AVON Anew 360 White CC Cream SPF 30 PA+++ 15-in-1 | BDJ Box 7-day Challenge

25 Feb

Avon Philippines just joined the CC Cream bandwagon as they released their latest product — AVON Anew 360 White CC Cream SPF 30 PA+++ 15-in-1. That’s quite a mouthful isn’t it? The bottomline is that this is more of a skincare product than a makeup. More on the moisturizer side but with high SPF content.

I got this particular one from the January-February BDJ Box. This was the first thing I noticed and loved among the rest of what’s inside the box. Anything with SPF tickles my fancy so I tried this at once… and I love it! Oh, if you want to subscribe for a BDJ Box, you can go to http://bdjbox.com/register.

REVIEW: SNOE Parallel Pigments CC Cream

10 Feb

Just when we thought BB creams are enough, come CC Creams. What is a CC Cream? It stands for Color Control or Color correcting Cream.  BB cream is primarily a skincare product with SPF to boot. CC cream is an improved version of the BB cream, developed to give the same skincare benefits of the BB cream with more nourishing ingredients to provide better coverage.

Snoe Beauty Inc. is the first to release CC Creams in the Philippines! YAY! You really have to give it to Snoe to keep up with the cosmetic trends. Here are the CC Cream samplers I got from the Snoe Beauty Blogger’s Event I attended last November 2012. You can check it out here.

Snoe Beauty Inc. calls it Parallel Pigments CC Cream. 

???????????????????????????????

It comes in 4 shades, namely:

  • Lavander – will brighten sallow skin
  • Wheat – gives a subtle glow to dull skin and will boost radiance.
  • Grass – covers red blemishes and blotchy skin
  • Honey – covers bluish under-eye circles, bruises, facial veins

???????????????????????????????Product Claims:

Snoe Parallel Pigments CC Cream Color Correction Complexion Cream

Banana. Guava. Acai Berry

.42 OZ 12g

Parallel Pigments CC Cream was developed to retain all the skincare benefits of BB cream with added nourishing ingredients and the additional aim to provide more effective color correction. 

Contains: Banana- provides antioxidant Vitamin C, vitamin B6 and Manganese for healthy skin. Guava- Vitamin K, C &lycopene to treat skin discoloration, such as dark circles, spider veins, rosacea, acne irritation and overall splotchiness, skin healing and prevention of DNA damage Acai berry- Most powerful and nutritious fruit in the world. Contains the highest level of antioxidants than any other fruit.

???????????????????????????????The sampler tubs are really useful because I can just bring it with me anywhere. It can fit even the smallest kikay kits!

???????????????????????????????

It has a smooth texture and a creamy consistency. It is not thick and heavy like other BB creams I’ve tried. Don’t be deceived by the colors because it really corrects the imperfections. It sort of neutralizes those skin problems that needs to be hidden or corrected.

It is sheer and does not really give enough coverage, but liquid foundation and loose powder can do the trick in achieving more coverage. I only need a pea sized amount for my whole face because a little goes a long way. Most of the time, I use lavander just on my under eye area and it acts like a concealer in brightening my dark circles.

There’s also a big plus that makes me want to smell it. I get giddy whenever I use it because of the yummy scent it has! Thanks to the ingredients like  banana, guava and acai berry. The scent comes off naturally after you apply it, though. I am just not sure of the sun protection factor it gives since it is not indicated so I still apply my trusted sunblock from Belo Essentials.

Defintely going to try out the other two variants from Snoe!
