I'm so happy that I made to post this before I'm going back to my college..
Anyway, today I'm going to review a CC cream from The Face Shop. You may be familiar with this because I reviewed the older version here. I just bought this recently after a long thought because cushion type foundation is becoming more popular now and as you may know, the latest hit which is from Etude House. Probably because their brand are more global and a cheaper alternative for the cushion foundation, I saw quite amount of reviews for the product. Well, of course I'm tempted but thinking that there are possibilities that it would breaks me out like the previous Etude House BB cream, I'm holding back from buying them.
P/S : I'm aiming for IOPE or Hera but both of these brand are so expensive >_<
Anyway, back to the product, I finally made a decision to keep using the cc cream from The Face Shop because it works really really well on me. There are a lot of compliments from my friends and family that my skin looks really nice with this on. Usually we tend to stay with the product because of this kind of reason right? hehe..
This new version is added with higher SPF. The previous one is only SPF30 and this one is SPF50 which is a plus point for me since Malaysia is undeniably hot and I'm too lazy to put on sunscreen.
Product Name : The Face Shop Face It Aqua UV Color Control Cream SPF50+,PA+++
Price : Original (RM59.10), with discount, (RM57.30)
Where I got this : here
Look how shiny the compact is with the blue sparkles.
You can change the refill by pushing this round thing at the back of the compact.
I wanted to show how glowy it is :D
Better used the sponge provided! :)
I never put full face picture while reviewing so here is the full face of mine to show the after effects of applying the cc cream. Sorry that I don't have before picture but I think you can guess mine based on this picture. Edit free and you can zoom in if you want..lol
For now, I only had the redness on my cheek because using Missha Treatment Essence really helps my skin to improve :D
opps..sorry for my messy room. My sister had an engagement this coming month so she throw everything into my room because I'm living in my hostel mostly.
I used flash in the photo because the light is coming from the back so my face would look really dark if I don't .To my surprised, the cream doesn't really reflects with the flash on!Isn't that awesome?
I suppose to bring the older version of the CC cream with me but I left it at my hostel so I can't make a comparison picture of the different shade of the two though both are #02 Natural Beige. I guess it's because the high SPF content in it.
At first, I was a bit surprised to see the lighter in color because the older one just matched me very well. But after applying, though it might a bit lighter but it blends to my skin nicely after a few minutes.
The texture is thinner that the previous one too. It is a bit easier to apply because of the texture though it gives the same light-medium coverage to my skin.
Other than that, this really smells refreshing! I noticed that the two CC cream doesn't smell the same which I prefer this newest version smell better because it lighten my mood..haha
The lasting hours is really good as it stays on my skin for about 8 hours, more or less. The finish is dewy but not much as the older one. I guess this is less dewy and it feels really light and non-sticky. The CC cream had a powdery finish to it.
Other than that, I notice for both of the CC cream, you must used the sponge provided because I try to use my fingers and it become cakey afterwards. And don't worry about the products content as the sponge is not the type that would absorb the product more than applying.
The product says this has a cooling effect. I'm not too sure of this because it doesn't feel like they put menthol in it but I would updated if I notice it next time.
- Stays long about 8 hours (more or less)
- Powdery finish ( a bit on the dewy side)
- Non-sticky and feels really light
- Nice refreshing fragrance. (Not overpowering which you would not notice after few minutes)
- High SPF content
- Maybe it's a bit lighter than my skin color?
- Can't think of any..hehe
I really really love the CC cream :D
Well, you could even tell based from my review..hehe
