Today I’ll be reviewing the ETUDE HOUSE Correct & Care CC Cream #02 Glow! Also available in #01 Silky.
“This multitasking 8-in-1 formula hydrates, primes, conceals, treats and protects skin at an easy single step for a healthier complexion, inside and outside. It glides on with a glowing finish.” – Etude House
The CC cream comes in a slim pearly colored tube (35g) with a convenient pump dispenser for hygiene and a plastic lid to avoid spilling any unnecessary product.
It has a thick white consistency with micro-beads that look like tiny dots. One pump is enough! Two pumps may leave your skin pasty-white.
It has a mild but pleasant floral scent.

The CC cream looks a bit white when applied to the skin but after a few minutes it adjusts to my skin tone perfectly. It reduces redness, makes the skin look brighter and gives a very natural and glowy look! It feels a bit sticky at first and takes quite a while to fully absorb into the skin. If you have very dry or flaky skin you may still want to apply a moisturizer before applying the CC cream. Medium oil control and better suited for pale skin. May clog pores and cause small pimples.
How to use
Use this product if you to want a natural look or if you’re looking for a primer with many skincare benefits. Don’t use this product if you want more coverage, don’t like the glowy look or if you have dark or very oily skin.
Personally, I’m not a fan of a the glowy look, but since my skin tends to get a bit dry and flaky around my T-zone I thought the Glow version would be a better fit for my skin. I like to apply the CC cream over my entire face and layer it with a small amount of BB cream around my eyes and T-zone for better coverage.
