Review: SK-II Auractivator CC Cream

By 08:00 , , ,

The all new SK-II Auractivator CC (Complete Correction) Cream promises glowing skin. SK-II Auractivator CC Cream enables hollistic brightening through a three-fold action - providing immediate radiance on the surface of the skin, working on the inner layers of the skin to reduce melanin, the cause of dark spots and protecting the skin from further damage with UV protection. This new innovation came on the back of a recent breakthrough discovery - Genoptics inspired by the science of skin and light. SK-II has discovered that the skin naturally grows darker as it ages, making it harder for natural radiance to come through. 

The Auractivator CC Cream is housed in a tube with a pump dispenser which keeps things much cleaner compared to a normal tube. It is a light beige shade and only comes in one shade, although it doesn't really show when applied. It has a light texture that applies easily but stays on tacky. It contains super micro shimmer which is only noticeable when you look very closely, I'm assuming this is part of what gives the CC Cream a glowing radiant look.

Here's the thing about the Auractivator CC Cream, I find that it goes on with a white cast for me despite applying a thin layer, I was hoping it'll blend out and disappear but didn't. I suppose the presence of titanium dioxide doesn't really help. In terms of coverage it doesn't offer any, it's meant to be sheer. So if you have any blemishes or hyper pigmentation, it will show. I left it on for about two hours lounging around the house to see how it would turn out, unfortunately it left my complexion looking grey and dull. As for the healthy glowing effect, I ended up looking shiny and blotchy. I did try to use it as a base, this was on a different day, it ended up having a white cast as well.

I'm not sure how the SK-II CC Cream could work for medium tan skin, but I should think it would suit someone with fair skin tone well. Minimal blemishes would also help as it doesn't offer any coverage. It's more to get that 'wake up tired dull skin' kind of thing. If you are concerned with dark spots, you might want to find out about specific SK-II products instead.

SK-II Auractivator CC Cream retails at RM274 (30g) and is available at all SK-II counters.
