I’ve been on my little CC Cream adventure lately and the latest one I tried was Secret Key Let Me Know CC Cream SPF 50 PA+++. Secret Key is a relatively new brand and I haven’t tried a ton of their products but a CC Cream seemed like a great place to start.
This like most of the CC Creams popping up in Korea promises a naked skin effect. In fact this is a fairly accurate description of these newer CC Creams formulas as they typically come in a single shade that self adjusts to a variety of skin tones in a lighter texture than you’d find in a BB Cream.
I personally recommend CC Creams for those with already good, blemish-free skin who want to perfect but not necessarily cover.
Read ahead for more details.
Secret Key Let Me Know CC Cream offers a healthy high sun protection at SPF 50 PA+++ however, I’m always applying sunscreen prior as I’m always worried I am not applying nearly enough of the CC Cream to get that kinda of protection from it.
The formula claims to contain both whitening and anti-aging ingredients plus ones to hydrate skin and keep it moisturized.
The color capsules are black, red, and yellow meant for a variety of skin tones so this starts out white but adjusts as you apply.
The texture is quite runny and not necessarily moisturizing but applies and blends out very easily without adhering to drier areas on my face. Coverage is sheer, lightweight, and breathable. It’s actually not as good adjusting to my shade as other CC Creams I’ve tried. The color is a lighter ivory beige with pink undertones and a semi-matte finish. I’d recommend this for a lighter skin tone than my own as it goes a tad pasty on me. It brightens, evens out, and perfect skin quite nicely but due to the shade it looks a tad chalky and pasty on my skin and never fully adjusts.
Although I liked the formula well enough the color itself wasn’t for me. I’d personally recommend Tony Moly’s CC Cream because at the moment I really feel that excels at everything a good CC Cream does plus adjusts to a wide variety of skin tones.
