The Face Shop: Color Control (CC) Cream (02 Natural Beige)

13 Oct

Average retail online: $20.00

Store retail: ₩24,900 ($23) I don’t know why the in-store price is cheaper. Be careful about authentic products.

This is the Aura Color Control Cream.  “Face It CC Cream is a color-controlling cream that brightens your complexion.”

This is the first CC cream that I’ve used. My skin is oily and prone to breaking out, so I thought I’d see if this CC cream was a better fit for me. CC cream is targeted to help people with covering up redness and help prevent break outs, more so than the average BB cream.

Cons
I would wear this to work, where I am moving around and get hot easily, and here are my thoughts:

The oil control isn’t great. I would look very shiny and oily after a few hours.

The color is a little too yellow for me, although it may fit others better. It did blend to my skin OK though.

Can you tell which side has the CC cream?
The left side is with the CC cream. The right side is without any makeup.

Pros
This covers up the redness well, but not necessarily any better than other BB creams.
before after
It didn’t break me out. I still had a few occasional break-out episodes though.

I really like the packaging–I haven’t seen anything personally like it. It looks like a powder pact, but there’s a small hole in the middle on the inside. You push a button and the product comes out. It’s easy to control the amount. It’s also very hygienic.

It also comes with an applicator pad, which I never used. But it feels nice and is a cute hot pink color.

Light beige shade (above): Lioele Triple the Solution BB Cream
Yellow beige shade (lower): The Face Shop CC Cream

Here is a comparison of this and a Lioele BB cream I reviewed.

I give this 2.5/5 stars.

I bought this and used all the product. This shows that it was a fine product, however, I’ve used better BB creams. I wouldn’t necessarily buy it again.

    Great review! Maybe you are the lightest version of the 2 and that’s why it looked to yellow? It does make your skin look nice from what I can tell ^.^

      Could be! When I was at the store, I actually didn’t notice if there were two shades, so I just took one. Thank you for the comment ^^

    Yes there are 2 shades! I went in to the face shop not long ago and I tried the #1 and it looked brighter and not as yellow as #2 ^^
