I have tried so many BB and CC creams over the last year and there are very few that are even worth mentioning. When I heard about the new Osmosis CC Cream I figured it would be another tube on the shelf that looked and felt more like a tinted moisturizer.
The Japanese Pepper ingredient sounded interesting so I figure why not give it the old college try. So hoped out of the shower and pumped a bit on my hand. At first the color took me by surprise that it was so white with tiny color beads. I thought it was going to be way too light.
Then I applied to my skin and noticed once I started rubbing it in the little beads of color burst and it actually matched my skin perfectly. Better than I could match myself shopping for foundation.
I happened to have a minute the first time I tried this and took a before and after picture. Now after a rough week, and little sleep I was looking like I was rode hard and put away wet (and not in a good way). After I applied it I was pleasantly surprised how much better my skin looked. It evened out the ruddiness and hid the marks of a crappy week of sleep. My skin felt and looked so much smoother and clearer.
I have been using this daily for almost 2 weeks now. Yep, this has become my daily go-to foundation. And I love how great it makes my skin look, good enough I skip mascara and other makeup most days. But my favorite thing is it stays matte all day long, no mid day shine or end of day greasy feel. My skin looks and feels amazing from the moment I apply to when I remove it at night. All that and its improving the tone and texture of my skin while its on. Think will be a long term relationship for me.
