*✦ Etude House Correct & Care CC Cream #01 Silky Review & Swatches ✦*

Today I'm going to talk about a product I've been waiting to try out since it's launch, kindly sponsored by the people over at Cosmetic-Love. (http://cosmetic-love.com/) They are always having promotions on their products and their prices are very reasonable!

BB cream, CC cream... DD cream?! The trend of BB Creams has now been exceptionally popular worldwide after it's success in the Asian markets for the past few years. "CC Cream" stands for "color correcting", "color control", and in this case, "correct & care". It was developed to retain all the skincare properties of BB Cream while providing skin correcting makeup.

Etude House has two options in their CC Cream line, 01 Silky and 02 Glow. I opted for the Silky one as I tend to get oily in my T-zone after a long day. The texture is exactly that, silky, smooth, without shimmer or shiny particles. CC Creams tend to have less coverage as opposed to BB Creams, but provide color correcting properties for an even finish. This is great for those who don't need too much coverage and are looking for something light.

UV Protection
Wrinkle care
Makeup base

Fresh out of the tube, it comes out white with tiny balls of color adjusting particles that burst upon applying. Therefore it is recommended you apply this with your fingers so that you can make sure it's applied smoothly.


I do have to say oil control is not a trait of this product as it tends to get a bit oily after a couple hours of wear. However, with some powder and oil sheets, it's quickly resolved so it's not that big of an issue. 

Verdict? 4.5/5
 Personally, I have an uneven skin tone and experience the most redness across my cheeks, nose and chin. However, since it feels a lot lighter than foundation and even BB Cream, I think for summer I can get away with just using CC Cream with a little bit of concealer and powder. For someone who has extremely dry skin on the cheek area, it is not enough as a moisturizer. However after applying moisturizer, it applies very smoothly.It definitely brightens up any dull areas on your face and helps minimize pores in photos so I would say this is a great makeup base for those who wear foundation or BB Cream or alone for those fortunate enough to have great skin!

Brightens dull areas
Provides an even finish
Reduces redness on any uneven skin tones
Feels light on the skin and comfortable for summer
Hygienic packaging containing a pump

One shade fits all
Light coverage
Oil control not sufficient

The remaining photos are with concealer and powder, but no foundation!

  1. I want to try this CC Cream, I see in the photos, leaves skin beautiful! *u*


  2. Woo!! Nice review!
    I wanted to try a CC cream but not from the Etude House brand... I think their products are too oily and heavy for my skin...
    Btw! You look really good in the photos with the cc cream! Do you recommend me one? ^-^
    Have a nice day~


  3. Pretty Elaine ^^ I have the #2 cc cream and its too oily for me and I thought maybe #1 would be better but I think they have around the same oil control. Great review and you have flawless skin even without cc cream <3

  4. I have this CC cream! c: I really like it~ c:
    Thanks for the review~

  5. wow girl you're so pretty here :) !

    This is really a nice review and the pictures are really beautiful. I didn't try this CC cream yet. I want to try it at some point, but I'm waiting for another CC cream (the face shop) to try first. Thanks for the review!

  8. I need to get myself some of this!
    You have a pretty blog! I shall follow it!


  9. omggg look at you! pretty lady *0* looking gorgeous as always <3
    I actually tried this in the GLOW version. I find it pretty pointless because it doesn't cover my imperfections at all and barely evens out my skin tone. I think it's because I have too much redness and acne scarring. It's good to use as a shimmery base or even to highlight some points with a more natural glow. Can't say I use it too often though. Great review!! Love the before and after comparison!

  10. Thank you for this review, I really want to try this product, I can actually see a difference^^ All these photos of you are so pretty ~ the contacts you are wearing are gorgeous, where are they from? x

  11. I use this cc cream as makeup base before applying bb cream and it works pretty good :)

  12. Yeah! I think if you have uneven areas it works as a nice base or a very sheer cover!

  13. Ahh, my skin is actually really dry in the cheek area, so I tend to look for more moisturizing products! I haven't tried other CC Creams as of yet, but I've been seeing a lot about the Tony Moly one too!

  14. I was really hesitant because #2 looks so healthy and youthful! But in the end I know I will just look like a shiny ball of oil so I chose the first! Dawww, I wish I had nice skin and look young like you Misa!!! *Slather on skincare*

  15. Oh! Let me know how you like the face shop one! I'm interested to know too! Thanks for stopping by!

  16. Aww, thanks you're too sweet! ♡♡

  17. Nuuuu, dem angles yo!! All 'bout dem anglessssss!

    Yeah, I still would need to layer on some foundation or bb cream if I'm heading out to meet people, but I have really big pores so I'm all about products that will cover that up! I happen to be allergic to certain makeup primers so I'm happy this one isn't making my skin cray cray!

