Is this foundation? What is the difference between foundation and CC Cream?
Foundation comes in various forms (pressed powder, liquid, stick, etc) and typically provides maximum, full coverage while feeling heavy on the skin. The “CC” in CC Cream stands for “color correcting,” so it works to conceal and even out skin imperfections while feeling weightless on the skin. CC Cream is a multitasking formula that hydrates the skin (so no extra moisturizer is needed), has anti-aging properties, and provides SPF protection. Our Buildable Blur CC Cream with SPF 35 features color-adjusting micropigments to brighten and revive dull complexions while concealing redness, rosacea, discoloration, dark spots, pores, and fine lines. The creamy, lightweight formula is ideal for daily use allowing you to build your preferred coverage level similarly to foundation but it never feels heavy or cakey!
Why did you reformulate the CC Cream, I loved it!
Our Product Development team loves listening to our #Thrive Causemetics Community and making our products the very best they can be! With the help of all of the feedback we’ve received, we expanded our shade range from 18 shades to 28 shades, updated the product component, and adjusted the SPF to be 40 and HI-compliant!
Is the SPF mineral or chemical based?
Under the guidance of dermatologists and chemists, we developed Buildable Blur CC Cream with mineral and chemical sunscreens to ensure that our CC cream is a product all skin tones and types can safely enjoy. Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide (two ingredients in our CC cream) are wonderful SPF filters, but when they are the sole source of sun protection, they create a strong whitecast on the skin. This makes it difficult to achieve deeper shades, which is incredibly important to us as a company to continue being inclusive of all skin tones.
What makes the SPF in the reformulated CC Cream HI-compliant?
Our SPF is now formulated without octinoxate + oxybenzone!
What is the wear time?
The Buildable Blur CC Cream can look freshly applied for up to 16 hours of wear time!
What finish is this?
The reformulated Buildable Blur CC Cream is still a beautiful natural finish that will provide sheer to full coverage! If you prefer a more mattified makeup application, we suggest pairing this with our Filtered Effects Blurring Primer and/or Filtered Effects Soft Focus HD Setting Powder! If you prefer a more natural glow, pair the Buildable Blur CC Cream with our Brilliant Face Brightening Illuminating Primer! Our Buildable Blur CC Cream has a natural finish.
Will it clog my pores?
Our CC Cream is a lightweight, buildable formula powered by our key ingredient Flaxseed Extract to help soften + smooth skin with omega-3 proteins which help to improve skin texture and tone over time! Our high-performance ingredients are always formulated without parabens, phthalates, sulfates and synthetic fragrances to ensure they're safe for all skin types!
Is this formula for sensitive skin? Will it work with my skin type (oily/dry/combo)?
Our Buildable Blur CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 35 was created for all skin types and is safe and effective for those with sensitive skin. It’s formulated with flaxseed extract which will help control and absorb excess oil to reduce shine without drying out your skin. It's also packed with Vitamin C to give you an antioxidant boost every time you apply it and create a brighter, more youthful glow over time!
