La Roche-Posay Rosaliac CC Cream SPF30

Can we get an eye roll and possibly a slap with ‘what were you thinking Selma?’ – about right now. I know, it’s kinda ridiculous that I’ve jumped on the alphabet cream bandwagon. It’s interesting how the Western market picked up on these but, in all honesty, these are nothing like BB or CC creams from Asia. However, I think that all these new alphabet creams are amped-up tinted moisturizers which is a good thing in my opinion and I’ll tell you why. Do you have any recollection of a good, truly good tinted cream about five years ago? Me either. They all were these runny creams with uneven specks of pigment, most of those were oily and patchy upon application. Than (Western) BB creams arrived and they were a step or even two steps ahead of old formulations, providing better coverage and more pleasant textures. (Western) CC creams, on the other hand, I think have no to little advantage when compared to BB creams mostly because there is no benchmark, no standard to compare them to and they’ll all end up varying from brand to brand as the deal is with BB creams even. Don’t even get me started on DD creams. Now, I was intrigued (not gonna lie) and LRP is my fave skincare brand – I simply had to see for myself what they came up with. La Roche-Posay Rosaliac CC Daily Unifying Complete Correction Cream SPF30 is something I’ll be using all summer long – the deets are in the following few lines.

Mislim da ste u ogromnom iskusenju da prevrnete okicama, malo me prodrmate i upitate ‘zeno draga, o cemu si razmisljala?’. Znam, prilicno je blesavo sto sam se i ja prikljucila trendu ‘alfabetskih krema’. Interesantno je kako je Zapadno trziste ‘namirisalo’ potencijal kakav ove kreme posjeduju no, ako cemo biti u potpunosti iskrene, ove kreme nisu ni sjena azijskim BB i CC kremama. U svakom slucaju, moje misljenje jeste da su ovo ustvari usavrsene tonirane kreme i to je dobra stvar, a reci cu vam zasto. Recite mi iskreno, da li se uopste mozete prisjetiti pristojne ali zaista pristojne tonirane kreme prije pet-sest godina? Ne, ni ja. Sve su bile vodenaste, pigment nije pruzao prekrivnost, bile su dosta masne i neravnomjerno se nanosile. Potom su se (Zapadne) BB kreme nasle u prodaji i doslovno su bile korak-dva naprijed na polju toniranih krema posto su pruzale bolju i ravnomjerniju prekrivnost te ugodnije teksture. Sa druge strane, (Zapadne) CC kreme ne predstavljaju po mom misljenju neki znacajan pomak u odnosu na BB kreme. Mislim da je to tako iz razloga sto nemamo neki postavljeni standard prema kojem bi usporedjivali nove CC kreme. Cini mi se da ce medju CC kremama razlike i odstupanja biti ogromna (od brenda do brenda), bas kakva je situacija danas i sa BB kremama. Necemo ni spominjati DD kreme jer to je tek prica za sebe. Moram priznati da me pored svega koncept zaintrigirao (necu da se pretvaram da nije) a LRP je meni omiljeni preparativni brend tako da me zaista zanimalo sto su to kreirali. La Roche-Posay CC dnevna ujednacavajuca krema koja pruza potpuno korigiranje sa SPF30 je nesto sto cu koristiti cijelo ljeto – u nastavku su sadrzani razlozi zasto.

First observation – this CC creams is a part of the Rosaliac range. Automatically I know that it’s formulated for reactive, sensitive skins with tendency to go red (occasionally or for persistent redness problems as well). I expect a gentle formula, decent coverage and soothing properties. This LRP Rosaliac CC cream is available in only one shade but it’s fairly noted how it suits light to medium skin tones – I agree with that. It contains La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water and naturally derived Ambophenol, which helps to neutralize long term redness. I don’t suffer from real redness problems but I do get some in my cheeks from time to time and I can attest that it does help almost banish redness from my complexion. I also agree that this shade does succeed to adapt to almost all light and medium skin tones. The secret to such great adaptive properties lies in the unique blend and ground-breaking balance between lightness and depth, between white, red, yellow and black pigments. Yeah, I know – ‘black pigments’? It does really work. I also love that it has an SPF30 (UVA and UVB protection included) yet it never leaves a white cast. Bravo, La Roche-Posay! It can be used as a moisturizer but also as a make-up (foundation) replacement as it provides very decent medium coverage. There is a catch, however. The texture of this CC cream is quite different and presumably demanding. You cannot simply slap it on with your fingers alone – I prefer to apply it firstly with my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush and then I massage it in with my fingers. I don’t need any setting powder but oily skin might (mine is combo). It never creases around the eyes or the nose and leaves an irresistible dewy finish. Coverage is really great for my liking – solid medium coverage. You’ll see how it looks on me when I review a Sleek blush next week.

