Etude House Super Collagen CC Cream in W13 SPF33/PA++ (50ml)

This color controlling cream contained with magic color capsules modifies and adjusts to your natural skin tone on contact, creating a vibrant and healthy looking complexion.
cc cream with rich essence for a more moisturized and firm skin with 30% of super collagen.  
3 in 1 smart all in one cream - whitening - sun protection SPF33 PA++ - anti wrinkle

How to use:
After using skin toner on moisturizer stage,
apply proper amount of this cream (about 1 pumping amount) evenly on your face from wide area to narrow area.

So here is how this goes down.
I have been Mothers skin care dealer before (when I was working as a Skin care consultant to be precise), but when I moved away I sort of stopped hooking her up.
Last year Mother complained about her supply running out, so I decided to introduce her to the wonderful world of Asian Skin care.
She has been using Asian skin care since Summer of 2013, some products were failures but most of them successes!
One of the products scoring big in her routine was Bentons Snail Essence, Steam cream (written about here) and this CC Cream.

So this is a collaboration review between Mother and I.
She let me try out her CC Cream to review and now she is letting me relay her words and opinions to you.
Thanks Mother!

Mother hates using Sunscreen (until now Muahahah!) so I thought I would introduce her to CC Creams in an attempt for her to protect her skin from the Sun, especially since she lives in a place that has sunshine 355 days out of the year.

If this would be a thing, Mother would be the first to try!
She has tried Etude House Silky CC cream, which was too light, and Holika Holika CC Base, which was also too light even though it is colorless (she probably didn’t like the Brightening effect of it).

She isn't into the pale skin look too much!
Then Etude House released the Super Collagen CC Cream which I got to test and I really loved it, especially the fact that the light shade suited my skin tone and the darker shade looked quite a bit darker than the one I had.

So off I went and got her the darker shade.
The day came that I had to meet mother in France, and nervous me started sweating when I gave her the CC Cream for her to scrutinize the color.

Mother thoughts:

My CC Cream experience

1, 2, 3……similar to dating a man.

Initially you like him, and after getting to know him better you find some things that do not suit you and at the end you realize your life was better without him. But if you keep trying you might find the one for you!

1: Etude House Silky CC Cream felt great.
It gave me very even skin and I was surprised by how much it corrected.
I also really liked the matte finish since I have combo skin.
But I decided to find a different CC Cream since I felt that the shade was lighter than my natural skin color which is already quite white.
When the cream was nearly finished winter was almost over and I knew my skin was going to become darker with coming spring and the CC Cream would be even paler.

2: Holika Holika CC Base felt good but it didn’t have as much coverage as the Silky CC Cream.
After some hours it started to make my face oily, even though I felt I looked less pale with this one it was still too light for my taste.

3:Etude House Super Collagen CC Cream is a little bit of a mix of number 1 and 2.
It feels good and it does correct the skin tone, not as much as number 1 though.
The skin does feel very nourished and the color seems to be the best option for my skin tone.
It isn’t as matte as the Silky CC Cream but not as shiny as Holika Holikas CC Base.

The texture is quite liquid but since it is so rich you still need to make sure it is well applied to your skin for it to be even.
Once you rubbed it in though it is not noticeable on the face anymore.
I don’t notice a particular smell to it, it is pretty neutral to me.
It doesn't start fading for at least 8 hours if I don’t sweat.
I would recommend this to anyone who would like a more even skin tone but without wanting to use foundation, no matter what age.

Mois thoughts:
I still really love this CC Cream!
I have used my own quite a few times now and not only does it feel great on my face but I also get compliments for having nice skin.
And for looking like I am not wearing Make-up, which is even better!

It is really hydrating and usually doesn’t accentuate dry spots, by usually I mean it doesn’t accentuate normal dry spots, but if you have hardcore scaly desert dry skin then it might accentuate it a little.
With me it depends on my skins mood, the first time I reviewed it my skin wasn’t in great condition but it accentuated very very little (seen here), when I tested Mothers CC Cream my skin was in quite a bad state since the products I took with me were not really working for me and I didn’t exfoliate the whole week, either.
So you can see it is quite scaly in these pictures.

But if you would just stand in front of me you would not be able to tell.
Remember my camera is evil and picks up anything you could not see with your eyes!

The color adaptation abilities of this are quite wonderful!
I tanned a little while in France so shade N02 was a little light but W13 was still a little dark, but in the photos (or real life for that matter) the difference of the shades were not noticeable.
If you have normal or dry skin I think this CC Cream will be a godsend to you!
It is super hydrating and the coverage powers are really decent.
It looks very natural and the color does somewhat adapt to your own skin tone.
