Erborian CC Créme is Perfect For Summer!

Korea is miles ahead of the US for innovative beauty products: they gave us BB cream and sheet masks for starters. The Korean secret to a visibly perfect complexion is in high-tech, multi-use formulas that help to improve the appearance of your skin making it look luminous and soft, and reducing the appearance of blemishes. This intelligent, hybrid formula transforms your skin to give it the appearance of a velvety, ultra-soft finish. Erborian CC Créme High Definition Radiance Face Cream accomplishes this beautifully. I’m kinda obsessed.

This multi-purpose ‘high definition’ formula has a color correcting primer built in and encapsulated pigments to enhance and match any skin tone for a flawless look. The cream comes out of the tube white and upon application, adapts to your unique skin tone, creating an even and radiant complexion with NO white residue. It’s available in two shades: Clair (light to medium skin tones) and Dore (medium to deeper skin tones). I am using Clair for my fair skin. It really is magical how the white cream changes to match your skin as you rub it in. I’ve tried foundations with this adaptive quality before, but they tend to oxidize on me and turn orange later in the day, that does NOT happen with this.

It does have sheer coverage and I usually prefer more coverage for my brown spots, but I found it very easy to build up on my problem areas: brown spots on cheeks and a little redness on my chin. I can even apply two layers without it looking thick or cakey but that kind of defeats the purpose of a lightweight CC cream doesn’t it? So in the interest of warm temps and the approaching summer, I’m going to let my freckles show through. With Erborian CC Créme, I feel I have enough coverage to leave the house without feeling bare. It also contains an SPF of 25, making it even more perfect for summer, though I do wish they would up that to 30.

Erborian CC Créme is very moisturizing and doesn’t settle into my lines and wrinkles–it feels and acts like a lightweight moisturizer due to the centella asiatica in the formula. Centella asiatica is an ancient healing plant known for its superpowers when it comes to calming inflammation, stimulating new cell growth, building collagen and to protect, hydrate, and boost radiance. I squeeze a small amount onto my forehead, nose, cheeks and chin and blend into my face with my fingers or a foundation brush. If I have spots that I want more coverage, I just dab more in that area like I would a concealer.

    Can you believe this coverage??

The CC Créme has a lovely satin finish, but if you prefer a dewy finish or just want to get your glow on, I suggest applying the Erborian Glow Créme (reviewed here) underneath. For those of you with fragrance sensitivities, Erborian CC Créme does have a light perfumey scent, though I really don’t think it would be a deal breaker.

Erborian CC Créme is available in 1.5 oz for $44 or 0.5oz. for $18 at ALL Sephora stores on their Favorites Wall!

P.S.-I’m wearing Snapdragon on my lips from the new BECCA Glow Glosses reviewed here.

Bottom Line: I adore the Erborian CC Créme, my skin is instantly even and I feel like I look younger and fresher. This is perfect for no-makeup looks and for summer (25 SPF) when you don’t want to go bare faced but need something lightweight. Highly recommended!

    Great review! This sounds like such a high tech cream, and I’m all for a multi-tasking facial cream!