  18. Thank you! It's a sheer product, but the base is actually one of the most important products to my makeup routine! These contacts are Princess Mimi Sesame Gray by Geo!

  19. I agree! It's fantastic as a base! I wish it had more oil-control but other than that it is great!

  20. Great review, I have to try it out!

    You look so beautiful and perfect!Thank you so much for following! I'm following you back now on ”GFC”

    Thank you for the detail reviews. Im currently using the cc cream from Tony Moly. This one from Etude House seems pretty cool, I like how they have the silky and glow option. :)

  30. I love it! Ever since I got it, I ditched my BB Cream and liquid foundation. LOL, it's really good and has surprisingly good coverage. So yeah, you should give it a try when you have a chance! :)

  31. Ouuuu, my skin is super bumpy and blotchy though, I think I need concealer no matter what! You should write a review on it! I will probably pick the Tony Moly one up next thoughhh :D

    The always very nice empaquecomo apparently well adapted to the color but still see it even just a little pale. Honestly it does not lead me to try this CC Cream is I've read in other reviews and you'll put it here as a CONS do not have good control of oily face. But many thanks for your review! your looks absolutel pretty!

  34. Looks like a great CC Cream! Great review! I'm a new follower. Hope you will check out my blog.

    xx, Gina


  35. My face is only oily in the t-zone but I need products that aren't too drying cause my cheeks are extremely dry! I wonder if it actually adapts to darker skin, I should test it on my sister!

  36. Thanks for all that information! I've always been confused with what the difference is between BB and CC cream!

    Hope you would check out my blog

  37. Very informative! I was wondering what the difference between a CC cream and BB cream was. It's great to hear that CC cream has more skincare functions than a BB cream. Now I want to try CC cream. *__*

  38. I have the Tony Moly CC Cream and it's wonderful!
    I guess I'm gonna have to give this a try next:)

    P.S Your blog is so beautiful and neat! Thanks for following Elaine!
    Followed you back:)

  39. wow, they make your skin looking fresh!


  40. Wauw, looks like a good product, I like the 8 in 1 thing! I've never used BB/CC creams before so i think i'm going to buy it once and try it out :)!

  41. Wow such a great post! I love the photo where you showed one side with the product and one without.

    Would appreciate if you checked out my blog


  42. Great Post !!! Very Informative !!The product looks very good

  45. If you find any other good ones let me know! Love how light CC cream is, especially in summer!

  46. Thank you cutie! ♡ *A* I've been wanting to try the Tony Moly cream too!

  47. I would definitely give BB creams a try because they feel so much lighter than foundations!

  48. Thank you for visiting! I hope you get to try out CC creams one day too!

  49. Thank you Ami! You're so sweet, following you back! ♡

  50. hi elaine :) have you tried their BB cream? which one do you think is better? thanks for the review :)

  51. I've tried a couple of Etude House's BB creams, but it really comes down to your needs and preferences. If you need more coverage and something lighter than a foundation with SPF, I would say go with a BB cream. If coverage is not an issue for you and you just need something light and natural to even out your skin color, I would say try a CC cream.

  52. Ahhhh it looks so good on you! What a
    difference and I think it looks flawless on
    your skin c: Hence the light coverage.

  53. I tried the Glow one and it makes my face really oily. I think I will stick to my BBs since I like the coverage BBs give but as a primer this one is pretty good (though I'd take the silky one next time)
    Just discover your blog and I like it a lot ^.^ You have a new subbie here hihi

  54. If i wear CC Cream every day,Will my skin will better?

  55. errmaagherrd! I never received a notification that you replied me yo!

    I'm exactly the same as you. I need really good pore coverage too. I've been using Nature Republic's Snail BB cream since I my Seoul trip and it does wonders! The only problem is that my nose gets super oily after a few hours and everything slips and slides T^T

    Have you seen those new Etude House BB Cream cushion products? I'm more interested in the special application puff than the product itself LOL *0*

  56. Great Review! It looks so flawless on your skin! I actually thought of getting the aqua petit jelly cc foundation but heard much negative reviews on combined skins-oil skins. I am so buying this!!
