What I say: After my bad run of Bourjois products, I thought I’d give this CC Cream a try and see if it improved my opinion of the brand.

Thankfully, it restored all faith. I was always a huge fan of the brand, but the last few products I’ve tested have been so disappointing, I was beginning to think they’d lost their touch.

But this CC Cream is just marvellous. It gives light to medium coverage with a soft, hydrating formula. Its colour correcting power is what makes it a winner for me, though. It evens out red patches and even does a decent job on under eye bags.

Since trying it for the first time two weeks ago, I haven’t worn anything else on my face during the day. (It’s a bit too light for evening for me).

Sadly Bronze is the darkest shade it comes in, and that means darker skinned girls will miss out here. But paler girls with normal to dry skin will love it.
