Hello besties 😘😘
As recent posts theme is my daily makeup product, today i am going to review my other favourite stuff which is ETUDE HOUSE CC (Correct and Care) cream in Silky. I got this from a friend as a birthday gift last 2 december 2015, and have been using it everyday. She knows i use ETUDE and have been eyeing this product. Thank you Felita ♡
ETUDE HOUSE describe it has 8 in 1 Multi function benefits:
" This multitasking, 8-in-1 formula hydrates, primes, conceals, treats, and protects skin at an easy single step for a healthier complexion, inside and outside.
This CC cream is already has SPF 30/PA ++, so no need for additional sunblock (convenience right? i dont like using layers of makeup :p )
Let me share you a little information about SPF and PA
*SPF is Sun Protection Factor, which define the ability to block harmful sun's UVB rays. UVB rays cause sun burn and skin cancer.
If your skin usually get burn in 10 minutes, applying SPF 30 will leave you 30 times longer in outdoor before you get sunburn (10 minutes x 30 = 300 minutes)
*PA define the ability to protect us from harmful UVA rays which cause premature skin aging. The level is defined from + (least) to +++ (strong). So this ETUDE HOUSE CC cream with ++ provide middle or moderate protection
Note that we should apply sunscreen/sunblock everyday even on rainy or cloudy days. Because UVA and UVB from sun can still penetrate through cloud.
OK so let's now check The Beauty and Pocket personal review ♡
* The packaging is plastic tube with pump. It is light weight, and the pump make it safe from accidental squeeze. So dont worry to put it in soft makeup pouch.
It has white colour, with ETUDE symbol on top of it. So cute 😍
*It kinda looks flat on the photo because use it for 1 year already, but actually there is still much product inside. Only need little amount, so i believe this will still last for 1 month
2. COLOUR AND TEXTURE
*Colour is white when first get out of the tube, and will turn to beige after blending. Thats why at first dont worry if you feel it is too white for your skin tone. It will adjust and leave you with brighter and radiant skin without looking too pale
Left: before blending, Right: After blending
*Texture is liquid and light. It doesnt feel sticky at all, even for me who live in humid and tropical country Indonesia. Thats why i love and use it everyday
*The coverage is light. It is lighter than ETUDE HOUSE Precious Mineral Any Cushion. I believe since the point is correct and care so it works more to unjust the face colour complexion. However for me thats more than enough. I often just use this cc cream without any other product
*In days when i want more complete makeup, more coverage, i will combine it with ETUDE HOUSE Any Cushion and ETUDE HOUSE Concealer
*Here are photo comparison of bare face, only cc cream, and cc cream + any cushion + concealer
Bare face: reddish cheek, uneven skin tone
Only ETUDE CC Cream in Silky
(Less red cheek, brighter and more even skin tone)
ETUDE CC Cream + Any Cushion + Concealer (complete makeup. Flawless skin, more brighter and even skin tone, more coverage)
4. LONG LASTING
*My face is combination (only oily at t-zone)
Light physical activites since my job is marketing
Work in air conditioner room
* With that condition above, after 5 hours, usually the T zone is oily (need retouch), while other part is totaly save. If i use powder after cc cream, it will be 7 hours before need retouch
*Since this is gift, i dont know the price
But online shop sell about 150.000 - 160.000
(Usd 10.7 - 11.4)
*I will say it is affordable since it last more than 1 year even for everyday using
OVERALL RATING: 8/10
REPURCHASING: Yes or No (i have been eyeing some new ETUDE product launch recently, but this baby works good so maybe i still repurchase)
Are u interested to try this baby?
Till the next post
