I know people who love this product and swears by it, I also know people who do not like this product as well. But I was pretty intrigued by it for various reasons. Today, I"m going to be talking the Face It Aura CC CreamSPF 30, PA ++ from the brand The Face Shop. I got mine in the shade 01 Radiant Beige.

I actually really reallylove this product. And the first reason why I love this product is because of its coverage. I know there are some people who dislike this product for this very reason but this is one of the reasons why I love this product. I"ve said this before but I have a lot of scarring left behind from when I had bad hormonal acne. As such, I usually go for products which are higher in coverage because I can"t be bothered to deal with concealers on most days. Also, it is much easier to spot conceal than to try and conceal a huge area (my cheeks) so products with higher overall coverage save me the hassle. This CC Cream offers medium to full coverage which I like, but if this isn"t your thing, then it is something to note.The second reason is probably how this cc cream looks on my face. The first day I used this, everyone at work commented on the fact that my face looked a lot fresher and brighter than normal and they asked if I did something different with my makeup. I didn"t change a single thing from both my skin care or makeup routine except for this product so I definitely have to say that this is the reason for the many compliments. I didn"t do any highlighting on that day itself if you were wondering.

This is also probably one of the more aesthetically pleasing cushion foundations out there simply because it comes in the loveliest shade of pink. I"m a sucker for most things pink so this is definitely a plus point for me.Also, the packaging is amazing. I know that there are people who do not like cushion foundations because they find it unhygienic to press the makeup sponge into the cushion to pick up product. Well, the good news is that the product is dispensed by pressing a small "button" at the bottom of the compact and the product comes out from a small hole in the center. As such, it totally erases the unhygienic factor and you can wash the sponge after every use if you wish to do so.

This cc cream gives off a really pleasant scent and this is something which I really appreciate. While I"m not usually particular about the scents of makeup products, I never say no to products which smell great. My sister really likes this scent as well!Now, on to what I don"t really like about this product. I realise that it tends to become cakey on my face after maybe 4-5 hours. My face isn"t the oiliest and most foundations/BB creams do not turn cakey on my face so I"m not particularly sure why this product tends to cake up on my T-Zone area. I know it does not claim to do so but it does not help control sebum (which leads to caking anyway) so if you have oily skin, this product probably isn"t for you.
I forgot to take photos of my skin with this cc cream when I took the photos of the product but I used it during my most recent trip to Korea so these are the photos of it on my face.
Overall:
PROS:Medium to full coverageDoes not feel heavy on my skinHygienic way of dispensing productSmells really goodBrightens up skin toneComes in a lovely pink packagingNatural finishIsn"t drying on my skinDoesn"t irritate my skinDoesn"t cause break outs
Regardless of the cons, I still really like this product and I would definitely repurchase this. In fact, I already have a backup refill for it hehe. If you have dry-combination skin, definitely give this product a shot because it really made a difference on the appearance of my skin whenever I use it!
