Pretty P.O.V.: Lorac CC Color Correcting Cream Tuesday 13 August, 2013
Lorac CC Color Correcting Cream bundles six products into one, making it every lazy girl’s dream-come-true skin product.
I can admit it: I can be exceptionally lazy sometimes. My husband can admit it too: I can be exceptionally lazy oftentimes. (Just ask him about my dish-washing skills. In my defense: I use the very justifiable reason that I cannot break a nail, and washing dishes breaks nails. He sees right through this.)
Laziness can spill over into how many steps (or lack thereof) you’re willing to take to keep your skin flawless and beautiful. Some people skip washing their face at night because they’re too tired (or too lazy; let’s be honest); some throw out using toner, serum, moisturizer, etc. because it’s one step too many for them (guilty as charged…in fits and spurts). So a product like Lorac CC Color Correcting Cream could be the answer to any lazy gal’s wish for better-looking skin. Why? Because it acts like six—yes, six—different products all mashed into one.
Six products is a ton if you really think about it. Imagine lining them all up on your vanity; that can be overwhelming! I don’t even have that type of space in my tiny NYC apartment’s bathroom. So let’s do a rundown of those six products, shall we? In this bottle you’ll find a primer, anti-inflammatory agent, antiager, moisturizer, brightener and color neutralizer. That’s a mouthful…but also awesome.
Why I like it (and why you will too): Despite all of its different functions, this is a pretty lightweight product. It’s creamy and just heavy enough to seamlessly cover imperfections. I happen to have redness on my cheeks and nose, plus some unflattering hyperpigmentation on my forehead, and Lorac’s CC cream reduces their appearance greatly. It doesn’t hurt that the formula feeds skin with free-radical-fighting antioxidants, like green and white tea, plus skin-soothers like chamomile and aloe…plus a million and one other wondrous ingredients that seem to create a force-field of amazing-ness around skin. While Lorac says you can use its CC Color Correcting Cream prior to foundation, I wouldn’t; I feel it’s a bit too thick for that. As a stand-alone product, it’s pretty darn great, though. If you’re a lazy girl like me, or you simply want to whittle down your skin/makeup regimen to save yourself time or space, Lorac CC Color Correcting Cream’s got you covered. Just make sure you wash it off at night…no matter how badly you want to skip that step!
