Origins CC Cream

For the longest time I had no idea what CC cream was as I was just only getting the hang of BB cream and proud of myself for that... But recently I was looking for something that would help give my face a flawless finish and color correct some imperfections.

When I placed my last Sephora order I decided to try out Origins Smarty Plants CC cream which includes SPF 20 in it and is formulated without parabens and sulfates. Already winning right there...

Origins Smarty Plants CC Cream

I started using it last weekend for a night out instead of using primer and just brushed some finishing powder over it and loved the result. My skin appeared smoother and it provided great coverage without the stickiness I get from using primer. I've also been using it in place of primer all week for work and have gotten the same results.

I like that it feels lighter and less sticky than using primer and foundation, and a little bit goes a long way so I know it's well worth the money and will last a while.

Have you tried CC cream? What did you think?


  1. I haven't tried CC cream, but I hate foundation, so this might work for me.

  2. I only wear CC cream, and love the coverage and smoothness it gives my skin. It's seriously awesome. I gave up on foundation a long time ago.

  3. I love CC creams! In the summer, I use Supergoop's CC cream. I love that it's color adjusting which is perfect for summer when some days I'm tanner than others.

  4. I guess it's time for me to give CC cream a try! I haven't tried BB cream either though. What's the difference between the two?

  5. The only ones I've tried broke my face out....I have had luck with Origin products in the past I may have to check this one out :-)

  6. I would love to try CC cream, but I need the full coverage that foundation provides right now. Maybe one day….lol
