After the whole BB craze (it kinda came and went and didn’t change my life) I wasn’t planning on falling for the CC craze BUT my friend introduced me to Olay Regenerist CC Cream and you know what, I’ve fallen.
Olay Regenerist CC Complexion Corrector Cream is a unique 3-in-1 swirly system blending serum, SPF 15 moisturiser and sheer foundation. This anti-ageing CC Cream instantly perfects complexion, hydrates skin, reduces the look of wrinkles and minimises the appearance of dark spot. It’s creamy, yet has a light fluffy feel that melts into the skin, instantly plumping and perfecting complexion. It reduces redness and imperfections and even makes my open pores less visible.
It’s exactly what January skin needs. I don’t feel like my skin is being covered or caked and because it’s one third serum it’s actually helping my skin repair itself. It’s ideal for a no-make-up, natural look, and if you required more coverage you can layer it under your usual foundation. I’m finding the sheer coverage works fine for me with a little added concealer to cover dark bags and spots. Worn alone its staying powers isn't as strong as a foundation's - it goes a good 6-7 hours before the fade and dreaded shine creep in. But it layers well if you need a touch up and I set mine with some MAC blot powder (review here).
Available in 3 shades Light, Medium and Dark. I’ve got the so called darkest skin tone, which is working well for me (MAC NC30 for reference) and with smart mineral pigments it adapts to match your colouring... like magic! It retails for £24.99, which I initially thought was pricey for Olay, BUT it’s a generous 50ml bottle (regular foundation is 30ml) and given that it’s packed with serums and moisturisers it’s actually quite reasonable.
Dewy, natural and actually good for your skin... it ticks my boxes. Currently £19.99 Boots here
