Have you ever walked into Boots, saw something in shiny packaging and had the overwhelming feeling that if you don’t buy it you’re going to keel over and die? That’s what happened to me last week when I saw the new Soap & Glory CC Superfluid. I was mesmerised by words like “LIGHTSCRAMBLING SUPERBLUR MICROMESH” and I had no idea what they meant but I knew I had to have it. I was also heavily influenced by the rave reviews the Make Yourself Youthful range has garnered recently so into the basket it went.If you’re wondering what the CC Superfluid actually is, you’ve come to the right place my fair friends. It’s a tinted CC cream that blurs imperfections, illuminates and evens skin tone, and has the added benefits of SPF 15, vitamin C, antioxidants and glycerin – crikey. It comes in a handy pump with an even handier window so you can see when you’re due a replacement if your heart so desires.
The first time I used this I was taken by surprise and almost ended up with product all over the place but my ninja reflexes caught it in time. This stuff is seriously a runny bunny, perhaps similar in consistency to L’Oreal Eau de Teint if you’re au fait with that slippery customer. However, this questionable consistency simply makes it easier to slap on and I didn’t find any need to faff around with a brush, my fingers did a damn fine job.Now, I don’t want to get ahead of myself as it’s early days but I freakin’ love this wonder-fluid, or superfluid, whatever its damn name is. You’ll see from the before and after photos that it’s nothing like a foundation as it virtually undetectable BUT take a look at the reduced dark circles and the natural glow on the cheeks. You’ll also see it’s enough to cover the various lumpies on my forehead too. Trust me, the photos don’t do this stuff justice.Soap & Glory CC Superfluid isn’t one for those who like a heavy coverage but if you want something light and easy for daytime which evens things out and brighten up your ruddy complexion this is the one. As for wear time, I’m the worst person to ask as I don’t tend to touch up during the day (except for lip products). Probably a combination of ignorance and laziness but I don’t notice my bags rearing their ugly heads throughout the day when I have this on.
Before you get too excited, heed this warning – it only comes in two shades, A Good Light and Nude Peach. HOWEVER. Every cloud… When it comes to drugstore products, you can bet your granny the darkest shade will still be too light for me and I’m by no means the darkest on the block BUT the shade Nude Peach works for me perfectly. This leads me to believe that unless you’re very fair or a bit darker than I am (MAC NC42 for reference) one of these shades will adapt to your skin tone.
Soap & Glory CC Superfluid is available at Boots for £14
