Studio Gear Hydrating CC Cream Review

I recently got to try a product that I have been wanting to use for a long time and I finally got to try it a little while ago.  I don't know if you have ever used any of the new CC Cream's and I have to admit it took me awhile to try it myself.  I just wasn't sure that this would be something that I needed or would look good using.

I chose the color Linen and here is what it looks like:

Key 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.

This Hydrating CC Cream is really one of the best that I believe I have ever used. Some of the ones I have used in the past either roll off or they cake up on my face and make me look like a clown! This one from Studio Gear is absolutely perfect. I have been going the route of "less is more" for a few years now and thanks to this product, I am slowly doing away with foundation and just using these type of product or the very light tinted moisturizers.

I think I am over those days where everything had to be 100% perfect and I couldn't leave the house without all of it, including the eye makeup, foundation, mascara, concealer, blush, powder, and either a halo or veil powder. Now, I am lucky if I do a moisturizer, primer and then either a CC Cream or a tinted moisturizer.

This one by Studio Gear goes on smoothly, does not roll or cake and doesn't make my skin feel like it's drying out either.

There are two other colors to choose from besides the Linen that I got. You can get either Natural or Wheat. None of them look really dark, so you should still get that flawless looking skin and glowing natural look and you can smile to yourself that you didn't have to add a lot of products on! But, the most important thing about this CC Cream is that your face will feel hydrated and not dry.

Studio Gear has a lot of other products besides the Hydrating CC Cream and now that I know how wonderful my skin feels using this product, I will be trying out some more of their products as I use up my old products. Can't wait to see what else I discover!

I myself don't wear makeup never liked taking the time to do it. So I have never worn foundation. I have seen that caked on look on other people. Not for me. But now that I'm older it eould be nice to try something like this.
