|REVIEW: San San Cosmetics WW Cream (Whitening and Wrinkle Control)|
Reviewed: November 2016
Back in September 2015, I promised myself to stop buying makeup and skin care products first so the ones I have would be used up. So I did THAT, while missing out on new products that HBC released during my 'restrain period'.
Come October 2016, it's time to look for new skin care and makeup products that will give me a glowing no makeup look. I've been eyeing San San's CC Cream for a while, but when I visited HBC in Centris, I only saw the BB Cream (Natural, Beige) and this WW Cream. So I gave this WW Cream a try (retails at PhP 220.00)
WW stands for Whitening and Wrinkle Control. So this is the perfect product for someone like me who is only a few years until 40: arbutin, collagen, Vitamins A/C/E, and SPF 30. I'm in love with the scent -- flowery, grassy, mossy, green, you get the picture. It's not a strong scent so I'm sure everyone will like it.
The cream has a translucent finish. If you prefer more coverage, try their BB Cream instead. This WW Cream does not add any color on my skin, nor does it look whitish/greyish. Flash photography also works well.
For added UV protection, I use the HBC Body Recipe Milk+ Sunblock Cream SPF 20 first. It's a non-greasy cream. Then follows this San San WW Cream as my primer. My finisher is the San San Two Way Cake #3 Golden. That's my simple daily makeup routine nowadays. This system is very effective and my skin has always been dry until the end of the day, even if I sweat alot (I'm also oily skin!).
I'm pleased because this routine gives me exactly what I want: natural, no-makeup look, glowing skin. If there's anything I didn't like so much, it's not the product itself, but how it sometimes takes effort to dispense the cream from the tube.
I love HBC products throughout the years because there's no bullshit or hype like what people want you to think about imported products with 'state of the art technology'. Tsk... HBC can give that promise to all Filipinos at the fraction of the price.
