisa Eldridge loves this so how can you not?
In the red corner we have the Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream which I like to call the more expensive, higher coverage and higher SPF version of the Bourjois alternative. I find this is best applied with a brush to give an even finish due to its heavier texture leaving you with a healthy, dewy finish. My one issue with this product is that I can feel it sitting on my skin initially unlike with the Bourjois CC Cream.
The Verdict? These are great for everyday wear as they have SPF included and are super easy to apply. Ultimately, the Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream is the winner for me though!
Have you tried either of these products? Are you a CC cream fan? Let me know in the comments below.
