Review Innisfree Serum CC Cream Cover

“Disclosure: I bought this product with my own money. I am neither affiliated with this company nor am I being paid to write this post. My opinions are honest and my own.” Complete disclosure here 

Hello, lovelies~ A couple of days ago, I woke up with an internal hordeolum on my left eye, thus the lack of reviews. It needs to be properly cleansed and maintained, so I didn't use any makeup for a few days. Now that it's all better, I can do reviews again, yeaay~ ^_^ 

Won't show you the picture of the hordeolum, but you can always google it, you know. ^_^

Okay, to start the review, I'll go with the Innisfree CC cream. Now, Innisfree is a Korean brand that is famous for their ingredient that is 'harvested' over at Jeju island. I used their Green Tea serum and BB cream once, but it didn't do much wonders to my skin, so I skipped reviewing it, lol.

The CC cream is packaged in a separate box that is printed using soy ink, so it is environmentally friendly, I guess. The box feels like it's been recycled as well, thumbs up for looking out after the environment!

The sides of the box gives information about the product in point form. Told 'ya about the Jeju thingy! I can't read the ingredients, but I'll just leave the photo here, just in case some of you can read it.

The CC cream comes in a pump dispenser that is attached to a squeeze tube, not a fan of that. However, I haven't had any problems so far, so that's a good thing. ^_^;;

The cap itself is quite secure and sturdy, another plus point there! I don't have to worry about it spilling all over my things when I travel with it.

There are two color options from the Serum CC cream line, the other one being 'Brightening'. I chose this one because it doesn't look as white as the other one. I'm a bit paranoid that if I use a light base, it'll look different from my neck. Wouldn't want that mask-like-effect on my face.

This CC cream doesn't feel sticky or greasy or heavy when I applied it on my face. It gives a slight satin finish, which is a bit glowy, almost similar to healthy skin and not cakey. As for coverage, I'd say it's around light to medium coverage because it manages to conceal my mild acne scars, but not my sun spot. Can you see the glow on my cheeks?

In a nutshell, I like that:

  • it comes with a pump
  • it has an adequate SPF and PA (SPF 35/PA++)
  • the shade isn't too light for my skin tone
  • it gives a satin finish, so it still looks like 'skin'
  • it doesn't feel heavy at all on my skin
However, I don't like:
  • the average oil control, around 2 hours on my combination/oily skin
  • the availability. I have to get this online
I hope this review gives you an insight on what the CC cream is like. I think I may be venturing more Innisfree base makeup items from now on. It kinda reminds me of my beloved Rachel K CC Cream, but I think I love this more. :) 

How about you, lovelies? Have you tried anything from Innisfree? Let me know in the comments below~ Until then, I'll see you later~ ^_^

  1. I didn't know about this CC cream. But it is great that it comes in two shades. I might try this, as soon as all my other BB/CC creams are finished :)

  2. Jatuh cinta sama finishnya tapi terhalang sama oil controlnyaa..
    Great review as always, ci! ^^

    1. Thank you, Van~ Emang mesti diset lagi pake bedak biar oke.
