Last year, BB-Cream was a huge hit to the beauty world especially here in America. This year the trend is moving on to CC-Cream.
So what is CC-Cream ?
CC-Cream basically means Color Control, Complete Care, Color Change, depend on each individual company. Simply understand, it is a better/upgraded version of BB-Cream. They both have the same sun protection feature, but there are some differences between the two.
The differences between BB-Cream and CC-Cream.
BB-Cream is focus more on coverage, trouble spot area, wrinkle care, whitening. CC-Cream, they are focus on adding nourishment, color control, skin care, elasticity effect. The draw back on most CC-Cream is less on coverage.
Many people think that CC-Cream will give a lot more coverage than BB-Cream since it claim to be “Color Change”. In my opinion, Yes ! This CC-Cream is claim to be “Color Change”, and it does wonderful job to match my skin tone, eliminate redness and reduce any discolouration on my skin. BB-Cream has more coverage because they are Blemish Balm, which focus more on treating and coverage ance, scar, trouble spot. CC-Cream is not made for complete coverage. But you can always combine CC-Cream and BB-Cream for a better result !
After all the hype about CC-Cream, I bought my first CC-Cream from CosmeticLove. It is TonyMoly Luminous Pure Aura CC-Cream.
My thought on this product :
Luminous Pure Aura CC-Cream contains SPF30 PA++ to protect the skin from UV light. According to TonyMoly this CC-Cream can be use as the last step in skin care and a primer for foundation or BB-Cream.
This CC-Cream makes your skin has a perfectly natural tone with a moisture/shiny effect. The color capsule pops and mixed up to match your skin tone, conceals redness and imperfection.
I am impressed with the packaging of this CC-Cream. As soon as I pick up this product and I can tell that it doesn’t feel like a cheap plastic bottle in your hand. An off-white bottle with a black cap make it more classy and elegant.
If you have sensitive skin and allergy make sure to check out the ingredient list.
My Impression :
As soon as I received this product in the mail box, I open and try it for the day. Wow ! I have to say it match my skin tone perfectly, without making my skin way to pale. This CC-Cream is added to my daily make-up routine as a primer to prep for my BB-Cream.
This product goes well on the skin by its own, but I like to combine it with BB-Cream for better coverage. TonyMoly promote this product as “Color Change” CC-Cream, as I said before that the meaning of the term CC are vary upon different company.
This CC-Cream is suitable for my oily skin. It gives me a bit of shine, but not oily shine, and medium sheer coverage. My advice would be use less is more, I find that it difficult to blend when I over pumped the product and try to apply it to my skin. Start with less if you are going to use BB-Cream or Foundation over top. It usually stay on for at least 8 hours for me without touching up. Remember “less is more” !
The after effect of this CC-Cream is luminous, healthy shine effect. If you have a great skin this CC-Cream can be great by itself. I like to use it with a BB-Cream for extra coverage.
As you guys can see on the After picture, my skin tone is even and I love the luminous, healthy shine effect of this CC-Cream. You guys can see how my skin is bright and shine just like a paparazzi natural look of most Kpop artist that you see in the news, especially Super Junior !
This CC-Cream really does its job on “Color Change”, eliminate redness, reduce discolouration, and add elasticity effect. It is difficult to find the right CC-Cream that can match your skin tone and give you a healthy looking shine. This CC-Cream has a wonderful ability to match any skin tone naturally and give the skin a luminous finish. I am sure you guys will love this product too because I am loving it right now, and thanks to its SPF 30 PA ++ my skin is complete protected from the UV light. This CC-Cream will be your perfect match in any occasion !
