I never really managed to get on board the BB/CC band wagon but when La Roche-Posay offered to send me their Rosaliac CC Cream, how could I say no? I’ve always been such a fan of their products and they feature in my skincare routines religiously. Rosaliac is a colour correcting cream (hence the ‘CC’) and it’s main purpose is to cover up the appearance of redness. Although I don’t suffer with the likes of Rosacea, my skin always seems to look quite red and congested so I thought to myself, why not give this a go? It comes in a universal shade that is said to adapt to all skin tones and it is incredibly moisturising. However, if you’re really fair then I would probably avoid La Roche-Posay’s Rosaliac CC Cream as the universal shade doesn’t seem to be all that universal when it comes to the paler skin tones. You only need a small amount of this creamy product as it spreads a really long way, creating a nice ‘my skin but better’ base which looks completely natural. I did find that it took a fair bit of effort to blend in using my fingers but I found it to be even more of a pain in the backside trying to blend with a brush. Fingers it is then. You can ask anyone who knows me, I’m not the type of gal to leave the house without my slap on (confidence issues eh?) and this hasn’t changed that in any way but on the days where I’m nipping to the shop or walking the dog, this has become my quick go to product. It offers a decent coverage and it has SPF 30 which is perfect for Spring/Summer. I do have incredibly oily skin so it does give me a bit of a dewy shine but I make sure that I set it with my beloved Vichy Dermablend and I’m good to go. I love La Roche-Posay, they are such an accessible and amazing brand – they offer something for every skin problem and the price point is spot on. Although this might not necessarily be my favourite product of theirs (I’m all about the Effaclar range), I still quite liked it. The Rosaliac CC Cream is a great size and I love the pump feature – it will last me an incredibly long time. It is great for a quick fix when I’m in a rush and it is an ideal lighter option when choosing a base throughout the hotter months (if we actually get to have any).
