CC Cream SPF 20 in linen review

I received a sample of the Studio Gear CC cream for testing purposes. All thoughts here are my own and not influenced by others.

Ok so I admit it I was a little behind and by the time I heard about BB cream CC was launched about a month later. I still haven't tried a BB cream but I did get a sample of Studio Gear's new contender on the market. Being as pale as I am I went with the lightest shade to help prevent it from being too dark for me ( it happens a lot.)

Here is some information from Ulta:

Micro encapsulated pigments deliver a fresh dose of color that adapts to your own skin tone creating the most natural looking coverage. This lightweight, oil free cream is infused with Hydra-Extend technology that provides up to 72 hours of continuous hydration. Skin nourishing and brightening ingredients help to correct and maintain a youthful complexion. 

Helps to brighten skin. Creates a truly flawless invisible finish without buildup. Lightweight formula nourishes and hydrates skin for up to 72 hours. Helps to smooth skin and even the appearance of imperfect skin for a more youthful appearing complexion. Helps to blur and smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Looks fresh for hours. Oil-Free. Paraben free preservative system.


Apply daily over moisturizer or alone.

Being as pale as I am I do have issues with burning easily so I keep stock when it comes to sunblock but its not been good for my face and has caused break outs. So when I saw this had SPF in it I was ecstatic, but I wish it was a higher SPF so it could be worn alone for me ( I need about 70 spf and above) it is great when layered with other products that provide SPF.

When you open the product you can smell it immediately, the smell reminds me of some good ol coppertone. Its not over powering but you can tell its there. I really enjoy wearing this its like not wearing anything at all, its not greasy or oily and it doesn't bother my acne.


I didn't have any issues with blending in but if you are looking for something that will cover (by itself) moderate to severe acne then this will not provide the coverage you are looking for but this could be used under your current routine. I admit it some days I am just lazy and don't apply foundation and go out with nothing but liner and give my face a break but this would totally be something I would wear alone on those days just because of the SPF qualities and its less greasy and smells better than what I was using.

 If you are looking for a CC cream then I suggest checking out Studio Gear. Retail cost is $32 for 1.1 oz and can be found at your local Ulta.
