The CC cream: Pur Mineral

I'm late on the whole CC cream thing, but I'm finally getting into it, and have been searching high and low for a CC cream with fewer toxic ingredients that come in darker shades! I finally found one by Pur Minerals who have a dark selection (however no darker than medium brown) I did get a 4 in 1 powder but it wasn't a match, the CC cream however had more of a chance because it gets rubbed in rather than sit a top the skin (I think....) Pur Minerals CC cream is a moisturiser  brightener, primer, concealer and SPF foundation all in one. 

 I used the CC cream on freshly washed skin, and as a moisturiser and brightener it worked pretty well, it's quite thick but it rubs in easily, I used fingers to place cream under my eyes, cheeks, forehead and chin then used my Eco Tools buffering brush to blend into my skin, after blending it into my skin I still looked like me (not like Casper!) The CC cream self adjusts and leave skin bright and even. Personally I don't think I'd wear this CC cream on a daily basis as an alternative to my mineral foundation as I found it  a fraction to light and I like more coverage. But I would use it as a concealer and primer for skin it can be worn under other make up which is great and it's silicone free so no yucky film like layer on your skin. It's mineral based and free from things like Parabens and Mineral Oil
