I hope you’re off to an awesome weekend!
Today I am going to review a CC cream from SK-II. I received this from the Beauty Bound Asia challenge a couple weeks ago. Here is my unboxing video!
I want to review some of the other products I got as well in my future posts, but for now I will start with the Auractivator CC Cream.
CC cream is a like BB cream, just think of it as a tinted moisturiser. Instead of covering blemishes it color corrects the skin that helps with uneven skin tone or redness. The coverage can vary between brands; The Auractivator CC cream has a light coverage that looks natural and easy to blend over the skin. I know that the higher coverage the harder it is to suit darker skin types. But this one looks natural and doesn’t make it look like I have a kabuki mask on. Most all CC and BB creams have high SPF so it’s an easy one-step makeup product.
The Auractivator CC cream is made in Japan comes in a white tube with a pump. It has SPF 50+ PA+++, the highest protection available. SPF guards against UV-B rays and PA protects from UV-A rays. So in the sun protection department this CC cream has it covered. Like all SK-II products this has concentrated amounts of Pitera, a skin rejuvenating formula of vitamins, amino acids, minerals, and other organic acids. It also has 40% of the Cellumination Aura Essence brightening ingredients that will boost skin luminosity. Also the micro pearl pigment gives your skin an instant glowy look, which I love! Also its very moisturising, glides on to the skin when you apply it, and lasts through the whole day without any darkening effects.
I’ve tries this for week now and it is one of the best CC creams I’ve used. My skin looks healthy and it feels like I have nothing on my face. For those of you who like very minimal makeup I would recommend this to you. Not only does this nourish the skin it’s an easy to apply product that you can wear everyday. All I need is one pump to cover the entire face.
Now this is the not so fun part, for 30g this costs 87,000KRW that’s about 76,000USD. You can buy a decent CC cream for less than that. If you can fork out that much then great! This is a great product but if you can’t then don’t worry about there are CC creams that will give you similar results.
