[Review] The Face Shop Aura Color Control CC Cream SPF30 PA++

So I was given this from The Face Shop to try out. And upon opening the beautiful press kit (yes, kudos to you marketing team for such a pretty box), I was quite stunned to see a compact instead of the usual CC cream in a tube.

The Face It Aura CC Cream comes in the form of a compact case complete with a face sponge and mirror.

There is a tab that you press down to get the CC cream out. And I was in for yet another surprise; this was a skin tone shade CC cream! I had been reviewing other CC Creams previously and all were whitish in color. So I was really psyched about trying this one out.

I was given the one in 02 Natural Beige to try which I presume is one of the most commonly used shades or so I’d been told.

Anyway, I tried using it with the given sponge but I was not used to that. Thus, giving up eventually and ended up using my fingers instead. It has a creamy texture (like a BB cream) that goes on smoothly and best of all, it becomes matt rather instantly. I did not even have to apply loose powder. It felt just right on my skin.

So you know how some BB creams can still appear too light for my somewhat tanned skin tone? This surprisingly blended pretty well. And because it had a beige tone, it gave me the coverage that I needed. I believe the Face It Aura CC Cream is one of the CC Creams in the market that comes with the highest coverage. As you can see, it did quite a good job of covering up my broken capillaries (those tiny red veins on my cheeks).

I also like the fact that it comes with SPF30 and PA++ so I can skip my sunscreen when using this. Some might like the compact packaging because it is easy to carry around even if you do not want to bring your whole cosmetic pouch along. The mirror in the compact comes in real handy when you can’t find a powder room to touch up.

You can check the Face It Aura CC Cream out at all The Face Shop outlets :)

If you are looking for 2-in-1 product – a BB cream together with a sunscreen. Then you’re in luck because Za has came up with a BB cream that serves both purposes. Armed with an SPF of 43 and PA+++, you can leave out one additional step in your makeup regime, thus, saving some precious snooze time.

The Za Total Hydration BB Cream UV SPF43 PA+++ will be available in Watson stores come May and is retailing for S$15.90.

What does it features?

Amino Mineral Complex deeply moisturizes to heighten & reinforce the skin’s protection barrier and makes skin resistant to damage. The Prism Enhancer smoothly removes excess surface cells and replenishes generous moisture. While Sebum-absorbing powder imparts a non-sticky finish to keep skin feeling fresh. Vitamin B derivative energizes the skin’s inner cells to give skin a healthy-looking glow.

We were invited to the preview event was held at Sogurt where we got to try out the BB cream for ourselves as we enjoyed a free flow of yogurt.
