Hello! Today I’m reviewing Studio Gear Hydrating CC Cream. This is actually the first CC cream that I’ve tried. I believe the difference between CC cream and BB cream is that CC cream is color correcting.
Hydrating CC Cream transforms and enhances your complexion in an incredibly light, smooth formula. This foundation simultaneously fights aging, retains moisture, and covers and treats blemishes with a non-oily, perfectly radiant finish.
Prevents fine lines and wrinkles with collagen-building ingredients
Restores skin elasticity by promoting moisture retention
Brightens and illuminates skin with a non-oily, complete coverage application
This CC cream starts out white, and develops color as it is blended into the skin. The texture of this is fantastic. It’s very lightweight, soft, and thin. When I blend this into my skin, I can’t even tell that I’m wearing it!
Now for the claims- this product certainly sounds like a miracle worker, doesn’t it? Let’s just take it one at a time:
Prevents fine lines and wrinkles with collagen-building ingredients- I’m going to remain neutral on this one, because I’m not quite sure how to gauge if it is preventing fine lines.
Restores skin elasticity by promoting moisture retention– I will agree with this one. My skin feels very hydrated when I wear this; I even tested it without wearing a moisturizer beforehand, and it works.
Brightens and illuminates skin with a non-oily, complete coverage application- I think this is true, at least for me. The product is not oily at all, and it evens out my complexion nicely. It isn’t super full coverage though, so someone who wants more coverage may not find that this is enough for them.
Wearing Studio Gear CC cream, no powder or concealer
I really like this CC cream and have been reaching for it daily lately. It’s just one of those perfectly effortless makeup products! The finish is a medium satin finish; I wouldn’t call it “dewy” or “luminous”. It’s simply natural looking, like skin.
This CC cream is available in three shades: Linen, Natural, and Wheat, so the shade range isn’t that great, which is one negative. I have the shade Natural, which worked as a great match for me, and is a light to medium shade.
Studio Gear Cosmetics CC cream is available for $34 from the Studio Gear website. You can get 10% off with the code: bloggercc.
