My Review of NYX CC Light Green Cream (Discontinued)

Brittany Banks is a young woman who likes to help people in difficult situations.


My Experience

I got diagnosed with Keratosis Pilaris a year ago. It ruined my life because my face was red and blotchy all the time. I hated it because some people would look at me different. They thought I was having an allergic reaction half of the time, and I felt really annoyed and finally got tired of it all. I tried every single type of makeup I could to cover it up. I had to get rid of the red blotches on my face before it made me go crazy. Finally, I found the right product.

My Thoughts

When I used the NYX CC Cream for the first time, I thought it wasn't going to work. I put some on my fingers and slowly rubbed it in. The green pigment did throw me off a little, but I did give it a try. I didn't notice any difference for the first few minutes. I left the bathroom and waited for about 15 minutes. I went back into the bathroom and looked in the mirror. I was shocked because it worked! The shade of the color was a little bit too dark, but it worked! I ended up exchanging it for a lighter shade of green. There are 2 different shades. There is a dark green for darker skin and there is a lighter green for lighter skin. My skin ended up being light, so I used the lighter green. Green counter acts red. This shade was perfect. I have used this product ever since I have found it. I love it and it works!


Compared to Other Products

I have searched and have tried all the products that might work for redness. Some products leave your face green. I had no idea these were called face primers. I tried expensive products like Clinique and Bare Minerals. You can not just put cover up on. You have to find something that works for redness. I have also tried the redness solutions through IT Cosmetics. None of them worked. They all were too thick and hard to come off. Instead of wasting money, I ended up returning all of the products I have tried. Some places will allow you to do this and some won't, so be careful who you buy from. NYX CC Cream is a skin correcting cream. Other products that are similar skin correcting products, do not do the job at all. The other products that I have tried are similar as well, but they do not work. The redness was still there and it never went away! There are some BB Creams I have tried, but none of them worked for my red blotchy face.

Where Do I Find This Product?

This product is only available in certain countries. You can purchase this product from ULTA or off of amazon. This product would be great for you if you have hyperpigmentation like I do.
