New to the Clinique counter is Moisture Surge CC Cream Hydrating Colour Corrector SPF 30. It’s supposed to be like “Instagram for your skin” – meaning that it is meant to correct the colour of almost perfect skin. If your skin is ashy, it’ll had the right amount of yellow. Red blotchiness disappears, and sallow skin looks healthier.
Because many products that say they’re going to correct your skin tone just add highlighters to reflect light off imperfections, I’m happy to say that Clinique’s CC cream doesn’t go overboard in that department. This cream is neither shimmery nor highlighting. It’s just a really nice tinted moisturizer with SPF 30 that really does blend into the skin making it look better than it already is.
Because it’s a CC cream, it doesn’t have a lot of coverage like foundation does, but the dewy finish makes skin look healthy and pretty.
The base is a pretty amazing blend of skincare ingredients: aloe water, hyaluronic acid, vitamin E, and UVA/UVB protection. Available in six shades, almost everyone will benefit from using this cream.
And in case you’re wondering: what’s the difference between a CC and BB Cream? A BB cream will have more coverage because it was originally supposed to be used on skin post-opp. A CC cream will have subtle colour correction.
Available at Clinique counters nationwide and at Clinique.com for $39.00.
