Secret Key Let Me Know CC Cream Review & Swatches

Secret Key Let Me Know CC Cream 4

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.

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.

Let’s take a look!
