Over the last few months, my skin has really not been itself. I’ve been suffering with adult acne, as well as parched, dehydrated skin and lately, I’ve had unusual patches of redness and uneven skin tone. No make up days are a blessing but sometimes you just need to make yourself feel a little bit more presentable, even when you might be spending the day in your pyjamas. A wonderful addition to my days off comes in the form of the Yes to Grapefruit CC Cream* which has been boosting my complexion yet leaving me looking fresh and natural.
I’m not sure if it is because I am so used to being glammed up, but even though my skin is yearning for make up free days, I can’t bear the look of myself without make up. I’m so used to a flawless face that I get super critical of my skin. By using a light cream with a hint of a tint of colour, I feel so much better about myself. The Yes to Grapefruit CC Cream in medium tint matches my skin tone and evens out any redness without clinging to dry patches. Almost like a tinted moisturiser, it soothes and hydrates, yet doesn’t sink into the skin. The velvety smooth formula is almost mousse like when pumped from the tube, yet settles out into a very light cream. It feels quite water based and sits on the skin forming a perfect complexion. I like to keep the CC cream as a stand-alone product, although it helps give an even tone before applying a heavier foundation base. The colour correcting properties within the cream are instantly noticeable, even when swatching on your hand.
Over the last few weeks of using Yes to Grapefruit CC Cream, I’ve felt a lot better about myself whilst on my downtime days. Not only is it so easy to apply, either with your fingers or a brush, it lasts all day without fading and leaves my skin feeing full of moisture. Giving my skin a break from make up without leaving me feeling unkempt has been made so easy with Yes to Grapefruit CC Cream and I feel made up without being made up. I think a CC cream is a definite purchase, if like me, you hate not wearing make up yet need the break from a full face of products.
Yes to Grapefruit CC Cream is available from Boots, in light and medium tint, priced at £12.99
