I’ve been busy exploring CC Creams lately and Supergoop Daily Correct CC Cream is one I’ve been testing out recently. CC Creams are just starting to become fairly popular in Asia this Summer and interestingly enough right here in the US as well. Considering it took the US market well over four or five years to actually release a BB Cream I find it interesting that CC Creams caught on so quickly. But hey, can’t say the US market doesn’t take an idea and RUN with it.
So far I’ve had excellent experiences with many of the Korean CC Creams I’ve reviewed and tested. I did notice that many of the CC Creams released in the US seem to be ironically a step above the BB Creams we currently have. In Asia, that’s actually reversed with CC Creams offering less coverage and here in the US ironically CC Creams offering more.
Odd how things work out.
Supergoop isn’t quite known for their beauty products but more about their variety of sunscreen/skincare options so I thought it rather interesting that they launched a CC Cream for Summer. They don’t have a BB Cream so just skipped right to the CC Cream formula.
Let’s have a look!
I’d like to introduce you to the next CC Cream to grace the US Market, Ole Henricksen Perfect Truth CC Creme Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ($36).
Available in a light and medium shade selection the new Ole Henricksen CC Cream promising a formula loaded up with vitamins.
Take a peek!
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.
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.
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.
