Hello~! Good morning! I'll be doing a very detailed review for today. I hope I won't bore you with all the information I'll be feeding you in this post. hihi. I've been using this CC CREAM exactly a week after receiving it from ZALORA. I was really expecting a lot from this product. Why? Well, it's going to be my first time to try cc cream. So if this product fails, I won't get interested to any cc cream ever. That's me. I try to avoid products that are very similar to something that already failed on me. (ι´Д｀)ﾉ
But I tell you, this product did its job very well! I know most of you already heard about cc creams through other blogs already but I still want to share some of the information I gathered from the internet. I'll be your private cc cream investigator. lol. No, I'll just copy-paste wikipedia for you. haha! （￣ー￣）
CC cream, also known as Color Control cream, or color correcting cream, is a refined blemish balm cream or Beauty Balm created and developed in Korea. BB (Blemish Balm) cream was originally formulated in Germany and has in recent years gained popularity in Asia, and is also gaining popularity Europe and North America. CC cream is widely used in Asia to provide natural-looking skin coverage. While BB cream was manufactured primarily as a skincare product, CC cream was developed to retain all the skincare benefits of BB cream with added nourishing ingredients and the additional aim to provide more effective skin coverage. CC cream was formulated with technology originating in Japan and further developed in Korea. CC cream's benefits are reputed to include sun protection as well as better coverage, blending, and treatment of uneven skin tones than BB creams. Some users find it to have a lighter texture than BB cream, which allows for smoother application with a less oily finish.
So there, we both have enough intro about cc creams. Let me show you my MIZON CORRECT COMBO CREAM now. As I have said earlier, I got it from ZALORA. The shipping was very fast. Like if you ordered today, you'll possibly receive it the next day. If you're living in the Philippines obviously. Not sure how fast they deliver abroad.
All orders are shipped and packed nicely to prevent damage. Like mine, it was placed in this huge box together with the receipt. (´∇ﾉ｀*)ノ
Btw, this product is distributed by SUESH here in the Philippines. It was launched in Korea last 2012. Being the first ever cc cream in that country, it sold more than 500,000 bottles in the shortest period of time. ∩( ・ω・)∩
If you're going to look at the front panel of the box, you'll be able to understand the text. But everything written at the back is in Korean. So if you can't read Korean characters, you have to call your friend who can and explain everything to you. LOL.
But ZALORA was so kind enough to attach a detailed info about the this cc cream in English! Very handy! It has an outstanding effects on the moisture holding for 24 hours. Has Keratin that sooth and improves the skin after use. It also decreases the roughness of the skin!
The product claims that it can make your skin look flawless. It also claims that it cam help prevent wrinkles, whitens the skin and also has SPF25 PA++ for sun protection. (´∇ﾉ｀*)ノ
Apply CC cream as skin care, and you can get as much coverage as makeup! It contains micro color capsules that allow the cream to match any skin color/tone. It improves pores and wrinkles!
This tube contains 35mL of product. And comes with a pump. Very hygienic. The only issue I have is the packaging. It was so slim and tall. Kind of hard to put in a makeup bag for some reason. It would be better if they made it a lot wider than taller. It would be easier to store or keep in a bag.
As you can see on the photo above, the product has tiny beads. And the solution is close to white shade. That is because the beads actually adopts your natural color and blends evenly on the skin after spreading it.
One pump is enough for the whole face. It is very easy to spread and doesn't dry as fast as other creams do. So you have enough time to balance everything.
It does made my skin look a lot flawless after application. And it feels smooth too! It doesn't cover my dark spots totally but it did help lighten it a bit. Thumbs up for that! ( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ
It has green tea-like scent to it. I don't know why it smells like that. But it doesn't bother me as much as other makeup products do.
It does brighten my face! See on the photo? My skin looks a lot healthier than before! ( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ I didn't experience any irritation whatsoever from this product.
This product is available for P900.00 for 35mL tube. Btw, ZALORA is giving away free samples of this cc cream for orders above P1,500 with any womens item. So don't forget to check it out and try it for yourself!
That's all for today! I hope you like this review! Have your tried cc creams too? Let me know in the comment box! (´∇ﾉ｀*)ノ
