Skincare Review | Elishacoy Always Nuddy CC Cushion
Hello, lovelies~ Cushion foundation is trending again lately in the beauty realm and more brands are coming up with their own version. In this post, I want to show you one from ElishaCoy called Always Nuddy CC Cushion with a built in SPF 50/PA +++ that was sent by WISHTREND for me to try out (thanks!).
- 5 in 1 Effect. New generation CC Cushion has multiple functions: Sunscreen, cooling, hydration, whitening and make-up.
- Hydrated and radiant skin. Enriched with birch tree extract, the foundation hydrates the skin and its Jewel Complex ingredient makes the skin instantly radiant.
- Natural covering on the skin. Featherlight foundation is evenly spread on the skin and covers any imperfection.
Before I test out the claims, let me show you the packaging of the CC Cushion from ElishaCoy. The white compact is suitable for travelling due to the size of the compact itself and the practicality of having a puff inside.
There is no need to worry about the product drying out because there is a tight plastic divider to keep air or bacteria out of the cushion. It also helps to separate the puff so that it doesn’t transfer more germs to the cushion.
To use the CC Cushion, I just tap the puff onto the cushion and pat it evenly all over my face to ensure a seamless blending. If needed, a second layer can also be done, but I feel that one layer is enough to minimize the appearance of my blemishes and uneven skin tone. In the photo below, I only applied a light layer on top of my sunscreen to even out some of my redness. The CC Cushion has a dewy finish that feels moisturizing to my now combination skin. It also helps to brighten my complexion, thus no more dull and uneven skin tone. There is a cooling sensation when I pat the CC Cushion on my face, I feel that it tones down the redness.
One layer of the CC Cushion provides a light to medium coverage that is buildable, but it does look slightly cakey if it’s more than one layer. It is able to even out my skin tone and reduce the appearance of blemishes on my cheeks without any heavy feeling on my face. However, it isn’t capable of concealing my sun spot, but that’s not a problem.
As for the puff, it is soft, reusable and durable during the washing process. I use cleansing oil to get the stubborn stains off and continue with regular soap to get any greasiness off. After that just dry it in the shade (no direct sunlight) and it’s done.
Overall, this handy compact offers a high sun protection without the heavy feeling of a regular sunscreen. Despite its lightweight feel on my face, it still manages to even out my skin tone and some minor blemishes here and there.
