Lately, a close Beauty Blogger colleague commended my skin and my makeup-that made me smile because that comment was proof that my religious skin care is finally paying off, plus it's nice to get a positive comment on your makeup from a makeup artist. :D She then asked what foundation I'm using and I told her that I'm just wearing CC Cream-she was surprised because she thought I had full coverage on!
So which CC Cream was I using? Olay Total Effects Pore Minimizing CC Cream-this 'Blurring Tool' covers skin with a pillowy coverage that keeps enlarged pores temporarily out of sight, thus giving your skin a smoother appearance.
OLAY TOTAL EFFECTS PORE MINIMIZING CC CREAM IN DETAIL
This product promises to color, correct, and protect skin with Broad Spectrum SPF 15-it also promises to yield an airbrushed finish and contains 7-in-1 benefits in a light, oil- free formula.
More about this smoothing and soothing base after the jump!
The products come in a generous 50g tube. The moment I held these products, they feel more like skin care than make-up to me. Idk, perhaps due to the look and feel of the packaging? You won't suspect that these are makeup at first glance!
So this product only has two shades: Light for fair to light skin tones and Medium for medium to medium-dark skin tones, and both have a neutral undertone-texture is plush, bouncy, and soft, has a whipped consistency, and practically goes well with any brush. It has no scent and that's always a great plus for me and for everyone (although I don't mind having a bit of fragrance in my face bases)!
OLAY TOTAL EFFECTS PORE MINIMIZING CC CREAM IN ACTION
Two layers of the CC Cream in Medium
It glides on nicely and evenly on the skin, definitely zero streakiness. One time, I observed this product closely while I was applying it and saw that it actually creates a sheer barrier on the skin, which is the reason why it gives your skin this 'blur', although it's pretty sheer to blur out face bumps and discolorations-on enlarged pores, it works great! Does the 'barrier' feel heavy on the skin? Not at all because this product is very lightweight and oil- free! I also read that this product promises to reduce pore appearance, but of course, that will happen if you use it continuously.
This product even doubles as a moisturizer so no need to use a separate one, unless you have very dry skin. However, I don't feel that it controls oil really well, but it doesn't turn me into an oil mine even if the weather is warm. That said, it's good for those with normal, combination oily-normal, and slightly dry skin who need a bit more moisture from a face base. I also don't think it can be called a CC Cream-it's more of a tinted moisturizer or BB Cream because it cannot conceal deeper discolorations. Nonetheless, it works pretty fine.
At this point, my skin's at its best beautiful except for enlarged pores so I'm currently using light bases like this one-I honor my skin this way: If it's looking good, I show it off.
If you've got pretty nice skin, this product would be great to try because it's light and gives your skin that extra smoothness.
