I have to say, I am crazy about all the new innovations in makeup and skincare of late - it makes me so excited about the wonder that is the beauty industry. I think, for most of us, finding a product that perfects the skin whilst allowing it to look natural is high on the list of priorities. It is definitely a top priority for me and so I am all over the CC Cream (complexion corrector) offerings.

Here is the low-down on the Olay Regenerist CC Cream.

The formula is 3-in-1 which you can spot straight away with the incredible packaging. Check out that swirl of products - they sit separately in the tube and then the pump blends the 3 elements together at the point of delivery.

The elements:
  • An anti-ageing serum containing Olay’s ‘Essential Glucosamine Complex’, which comprises N-Acetyl Glucosamine (NAG) and Niacinamide – clinically proven to reduce dark spots and wrinkles 
  • A moisturiser with glycerine, SPF 15 sunscreen and anti-oxidant vitamin E – a powerful combination which hydrates and protects the skin instantly improving tone and texture
  • A sheer foundation incorporating mineral pigments which immediately blend and match skin tone delivering natural-looking and even coverage

Out of all the CC Creams I have tried, I think the Olay Regenerist one is strongest in terms of what it has to offer in the skincare department. It feels just like a serum/moisturiser as it goes on and honestly has made my skin feel so soft and hydrated. I am extremely impressed with it on that front - particularly with the ingredients which tackle pigmentation and wrinkles over time.

So here is the bit you've been waiting for - the before and afters! Here is my before shot, showing a clean, moisturised face.

In terms of the foundation element and coverage, it is on the light side and was wonderful for use on the plane and while I was in Ibiza last week. As you will see it definitely evens out redness, blurs lines and makes my open pores much less visible.

Here is the after shot of me wearing the Olay CC Cream:

It is absolutely ideal for a no makeup look, and if you required more coverage you could use it with concealer, or as a primer, layering on foundation just in the places you need it.

For a closer comparison, here are a couple of half and half pictures - the Olay CC Cream is applied to the left side as you see it.

The first of these two photos demonstrates well how it covers the redness in my skin - particularly on my chin. The second photo shows how open pores and lines are less visible. 

I am really very pleased with the makeup element and teamed with how soft it makes my skin and the long-term anti-ageing benefits, this product is a definite winner for me.

For more of a makeup look I'll add cream blush, a touch of powder on the t-zone, mascara and lip gloss - I'll look like a fresh-faced natural beauty!
