Pure Beauty CC Cream [Review & Contest Giveaway]

I had always thought that CC creams are just a gimmick of BB Creams.

Well, that was before I received Pure Beauty's Complexion Corrector, CC Cream from Watsons Malaysia to host an Instagram contest (yes! I am finally legit enough to be hosting a contest, so stay with me till the end to find out how you can win some cool products).

I am a BB cream lover and had never bothered to look at CC creams because I was told that CC creams are just super lightweight coverage product that claims to help correct uneven skin tones. The closest experience that I had with a few CC creams was the testers and besides being lightweight, most of them failed to conceal my imperfection such as blemishes or to "correct" my uneven skin tone (probably due to the super lightweight coverage), and upon application, some of the CC creams was actually oily and/or sticky. Because of that, I wasn't convinced as to why I should opt for a CC cream instead of a BB cream that covers my imperfection and provides me the necessary SPF protection that I need.

About Pure Beauty CC Cream

When I received this product from Watsons Malaysia, I was told that this product is designed to help correct ones uneven or troubled complexion, reduces appearance of wrinkles, improves skin texture elasticity and also to provide moisture to the skin. The claims of Pure Beauty's CC Cream pretty much does the exact opposite of what most BB creams' that is available out in stores does, that is to cover up significant acne, scars and also to conceal any age spots and light defects.

Pure Beauty's CC cream is free from paraben, alcohol and lanolin which is usually known to be harmful towards the skin. It is also ECO certified for only using active natural ingredients such as the Pomegranate. With the Korean's beauty innovation and its 3-color combination technology of:

Yellow: Conceals dark circles and blemishes
Peach: Corrects uneven tones and smooths complexion
Blue: Covers pimples and unsightly redness

Not only does it conceals the imperfection, what the 3-color combination technology actually does is that it neutralizes the redness or bluish skin on your face by correcting it. This would result in a more natural, healthy looking complexion.


After trying it out for a few weeks, I have officially been persuaded to switch over to using a CC Cream. This product not only convinced me that it does a great job at covering imperfect skin tones through correcting, it has also helped me to improve my skin texture by providing moisture to my super dry skin (my face was previously bad till it's actually flaking around the cheek area). I love the fact that it doesn't make my face feels "heavy" as it's coverage is really lightweight. Though it is non-sticky, the texture is a little oily but bearable. Best part of all, it has a really nice fruity smell which I assume is the Pomegranate(not too sure what Pomegranate smells like) and it gives my face a nice glow which makes my skin complexion looking super healthy and fresh.

This product is said to be suitable for all skin types. It is highly recommended for those who is looking for a light coverage skincare product to be used on a daily basis to achieve that natural, radiant look.

If you wanna have a look at what I am talking about, do watch the short video right here that I created just for you. Do see it for yourself  on the differences with and without the CC Cream along with some tips on how you should apply it.
