What is CC Cream from tgwholesale
CC cream, also known as Color Control cream, is an improved and refined blemish balm cream or Beauty Balm created and developed in Korea. BB (Blemish Balm) cream was originally formulated in Germany and has in recent years gained a huge following in Asia and is quickly making its way to Europe and the USA for its skin-regenerating properties. CC cream is now also widely used in Asia to provide natural-looking skin coverage. 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. CC cream is the newest miracle beauty product available and was formulated with technology originating in industry-leader Japan and further developed in Korea.
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.   From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Color Control Cream that contain various skincare ingredients and supply nutrion to skin and micro color capsules that naturally correct the skin tone.

swatchie time
it's the barely there but with a veiled look thing
yet another face product from Holika Holika that gives me an airbrushed look, must be the kind of dimethicones they use.
pic below was taken without the flash on.
and for a product with spf 37 it's ot at all reflective! pic below has the flash turned on
and it looks natural
a good transition/gradation shade from chest to neck to face 
LOVES:

  • the scent, i love the scent, it's milder than the scent they used in the aqua petit jelly bb
  • really easy to spread
  • it doesn't oxidize on my face
  • the finish it's not too matte not dewy (since pinays think dewy is shinee, i mean shiny!) - it looks like an airbrushed finish
  • good pore coverage
  • doesn't slide off my face or melt off onto the rims of my glasses
  • doesn't pool into puddles in my pores
  • is not reflective so you can wear this and take photos with this on
  • didn't break me out
  • i don't need to apply bb cream or foundation on top of this
  • oil control is average about 2.5 / 5 (1 = almost no oil control 5 = hardly needing blotting from the nose)
  • 50 ml for PhP855 not bad actually because a little goes a long way so it'll take you a while to finish this
DISLIKES:
  • doesn't last long on the face, just about 6 hours
  • depending on the day, it doesn't stay matte so it doesn't absorb to much humidity
DO I RECOMMEND: yes, the finish alone is just really nice. and for people who want to try cc creams this is one i can recommend, try the number 2 if you have a warmer deeper complexion than mine.
