Erborian CC Creme HD

One of Erborian's better known lines includes their CC and BB creams - Sarah wrote about their BB cream a couple of years back - and today I have their CC cream to show you.  Where the BB cream has a light, almost ashy cool colour to it, the CC Cream is colourless straight out of the tube, promising to adapt to your skintone as you rub it in.

If you look carefully at this photo, you can see flecks of pigment in the predominantly white cream.

As I start to rub it into my hand, the pigment starts to show itself.  And it's looking a little bit dark for my pale skin.

Err, yup.  Fully developed, the colour is too dark and too warm for me - if your skintone is warm, olive-y, and medium toned Caucasian, this might match you.  Otherwise, you're out of luck.

Texture wise, it's very light and feels hydrating, and even the badly matched hand swatch shows a finish which is surprisingly natural - it's not overly matte, nor is it dewy.  Nice, if it matches your skintone.

Costing £36 at Space NK, it's undoubtedly expensive, although given that lovely texture, and that Sali Hughes has recently raved about it, it's sure to sell out.  If you're curious, it's definitely worth popping in to your local Space NK to try it before you buy.

  1. I don't really understand why they try this 'adapts to your skin' thing - maybe it works if you're not pale to begin with (I'm ghost-like), but it clearly isn't true at all and all the ones I've seen seem to come out with unnatural looking orangey undertones. At that price point there's lots of very nice products with a wide enough shade range to do a match.

  2. Wow, that certainly didn't adapt to your skintone!

    I'm incredibly pale but unlike Lisa above have never had a problem with colour-matching products before- I actually find they work better simply because no 'normal' foundations are quite the right colour for me.

  3. Haha, tactfully put. It's 'colour correction' only if the colour you want to be is 80s fake tan orange. BB cream still good though.
