Pur Minerals CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 40 – Photos and Review

A standout in a sea of beauty abbreviations and acronyms

Pur Minerals CC Cream 
 

Do you ever feel bombarded in a world of beauty abbreviations? I feel like wherever I go there is a new acronym. Is it because we do not have enough time or is it something more? This month I got to test Pur Minerals CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 40 icon($38), a product I’m putting this in this “something more” category.

For those of you that may not know, CC stands for color correction. However, I feel like that is the understatement of the year for this product. I found the Pur Minerals CC Cream to be so much more than color correction.

First and one of the most important qualities is that PUR Mineral CC cream contains broad spectrum SPF 40. Sunscreen is one of the most important ingredients for skincare and anti-aging. It also contains DERMAPUR HP, which is a clarifying corrective ingredient and CLARISKIN II, a brightening ingredient created from wheat germ.

The packaging is simple and functional in a plastic pump. It is easy to pump out exactly what you need and minimizes wasted product. I prefer this over other bottles and packaging that often are challenging to get all product out. (I like to use every single drop of what I pay for.)

Available in four shades, Light, Medium, Dark and Tan, I tested light. This worked just fine on my NW 20 skin which is still sporting a summer glow. Overall I think the colors run a bit dark, so it may be a little too much on my winter pale skin – I can’t wait to find out!

This CC cream has the feel of a high end foundation that glides on my face. Yet surprisingly, there is not any silicone in this cream. This is a huge deal for me and my skin. Silicone makes my skin feel oily and clogged within a half hour of application.

A moisturizer, brightener, primer, concealer and foundation all in one. What more could you want? My fickle sensitive skin even approved with no protests. I love that I can get everything in one product and my makeup bag is streamlined.

Pros:
Moderate coverage but, buildable
Blurs imperfections
Blends easily
No silicone

Cons:
Limited colors

All in all, I declare this product a multi-tasking bargain. My skin is happy and makeup bag is lighter because I only need one product for four tasks. Pur Minerals CC Cream is truly a win-win beauty.

    I like what I’m seeing! No silicones, thank youuuuu. I thnk I am starting to realize my potential reaction to silicones and have been trying my best to phase them out to see if that’s what’s messing with my skin. I get really overwhelmed with these acronyms too…I recently saw someone had a DD cream which is just a hop skip and jump away from…ZZ? This looks like a really awesome multitasker which is exactly what I need. Thanks for the review @hao9703!

    I’ve been using BE tinted moisturizer as an all-in-one product (sans concealer) during the warmer months. I figured cooler weather would be sending me back to full-time foundation but this looks like I could get away with using only this product–at least during the day–all the way into winter! I’ll pick this up when my BE is gone since the price point is s imilar.

    Gotta love buildable coverage like that. This looks like a great product and the price is right.. :) I also like the way this is dispensed. Nice and clean!

  4. When I like a product but don’t find the perfect color for my skin, I buy two different colors that I think will give me the shade that fits my skin. I love mixing colors and trying to create the unique shade for my skin!
