I’m a little tired of the alphabet trend. We’ve had BB, CC and now DD creams are about to flood the shelves of department stores, promising to deliver everything bar world peace. It seems in most cases sticking a double letter before a product name lures the consumer into a false sense of security, providing promises that simply can’t be kept. It’s easy to become disheartened and pessimestic, but every so often a product that comes along that delivers performance above and beyond expectations. Although it may have the most unglamourous packaging and complicated name, FaceD 3-Luronics CC Cream hit the UK last weekend and it set to cause quite a stir. Hailing from Italy, the face base has excelled in clinical trials and provides both instant and long-term benefits to those suffering from dull, dehydrated, ageing and sallow skin.
It claims to visibly reduce the appearance of expression
lines in under two months, whilst instantly improving the smoothness of
skin and providing the camouflage effect associated with CC creams. The
beautifully textured cream is light and free from mineral oils, parabens
and allergens; it contains SPF20 to help protect the skin from further
damage, as well as helping to instantly moisturise the skin to leave it
feeling soft and smooth. The tinted formula helps to add a healthy glow, evening skin tone and leaving your complexion feeling like you’ve
just come back from a spa weekend. Simultaneously, molecules penetrate
the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production from within – the result of which is ‘noticeably reduced wrinkles over time.’
To substantiate their claims, trials on 40
women revealed both the long and short term benefits of using FaceD 3-Luronics CC
Cream: 80% of women confirmed that their skin brightness and smoothness improved minutes after application; 75% of those who trialled
the CC cream for 56 days reported that their skin felt softer; 68% of
women reported that their expression lines looked reduced; 83% of women
said their skin was more radiant. Those stats are hard to argue with.
Although I’ve only been using this for about a week, it really does provide an easy and (almost) flawless finish on the skin. It’s great to apply when you’re not feeling too great, but don’t want the world to know; instantly gliding onto skin, the velvety smooth texture hides imperfections and blemishes to leave the surface of your face looking radiant. It’s so effective that I barely need concealer and have even been leaving the finishing powder behind – FaceD 3-Luronics CC Cream provides the confidence that few other BB or CC creams have delivered in the past.
Available in store and online, FaceD 3-Luronics CC Cream is
available exclusively from Lloyds Pharmacy. RRP £19.99, but there was a
limited half price offer during the first few days so look out for more!
