NEW La Roche-Posay Rosaliac CC Creme | Review

I'm a little late to the bandwagon when it comes to the 'double letter' skincare/makeup hybrids as I've only tried a couple of BB creams which I must admit did leave me quite impressed. When I read that the new La Roche-Posay Rosaliac CC Creme* targets redness by concealing and correcting imperfections, I just had to put it to the test. This new product from the well-known French skincare brand combines both foundation and moisturizer making it a no-fuss, one-step facial product for evening out the skin tone and having you out the door that much quicker. The Rosaliac CC Creme comes in a universal shade suitable for fair to medium skin tones and contains a SPF of 30. I'm a big fan of La Roche-Posay because they cater their products to people like me who have sensitive skin and so far I have yet to be disappointed by any one of them -  and I'm happy to announce that the CC Creme (aka 'Complete Correction' cream) is yet another winner in my books!

This was my first time trying the Rosaliac range which is specifically formulated to counter redness, and if you read my blog you know how much help I need in that regard! Redness, breakouts and scarring are my major skin problems, and although I enjoy wearing foundation to even out my skin completely, on most days I prefer wearing something that feels lightweight but that still gives me a bit of coverage. Rosaliac CC Creme fits that description perfectly, and it is quick and easy to apply which is always an added bonus. The tinted cream is enriched with Ambophenol, a naturally derived vegetal extract high in polyphenols which work to neutralize redness by shrinking the size of blood vessels to reveal a calmer-looking complexion. No brushes required, all you need is your hands to apply the product as you would a moisturizer. The shade matches my skin perfectly and it just fades into my skin just like a cream would, but the fact that I am getting a decent amount of coverage on top is really a treat. My skin looks natural and not powdery, cakey or streaky and I do not even have to apply a separate cream prior to application. The CC Creme is long-lasting, although I occasionally have to blot once or twice throughout the day since I have combination skin and tend to get oily in my T-zone. It does not fade throughout the day and holds up very well even with blush, bronzer, and highlighter applied on top.

If you are looking for an easy-to-use, no fuss product that will conceal facial redness while also hydrating and soothing your skin, I would definitely recommend the Rosaliac CC Creme! This product is dermatologist recommended (as are all La Roche-Posay products) and is now available for purchase in Canada, retailing for $32 for 50 ml, conveniently housed in a pump bottle (you can find a point of sale near you by clicking here).

Have you tried any CC creams? What's your favourite BB/CC/DD Cream (I have a hunch EE is coming next, I guess we just have to wait and see!)

  1. I think $32 for 50 ml is a pretty decent price, considering the prices of their other products! I can definitely see how much redness is concealed on your face, though the whole 'universal' shade thing is a bit of an annoyance. What about darker skin tones? ._.
