I've been using different BB creams in place of foundation for a while now, and I really like the end result. So when CC (color correction) creams started showing up all over the place, I wasn't really in a rush to try them out. But after trying out the new Yes to Grapefruit CC Cream, I've totally changed my mind.
The cream is absolutely incredible! Much like the rest of the Yes to... products, their CC cream works wonders and has successfully earned itself a permanent spot in my makeup bag.
Like most of their products, the cream is cruelty-free and is made from 95% natural ingredients, which is always a plus. It's actually the very first natural CC cream on the market! Natural skincare products tend to work better on my crazily sensitive skin, and doesn't even really feel like makeup. I've been applying it instead of foundation (or my coveted BB cream). The formula is very lightweight and it leaves my skin feeling fresh and looking gorgeous.
Here's a quick run-down of the incredible benefits the cream has to offer:
- Provides instant and natural coverage with natural pigments
- Helps correct skin tone with its light texture
- Increases luminosity and radiance with evodia fruit
- Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
- Protects with SPF 18 broad spectrum
- Moisturizes and keeps skin supple and fresh
- Promotes smoother and softer looking skin with grapefruit
This fabulous cream comes in two colors: light and light-medium. Even though there are only two hues available, they seem to adjust to match your skintone perfectly, so having oodles of shades simply isn't necessary. The light shade has a little hint of ivory-color, petals, and honey. The light-medium shade has a touch of latte-esque color, caramel, and hazelnut. Both hues result in a flawless finish your skin will love.
Each bottle of CC Cream is $15.99 and can be purchased on the Yes to Carrots site, as well as in select stores.
