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.

Let’s take a look!

Lavshuca Candy Pop Eye Base Review & Swatches

Lavshuca Eye Base

Lavshuca recently introduced a range of eyeshadow singles entitled Candy Pop. Along with this release Lavshuca Eye Base Primer makes an appearance in two different shades (pink and beige) which I decided I might as well try out.

I really don’t need another base at the moment but the cute pink tin was partially responsible for my spontaneous purchase, come on, cut me a break, you know I can’t resist cute packaging.

Sigh.

If you already own KATE Eyeshadow Base Primer you probably don’t need the Lavshuca Eye Base however, I will say that it actually seemed to perform a little better than the KATE formula. Of course, I might be just imaging that as KATE and Lavshuca are sister brands created by the same parent company, Kanebo.

InnisFree Apple Juicy Cleansing Oil Review

InnisFree Apple Juicy Cleansing Oil

Innisfree Apple Juicy Cleansing Oil has been keeping my vanity company for a few months now so I thought I’d give it a review. Innisfree is a Korean brand which makes (or made) one of my very favorite BB Creams and it sincerely doesn’t get enough love here on my blog because it really is a great brand with some super offerings.

Apple Juicy Cleansing Oil is one such brilliant offering!

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!
