Supergoop Daily Correct CC Cream Review & Swatches

Supergoop Daily Correct CC Cream

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!

Shiseido Anessa Perfect Gel Sunscreen SPF 50 Review

Shiseido Anessa Perfect Gel Sunscreen

Shiseido Anessa Perfect Gel Sunscreen SPF 50 PA++++ recently launched in Japan so I decided to skip out on my normal Allie SPF and try this instead.

I don’t believe Shiseido has every released a gel sunscreen prior to this in the Anessa Collection. Don’t quote me but they have always had liquid sunscreens as I recall. From my understanding the gel line will be available for a limited time but again don’t quote me on that.

Let’s take a look!

Missha Hot Burning Body Gel for Summer 2013

Missha Hot Burning Body Gel

Burn baby burn with the new Missha Hot Burning Body Gel my dears. Hot Burning Body Gels are pretty damn common in Asia and most all brands make some variation of ‘em.

We haven’t quite caught on to the trend here in the US but the idea of them kinda cracks me up. I think Bliss makes a shaping gel of some sort don’t they?

Well for Summer Missha says goodbye to cellulite and hello to firmer skin with their new Hot Burning Body Gel!

Innisfree Mineral Rose Marbling Blusher Review & Swatches

Innisfree Mineral Rose Marbling Blusher 7

Unfortunately for me Innisfree Mineral Rose Marbling Blusher is all about the pretty. This pretty little rose shaped blush is gorgeous to look at but the performance of it left something to be desired.

I never learn with this marble blushes almost ALL of the ones I own from a variety of Korea brands are typically too frosty to really act as a blush. Perhaps a highlighter? But the glow they produce is just too overkill for me.

Take a peek!
