Innisfree Real Skin CC Cream Review & Swatches

Innisfree Real Skin CC Cream

CC Creams are hitting hard this Spring in Korea and many brands are introducing their own variation. The latest one I tried is Innisfree Real Skin CC Cream which also fits into the color adapting formula that many of the brands producing CC Cream are using.

I am very impressed with the color changing technology on CC Creams as they seem to indeed do a fairly good job of fitting my exact skin tone and so far I’ve only had one that was a tad too pasty and light. Outside of that it appears the skin adapting technology is really working out quite well.

Let’s take a look at Innisfree Real Skin CC Cream.

Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Review & Swatches

Almay Smart Shade CC Cream1

I think part of the irony of Almay Smart Shade CC Cream is the fact that the Almay Smart Shade Foundation is more of a CC Cream than this is.

At the moment CC Creams are pretty popular in Korea and we’re seeing some of that in the Western market. Most of these CC Creams in Asia are white, self adjusting formulas with lightweight textures. Remind you of anything? Almay’s Smart Shade Foundation is actually white and self adjusting….

I find it funny that their CC Cream actually doesn’t go the self adjusting root. It’s unusual that their original, old formulated foundation is more a CC Cream than a new product they just launched.

Oddness!

Nature Republic Super Origin CC Cream Review & Swatches

Nature Republic Super Origin CC Cream

Nature Republic has two new Super Origin CC Cream (Complete Control Cream) formulas available in Korea at the moment. There’s a tinted version as well as a brightening version. I do suggest you go into a purchase for the tinted version as the brightening one is more of a primer versus an actual CC Cream.

Holika Holika Face 2 Change CC Cream Review & Swatches

Holika Holika Face 2 Change CC Cream

Holika Holika Face 2 Change CC Cream Color Control Cream SPF 32 PA ++ was recently released in Korea. Actually, Holika Holika Face 2 Change CC Cream is one of a few products in the Face 2 Change range but I’ll tell you more about those in upcoming reviews.

CC Creams got a big push this Spring in Korea and more and more brands are launching their own variations. At this point, I can honestly say, I am in love with the CC Cream formulas I’ve tried and dare I say find them even more wearable and user friendly than some of my personal favorite BB Creams. Tony Moly, Skin Food, Etude House, and Holika Holika are just a few of the many brands that are doing CC Creams at the moment.

It Cosmetics Anti-Aging Full Coverage CC Cream Review & Swatches

It Cosmetics CC Cream

After testing the new It Cosmetics Anti-Aging Full Coverage Physical SPF 50 CC Cream for the past month I thought it was about time to review and swatch it for everyone.

This is quite an exciting product as it has the coverage of a BB Cream but the skincare benefits of a CC Cream plus it’s available in a wider range of shades from light to dark.

Interestingly enough it’s actually made in Korean and contains snail secretion as one of the top ingredients so you know its going to be moisturizing for those of us with drier skin!

Take a look!
