The Lightweight Skin Tint You Need This Summer

The Lightweight Skin Tint You Need This Summer

Erborian’s cult CC Cream has a new counterpart. Now lighter in texture and full of hydration and other skincare benefits, CC Water is the latest iteration to try this summer. With a luminous finish, great coverage and able to boost collagen, it’s set to be as popular – if not more so – than the original. Read on for more – including your chance to receive £10 OFF…



The Hype:

It’s no secret we’re huge fans of Erborian’s original CC Cream – as are many industry insiders, with one tube selling every minute globally. The latest formula, CC Water, has been designed to include all the original benefits, just with more of a lightweight texture and clear consistency so it never feels too occlusive or heavy on your skin – in other words, the ideal summer choice. You can still expect to find centella asiatica inside – which stimulates collagen production over time – but also newer ingredients which include glycerine and hyaluronic acid. Tiny encapsulated capsules break out into colour-correcting pigments as you massage this cream into your skin, providing your complexion with instant, visibly plumper-looking hydration. You’ll love the thin, gel-like texture, too, which absorbs fast and feels like a drink for your skin. Expect better glow, but also a ‘your skin, but better’ finish. It’s a must-try in the make-up-skincare-hybrid category – not least because it nourishes while lending lightweight, yet impressive, coverage. 

The Shade:

There are only three shades available, which may seem limited, but the self-adapting colour means there’s something likely to suit everyone. ‘Clair’ is best for paler skin tones, while ‘Doré’ suits olive complexions and ‘Caramel’ is best for darker tones. It’s also worth noting that, as the texture is different to the original, the pigments inside apply slightly darker, so you’ll find you won’t need to use as much. Try applying it only to the areas that need it most – think the forehead, cheeks and chin – to even out your complexion and correct any uneven tone. 

The thin, gel-like texture provides great coverage, absorbs fast, feels like a drink for your skin and gives impressive luminosity.

The Best Way To Apply It:

As the formula contains colour pigments, experts recommend using the warmth of your fingers to break down the product for even and seamless coverage. Massage it into your skin as you would a face cream for best results. You can wear it under make-up or on its own for a dewy, fresh, youthful look – either way, expect more illuminated skin that feels and looks hydrated. Try a little on your décolletage and shoulders, too – it’s an easy way to keep your skin looking radiant, without needing to apply a heavy foundation or tan.
