I’ve been working on achieving the Korean look for quite sometime, and there are always something missing about it, maybe the eyebrows? The eyes? The skin tone? YES, the skin tone. Definitely it.
Koreans have such awesome skin tone, that you can only envy them. Seriously only envy?? No, I don’t think so. What you need is a good product to present the flawless, softness, fairness and glow on your skin. And I think I finally found it!
As you all know, CC cream being the successor of BB (Blemish Balm) cream, aims to provide natural looking skin coverage. It acts like BB cream, retaining all the skin care benefits like covering and treating acne spots, sunblock and so on.. but what’s special about CC cream is that they have better coverage, blending, and treatment of uneven skin tones.
And you’re guessing if it’s CC cream I’m talking about, yes I finally found my ALL in 1.
ONL by sOmang Presents Oceaniq 3D Anti-Wrinkle Total Solution CC Cream SPF 30/PA++
ONL is a new brand brought in by sOmang in April 2013. ONL means Today in Korean is a range of high quality skincare and make-up products aim to improve your lifestyle and build the confidence you never had!
sOmang is a Popular Beauty and Cosmetics brand from Korea, a leading manufacturer of quality skin care and hair care products. sOmang has won numerous awards for popularity, quality and business excellence. sOmang has manufactured more than 40 million units of products from its facilities and all products are made in Korea. Currently, they have a total of 5 outlets in Singapore and more coming its way this year. And were previously known as Beauty Credit (does it sound familiar) but they will be slowly rebrand under sOmang.
ONL by sOmang’s Oceaniq is a 5-in-1 skin care solution where it acts as a primer and foundation, provides UV protection with SPF 30/PA++, wrinkles repair and whitening. Its colour-changing blending technique will match your skin tone for an everyday natural look!
A highly functional marine vital skin care using Sticky Liposome Technology. This enables the product components to reach the damaged parts of all skin layers, such as the dry, dark, and wrinkled parts and supply the components into our skin. It effectively revitalizes aging skin, helps face lifting and creates a long-lasting effect up to 12 hours with only one use.
Products are made from marine components with regenerative properties such as:
- Deep sea water—Low temperature water from over 200 m water depth, rich in natural minerals including magnesium, calcium, and sodium as well as nutrients for excellent antioxidation and regeneration of skin in addition to moisturizing.
- Four seaweeds complex from Jeju Sea—Staghorn: moisturizes, and is an antibiotic, anti-inflammatory product that protects skin from heat aging. Fusiformis enhances elasticity, whitens, inhibits the oxidation, and brightens skin tone. Sweet laver inhibits oxidation, calms, and whitens. Sea mustard helps to detox, antiwrinkle, rich in chlorophyll and vitamin A, and skin regeneration
- Fermented fish collagen—Easily absorbed in the skin for enhanced elasticity – Compared to other animal collagen, it is four times richer in serine for antiwrinkle effect – Rich in proline with excellent moisturizing power
***Oceaniq 3d Anti-Wrinkle Total solution CC cream does not contain harmful additives that are damaging to our skin—No mineral oil, no benzophenone, no animal ingredients, no BHT and no Talc!
I’ve heard that mineral oil will damage our skin, benzophenone may cause cancer, and BHT and TALC are toxic, it’s so thankful that Oceaniq doesn’t contain any of this! And I definitely dont want any animal ingredients in it. 🙁
Even before I use it, I am already very tempted to try! hehehe.
A very pretty bottle with a bit of innovation.
Even though the cream may look very white, it blends exactly like your skin tone!
Oceaniq is a very lightweight product that gives excellent coverage, it totally smoothes out my skin tone, and I got to say, it works better than a foundation!
I didn’t even need to apply loose powder or power foundation after this and I achieved a smooth, flawless and non-sticky finish. The best part is it contains UV PROTECTION which is as important, as you can see, my prolonged exposure to the sun before causes me freckles!
It has a very natural finish with whitening effect without looking or feeling cakey and heavy, and with wrinkle repair component, how can I not love it??
There are times when you apply foundations or cream and it just couldn’t blend in properly and I got to apply roughly like I’m abusing my skin, but OCEANIQ is so smooth and soft and so.. obedient!!
