There's a show that's going on in my face right now and it's called 'Break Out'-it's currently on its nth season and it's the worst show EVER. I wonder when it will end? I heard that it will when I die lol. :p
So yeah, I'm in breakout season once more and this time, I decided to be a little more careful with the makeups I use-especially foundation-to pinpoint which products are worsening the situation or to not add to the already bad situation, at the very least. I've turned to Happy Skin's ZZ Cream as it claims to be a foundation for acne- prone and oily skin, and true enough, it is as it's gentle and did not aggravate my face's current state!
HAPPY SKIN ZZ CREAM IN DETAIL
Happy Skin ZZ Cream is the latest foundation offering of Happy Skin. Made for sensitive, acne- prone skin, it contains Salicylic Acid that help deal with 'face plugs', Yogurt and Licorice extracts that aid in lightening of post- acne marks, and Grapefruit extract that provides antioxidant benefits. It comes in one shade only.
More about this gentle foundation after the break!
ZZ Cream comes in a lightweight, squeeze type plastic tube-the dispenser is slim and it dispenses the product gradually. I also like that the tube feels full to the brim!
Shade is medium beige with a yellow undertone. The foundation's texture is light and consistency is semi- creamy with pretty good spreadability-I can even apply its using my fingers and still come up with an even finish. It has a mild cooling sensation (which I appreciate) and is unscented. Coverage is light to medium and depending on how much you apply, this product can act both as a BB Cream and a foundation. Finish is semi-matte so I wouldn't recommend this to those with dry skin (besides, it contains Salicylic Acid too).
HAPPY SKIN ZZ CREAM IN DETAIL
With Zero Kuma Concealer
One layer of ZZ Cream
I do not find the shade of this product universal as obviously, it's a little fair on me and the SPF 20 content yields a slight white cast on my skin. It has a sheer texture too so it can't cover up face bumps effectively, but conceals redness well and slightly minimizes the appearance of dark spots, although I would recommend that you use it with a concealer for maximum coverage.
I absolutely love how this product melts onto my skin-look at it, the foundation looks just like my skin and even brightens it to boot! It feels literally weightless and flexible that I feel I have nothing on whenever I am wearing this product.
TIP: Want heavier coverage? Set this product with a powder foundation and nope, it won't look cakey and feel heavy due to the foundation's natural- looking payoff and weightless feel.
ZZ Cream set with Canmake Marshmallow Finish Powder
I've been using this foundation quite consistently for a month now and even if I didn't feel that it helped lighten my post- acne marks and heal some of my pimples, it did not worsen my breakout in any way. Oil control is pretty okay, although it fades slightly around midday so I would need to retouch with pressed powder around once or twice per day.
Price tag is a lil' hefty though considering that it doesn't offer too much coverage, but at least you're guaranteed that it delivers what it says because it's Made in Japan (you all know my sentiments on Japanese- made products), you get so much product in the tube, and you don't need to take so much in every use. This is probably one of the gentlest foundation products I have tried so I would recommend it to you if you tend to break out from certain face bases.
