Tony Moly Luminious Pure Aura CC Cream SPF30 PA++ is a self-adjusting CC Cream available in only one shade, containing 50ml of product.
As soon as the CC Creams were introduced, I wanted to lay my hands on them. Anything that claims better skin and natural coverage is just my cup of tea. CC Creams are the next step to BB Creams, but instead of offering more coverage as you would expect, they offer more skincare benefits and lesser coverage for a healthy skin.
When the utterly adorable Alice from W2Beauty, agreed to send me a couple, I was delighted. I chose two, Tony Moly Luminious Pure Aura CC Cream and The Faceshop Face It Aura CC Cream, based on the amazing reviews these both were getting.
Tony Moly CC Cream has a very minimilastic packaging. The 50ml product comes in a pump bottle. Like many other CC Creams, this one is also a self-adjusting formula, meaning the product is white containing tiny pigment beads which burst when in contact with skin, thus adjusting to our skin colour automatically. Self-adjusting formulas do have a greater tendency to NOT adjust to our particular skin colour. But then if they do, they are a lot less hassle picking and ordering online.
Long story short, Tony Moly CC Cream perfectly adjusted to my skin colour, without any white casts or orange hues. It has a very airy, light formula which blends well into my skin, leaving it slightly glow-y. It really adds radiance to my face, giving sheer coverage and smooth skin. I don't have a lot of blemishes and spots and am very happy with its coverage. This definitely feels and looks better than my Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream and on top of that it comes with more skincare benefits of color correcting, perfecting skin, moisturising and sun protection. It also has a floral scent which is kinda nice but fades after a while.
Unfortunately, if you are a foundation girl and looking for hiding your problem areas with this, then this won't work for you. But like me, if all you want is beautiful, glowy, smooth, natural-looking skin you'll love this as much as I do.
Currently, this is my perfect product for a natural, beautiful skin.
