La Roche-Posay Rosaliac CC Creme – Review

I recently saw this cc cream in makeup artist Lisa Eldridge’s recent newsletter as one of her favorites.  Well you know what that means??!!  I had to have it!!  It doesn’t appear to be sold in the US yet so I had to order it on the internet from an oversea’s site.  I didn’t mind waiting for the package to arrive since I have an over abundance of foundations and cc creams in my collection anyway.

This product is labeled as a Daily Unifying Complete Correction Cream for Redness-Prone Sensitive Skin.    It is from France, therefore most of the text on the packaging is in French.  It has an spf of 30 which is a good amount of sun protection.  The pump dispenser is sanitary and easy to use.  I paid almost $22 plus shipping for 50 ml, which is equivalent to 1.69 ounces.  I felt that this was a reasonable price given the product itself.

This cc cream is currently available in only one medium, yellow toned shade.  Therefore, it’s not going to work for everyone.  I am lucky in that I wear medium shade foundations that tend to be in the yellow or warmer tones.  This cc cream provided a light coverage for me.  I will mention that last week when I took this photo and used this product daily that my skin was having a terrible flare up of both rosacea and some acne.  I don’t like to cake a lot of products on top of problem skin.  I prefer to treat the skin and protect it.  Therefore this light coverage was enough for me.

I’ve tried applying the product several different ways to see which method works best.  I used a Beauty Blender, a foundation brush and my fingers.  I prefer using the fingers best for a streak free application. The Beauty Blender worked well to add a little more product to the places it was needed.

Here I am with the La Roche-Posay Rosaliac CC Creme on my face along with some blush.

My overall impression of this product is that it is nice if you want light coverage with a good spf that will not irritate the skin.  I don’t think it’s an “out of the ballpark” product that must be ordered today from an oversea’s site.  I think you can wait until this one shows up here in the US.  I give this product a thumbs up!
