A while back I purchased the Tonymoly Luminous Pure Aura CC Cream SPF30 / PA++ to see what the CC Cream Hype was all about. For 1.75 oz of product, it’s a really good deal. If you are unsure of what a CC Cream is supposed to do, CC Creams are supposed to have high SPF, alleviate uneven skintones, and have a lighter and better texture so your real skin shines through.

This comes packaged in an airless pump, which keeps the ingredients light free and away from the air, so it doesn’t degrade. I think the Tonymoly Luminous Pure Aura CC Cream is beautiful. It lets my real skin shine through without making me look like a wet rat. It does have a dewy finish, which has taken some time for me to get used to. I find it nicely moisturizing. I still wear my PCA Skin Weightless Moisturizer with SPF 45 underneath it, which is what I do with all of my products. Because I live in Florida and the sun is brutal here, I feel like I can’t ever be too careful with sun protection.
I can’t speak to it having whitening properties, because my skin is already light and I’m not trying to lighten it even more. I do think it does a great job of keeping my skin hydrated without it becoming a total oil slick. If I set it with NARS Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder, it looks really nice. It does work well beneath a powder or liquid foundation but I like the looks of it on its own.
I thought the one shade self-adjusting would be gimmicky, but it really works! You blend it in and it changes to match your skintone. It does have a sweet sort of flowery scent that eventually fades. I’m usually put off by scented foundations but this one smells pleasing to me. It really does a nic ejob of evening out my skintone and blurring imperfections without feeling heavy or cakey.
Overall, I’m thorougly impressed with the Tonymoly Luminous Pure Aura CC Cream SPF30 / PA++. It’s a fantastic cc cream, especially for the price! You don’t normally find 1.75 fl. oz for $12.75.
