Supergoop Daily Correct CC cream

RATING (out of 5 stars): 3 stars

COST: $32

THE SKINNY: The one makeup product I can't live without is Urban Decay's Naked Skin BB cream. But I don't like having to layer Urban Decay, SPF 20, with a facial sunscreen in the summer. It's too heavy.

So I was really excited to try Supergoop's Daily Correct CC cream because a CC cream has better coverage and this product has SPF 35.

As much as I want to love Supergoop, I don't. It's heavy, like a foundation and like every other CC cream I've tried, and the color isn't quite right. The Medium Light looks chalky against my summer tan. And I'm sure the Medium Dark will be too much color for my normally fair complexion. Urban Decay compliments my skintone perfectly.

Plus, this CC cream doesn't absorb and blend as well as Urban Decay does. The blemish-control of the CC cream isn't as skin perfecting as I want it to be. And it feels slightly sticky all day long.

But I will choose the CC cream, look at feel be damned, on bright sunny summer days because it protects from sun (UVA, UVB, and infrared rays) all day long. And that's important to me.

KEEP OR TOSS: Keep, but only because of the SPF. Urban Decay's Naked Skin is still my favorite.

CHECK IT OUT: Daily Correct CC Cream is available in Light Medium and Medium Dark.
