Today I am reviewing the newly launched Faces CC Cream which is an SPF 20 Color and Care cream that claims to prime, perfect and protect.
Price : Rs 399 for 35 g
My take on the Product
The Faces CC cream comes in a black plastic tube packaging with a screw on cap. The texture and consistency of the cream is liquidy and sheer. The thin consistency makes it very easy to spread and blend onto the skin. The cream has sheer coverage, it doesn’t cover much but gives a thin veil of color. It doesn’t quite cover my under eye pigmentation and blemish marks but does even out the overall tone. Its neither too dewy nor matte, it has a soft satin finish with a hint of healthy sheen. It gives a natural radiant look to the skin. It feels moisturizing but doesn’t make my skin greasy, doesn’t sit into pores and doesn’t go patchy in areas of dryness and blemishes. Even without a powder on top, this wore really well on my skin for over 7 hours. I can see this working well for all skin types. Since its light in texture and has a satiny finish, it can be worn under foundation as well (but as a substitute for moisturizer).
Overall I’m quite impressed with this and I can see myself wearing this for daily wear. It also contains SPF 20 making it great for day wear. With its anti-aging claims, I was expecting it to be very emollient and heavy for my combination/oily skin but I was surprised by how light weight it was and how well it suited my skin. The tint in the cream is very natural looking and has enough warm tones to not look ashy on the Indian skin. I do wish they had more shades to cover a wider range of complexions.
Do note that this contains alcohol, silicones and salicylic acid so if you are sensitive to either of these, you could skip this. As for its anti-aging claims, I see Niacinamide and Hyaluronic Acid listed in the ingredients so it might have some benefit but I don’t think this is a substitute for a dedicated skincare product. Nevertheless, I do recommend this to ladies looking for a natural, light weight tinted cream for daily wear!
