Almay CC Cream Review

As some of you may have noticed, I have a lot of skin problems. Between acne, oil, and everything in between I just can’t catch a break with my skin! I have tried BB creams, which seem to help, but they don’t cover well enough or work well enough for me to do a complete switch. When I heard I was getting the chance to review the Almay CC Cream I wanted to jump up and down for joy to try a new product that may actually help me!

Almay CC Cream Review

I was very excited about this product, not only because it does everything a BB cream does, but because it also provides more coverage and after continued use correct many skin problems. I thought this would be perfect for me and I couldn’t wait to test it out. The first time I used it I noticed that not only did it cover better than any of the other creams I have tried, but that it did not make my skin produce more oil. So I decided to keep using it. :)

After using it for about a week, I noticed a great difference in the amount of oil produced in my skin as well as how many breakouts I was getting. It also seemed to help correct my uneven skin tone which was a must have for me! I loved that I could use this as a base or even a primer for my other makeup, or that I could wear it alone for those days that I just want to lay around the house and not waste a whole bunch of product but still look great.

I can honestly say that I LOVE this product and that it is way better than any BB cream or tinted moisturizer that I have used. It is great for just about any occasion and is very simple to use. It even has SPF built in! You can find this and other great Almay products on their website here.

  1. I personally find that my skin get irritated by the tint in the BB creams, I wonder if the results would be the same with the CC cream. Hmmm…I’ll have to check this one out. Thanks for the review!

  3. I like CC and BB creams. This sounds like a good product and Almay prices are quite reasonable too. I mean, I spend enough money on products so this is all good to know.

  4. I love Almay, the prices are great and they don’t break me out like a lot of other products do.

  7. This stuff definitely isn’t for me, but I’ll make sure that I share this post with my girlfriend. If I’m not mistaken she uses BB cream, so I’m sure she’d be interested in knowing more about CC cream.

  8. Makeup that treats acne!?!? Oh my, I need to go find this Almay cream at the drug store, post haste.

  9. Is it like a foundation or more like a tinted moisturizer? I see the BB cream commercials all the time…I had no idea there was a CC cream out now!

      It’s in the middle. It doesn’t cover as well as a foundation, but covers more than a tinted moisturizer :)

  10. I haven’t tried CC cream before but I have never really liked BB cream because I do need more coverage. This sounds like a product I would like and it is Almay so I know it wouldn’t irritate my skin.

  12. Before I wold not leave the house without foundation but now I only use a bb cream but it really is not enough coverage, the cc cream sounds like something that might really work for me. Love that it actually helps correct skin problems!

  16. Great review. I’ve never used a face cream like that but it sounds amazing. Do you know if it comes in a sensitive skin formula?
