It is time for a beauty blog, so I have been trying this latest CC cream from HERA, Korean brand. As you might know I have a tendency to use sunscreen as a base. I got really pale delicate skin, and it is best to prevent any spots from happening (and yes, I have tried loads of whitening products which I will definitely share with all of you in the blogs to come!)
So with my experience in using sunscreen as a base, most of the foundation or tinted moinsturiser does not stick as well, so I usually have to use a very good primer in order to have a very matte smooth effect so skipping sunscreen =( I believe I had shared my fav primer up to now (tho I am waiting for my hourglass to be delivered, so) in my previous post.
If I follow my normal weekend face routine plus sunscreen, on top adding this HERA Pure CC Cream, it is able to cover most of my reddness and pores. I had not been using any powder on top, the max is sunblock owder with 50+ spf for Ocean Park (refer my last post). I find it very lasting throughout the day, not too oily at the end of the day ( I hate blotting midday or touchup....very lazy here!) The finish is good for me on weekdays for work as well. As a minimalist, this is the best I got so far!!!
So if you have any shop that sells Korean products, make sure you check this out, it is selling around HKD $2xx. I had to re order 2 more so I am well stocked ...in the long run. Oh the most important thing, it has a sponge applicator (with a replacement sponge), you might think it will take up a lot of product, but if you make sure you squeeze at the end of the application, you will find there are still some product you may use for touch up. Otherwise, you do not waste the product as it comes out directly to the top of the sponge without soaking into the material. It is very versatile for rewash, I had wash mine yesterday and very easy to remove and plug in the new sponge.
Oh and for sunblock powder, my fav are bareminerals and OHUI (another Korean brand)!
