LORAC CC Cream is new for this summer and it comes in three shades: CC1, CC2, CC3.

This CC Cream (Color Correcting Cream) is a six in one product that does the following:

  • Specially tinted to color correct redness, discoloration and imperfections
  • Red Seaweed naturally primes
  • Hyaluronic Acid moisturizes and helps diminish the appearance of fine lines
  • Vitamin C helps brighten

  • Anti-aging antioxidants of Vitamins A & E, Green and White Tea help skin look healthy and youthful

You can wear it by itself or under a foundation if you desire more coverage.

CC1 (I think)

Ok so the weird thing is my tube isn’t labeled anywhere on it as to what shade it is. Could be because it’s a press sample and they hadn’t labeled it yet. I believe it’s the lightest shade CC1 though.

The shade itself once blended in works with my skin tone nicely. Blends right in, looks like a good match. But I had some issues with the finish. When I applied it over a moisturizer with SPF, as I always do, it did some weird texture things. First it seemed to settle into my pores and completely highlight them with dots of the color! Second, once I rubbed it in a bit, it started to ball up. Not good.

So then I tried it with nothing on my face and it worked out better. It blended in easily, no balling up, no weird texture. It does feel a little on the dry side to me.

All in all though it doesn’t really do much for me. Yes it hides pores and some red areas, etc. but it just kind of looks like a tinted primer that isn’t all that moisturizing. Plus I can’t wear it over my SPF moisturizer, so that is a huge negative for me personally.

Overall: Not completely won over by this. When used alone it does help my skin look slightly better, but it’s not moisturizing enough, doesn’t have enough coverage and no SPF. This is the third CC Cream I have tried and I have yet to be impressed much!
