studio gear cc cream and coupon code

I was recently asked to try and review Studio Gear's Hydrating CC Cream

Some of you might be wondering what exactly a CC cream is and how it differs from a BB cream. If that's you, here's a good background article for you. For this CC cream, specifically, Studio Gear claims the following benefits:

  • Protects:  SPF 20 protects the skin, while Hydra-Extend technology provides moisture for up to 72 hours.
  • Perfects:  Enjoy natural looking coverage while micro-encapsulated pigments perfects and fade dark spots and acne scarring.
  • Corrects:  Anti-aging and collagen building ingredients help minimize fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Hydrates:  Hydra-Extend technology provides up to 72 hours of continuous hydration.
  • Conceals:  Micro encapsulated pigments deliver a fresh dose of color that adapts to your own skin tone, creating the most natural looking coverage.
  • Smoothes:  Skin nourishing ingredients help to correct and maintain youthful complexion.

I've been using this for my foundation almost exclusively for the last week, and I'm excited to share my thoughts with you.

Before I started using this cream, my skin was in a really bad mood. Changing weather, hormones, and too much traveling had taken quite a toll. My skin was so irritated that applying makeup was painful. Normally I put up with the pain and insist on covering up as much as possible when that happens. Knowing I had committed to trying out this foundation, though, I accepted the decreased coverage and moved forward. I have to tell you: while I didn't love the way my skin looked those first couple of days, I am so grateful for how it felt.

Once the texture of my skin had evened out, this CC cream was great at taking care of discoloration, a more common problem I have.

Here are some shots of this product protecting, perfecting, correcting, hydrating, concealing, and smoothing over the last week:

 As I type

I really am a fan of this makeup. It lasts all day and is wonderfully lightweight. I used the cc cream in the shade natural, which is the middle of their three shades. When I reorder, I think I'll go with light (unless I miraculously get some color this summer).
