YSL Forever Light Creator CC

The new YSL CC Creme Forever Light Creator is the third part of the Light Creator series (with a lotion and a serum having previously launched). Because they’re so heavily entrenched as part of the Light Creator series, with the implication being that you need to use the lotion and the serum as well, it’s a little bit of a hard sell that I’m not buying.

There’s also the promise that after one week of use YSL Forever Light Creator CC Creme, skin is visible improved with more luminosity, with a reduction in spots, pores and fine lines. After one month, the claim is that skin imperfections are reduced by 98%. Now, I haven’t put it to the week test, never mind the month, but that is an off-the-scale claim.

I’ve not completely rubbed the product into my arm so that you can see the colour variants, but when I tested the apricot colour on my face, it gave excellent coverage and it does, to my mind, fall into the CC category as far as coverage goes. It’s a beautifully light fluid; easy to apply and sits comfortably on the skin. Three shades, lavender, apricot and rose address different skin issues. Rose for fresher looking skin, apricot to correct uneven tone and give an instant healthy glow and lavender to give skin natural looking radiance. Where the dividing line comes between fresher looking skin and natural looking radiance is anyone’s guess.

I’m a bit confused by this – it’s got all the makings of a beautiful CC cream and yet the claims are huge.  The CCs are already available and they’re £30 each.
