My Fave CC Cream: Giorgio Armani Luminessence CC Cream

By  | 

Hi swanksters! Today I’m really excited to share with you one of my all time fave skincare products. I swear by it! It’s the Giorgio Armani Luminessence CC Cream. I love it because it’s an All-in-One product.

Luminessence CC Cream is the new anti-tiredness gem for lackluster skin. In a single step, this new-generation color-correcting makeup hydrates, protects, prevents the signs of aging, creates a more even complexion and reduces the appearance of blemishes, resulting in glowing skin and a spectacular radiance. An all-in-one product that revives tired skin and adapts to any skin tone, this cc cream offers the equivalent of all the benefits of a restorative night’s sleep. -Giorgio Armani Beauty

Below is the video review I did. Watch it and let me know in the comments–which tinted moisturizer, BB cream, or CC cream is your favorite?

You can purchase Giorgio Armani’s Luminessence Color Control CC Cream at Saks Fifth Avenue or Sephora.

Why I consider it to be thee best:

  • smells great
  • light weight
  • give skin an instant radiant glow
  • brightens
  • helps improve complexion

What is a CC cream?

It’s a super charged tinted moisturizer. Moisturizer + a bit of foundation + SPF + anti-aging benefits + blemish control + evens skin tone. A CC cream is usually more lightweight than a foundation so it doesn’t provide as much coverage, but I’ve tried BB creams that feel like foundation.

From what I’ve gathered, a BB cream has SPF, primer, and anti-aging benefits while a tinted moisturizer hydrates/moisturizes, provides minimal coverage, and doesn’t always have SPF.

My advise is that you should use a tinted moisturizer such as a CC cream for your daily wear and use concealer if you have blemishes you need to cover. A quality cream will not clog your pores and will keep you light all day long. As you consistently use it you will see your complexion improve.

At the end of the day–it’s all in the marketing. How they decide to package, label, and word it. That’s why doing your research is so important. Figure out what your skin needs and then compare products to meet those needs. Don’t always feed into the hype and take advantage of sampling offered at Ulta, Sephora, and department stores.
