Since, last year I’ve started dabbing more into makeup. I started with loose powder and move on to bb cream. Now, I’m a huge fan of CC Cushion too! I’m pretty sure most of you are aware that our skin is exposed to UV Rays and pollution on daily basis. What does that do to our skin? It causes our skin to age much faster with more pigmentation as well as dull complexion! Hence, I’m looking for a CC cushion that can offer me lightening and protective properties. Ta-da, I present to you Sisley Phyto-Blanc Cushion Foundation SPF 30 / PA+++
Sisley Research has been working on the mechanisms of melanogenesis for more than 15 years. The Phyto-Blanc range lightens the complexion, restores radiance to the skin, and reduces dark spots. This ‘Phyto-Blanc’ expertise is now apply to make-up, creating an all-new foundation with lightening and protective properties. Sisley Phyto-Blanc Cushion Foundation SPF 30 / PA+++ is the first Cushion foundation produced by Sisley. The CC cushion is a combination of makeup and skincare product to suit Asian skin or any woman seeking to make her complexion lighter, more luminous and more even.
Well, I get the dips to try it first, read on, if you would like to know my two cents of this product 😀
Sisley Phyto-Blanc Cushion Foundation SPF 30 / PA+++ (14G)- RM460
There are 3 shades available in Phyto-Blanc Cushion Foundation such as White Opal (natural radiance for very fair, yellowish complexion), White Pearl (pink radiance for very fair complexion) and Light Rose (pink radiance for fair complexion).
I will be using White Pearl shade for my review. Before applying onto the face, I tested it on my hands. You’ll probably notice how light and natural the shade seems to be on my hands. There’s also a subtle sweet scent in this cushion. Are you eager to see how it turns out on my skin? Then, continue scrolling….
How to use?
Press the pump to release the desired amount of foundation. Gently pat and even out the foundation all over the face. Tip: For medium coverage, apply a second layer.
Check out the below photo, it’s me ‘before’ applying cc cushion. (Note: I’ve applied base and light concealer beforehand). In this picture, my skin seems dull and lack of radiance with imperfections marking on my face.
Now, let’s see the ‘after’ picture
WOW! Are you amazed at how my skin look so natural and luminous? This is all thanks to the perfecting glow from the golden and pink Color Correct Pearls in Phyto-Blanc Cushion Foundation. It helps to add clarity, light and radiance while providing double correction for an even complexion. The double correction is actually optical correction and color correction. Combining this two, it greatly helps to neutralise my skin color irregularities and restore a refreshing radiance to the skin.
The light, airy and velvety texture of Phyto-Blanc Cushion Foundation easily bonds with the skin. It makes my skin feel fresh and soft. On first application, I immediately noticed the ‘photoshop’ effect, where my skin pores are minimize and looks much smoother than before. The cc cushions offers a light and natural coverage with sheer finishing.
Here’s me after a couple of hours later
Got to say, the makeup stays put with minimal smudges. Skin still feels moisturise and comfortable as the product contains phytosqualane (fights skin dryness), Pro-Vitamin B5 (maintain skin’s moisture) and Wheat sugar Derivative (reinforce skin barrier).
I’ve heard that long term usage of Phyto-Blanc Cushion Foundation may also help to prevent the appearance of pigmentation flaws as well as photo-ageing. The formula in the cc cushion has micronized titanium dioxide (protection against UVA/UVB rays), buckwheat seed extract (protects against environmental pollutants) and Vitamin E (strengthens skin defences). To boost skin radiance and light, ingredients such as Stabilised Vitamin C, Hexyl Resorcinol, Rhubard extract and Hibiscus flower extract are also added in. Quite excited to see whether this is true 😀
Overall, I like Sisley Phyto-Blanc Cushion Foundation for its velvety, airy texture that offers a natural and sheer finishing. I also like the pump concept that was incorporated in this cushion as I get to control how much I need to apply. With normal CC Cushion sometime I exert too much pressure thus there’s wastage. As I’ve got oily t-zone, there’s a need to reapply or touch up every 2 -3 hours otherwise my face seems to shine.
