CC Cream

Earlier this year, I received a free sample in the mail of a BB cream. After trying it out, and liking it, I decided to look for a full-size version I could buy. I quickly realized I'd need to look for a different brand though as the one I received not only had a long list of toxic chemicals, but animal by-products as well. Through my research though, I found a new BB-like cream just emerging into the market. It was basically like a souped-up version of BB cream, with added benefits. It was called CC cream.

Trying to not only find a vegan cream, but one with no toxic chemicals proved to be difficult. Since CC cream was new and there weren't a lot available yet, the choices were limited. But I prevailed and found a vegan, non-toxic CC cream. The brand? Juice Beauty. I knew I found the right one when I saw some of Juice Beauty's products were collaborated with Alicia Silverstone, an outspoken vegan and activist.

Juice Beauty's CC cream comes in two shades and I chose the lighter of the two as I'm quite pale. Instead of buying directly from Juice Beauty's site though, I went with as I'm a member, earn cashback, and get free two-day shipping through ShopRunner.

A few days after receiving it, I began using it. Since I started, I haven't really noticed any permanent physical changes to my skin, but it does make it look smoother after I apply a layer. It's a great moisturizer with SPF 30, a nice added bonus.

I bought it back at the beginning of April and I'm still on my first tube. Definitely lasts awhile!

So, if you're in the market for a BB cream/CC cream/moisturizer, I'd definitely recommend this one :)
