Hi I’m Sara-Jane and I’m using the FaceD CC cream now for two weeks and I have to say I am a convert!! If you are like me and hate wearing thick foundation every day then this product is for you.
FaceD CC Cream is a correcting cream with SPF protection. Its consistency is very light and blends very well on the skin. It’s perfect for Irish skin as it hides winter redness and ensures an even tone, I now use it as my daily foundation with some light powder and some days I genuinely forget I have make up on.
It conceals any blemishes and you don’t need to use a lot of it. It also blends well with the moisturiser which is very important. I am using it in the light colour and I know this is going to be a must have product for the summer time. Good price point and used in conjunction with the FaceD Lutronics Face Cream you will be ready to face the world.
Exclusive to LloydsPharmacy, FaceD CC Cream comes in light and medium shades at €19.90.
With the cosmetic market constantly bringing new versions of foundations and concealers to our attention, it can be really hard to know what is out there for you!
A good foundation can vary in price from a mass market foundation such as the new Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundationretailing at €7.99 to a premium brand such as Clarins Extra Comfort Foundation which retails at €42.99.
These products are tailored to different skincare needs and work affectively for different ages and skin types.
The Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation is a great product, especially for those with an oily skin type as the matte effect really insures that this product is long lasting – I tested it by wearing it to the gym which really showed it durability! The product stayed on well after a lot of sweating and running around which made me think it’s a great product for a night out on the tiles!!
The Clarins Extra Comfort Foundation is a silkier foundation which gives a great shine and lightness to the skin on application. I found it covered the dark circles under my eyes well and my skin still felt soft and moisturized after wearing this foundation for the day.
While a good foundation doesn’t need to cost an arm and a leg, good cosmetics are an investment in your skin as well as having a regular skincare regime! I personally prefer the Clarins foundation in this case as my skin tends to be slightly dry and this helped keep my skin conditioned as well as covered but I would recommend the Rimmel Stay Matte Mousse Foundation for oiler skin as its staying power is really great!
