(lol it's kinda hot these days my head keep thinking about sucking watermelon to cool down the body XD )
Finally, I get to try this awesome CC cream from Kosé Sekkisei that I always wanted to! If you missed anything about this brand here, a brief info on previous post regarding this fave beauty brand of mine!
Big shout out to Kosé for sending these babies to me, I'm so over the moon! Besides loving how oriental and classy the packagings are, I always love the scents they are formulated with. It's very Johnson baby powder-like to me! lol
Before I miss this out, the Kosé Sekkisei Emulsion that I received along wears a LE packaging with my fave sakura flowers on! Hearts everywhere!
I used to be a hardcore fan of BB creams (am still do) before the cushion trend hit all over beauty markets, making me stick to cushion-typed makeup most of the time because they're very convenient. Yet CC creams (I mean the "not so cushion" ones lel) never lost their places to my preference, I love them as well. They're very lightweight and gives me the most natural look when I'm not feeling like going out looking like a fab bitch (LOL)
While BB means "Blemish Balm" (I'm sure almost all girls know this) CC means "Color Correct". The name itself is self-explanatory, it corrects the skin tone by evening them out and it helps with the redness. CC cream is not for a full coveraged makeup, just enough for a very quick light and natural look. I prefer to use foundation better if I'm going for that "bitch I'm fab" look (LOL again)
Kosé Sekkisei brand was invented to bring women's dream of having a snow white's fair skin into reality so you can relate it to their White CC cream, it's here to help you achieving that glowing fair and healthy looking skin, in the most natural way without looking heavy.
Comes in a fairly moderate sized tube with a pump so rest assured hygiene freaks haha, it make it easy to control the amount of usage. Another thing that I love about this CC cream is it has SPF50+/PA++++, pls find yourself in an amazement now lol
It contains UV filter(s) like Titanium Dioxide, Octinoxate, Tinosorb M, Uvinul A Plus & Tinosorbs. How protective do you think a CC cream can be against the damaging UV rays?! //rubs eyes.
I don't really have that many flaws I wanna hide on my skin, just combating with some redness that I hate to see on so this CC cream is perfect for it. My skin is rather thin that almost all veins under my epidermis layer are slightly visible to sight, and it's not something freaky to see my face getting flushed most of the time.
All I need on the day I'm not wearing any makeup is something light with a "no-makeup finish" with an ability to cover up discoloration my skin have a.k.a flush & redness on the go.
Talking about skin pampering while giving that soft-focus effect that blurs out imperfections, this brightening Japanese CC cream has all 5 goodness (oriental herbs) combined together namely Job's Tears Seed Ferment Filtrate, Angelica Acutiloba Root Extract, Melothria Heterophylla Root Extract, Rose (Rosa Multiflora) Extract & Rehmannia Root Extract. According to my concern with my dry skin, I don't fancy matte finish much and not only this brightens up the complexion, it also helps with the moisture. My skin looks dewy whenever I wear this on.
Comes with 2 shades, 01 & 02, mine is the latter (Ochre) and the shade is the standard shade for Japanese/Asian women.
I used a very thin layer of Kosé Sekkisei White CC Cream here equal to one pump only and look at the result! Noticed the difference rite? My bare skin is slightly reddish.
For even more perfect and bright complexion, use Kosé Sekkisei in the following order Lotion (refreshing toner) > Emulsion > White CC Cream. You can find out more about their star product, Kosé Sekkisei Lotion and Kosé Sekkisei Emulsion on my previous post about them.
