Review: SK-II AurActivator CC Cream

When renowned Japanese skincare brand SK-II launches a CC cream, you sit up and take notice. Known for their radiance boosting and whitening skincare, they are a bit late to the CC cream party. But trust me, the wait was worth it.

SK-II launched the AurActivator CC Cream – their first ever colour correcting cream – earlier this year, with celebrity ambassadors Godfrey Gao and Lee Sinje. One glance at their flawless complexions is testimony to the efficacy of the brand’s skincare range – but I digress. The real star at the event was what SK-II labelled the Complete Correction cream.

And rightly so. The AurActivator CC Cream is so much more than just a colour correcting cream. It uses the breakthrough philosophy of GenOptics – a combination of Genomics, that studies your genes, and Optical Science in Skin, that studies light behaviour in or on the skin and how it affects the appearance – to ensure brighter, more radiant skin on the surface as well as from within.

The weightless cream goes on easily to instantly brighten your complexion. Its micro pearl pigments diffuse light to give you that elusive aura glow, while softly blurring imperfections so your skin looks flawless all day long. And while you enjoy radiant skin at the surface, the Soft Aura White Cocktail, a mixture of potent ingredients, works on the skin cells beneath the epidermis to control melanin, reduce dark spots and boost your inner glow. To ensure your efforts to achieve that aura glow don’t go waste, they have a built in SPF of 50 to further protect your skin from the sun.

For someone fanatic about sun protection, this is a major plus for me – it means I don’t have to layer on another product. On days when I don’t feel like using any makeup, I simply blend in a pump of the CC cream all over my face and neck after my usual skincare regimen and walk out the door with flawless, glowing skin; on special occasions, I layer my favourite foundation over it for a truly luminous finish.

Used by itself, as a way to perk up your skin before makeup or to supplement your skin whitening efforts, the SK-II AurActivator CC Cream is a great addition to your skincare routine.


Now available at SK-II counters island-wide, the brand re-launched the SK-II AurActivator CC Cream with Korean actress and SK-II Ambassador Kim Hee Ae at their #ChangeDestiny Museum in Singapore last week.
