The Best Base – Bourjous 123 Perfect CC Cream

I never thought a make up base so light could correct so many imperfections. I am in LOVE with this CC cream and I have named it the best base because it gives natural coverage, allowing my skin to breathe while evening out my skin tone and correcting all imperfections. It really is 123 Perfect.

Bourjois is now one of my favourite high street brands for make up. I have their Healthy Mix Serum foundation which smells gorgeous and is perfect for when my skin is having a dry patch. Sometimes I even use it on top of this CC cream. Bourjois products are such high quality and for high street prices - this CC cream is £9.99(!) - you really can't go wrong.

Without make up my skin is quite red and patchy - especially in the morning after a hot shower!


After applying the CC cream with the Real Techniques buffing brush all redness is, like magic, gone. The first time I used this I honestly couldn't believe my eyes. It does a better job than some of my full coverage foundations and I love it.

Aaaaand with a full face of make up* I am all ready for the day without feeling like I've caked it on. A light base with such natural coverage, while still correcting imperfections is, in my opinion, the best kind of base for any skin type. This CC cream is my number one make up base and I won't be changing it any time soon! What's your favourite make up base?

  1. Great review, I've been thinking about getting this for ages and you've just made me want it more! I have the CC eye cream which is also really great. :)

    1. Thank you Jasmine <3
      I never got into the hype of BB creams but I got a CC cream in one of my glossybox a couple of months ago, and although the colour was slightly too dark, it did an amazing job and I wanted to try out this one as I had heard amazing things!

  5. Great review! Your skin looks amazing! I've been wearing cover up for as long as I can remember as my skin doesn't seem to work well with foundation (break out in spots and what not). This on the other hand looks perfect. I think I'm gonna have to give it a test xx

    1. Thank you! ahhh I could NOT live without a base. Sometimes I use this and don't even need a concealer, it's that good! I have just started using the Bare Minerals mineral foundation, and am already hooked on that too. Looks just like skin : )