Prva stvar koju sam primjetila – ova CC krema je dio Rosaliac linije proizvoda. Automatski znam da je formulisana za reaktivnu, osjetljivu kozu sklonu crvenilu (bilo da se radi o povremenom ili hronicnom). Ocekujem njeznu formulaciju, pristojno prekrivanje te umirujuca svojstva. Ova LRP CC Rosaliac krema je dostupna u samo jednoj nijansi no fer je sto je odmah naglaseno da nije cudotvorac vec da odgovara svijetlijem i srednje tamnom tenu – sa time se slazem. Sadrzi La Roche-Posay termalnu izvorsku vodu te prirodno dobiven Ambophenol cija je svrha neutraliziranje crvenila na duge staze. Licno ne patim od ozbiljnijeg crvenila no nekada mi se pojavi na obrazima i zaista mogu posvjedociti da ga skoro u potpunosti ukloni sa lica. Takodjer je istina i da se ova nijansa bez problema prilagodjava kako svijetlom tenu tako i srednje tamnom. Tajna tih efektnih prilagodjavajucih svojstava lezi u prilicno nevjerovatnom balansu svjetline i dubine na osnovu bijelih, crvenih, zutih i crnih pigmenata. Da, znam – i ja sam se iznenadila ‘crnim pigmentima’. Takodjer mi je odlicno sto iako sadrzi SPF30 (ukljucena je zastita od UVA i UVB zraka), ova kremica nikada ne ostavlja bijeli trag na licu. Bravo La Roche-Posay! Moze biti koristena kao klasicna hidratantna krema ali i kao solidna zamjena za tecnu podlogu jer pruza prilicno dobro prekrivanje. Ipak, postoji ‘caka’. Tekstura ove CC kreme je dosta specificna te donekle i zahtjevna. Necete dobiti najbolje rezultate samo koristeci prstice – ja prvo istisnem malo kreme na svoju Real Techniques Expert Face Brush a tek nakon toga umasiram prstima. Nije mi potreban puder za fiksiranje no masnoj kozi bi bio potreban jer ova CC krema ima neodoljiv ‘dewy’ efekat na licu. Prekrivanje je po mom ukusu – solidno srednje. Vidjeti cete kako na meni izgleda u recenziji Sleek rumenila koju mozete ocekivati iduce sedmice.

It does feel very comfortable on the skin and isn’t heavy but besides all these positive things, I still think that it isn’t for everyone. So, who do I think should skip this CC cream? Very oily skins as the dewy effect is quite intense and the very moisturizing formula might slip away from the face after few hours. I think it suits combination, normal, dehydrated and even dry-ish skin better. It won’t work for those always on the run as it demands some extra time to be spent on perfecting the application. Olive and dark skins – this will look ashy on you as it doesn’t adapt to very dark skin tones. If you test it out prior to purchase, have in mind that it looks completely different swatched on hand compared to wearing it on your face – it looks amazing on the face, people. Users who don’t like scented face products – this one is very scented and smells floral to me.It doesn’t clog pores but as with every product containing SPF, I’d advise a thorough double cleanse every night before hitting the sack. Pump is great and hygienic and a little goes a long way so it will last a long time. I use a moisturizing cream underneath it as I enjoy the complete ‘plump my skin’ experience. All in all, this will be one of my summer staples this year – improved tinted moisturizer or not! If you’re interested in online purchasing, it’s currently on sale for £13.00 at Escentual right here.

Na licu je jako ugodna, uopste ne osjetim ‘tezinu’ no pored svih pozitivnih dojmova koje imam, ipak mi se cini da nije krojena po mjerilima svih potencijalnih korisnica. Za koga mislim da ova CC krema nije? Za jako masnu kozu posto je ‘dewy’ efekat dosta primjetan te mislim da bi zbog intenzivno hidratantne formulacije ova CC krema skliznula sa lica masne koze za relativno kratko vrijeme. Mislim da najbolje odgovara mjesovitoj, normalnoj, dehidriranoj pa cak i blago suhoj kozi. Takodjer mislim da nije idealan izbor za osobe koje uvijek u zurbi nanose sminku posto je zahtjevne formulacije koja zahtijeva da joj se posvetite. Moj subjektivni dojam je da za mene vrijedi dodatnog truda, sto za ostale ne mogu tvrditi. Maslinastoj i tamnoj kozi nece odgovarati, mogla bi djelovati sivkasto jer nije namijenjena tamnijem tenu. Ukoliko se odlucite da je isprobate prije kupovine (ako uopste imate priliku), imajte na umu da swatchana na ruci potpuno drugacije izgleda u odnosu kada je nanesete na lice (tada djeluje fantasticno). Osobe koje ne vole parfimiranu kozmetiku bi takodjer mogle da je preskoce jer je dosta intenzivnog, cvijetnog mirisa. Nije mi izazvala zacepljenje pora no sa svim proizvodima koji sadrze SPF je potreban oprez glede skidanja sminke i ciscenja lica. Tu je najbolje svake noci sprovesti dvostruko ciscenje prije nego se ode na spavanac. Pumpica je higijenski odabir, potrebno je malo kreme po nanosenju tako da ce trajati jako dugo. Ispod nje uvijek nanesem hidratantnu kremu jer na taj nacin lice mi djeluje posebno mekano i njegovano. Sve u svemu, ova CC krema ce biti jedna od osnovnih stvarcica koje cu koristiti ovog ljeta – bez obzira da li je ovo samo poboljsana tonirana krema ili ne. Jednostavno funkcionise! Ukoliko ste zainteresovane za online kupovinu, upravo je na Escentual stranici snizena na cca 31KM.
