Erborian CC Créme HD - review


I picked this up in the Bellabox shop around this time last year, and I've just taken it out of my stores again now that the sun is burning brighter because it has a nicely high SPF of 45.

Initially I was a little turned off by the $59 price tag, but I managed to get it on special and used some points for the purchase, so I ended up getting it for a lot less - and I'm so glad I did!

As you may know, I'm something of a tinted moisturiser and BB/CC cream junkie; I prefer a lighter base and these products can deliver great benefits like evening out skintone and brightening without making you look like you're wearing a mask - or indeed, anything at all. This product achieves exactly that and I love it. I'm around halfway through the tube now and I'll definitely consider repurchasing once I've finished it.

You may remember that I also own Erborian's BB Créme (see my review here). While I like that one too, I reckon this CC Créme is definitely the better product.

See below swatch on my hand. The product comes out white but then adapts to your skintone like magic - see the blended patch above the white stripe. You can see that it also adds a nice dewy glow.

You can see a definite change in skintone, hydration and the overall look of my skin. It looks more even and there's a nice glow. Yay!


I really love this. Absolutely it lives up to its claims. It's rich, moisturising and makes my skin look better while keeping things natural.

The only thing I'll say about it is that it can be a little greasy (and smells like sunscreen), so if you have a tendency towards oily skin, you'll probably need to use it with a powder. For those lasses like me with normal to dry skin, you can go without a powder but using one seals the look.

I either wear it on its own or with another thin layer of BB cream or mineral foundation over the top for a bit of extra coverage, while still keeping things natural. It lasts well through the day and the high SPF of 45 definitely appeals, especially for us lasses in sun-scorched Australia.

Recommended. If you'd like to learn more about this, have a look at Erborian's Oz website. This is definitely the best CC cream I've tried, along with L'Oreal's Nude Magique Anti-fatigue CC Cream. While the price tag is a little hefty, I'm sure you could shop around and pick it up for less - plus the 45ml tube lasts for ages, so it's a good investment.
