(Review) : Chanel CC Cream 20 Beige

Hello beauty..

CC Cream or Complete Correcting Cream has makeup and skincare benefits. My first and only CC Cream is Chanel CC Cream 20 Beige. I already using BB Cream before, I will review about some products that I used later. 

From Chanel :
A completely original creation. A fusion of skincare and makeup. The double know-how of CHANEL Research and the Makeup Studio. Backed by true expertise regarding the precise needs of Asian women in terms of flawless skin.

With its CHANEL signature, CC Cream combines 5 actions in 1 single step:
1. SOOTHES: Cornflower water comforts sensitive skin.
2. MOISTURIZES: Hyaluronic acid helps maintain hydration level all day long by trapping and retaining moisture inside the skin.
3. PROTECTS: SPF 30 and PA+++ sun filters block aging-accelerating UVA-UVB rays. A mineral filter guarantees higher tolerance on the skin.
4. PREVENTS: An active ingredient of natural origin, Rejuvencia, provides the best shield against external aggressions.
5. EVENS OUT IMPERFECTIONS: Redness, dark spots and pores are visibly diminished.

Within moments, skin appears flawless and glows with natural beauty. The complexion is visibly even-toned, fresh and radiant. CC Cream delivers complete correction and natural-looking, long-wear makeup. An ideal cream for day-long confidence with a lightweight, non-oily, comfortable texture. CC Cream is available in two shades : Beige 20 and Beige Rose 12. Beige 20 offers a natural finish to your complexion.

Chanel CC Cream is formulated to not only brighten and protect the skin from UV rays, but it also evens out the skin’s tone and complexion without feeling thick or greasy, according to the manufacturer. This cream can also be used as a basic cosmetic foundation. While this product may provide your skin with protection from UV rays, it also contains fragrance, which may cause skin irritation when used in the long term.

The package is in a flat and wide white squeeze tub with a black screw cap. This is two of my favorite color : white and black. ^^
It contains 30 ml cream and I think it's nice and handy size to bring along for travel.

The texture is quite thick with a light flower scent. And the color just a little yellow but that corrects out the red patches I have on my face. The coverage is light to medium. It can covered my redness and minimized my pores. It offers SPF 30/PA+++ which is strong enough to use every day. The oil control and staying power are great too. 

 Without CC Cream / With CC Cream

The thing that disappointed is the price and the color selection. I think the price is very expensive. But it's Chanel right. All Chanel makeup is more expensive than other brand. ^^

The color selection only suitable for people with light skin tone. Maybe it not suitable for darker skin tone. It quickly dry too so you have to work fast with this cream. 

(+) Nicely flower scent
(+) Light to medium coverage
(+) Yellow undertone for neutralizing redness on the face
(+) Minimize the appearance of pores
(+) Moisturizes the skin
(+) High SPF
(+) Gives a natural matte finish

(-) Very expensive
(-) Limited shade selection
(-) Dries up fast
(-) Does not covers acne scars and blemishes
