Hello everyone~ Today, I am reviewing my most loved products right now. To follow the trend of CC Cream, I decided to try out The Face Shop Aura Color Control CC Cream in #2 Natural Beige. Keep reading if you’d like to know more about it~
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT IT
Face It CC Cream is a color controlling cream that brightens your complexion and keeps tour morning intact without any darkening.
This CC Cream comes in a really unique packaging. Unlike other CC Creams, which comes in a tube or a bottle form, this CC Cream comes in a compact form with a little air cushion sponge. It’s quite big, but it only contains 20g which is even less than the ” oh i thought so small ” Etude House CC Cream that I reviewed here or the Banila Co CC Cream, I also reviewed it here . When you open the CC Cream by pushing a button on one side of the cream, you’ll see a sticker, and you need to peel it off before pressing on the button which you will get the CC Cream from. At first when you buy it, you need to press on the button 4-5 times for the CC Cream to actually come out. But after, one-two lightly pumps would cover your whole face. I’d say a little goes a long way. This CC Cream has a combination of slightly pink and gray color on the box, making seems very professional, lol.
The air cushion sponge works really nice as I use it everytime I wear this CC Cream. It’s washable too ^.^
SCENT AND TEXTURE
This CC Cream has a hint of floral scent, but not overwhelming. You can hardly smell it though, since I can only smell it through that small hole. Once you take it out and blend it in your skin, the smell just goes away, so I really like that! The texture is more like a light bb cream+ a light cc cream. It’s very light, but it’s thicker than any CC Creams I’m trying out ( I currently have 5 ). Anyways, this CC Cream doesn’t feel heavy on your skin at all, it’s just very natural and it’s very easy to blend out.
This CC Cream has quite high coverage for CC Creams in general actually. Normally, my other CC Creams wouldn’t cover a lot of stuff such as red pimples or anything that is more noticeable. But, it can be fixed with a little bit of this CC Cream! Love the nice, light to medium coverage! You can build it up actually!
I think it’s due to the glowy/dewy finish, this CC Cream is not a good choice for people with oily skin! I think I would wear it more in the Spring, Winter and Fall^.^ I reduce the brightness a bit so you guys can take a clearer look of the oil!
I love the finish look of this CC Cream! Since I am a big fan of that natural dewy look, this was the perfect choice for me every morning! It really does brightens up my complexion as well as covers a few of my imperfection! For those who’s the skin is very nice already, this is a great choice. But for those who’s not, you can top it off with a BB Cream for better coverage! This stays on for pretty long time, around 5-6 hours! If you want it to last longer, try it with a primer! It surely works! And it gets really oily after 3-4 hours, so I suggest you use a powder or a blotting paper after that!
WHERE TO BUY
You can purchase this at an eBay store called iamlove-shop for almost $24 and free shipping! They have lots of brand that other stores don’t carry and are very rare such as OST, Milky Dress, Secret Key, Ciracle, ElishaCoy, and many that you can only find atwishtrend.com. However, if you do not like to shop on eBay, don’t worry, they also have an online shop at cosmetic.jolse.com for the same price as the eBay shop, so I guess it’s like shopping on eBay, but you have more selections to choose from ! they sells whole lot more products such as Etude House, since now they can not carry them on eBay anymore. The shipping for both sites are also free! yayy! However, you won’t get a tracking number. Don’t worry, you can still pay $2.50 for a easy tracking number along with standard shipping and of course, my love, the EMS for $22 or more. They also provide free standard shipping for orders over $50 and free EMS for order over $200 ! Yippie, pretty awesome!
They are based in Korea, so their products are 100% genuine so don’t worry! Also, they seems to have really fast shipping, it takes 10-15 days for parcel to arrive! For me, I’ve order from their eBay shop before, and it didn’t even take 15 days, haha awesome consider it arrived in US all the way from Korea.
