Containing multiple ‘cc pigments’, a new generation of genuine colour controllers, this cream goes on white and naturally adjusts to your skin tone to enhance your skin’s true radiance. What’s more, it also contains built-in SPF25 coverage to protect the skin.
Providing a sheer and subtle coverage, this cream matifies the skin, leaving it looking smoother and the complexion more even.
TheChicGeek says, “Korean men have become the pioneers of men’s grooming. One of the highest spending of male consumers in the world, it was inevitable that one of the first men’s CC creams would come from this part of the world.
Let’s start by explaining first what a CC cream is. A "CC cream" is used to mean Colour Control cream, or Colour Correcting cream, which reduces the appearance of skin redness or sallowness or to improve uneven skin tone.
Many women use a CC cream as a base under their make-up as it corrects the skin’s colour using light-diffusing particles. Men can put their moisturiser on, then apply this on top.
Firstly, it has the colour (grey/white) of and looks like a standard face scrub yet is smooth. I applied sparingly and then blended it into the skin being careful around my beard/stubble.
It definitely evens out your skin tone and gives you a more uniform appearance. When it’s says ‘brighten’ this often means lighten, but this gives you a hint of colour.
I did ask a few people if it looked like I was wearing make-up and they said “no”. It definitely doesn’t feel like you are.
Men have had BB creams for a while and I thought CC would have been quick to follow. This is the first one I’ve tried and it is definitely something I’d be happy to use again. Guys with uneven skin tone and blemishes would probably find this the most beneficial”.