With one use, it can last for 12hrs, I’m not sure about this, but I apply at 11am and I went out until 9pm, and I still look as fresh as possible (still with the glow mind you), so for me at least I think I can last for 10hours!
I think I’m in love with this product, really.. this year had been good, all my new products are so awesome, I feel like I can sleep on my face.
And if you think I am only going to review only sOmang new CC cream, then you are wrong, no matter how good a BB or CC cream is, your skincare products prior to applying make up are very very important! And so please read on, to see the skincare range I used before applying this!
And they are from sOmang too!
OnL Off the face Pore Tightening range
Off the Face range aims to help those with skin problems such as blackheads, whiteheads, enlarged and clogged pores. It effectively clears the skin and visibly reduces the appearance of pores.
• Amazon white clay to purify skin, control excessive sebum and tightens pores.
•Antiroba seeds that enhances elasticity of enlarged pores and at the same time sterilizes
• Babassu oil to control oil and water balance for a moist skin without feeling greasy
Blackheads, whiteheads are so common that it’s so irritating right. When I touched my face and I feel the bumps I feel so irritated and sometimes they are so hard to squeeze! My pores are always clogged too that’s why they lead to all the heads? Urghhh.. So I tried out this range hoping that I can remove some of them without using physical force and leaving scars.
Don’t say I never warn you, the start of the post are filled with decent photos, but the rest of this post are going to be 80% bare faced photos.
OKAY LETS GO!
The first product would be the clay foam!
Off The Face Pore Tightening White Clay Foam is a gentle cleanser that effectively remove impurities and blackheads. It’s Amazon white clay nature will absorbs excess sebum and tightens pores.
Soft and smooth foam, not like what I thought it would be, I thought it will be a scrub or sorts. I have a soft spot for smooth products and I think I spend quite sometime massaging my face with this. Haha. After I washed it off, I can feel my skin became firmer and tighter.
Off The Face Pore Tightening White Clay Mask absorbs oil, dirt and toxins that clog pores on your skin. It also helps in minimizing the appearance of enlarged pores. Leaving your skin rejuvenated and revitalized.
It really became clay-liked, hahaha! damn me. I washed it off and my face feel so smooth and firm! I like the fresh feeling after Clay Mask!
I was worried that I will have breakouts after this Clay Mask, but surprisingly I did not! And I didn’t know clay mask feels so good! Hahaha. I’m such a mountain tortoise!
3rd product, one my fav too!
Off The Face Pore Tightening Oil Heating Gel is a heating gel that opens pores with warm heat, melts blackheads, and absorbs waste and sebum in pores. Can be used on the face but best used for T-zone area.
I don’t think you can see the particles on my hand, but after spreading the heat gel on my face, my face got warm and it was shocking but a good kind of shock! While I was spreading, there are particles coming out. Sooooooooooo I was thinking are they the black/white heads???
Washed them off and it’s time for the normal skincare routine!! Which is the toner & serum!
Off The Face Pore Tightening Toner gently cleanses your skin and clears away dead surface skin and refines rough, uneven patches. It penetrates deep into pores so they appear smaller and less visible. For optimal result, use Off The Face Pore Tightening Serum after this toner.
This cooling toner instantly minimizes my pores!
Then apply the 5th product, Serum after the toner…
Off The Face Pore Tightening Serum refines and mattifies your skin, making them look smoother with smaller pores. Recommended to target on the T-zone and oily area, delivering a soft, smooth finish that radiates.
Don’t you think my face looks so much clearer? I think it’s the effect of all the 5products! My favourites are the Clay Mask and heat gel, as it really leaves my skin soft, smooth, and clean.
The toner and serum acts together to minimize my pores and make them less visible, my skin is shouting out happiness!
All Off The Face products are retailing @ $39.90 each!
So that was what I did before applying Oceaniq CC cream to my face and I highly recommend Oceaniq because it’s soooo and toooo gooood! I feel so clean and glowy thanks to all the products!
And who says it’s difficult to look like a Korean? 😉
ONL by sOmang Oceaniq 3D Anti-Wrinkle Total Solution CC Cream SPF 30/PA++ 35ml is retailing @ $69.90. definitely worth it!
