Product Spotlight: Erborian CC Cream

One tube of Erborian’s cult CC Cream sells every minute worldwide – and for good reason. While lightly coating the skin – but with great coverage – it also minimises redness and imperfections. Industry insiders love it too. If you’re not already on the bandwagon, here’s what you need to know.

How It Works…

Lending lightweight – yet impressive – coverage, Erborian’s shade-matching CC cream smooths texture, boosts glow and fades the appearance of dark spots over time with vitamin E and honey extract. Dubbed a 'filter for your face', use it as a base before your make-up or add it to matte formulas to enhance radiance and glow. “Use your fingers to apply it, and really work it into the skin like a moisturiser,” advises make-up artist Kenneth Soh. “Because it contains colour pigments, the warmth of your fingers will help break down the tone so it matches your own complexion seamlessly.” Added antioxidants lend skin a strengthening boost, too, blocking any damage from pollution or UV, while centella asiatica stimulates collagen production over time.

Why Insiders Call It A ‘Game-Changer’…

It’s not just make-up artists that rate this product. Supermodels Carla Bruni-Sarkozy and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley have both previously advocated the cream, describing it as 'baby skin in a tube' and 'radiant coverage for uneven tone, with a great SPF'. It’s also regularly spied in make-up artists’ kits backstage – thanks to tiger grass, which can take down redness in a pinch when time is at a premium. No wonder it continues to be a bestseller at both Sephora and Space NK.

How To Get The Most From It…

Its benefits go far beyond just evening out skin tone. “You can also use it to highlight the skin – and this is especially great for darker complexions,” adds Kenneth. “Try applying it to central areas of the face to brighten things up. Use a little on your forehead, cheeks and chin, too, as this is where the face can become quite dull and discoloured. Finally, buff in your regular foundation on top to bring everything together. Use some over the décolletage and shoulders, too. It helps the skin to glow, without the need for any foundation or tan.”  

What The Brand Says…

The brand itself is based upon a desire for simplicity. Merging the benefits of both Korean and French skincare, co-founders, Katalin Berenyi and Hojung Lee wanted to streamline people’s routines with a product that would lend great coverage, while simultaneously caring for the skin. "We created our CC Cream to be the perfect simplistic product that delivers gorgeous results in seconds," explains Diane Blanquart, International Trainer & Training Coordinator, Erborian. "It works as a 5-in-1 product to hydrate, protect, soothe and illuminate your skin tone with encapsulated pigments. It's a formula that can combine the wants and needs of everyone, while offering a flawless, even complexion."
