Happy Friday & hope you all had an awesome week 🙂 I had a really busy week and I am glad I get to catch up with things during the weekend… and of course if you did not see, I am doing a GIVEAWAY! so make sure to check that out HERE.. the rules to enter are so simple and open to everyone internationally… Trust me its worth it 🙂
On to my review… I have been in love with this CC Cream from Pacifica... honestly I had no idea what the hell a CC cream even was or what the difference was between this and a BB Cream! but now its all clear!!!
Difference between BB & CC Cream:
BB Cream: BB” stands for “Blemish Balm” (blemish referring to any skin imperfection, not just breakouts) BB creams provide coverage with added skin care benefits like SPF and anti-oxidants…They’re lighter than foundation but heavier than tinted moisturizers.
CC Creams: CC generally stands for “color correcting” whereas BB creams are like lighter foundation with a few skin care benefits thrown in. CC cream is a color corrector and will be lighter on the skin than BB Creams.
well there you go… in case you didn’t know like me now you do!!! I honestly picked up the CC cream just because I saw the words Radiant Foundation on it and then later figured out what it actually was! haha…
well on to my Pacifica Ultra CC Cream Radiant Foundation I was not expecting much out of this CC Cream when I bought it because I just didn’t know anything about it!!! My skin is fairly dry, I would say I have some discoloration ( so it worked out! haha) but thankfully so far no breakouts or anything…
well here an there maybe but not enough to need heavy foundation for… so I just wanted something to make me look a little bit more fresh when I needed to… well I found it and without sounding like i am full of myself it really did make my skin look radiant!!
It is light on the skin so I don’t feel like I have a TON of makeup on ( which I hate) it looks so natural that you can barely tell you are even wearing anything, but it gives this put together subtle glow feel which is just what I was looking for, so pleasantly surprised and forever found a CC cream that I love 🙂 oh and it smells like COCONUTS and jasmine flowers or something, smells GREAT! 😀
I got the Natural/Medium color, since I am a bit on the olive side.. and it matched my squinting perfectly! I was so surprised at how accurate it was!!! I love this for an everyday look, I’ve just been wearing it as moisturizer and it has SPF 17 as well 🙂
I blended it to the bottom part of my hand, so you should see the difference.. its slightly illuminated…subtle but awesome 🙂
and of course as usually this Brand is 100% Cruelty free and Vegan 😀
There you go guys, hope you found this useful! I haven’t compared too many CC creams to each other but I have had BB Creams in the past and really prefer this to any of them… and honestly prefer it to my foundation!
as a disclaimer .. not affiliated with this Brand at all and have had no contact with them, I just loved this product and I bought it from the heath food store ” Sprouts” not sure if you have one near you.. but I have also seen this sold in Wholefoods and Target 🙂
as always YOU’RE WELCOME 😉
Love & Peace
