My March Wishlist Part 2- CC Creams


Move over BB Creams, CC cream is here! 
CC creams are crazy popular in South Korea right now. 

For those of you wondering...

What is a CC cream? (From Wiki) 
CC cream, also known as Color Control cream, is an improved and refined blemish balm cream or Beauty Balm created and developed in Korea. While BB cream was manufactured primarily as a skincare product, CC cream was developed to retain all the skincare benefits of BB cream with added nourishing ingredients and the additional aim to provide more effective skin coverage. 

What are the benefits of a CC cream? (From Wiki)The benefits of CC cream is said to include high SPF rating to ensure protection from damaging UVA and UVB rays. It also treats and covers uneven skin tones more effectively and blends with skin tone better than BB creams that sometimes appear too light on certain skin tones. A lighter texture than that of BB cream also allows for smoother application with a less oily finish, while remaining extremely nourishing to the skin.  The end effect is said to be surprisingly natural and flawlessly radiant complexion than that of BB cream.


Here's a list of some CC creams I have my eyes on:

  5. CC cream is really popular rn in Korea I really want to try one soon. I found a review of Banila Co and Tony moly cc cream and according to the review, the tony moly has more coverage. haven't found any yet for TFC but I like their packaging. *o* also I heard that Hera's cc cream is really good.

  6. I've just started to use The Face Shop's CC cream and I must say I'm really liking it! I use it with the BB essence cream as my base and finish off with a mineral loose powder. Coverage is medium (max) so you may need to use a concealer for darker spots. But other than that the colour of the cream is more of a peachy undertone so it doesn't look greyish or too white. It's marketed to last 12 hours but for me touch ups are needed after around 6-7 hours :)

    1. Thanks for the info!~ I will try The Face Shop's CC cream! I have a lot of acne scars but I hate full coverage products. I'm glad it has a peachy undertone, many Asian products tend to have a grey undertone.

  7. They are on my wishlist as well><
    But they are so expensive :(
    I only have a sample of the tonymoly aura one~
    I reckon CC cream is WHITE at first and blends into your skin tone,
    Not when its already tinted with a shade of beige :S
    But who knows, they might work really well as well^^
