Mary Kay CC Cream | My Current Daytime Foundation

A very lightweight, 'barely there', CC cream which I use as my everyday foundation.  

This product is just simply impressive.  My shade is light to medium. It provides light coverage so you still have to apply concealer for under eye circles and very dark blemishes. I usually use it on its own with compact powder on top. I think this could also be used as a base for foundation but I haven't tried it yet. It is also non-comedogenic, fragrance-free, and oil-free, perfect for keeping those acne at bay.

Here are the key ingredients of the product:
Niacinamide and ascorbyl glucoside - helps even out the skin tone
Vitamin E and a botanical extract - calming and soothing effect to the skin
Willow bark extract - a skin conditioning ingredient
Emollients - for skin hydration without the greasy feel 
Silymarin extract - an antioxidant against skin-damaging free radicals.

I find this product easy to blend and it sets quickly to a semi-matte and slightly dewy finish. Even if it only has light coverage, I still find it perfect for everyday use - for work, for shopping, running errands, and even when I am just in the mood to lounge around at home with make up. The best part for me is this product already has SPF 15 so 'yay' says my skin. Before I forget, IT HAS A PUMP! It means less mess and less hassle! So A+ for packaging.

Mary Kay CC cream in Light-Medium 
Longevity-wise, it lasted only for around 4 hours on me, but I have combination type of skin so I guess the longevity varies from person to person. 

This is how it looks on me.

Seeing double? haha!
I prefer using CC creams like this as my daytime foundation because it's lightweight but provides enough coverage and I can easily blend it with my fingers! The price is P825.00 which is a little steep but it's worth all the penny. You can check out their other products here: Mary Kay Philippines.
