[REVIEW] The Face Shop Aura Color Control Cream SPF30/PA++

Since I'll be busy started next week and probably won't post reviews everyday, I diligently doing review post every day this week. Thank you for your kind feedback, I'll work hard to post the best review I can do :)

Anyway, it's time for another CC cream review! Since so many of you emailed and message me to review Etude House CC cream which I actually haven't try nor buy it because I just realize that my skin is really sensitive to the newer Etude House BB Cream.It tends to broke me out if I wear it for 3 hours and more plus I read a review on them saying that the CC cream is too sheer.

Just pray that I would get the samples later on or any website do sales in the future, I might consider on trying it :)

Back to the main point, today I'll review the CC cream from TheFaceShop which is the Aura Color Control Cream sample that I got. I think they had another CC cream in tube type which I think the name is pretty similar. This one is the MULE-like packaging CC cream which cost a bit because of the packaging I think.

Update : The packaging of the CC Cream!

It is actually pretty small but can last about 3-4 times wear for me. A little goes a long way~

Before and after. It simply brighten my skin.

It looks like there are a bit oil there but this is a zoom in picture. So the real thing isn't that much.

Before and after. It is actually pretty hard to show my bare skin because its full of acne scars and redness TT
The right one is after I applied the CC cream.

Thanks to the sample I got, I finally can try other CC cream aside Nature Republic. Compared to the Nature Republic CC cream, I would say that I love this more than the Nature Republic CC cream because it gives a bit of coverage! It was a surprised because I don't expect it at all. I guess this is more to the BB cream side which you may have to use BB cleanser or oil cleanser to remove it completely.

Other than that, the CC cream is beige is color and has yellow undertone to it. So it matches my skin more though it's one shade lighter but I can fix them with powder to correct the color a bit.

Different from Nature Republic CC cream, this CC cream is on the waterproof side. I sweat and still don't see that the cream budge nor spoiled on my face. I think I could wear this alone :D

The cream is moisturising but not too oily. Although the oil test above shows that this CC cream contains a bit of oil but when I apply this onto my face, it doesn't feel oily at all. It makes my face looks glowing but not too overpowering which I love it because I had an oily skin and I wanted to prevent the shiny looks as possible.

For the thickness of the cream, it's not too thick and not too watery either and it is easy to blend on face plus
 it doesn't feel sticky on face either.

Overall, I really like this CC cream because the shades is closed to my skin tone plus the healthy glow it gives If you ask did I consider buying the full size, I already purchased it!hehe :D
