I gave this product a quick try this morning.. I have to say I’ve been putting it off because I’ve found the CC I like the best and don’t feel terribly tempted to look for any others. However, the USP of this one is that it’s mattifying and tamps down shine, being specifically made for oily skin types.
I used it on one side of my face only, and have to say that never mind the mattifying – it’s pretty darn good at evening out skin tone. It even tackled my under-eye circles. Impressive. There’s not any real level of coverage although it has a light tint so this would be a primer only or if you’re really blessed with great skin, then the lightest of coverages.
It’s got SPF 30 and actively controls melanin production as well as slowing down sebum production. I’m not oily really, and if it comes anywhere it’s over my nose, so I definitely had a shine -free day. I’m the wrong skin type for this product – I’m not looking for oil control benefits, but I’m keeping this in my drawer as a very useful pepper-upper for when I’m looking tired and wan. If you’re oily and you want the SPF, mattifying and unifying effect, then I’d have to recommend.
