BOURJOIS 123 PERFECT CC CREAM REVIEW

My skin is not problematic. It's a little oily but not too much. I have some large pores, redness, and a tiny bit of veins showing but nothing major. Although the condition sounds okay, it still needs something to make it better. It's a bit dull so I look sick and tired if I don't use some kind of makeup to make me look fresh and awake. 

For casual days I like my makeup base to be lightweight and skin-like. This Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream is something I usually go for. It claims to give luminous complexion & smooth skin with 24 hour hydration. Whoa, 24 hour hydration! It's full day, just in case you don't know. It also says that it contains 3 colour corrector pigments which are apricot for anti-fatigue, green for anti-redness, and white for anti-dark spots. It's enriched with SPF 15 and although I don't rely on SPFs in makeup-y kind of product, I still think it's a nice extra protection.
I actually don't really understand the concept of these pigments. Are they like super clever so they know where to activate the green one, where the apricot one, and where the white one? Or they're all distributed and give all of the pigments to every inch of the skin? If anybody can explain in the comment section below I'd really appreciate it *bows*
This CC cream doesn't have a lot of coverage. I'd say the coverage is light. To achieve flawless skin I still need a little bit concealer to cover my under eye area and around my nose but actually I can totally skip the concealer and go out with those tiny imperfections. One thing I know about CC creams in general is CC cream is more of a skincare with added makeup benefits so I totally understand about the amount of coverage given. It gives luminous finish as it claims and it also makes my skin look smooth. I can't say much about the 24 hour hydration claim because I have kinda oily skin and don't need too much hydration but it feels nice and light on the skin, doesn't emphasize dry patches, and doesn't emphasize the pores. 

The tube contains 30ml of product which I think is a standard volume for a foundation. The product itself is kinda runny so you have to be careful when you open the cap. A little pressure on the tube can cause a mess. The opening is not big at all but with the runny consistency, it'd still spill everywhere. Sorry I didn't capture the nozzle because my Bourjois CC Cream has been in use for quiet a while and it's not pretty to look at haha. Eh but you can watch Estee Lalonde's video here to see the detailed look (the nozzle and all). 
I usually use flat top brush to apply it but I can get away with just fingers. It's runny but not liquid-y so it blends effortlessly. No streaking ever existed. I don't feel like I'm wearing anything when I use this Bourjois CC Cream. It's sooo light but still gives the my-skin-but-better look.

I use the shade 32 Light Beige and it matches me perfectly. I'm NC20-25 in MAC, FYI. I believe this will suit most of light medium skins out there. One thing I need to mention here that it doesn't have great oil control. It doesn't say anything about oil control or mattifying, tho. So, yeah, just wanna quickly mention it. I have normal to oily skin and I need to blot in the middle of the day. Nothing major but I want my skin to be a little on the matte side so I blot. 

Overall, I'm really impressed with Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream! If you're looking for a lightweight and skin-like base for everyday makeup, give this one a go. Oh, did I mention it's very affordable too? Yes, it's very affordable.. which kinda surprised me because the price of this CC cream is way below Bourjois' foundation price point. ;D
