Sleek CC Cream | Light

Saturday, 5 April 2014


I have never found a BB or CC creams that I have fallen in love with. With a lot of them I find they are way too sheer and greasy which even for my dry skin makes me look oily and gross. For a more natural everyday look I have just always sheered out my foundation with moisturiser to create my own tinted moisturiser. There are also so many out complexion correcting creams on the market these days that it can be really confusing trying to pick one to try out! Sleek makeup very kindly sent me their brand new CC cream to try out so I was very excited to see how it would work for me.

Sleeks CC Cream* is intended to boost your skin's natural radiance and mattify shine whilst concealing imperfections with medium coverage. The moisturising formula contains vitamin C to help reduce fine lines, wrinkles and improve elasticity whilst nourishing the skin. This cream has a unique colour adaptave technology that can adjust to your skin tone. It also works to brighten dull and uneven skintones with the added benefits of SPF 29 to protect skin against harmful UVA and UVB rays.

One of the things I love about Sleek is their packaging. Their products are always clean and simple looking and this CC cream is no different. It gives their products a higher end feel which is great for such an affordable brand.

The cream itself has a thicker consistency than I was expecting which was a pleasant surprise, as some other CC creams I have experienced are much more watery. The formula is super creamy but not greasy and blends like a dream into the skin. It instantly mattifies as you blend it but doesn't set powdery, instead it has a beautiful satin finish which looks just like skin!

In terms of coverage this CC cream really impressed me too. I used around a pea sized amount and got a good medium coverage for my whole face. It feels really moisturising and on the skin and looks really  radiant and natural. I'm a little more tanned than usual and was unsure if the shade light would make me looked too washed out, but it blended in really well with my skin. As I have quite dry skin I was able to wear this for around 5 hours before I noticed a little bit of oil on my t-zone which is better than some foundations!

All in all I have absolutely fallen in love with this CC Cream which I never really thought would happen. The coverage is fantastic, it lasts really well on me and gives my skin a natural glow without being oily. In the upcoming summer months this will be perfect for days when you want the coverage of a foundation but something light on the skin. With added bonus of SPF29 you could even wear this on holiday when at the pool or beach.

There are four shades in the range from Fair, Light, Medium and Dark. For a CC cream its a good selection of shades and because the formula adapts to your skin you should be able to find one that matches you best.

The Sleek CC Cream is available online and in Superdrug stores for £8.99

  1. This really looks so promising! I wanted to try their bb cream but didn't end up going through with that order! I've had a very very bad experience with their liquid foundation but everything else from them I love. I'm quite sure I'm light too, thanks for reviewing!
