BB...I mean CC Cream

If you have always found BB creams too light, or oily and overtly moisturising, CC Cream is Korea's answer for you. The one that gets raved about a lot is by Rachel K, who I believe is a beauty pageant winner, Miss Singapore 2009 to be precise, so advice coming from her one surely can trust.

How it's mainly different from a BB cream is that it has better blending abilities which makes it compatible with most skin tones. It doesn't leave a white cast in reality or photos, has an impressive SPF of 35, is made of natural mineral ingredients and importantly dries to a matte finish. Although matte, the texture of it remains really light and gel like, not heavy like a tinted moisturiser or foundation.

I love the packaging, the price is reasonable and it is likely to be a hit amongst those with oily/combination skin type who don't like wearing heavy looking or feeling foundations on an everyday basis. My only gripe with it is coverage. It is surely more pigmented than Garnier and Liz Earle but not so much that I can flaunt it confidently outside home, especially due to my slightly uneven skin tone.

As you can tell, the shade is a neutral beige with a hint of pink in it to brighten sallow skin tones. Available in 3 shades, it seems to contain some fabulous ingredients that are actually great for your skin as opposed to the ones that are just proposed but western brands to be present in their BB creams.
