REVIEW: INNISFREE REAL SKIN CC CREAM

DISCLAIMER: This was sent to me for review by My Korean Beauty Haven - an online beauty store that sells cosmetics, Korean and Western.  I am not paid in cash to do these reviews.
sadly the ingredients are in hangul and I could not find the entire listing of ingredients for this product.
Let's retrace, what is cc cream again?
from CosmeticLove.com
What is CC Cream?
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 creamwas 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.

hurray for pumps!
 it just takes a lot of pumping and you need to make sure that the product reaches the bottom of the pump's hose for your product to get sucked and come out its spout. This is the usual cc cream i'm used to.  it comes out white
and has those little color/pigment capsules so when warmed up and blended out on your skin between your fingers and face, the color/pigment capsules blend to a fair flesh tone.
that sorta gives me coverage, a veil
but even with just an SPF of 30, it is reflective, not as reflective as my previous cc cream review. but reflective none the less.
hehehe remarkably obvious i have something on my face. 
but looks fine (and not fake cakey looking) when the flash is not turned on
and gives me that look that makes me seem alive and not the walking dead.
LIKES:

  • inexpensive compared to other cc creams (us$16 on koreadepart.com) please refer or send a message to My Korean Beauty Haven for price and shipping fee
  • tea scent which is quite pleasant
  • a pump that dispenses the right amount of product with each pump.  though make sure you shake the product to make sure the tip of the pump's hose reaches the product in the container.
  • easily blendable
  • without the flash turned on, looks quite natural on my skin
  • oil control is average about 3/5 (1 almost no oil control 5 almost no need to blot off the oils from my nose, forehead and chin)
  • lasts about 4-6 hours before my real skin shows through
  • coverage is fair and lasts about 4 hours before my pores become obvious again
  • doesn't break me out
  • doesn't melt off onto the rims of my glasses
  • SPF 30 PA ++ enough for indoors
DISLIKES
  • reflective with the flash turned on!
  • not a 16 hour long wearing product
DO I RECOMMEND - for the price yes, our college girls who are in school not allowed to wear makeup should appreciate this because it looks natural but can give at least some kind of sun screen protection and look polished instead of looking like you need sleep.
