In Praise Of Erborian (and more)

This post is sponsored by Erborian, a brand that up until the end of 2019 I have to admit I had never heard of. Now I don’t know how I did without it. In fact before I discovered this brand I had never even tried a CC Cream or a BB Cream, Didn’t even know what those letters stood for. FYI, CC stands for ‘Colour Corrector’ and BB Stands for ‘Beauty Balm’ or similar words along those lines. Basically they are a cross between skin care and make-up and the ideal base if you’re looking for light, natural coverage. the CC Cream goes on white but blends in to even out your skin tone. I use the lightest colour, Clair. It comes in 3 shades and the brand are expanding their shade range in the coming months.

No Make up, CC Cream, After CC Cream, with a bit of lippy and bronzer. that’s is for my make-up routine these days…

After a certain age I think heavy make-up just makes you look older. This could just be me, but these days I prefer a product that isn’t so much covering up the skin, but enhancing what’s there. My favourite product in the Erborian range is the CC cream. It gives a marginally lighter coverage than the BB cream, and also a slightly more matt finish for those who have oily skin, also me. It’s SPF 25 and contains 2 anti aging ingredients:  Centella Asiatica which helps increase collagen production and Adenosine which Improves skin elasticity and softness.

Good to note, one tube of Erborian CC cream lasts me 8 months! Value for money as well as being an amazing product. If you’re after even lighter coverage, check out their new CC Water. Use code Kate20 for 20% off sitewide (excluding ongoing promotions and sets).

The Erborian CC Cream, My everyday go to skincare/makeup product.

The other product I use every day from Erborian is their CC Eye Cream, I have VERY sensitive eyes so there are only a few things I can use on them. This cream is great for dark circles and generally brightening up the eye area. It comes out the same as the CC Cream, white but then pigments burst and adapt to your skin tone perfectly.

Excellent CC eye Cream. Excuse the thumb nail polish situ. That has annoyed me, but what can you do ?

Here are some more of my current favourite makeup and beauty buys. Also a few hair products that I swear by, because hair is important…
