Origins Smarty Plants CC Cream

Monday 21 September 2015

On a look around on the Mecca website I found this CC cream from Origins that looked interesting and as I have not heard a great deal about the product I thought I would pick it up on a whim and give it ago. As most of you know already I do love me a BB/CC cream as I prefer lighter coverage and the more natural look on my skin and now that my skin is feeling a bit happier I can now not worry to much about the full coverage foundation...

In the beginning when I first started using this cc cream I wasn't really happy with it but I continued to use it and it has started to grow on me. It has a very sheer coverage that only really cancels out the redness on my face to give me a bit more of a even base. It does not build up at all to get more coverage but it does match into your skin nicely. I also found that it gave me a more dewy complexion not overly oily looking just more of a sheen that you can sort of see in the picture below. I didn't get overly oily with it but I did get a normal amount the same as I would with a lot of other products I have used. I used a beauty blender to apply the cc cream and also set with a powder and it lasted great I had no issues with it moving or leaving my face.

As you can see from the photo above it doesn't do a great deal but like I mentioned it has canceled out a lot of my redness. If your looking for something sheer just to remove slight redness and make you look more awake then this cc cream would do a good job but it is however on the pricey side at $50 a tube. Truthfully overall I wouldn't repurchase this product as I have a lot of other bb/cc creams that do the same or even a better job then this did at a much smaller price tag.

Have you tried this cc cream or what is your go to bb/cc cream?

  2. Great review Nicole, you look beautiful! This would be great for someone with great skin as a barely-there base. I hadn't heard much about it before! xx
