Now that the Summer has finally arrived in the UK I thought it would be the perfect time to try out another CC Cream, so today I have Sleeks offering to share with you all.
Sleek's CC Cream* comes in 4 different shades Fair, Light, Medium and Dark and claims to boost radiance and mattify shine and the long-lasting complexion corrector cream also claims to treats and conceal imperfections, sounds pretty great right!?
The shade I have is in Light, which I have to say is pretty dark for something that claims to be light and I think I could definitely of got away with the fair shade, that being said Light is OK for me in the summer months when I have abit of a tan going on so it's not too bad but just bare that in mind if you decide to try it out. The formula of Sleeks CC Cream is very nice and great to work with, it's extremely moisturising and nourishes the skin and combats dull and uneven skin tones leaving you with a beautifully fresh, even complexion. The CC cream also contains vitamin C which helps to protect your skin against damage caused by free radicals, it also reduces fine lines, wrinkles and improves skin elasticity and if that wasn't enough it also has an SPF 29 making it perfect to take away with you on holiday or throughout the Summer months. The coverage of the CC cream is medium but buildable however you'd still need to use some concealer on any dark blemishes or spots. The finish of the CC Cream I really do favour, it's somewhat matte but still has a dewy-ness about it too, it's unique colour adaptive technology really helps the CC creams blending ability making it feel like a second skin and really does combat redness, the technology also makes the skin appear brighter and enhances the skins natural radiance, whilst keeping any shine at bay!
Overall as far as CC creams go this really is a good'un and since we've been in the middle of a heatwave in the UK recently its really been under the ultimate test and passed with flying colours... It's been amazing at keeping any shine to a minimum and I really love that the finish isn't full on matte and flat looking, it doesn't cling to any of my dry patches and blends in relatively quick, it doesn't ever look cakey or oily on my skin and the added SPF has been a complete bonus recently... Yes the shade is slightly too dark for me when I've not got a tan but the colour adaptive technology really does well at blending in with my skin tone and when using a small amount I can just about get away with it when I'm not so tanned. As for the packaging... It holds 25ml's of CC cream and really isn't that exciting and the plain white part of the packaging does get grubby quickly but in the end it does the job!
You can find the Sleek CC Cream on the Sleek MakeUP website for £8.99 or in selected Superdrug stores.
