So its been another month and that means its time for another Etude House Pink Box review! You would have seen in my previous Pink Box post that this time it contained the ravedddd about CC cream, and also their new Cotton Fit BB (and an eyeshadow quad! Which I havn't tried >.<). Here's a detailed review on which one probably suits you better and which you should.. try.
CC Cream in Glow
Little brown capsules in white cream. They break apart when you blend it with your fingers, releasing the colour into the cream.
Left: Glow Right: Silky
Glow: Thick gel, stays white till you take more effort and time in blending, colour capsules feel slighttttlyyyy sandy and gritty. Finishes with a glow like K-pop stars.
Silky: Smooth liquid, blends fast into skin colour, colour capsules break fast and not gritty at all. Feels light and semi-matte.
Check out the glow~
CC cream from Etude House means Correct & Care, which aims to correct skin colour and cares for the skin by providing 8 skin benefits like Anti-Ageing, Stress Relief, Hydration, Whitening, Sun Protection, Tone-Up, Smooth Texture and Luminosity. I know, you would be cynical about the claims of providing 8 skincare benefits in one cosmetic product, and you know what? Me too. I've used it for a month on days where I use makeup, and I would say that it works well for me. It makes my skin feel more moist and hydrated, and it doesn't feel thick even though its texture is thicker than the silky one. I really like the moist feeling because its not what most foundation can offer me; most of them ended up being oily. Honestly, I would use this on its own if it provides better coverage (pimples....) but I use it under my Cotton Fit BB cream. Because it also has SPF40, I feel really safe to expose myself to Sun and not layer on too much SPF stuff. This would do. Repurchase? YES, Silky one though. I felt that the silky one felt lighter and more suited for me. Oh! And both of them does not have much colour or coverage, so it would slightly tint your face only.
Precious Mineral Cotton Fit BB Cream in W13
So now here's the question.. BB? CC? Both?
For me, I would take both CC Silky and BB Cotton Fit. In short, BB is more for coverage as a cosmetic product and CC is more for skincare benefits and less as a cosmetic product. You should apply CC cream as a base to supply skin with long-lasting moisture and skin benefits while applying the BB cream over to cover blemishes if needed. If your skin doesn't have blemishes, you can use the CC Cream alone but if you need some coverage on redness, blemishes, scars or colour uneveness, the BB cream would be good over the CC Cream.
These CC Creams & BB Creams are really affordable, and I would take both without questions! Check out Etude House Global's Facebook Page for more info on these awesome new product!
