What's it gonna be?

I read that it will depend on your needs, however, the difference between BB Creams and CC Creams is very subtle. Personally, I thinks it's a marketing scheme (how naughty of me!)
According to Sephora.com and from personal experiences, BB Cream provides a heavier coverage whereas CC Cream gives a lighter, more natural finish. BOTH are for brightening, anti-aging, moisturizing, and sun-protection.
So, here we are, with the luxury to actually try out any one of these products. And after contemplating of which CC Cream to purchase, I decided on Innisfree Real Skin Color Control SPF 30 PA++ from Cosmetic-Love and is wonderfully affordable at $18.43.
"... contained with magic color capsules modifies and adjusts to your natural skin tone on contact, creating a vibrant healthy glow."*
- Brightens skin with Jeju camellia ingredient
- Creates a protective veil to moisturize skin all day long
- Protects against UV rays
- Smoothly adheres to skin to create a flawless look**
- Reasonably priced at less than $20 at Cosmetic-Love website.
- Light herbal scent- not like perfume
- Very lightweight
- Color changes to match your skin tone
- Significantly brightens the skin, giving off a dewy finish
- No ashiness
- Stays on for nearly the entire day
- SPF and anti-aging benefits
- Its dewiness can look greasy (which can be fixed with powder)
- Very light coverage
My skin has not reacted negatively with this product, such as pimples. I feel that the ingredients are really natural because it does not smell like perfume and it feels very light on my skin. Because I am recently not breaking out, I just put this CC Cream on and counter the dewy finish with loose powder. Update: I am not very satisfied with it, however, because of it's too light coverage.
|Left: CC cream goes on white. Right: Matches the skin tone when blended well. There is more brightness as compared to the area without the product.|
|Left: A very naked face- trouble areas are the glabella, dark circles, and redness around the nose. Right: There really isn't much of a difference because of the CC cream's light coverage but it did make my face brighter and fairer.|
To make some sense of my bare, lack-luster face, I put on concealer, loose powder, and a bunch of other potions on my face. :)
I will list down the other products I used here on another post. Many of them were from my Cosmetic-Love haul. :)
Have a good day!
