Sleek CC Cream For Dark Skins

4 Comments 24 February 2014

Another day, another alphabet cream.

This new CC cream from Sleek promises to treat, correct and conceal imperfections. It contains Vitamin C to help protect skin, reduce fine lines and improve skin elasticity.


The CC cream is factor 29 which is vitally important. You might think dark skin doesn’t need SPF but if you have pigmentation issues of any kind wearing a daily SPF is essential as the sun exacerbates the problem and makes the dark patches even worse.


Sleek CC cream comes in four shades and these are the darkest two. There’s quite a difference between the colours; medium and dark is quite a broad spectrum. At the moment, Medium is too light and Dark slightly too dark. I think Dark will work in the Summer when I’ve got a bit of a tan. Until then, I’m happy to mix the two and at only £8.99 each, the cost isn’t too prohibitive.

I’m not sure what the difference is between BB cream, CC cream and tinted moisturiser but the Sleek CC cream is good for days when your skin is behaving or you want minimal coverage.

Sleek CC cream – £8.99
Available in Superdrug.

    How does it feel on the skin?
    If you have oily skin and you wear this do you need a setting powder?

      Hi Sarie
      I have combination skin and toward the end of the day my T zone would get oily wearing just this CC cream. I’d keep some powder in my purse if I were you!
