Erborian Glow Crème and CC Crème | Review and Swatches

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

Erborian is a Korean beauty company that I recently discovered, and I must say that I am thoroughly enamored! So far I have tried their Erborian Glow Crème and CC Crème, and now I plan to further investigate their range of products because these two have truly impressed me.
According to Katalin Berenyi, President and co-founder of Erborian,

Erborian, 'Herbs of the Orient', was born from the meeting of two women with a passion for beauty. Hojung Lee, a Korean scientist, dreams of sharing the world of Korean beauty and beauty products with women across the globe. Katalin Berenyi, a true beauty globetrotter, tirelessly travels the planet, seeking out the beauty secrets and rituals of the countries she visits. 'When I created Erborian with Hojung, it seemed the obvious thing to do. Women all over the world have one thing in common: a beauty that is unique, genuine and natural.' 
Erborian Glow Crème Illuminating Face Cream ($42.00 for 1.5 oz. from SephoraSelfridges and Erborian): This is an ultra-luxe multi-purpose, multi-benefit luminizing moisturizer and primer that gives skin a gorgeous, radiant glow, it evens skin tone and texture, and eradicates dullness. Furthermore, the illuminating particles have a blurring effect on enlarged pores and skin imperfections, while simultaneously serving as a refined highlighter. As a primer, it extends the longevity of foundations, and as a moisturizer it provides the skin with dewy hydration. It has a lightweight wet and creamy consistency that effortlessly glides across the skin leaving skin with a gorgeous ethereal glow. I should mention that Erborian Glow Crème Illuminating Face Cream has a very light fragrance that might be described as a very pleasant floral veil, but it fades nearly immediately.

According to Erborian,

An all-over illuminator, highlighter, and makeup base in one, Glow Crème gives the skin’s complexion a fresh, dewy look, playing with the light, like crystals of ice catching the sun’s rays, as if creating a beautiful dazzling glow. Filled with brightening ingredients, licorice, poria cocos (a precious fungus that’s traditionally used as to help brighten the appearance of the skin), and niacinamide a popular brightening ingredient in Seoul. Erborian’s Glow Crème is also formulated with moisturizing glycols to help hydrate and soften the skin. Glow Crème will give you all the benefits of your favorite makeup primer while also keeping your Glow-up on point!

Suitable for all types of skin. Free of Parabens, Sulfates and Phthalates.

Directions: Apply a fine layer to the face, just like your daily moisturizer. Also makes an excellent make-up base.

Erborian CC Crème High Definition Radiance Face Cream Skin Perfector in Clair ($44.00 for 1.5 oz. from Sephora and Erborian): This high definition CC Cream is available in two color-matching shades. I have Clair which comes out of the tube white, and then transforms to match my cool-toned light-medium skin tone. It offers beautiful medium coverage that evens skin tone while providing SPF 25 UVA/UVB protection from the sun.

According to Erborian,

The coveted CC Crème from Erborian is a multi-purpose formula: this 'High Definition' illuminator, with its fine texture for light to medium skin tones, contains encapsulated pigments to enhance your skin's beauty. Upon application it adapts to your skin tone, naturally revealing a more even, more beautiful complexion. CC Crème also contains SPF 25 which will help deter sunburn to your face and also keep your skin looking flawless all day long.

Suitable for all types of skin. Free of Parabens, Sulfates and Phthalates.

Directions: Apply a thin layer to skin and rub in using fingertips or a makeup sponge until it is completely blended.
Ingredients: Ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate / Octinoxate, Ethylhexyl salicylate/octisalate, Titanium dioxide, Zinc oxide: Sunscreens.Water, Cyclomethicone, Dipropylene Glycol, Glycerin, Peg-10 Dimethicone, Methyl Trimethicone, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Dimethicone, Ci 77492/Iron Oxides, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Magnesium Sulfate, Vinyl Dimethicone/Methicone Silsesquioxane Crosspolymer, Centella Asiatica Extract, Mel/Honey Extract, Mica, Talc, Trihydroxystearin, Butylene Glycol, Polyester-1, Aluminum Hydroxide, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Palmitic Acid, Stearic Acid, Tocopheryl Acetate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Phenoxyethanol, Methicone, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Fragrance, Hexyl Cinnamal, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Linalool, Citronellol, Geraniol, Eugenol, Limonene, Ci 77491/Iron Oxides, Ci 77499/Iron Oxides.
Top to Bottom: CC Crème in Clair and Erborian Glow Crème. Note that the CC Crème is white, but then it transforms.
 Note the way in which the CC Crème has color-matched my skin.
Note the luminosity that the Erborian Glow Crème imparts to the skin.
Overall Assessment: Incidentally I really like using the Erborian Glow Crème and CC Crème together, but each is truly a stand-alone product and doesn't need to be used in conjunction with the other.

    1. They are really wonderful. The CC Cream really doesn't have much in the way of a scent, but there is a light scent to the Glow Creme, but it does fade fast.
