Tony Moly Pure Aura CC Cream

There have been a tonne of reviews over the jump from BB to CC cream, so I thought I might as well join the bandwagon as usual. It's no surprise that I really like Korean cosmetics, and the best priced and looking beauty product I thought I would try next comes from the Tony Moly range, who I am certainly no stranger to. 

Pure Aura is a luminous CC cream which is a colour correction cream. The idea with this cream is that you can apply it and it will match your skin's tone and eliminate blemishes and dark patches. The CC cream comes in a nice pump action bottle, in 50ml too which is good for travelling. 

When I first applied this CC cream I was slightly concerned as is goes on white but after a minute or two changes colour to a light nude (you can see from the photo above). Now I can't really rave about this product, it was alright/ok/did it's job, but I didn't find gave me as much coverage as some of the BB creams out there. But this is only because I don't wear my BB/CC creams as a primer unlike most. I generally use mine as foundation as the coverage with some is quite thick and matte so I like to leave it there. 

This CC Cream would be best off used as a primer with either a liquid or powder foundation over. It does what it says on the tin though, covers blemishes and leaves you with flawless skin, just I found it didn't leave me with a whole lotta coverage. 

This product retails for around £10-£12. 


  1. I agree with you I wear my BB cream alone, which is why I don't think I'd really like the CC creams either ^_^

  2. I thought CC creams were supposed to be worn kinda like a primer? Just for colour correction underneath something. Although to be honest, it's probably another gimmick really, I'm happy sticking to BB or light foundation :) xx
