Since last haul post, many of you have been suggesting that you want to see the review on the Peripera Heart Glow CC Cream! I really wanted to review this as well, because it's my first CC cream! Ohh Ahh *_*
This is my second Peripera product! I really loved the their Milky Tint and I hoped this won't disappoint as well. And it seems like Peripera has some really cute and unique packaging design just like their tints! *A*
I believe this Heart Glow line also has a pact available, also with an adorable design!
The CC cream really drew me in when I first saw it, and I just knew I had to get it. Me and my impulsive habits... TAT
So all hopes that the CC cream it self is not bad, so I can justify my actions. ;D
Keep reading for more photos and the full review!~
I just love the hand-drawn look! The lettering and art is shiny in real-life, making them standout even more. :D It's too bad mine got a bit crushed in the mail, but all's well. :)
The SPF30/PA++ is pretty good, but standard nowadays in BB and CC creams.
The sides. Love that it has an English side. And like most CC creams, the lighter coverage makes it ideal to be worn alone or under foundation!
The design is the same. With 30ml it is of the smaller sized CC creams, but it's thin - easy to carry around!
Hygienic pump. :3
Blended on my wrist. It comes out as a very light, almost white peachy colour. I tried to have the lighting as similar as possible in all four pictures, so you can see after I've blended it and waited 5 minutes, it does oxidize to a darker colour, adjusting more to my skin tone.
Oil test! It's not very clear in the second picture, but you can see there's a small dark fuzzy oil ring around the CC cream. Very little oil compared to some other BB creams I've tested. :)
And on my face. :D
The texture of this CC cream is super light, and it does not feel oily at all. I really love the watery feeling it gives, it's almost like a water based moisturizer! Even though it's not oily, it's doesn't feel drying either, rather it feels as if it gives a silky protective coating over my skin. :D It also gives a cooling sensations when first applied. I absolutely love the texture of this, and best of all - it doesn't feel sticky at all! *A*
Application is also fantastic, because it's so light, it's very easy to blend. Doesn't sink into lines, and makes my skin silky smooth! I do sometimes wear this under my BB creams when I want extra coverage, and I have to say it really makes BB creams glide on easier, almost comparable to the Etude House Sweet Recipe Choux Base!
As you can see from the swatches on my wrist, when first pumped out, the CC cream is a very light peachy colour, and blends out almost white looking! However, after awhile, the colour becomes more similar to my skin tone. :D And since it doesn't have any coloured beads like in some CC creams that release colour, I'm really glad it oxidized well to suit my skin.
On the before and after photos, you can see it definitely brightened my complexion, and gave me a lively looking glow, just like it claimed on the box! :D I tried to keep the exposure similar for both photos (saving for better camera! @_@), and I can see a difference in real life as well. :P
Coverage wise, it's definitely very sheer, even compared to other CC creams, like the Tony Moly CC cream sample I've tried. But from the photos, redness around my nose is minimized, and some freckles on my nose are lighter as well. But of course this is no where around full or even medium coverage. But it does do it's job of minimizing imperfections like it claimed, and you can use a foundation or BB cream over it if you'd like more coverage. ^^ I usually wear this alone to work or running errands. :P
To be honest, I really couldn't tell how long this stayed on my face for since it's so sheer. Even when I tried whipping it off right after I've applied it, it left little to no traces on the tissue. However, when I had this under BB cream, I does feel like my BB cream stayed put longer than usual.
The scent is peachy and flowery, very pleasant, I love peachy scents. *A* Doesn't smell artificial. It is a tad bit stronger than some BB creams, but personally I love it. No complains here at all! :D
This may be my first CC cream, but I love it already! :D It's so light that I don't even feel like I have anything on my face, and blends in very easily too. But like many CC creams the only down side is, it might be too sheer, but it minimize some imperfections and brightens the skin. I find it great alone or under foundation, if more coverage is needed.
