Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream

Motherhood has made me a person who wants to get things done quickly. I want hacks for everything. Be it cooking, skin care or looking presentable.

There was a time I had decent skin and despite that, I liked spending long hours in front of the mirror putting on primer, foundation, concealer  (a dozen makeup brushes in action)and what not. Fast forward to now, my skin is like my mind. It is confused and tired and has blemishes. And what is the irony? I do not have hours to put on makeup (yo God I get it; you have a nice sense of humor).

Now, Bourjois as a brand is a favorite amongst all and hence, after hearing good reviews about their CC Cream this budget conscious shopper bought it.

This is a tinted moisturizer in my opinion. It has 3 pigments for Color Correction.

  • Apricot for Anti Fatigue
  • Green for Anti Redness
  • White for Anti Dark Spots

Product Promises:

Luminous complexion and smooth skin



  • Can be applied using fingers
  • My go to for that natural look
  • A little product is all that is required to give a fresh and even looking skin
  • No break outs
  • Does not cling to dry patches
  • Does not settle in fine lines even after 6 hours
  • It has SPF 15 ( Good for winter months)
  • Travel friendly small tube



  • Staying power on my combination skin is 4 to 5 hours without touch ups (I’m okay with it)
  • I could not get my perfect shade (not so obvious though)

As mentioned in the cons, the current shade I have, makes me a tad bit more brown (singing: feeling so exotic) and the shade lighter than it makes me grey (no thanks). Did I mention that my shade is 34 bronze? Now I did (lol).

For me it is a ‘make me presentable in a jiffy ‘kind of product. Apply it using fingers and powder the T Zone, put on kajal and head out of the door. But, owing to the SPF factor it is not ideal for photography.

It has medium coverage and that is exactly what I want from my foundation or tinted moisturizer. It should not mask my face rather provide an even skin tone.

Soumya’s Take: It is a good product if you manage to get your right shade. I am not sure of repurchasing it.
