The alphabet system in skincare and their differences - EE creams

And yes here we are, managed to letter E. Come on, seriously? What is next? FF creams for fantastic and flawless? Beauty trends are changing so quickly and keeping up sometimes seems impossible. 

EE creams originally started as extra exfoliation and were set to hit the market and steal back the part taken from exfoliation devices. However, when Estee Lauder launched its EE cream it came as an even effect skintone corrector which not only does it have the benefits of a BB, CC and DD cream, but also provides anti-darkening ingredients. 

In particular, it is a lighweight coloured cream (can be found in 3 shades, I've got 01 light) that aims to balance skin tone and create an even effect. The colour correcting pigments it has, promise to correct the look of dark spots, sun spots, blemish marks and redness. To tell you the truth, I haven't really noticed any correction on my spots but I don't know if it is meant to be used daily for better results. I like the fact that has SPF30 because it means I can skip the sunscreen (only during winter) and use it as a primer. It has a sheer consistency and totally transforms the look of the skin. You can't really wear it on its own, as Estee advices, but under foundation it is a great hydrating and illuminating primer only for those who have dull, dry or dehydrated skin. If you have combination to oily you better stay away from it, or at least try it before you splurge. 

Have you tried it? How did it work for you?
