REVIEW: Hera UV Mist Cushion SPF50+/PA+++

Oh hai~! A week ago I received this HERA UV MIST CUSHION from TWOFACEMALL and I was really curious on how this product works considering it received a lot of awards already. So I really have high expectation from this. (fingers crossed)

Lately, I've been having a lot of breakouts and I was hunting for a replacement for my current foundation. My current foundie is very heavy and suggested for oily skin. Mine is currently dry and flake-y. I was hoping that foundation will still work even with multiple layers of moisturizers. (lol, but it didn't. it just made my skin worst)

Moving on... I tried my luck and got this HERA UV MIST CUSHION. And boy, I'm very surprised!

It's a bit on the expensive side ($51) but if you were to try this product, you might consider buying 10x more boxes. (haha)

It comes with a refill so you're like getting 2 items in one purchase.

The compact itself is almost twice as big as other pressed powders but it looks a lot expensive and classy in my opinion.

This is how it looks when you open it. It comes with a sponge and has a huge mirror. The sponge is quite different also. It doesn't pick up a lot of product but with this kind of formulation, it is the best sponge that you can use for it.

Everything is sealed and new. Every refill comes with a new sponge. So sanitizing isn't going to be your problem. You just throw the old one away! (hihi)

At first I thought the powder looks weird. It has those freaky holes on it. Then when I touched the product with the sponge, I was surprised. It was called cushion for nothing. It was literally a cushion!

hera_uv_mist_cushion_spf_compact_review_swatch

It is actually a cushion soaked into the product. More like a liquid foundation. Not a powder! (okay?!) The only thing that worries me is how much product is soaked in that cushion. Will I be able to use it for more than a month? We'll see. I will update you on that. :D

Look how fluffy the cushion is... I'm not even exerting effort while doing this. :) It's just a bit hard to get the product to the sponge applicator but when you get the right amount of product on to the sponge, it is very easy to spread it on your face.

See, I told you. So many awards!

Obviously, most of you can't understand Korean characters. (ehem, like me) But these photos are pretty much self explanatory. It gives of 5 effects for the skin.

I'll enumerate my oh-so-self-translation. (based from my experience)

Makeup
> it works like a bbcream, very light and natural.

Moisture
> works really well with oily skin especially dry skin!

Sun screen
> SPF50!!! This is the highest SPF I've seen so far from makeup

Whitening
> it does help skin whiten. Particularly now that it's summer, this is on of my best product on hand.

Cooling
> it has a semi-mint scent to it and I think it's one of the reasons why it has a cooling effect on the skin.

As a Beauty product developer, I consider this as one of the best developed face product. It has a very unique technology and was made very well.

How to Use:
1. Express natural look
After skin care use puff from the inward to outward.
* Use N line color.
2. Expresses perfect cover
After skin care, apply on face; re apply on top of T zone.
* Use C line color
3. Shimmering expression 
After skin care use puff to apply one whole face or after using N or C line, use shade 22 for T zone and cheek bone.
I was quite confused when I was choosing the shade, so what I did is get N21. But after writing this article, I realized there were 3 kinds of this compact. 

1. For natural look
2. Coverage
3. Shimmer

Let me show you my before and after pictures :)


Side by side comparison.
LEFT = NO MAKEUP RIGHT = with HERA UV MIST

hera_uv_mist_cushion_spf_compact_review_swatch

Here's my full face makeup. No concealer.

Since I got N21, I'm using the natural one. But I do think that it has the right amount of coverage.
I might consider buying another one after I finish this. But in C21. :) I highly recommend this product to anyone who has a very dry skin. It works so good! Also it is very comparable with BBcreams. So if you're into those kinds of stuff, you definitely wanna have this! :)
