Karora CC Cream for Face & Body

Karora CC Cream Review

I have been obsessed with the whole BB CC cream invasion from the very start, and when I hear of new launches my ears immediately prick up. I WANT, NEED, HAVE to have it. One such launch was the Karora CC Cream for Face & Body

Karora CC Cream Review

Karora are an Irish tanning brand, so it makes perfect sense for them to formulate a CC Cream that could be used anywhere on the body, and I was dying to see how it would compare to other brands, we all know by now that no CC Creams are ever the same. 

Karora Say: "A colour correcting, skin perfecting multi-tasking miracle cream for face and body" 

The cream is available in just one shade, which caused a bit of a problem for me. I am a regular pasty faced woman, and I found the shade way too dark to wear on my face, unless I had on a layer of tan and then covered my exposed bits with the CC Cream.

The cream comes out a greyish shade at first, but as you work it in it darkens and becomes very pigmented with an excellent amount of coverage. 
Karora actually got me out of a bind last Friday, I was white as a ghost and needed a colour on my arms and legs FAST. I used this as an instant tanner and I absolutely love the way it looked on my legs. It covered everything, it was like rubbing on a a pair of skin coloured tights from a bottle. It dries matte and has no shimmer or glitter in it which is another plus for me because it looked more natural. 

Here's my legs, one with the cream, one without

I Say: Although the CC Cream would be too dark for my face, its an excellent instant tanner and would be great to mix into your normal foundation to darken it slightly. The ingredients include Green Tea Leaf Extract, Jojoba Seed Oil and Acai Berry and make wearing it guilt free as your skin will thank you from all the benefits. 

You can find Karora CC Cream €24.99 from pharmacies nationwide now.

  4. Nicely done - if you can't use it for one thing, use it for something else. Love the finish on your legs btw - not a trace of orange in sight :-)

  5. I haven't used Karora CC on my body but tried it on my face first and wasn't impressed. My face looked dirty and didn't blend in very well. I have a skin that takes a colour but is quite porous and I was not pasty white but my face ended up looking way too dark, I wouldn't step outside the house with it on! Strange product - maybe better for the body.
