Cathy Doll Philippines recently launched its AA Series, comprising of the AA Matte Powder Cushion Oil Control with SPF 50 PA+++ and AA Automatic Aura Cream with SPF 45 PA+++.
It claims to have the following beauty benefits:
- Instant brightening effect
- Protection from the sun
- Oil control
- Adjusts to your skin tone
Whew! That’s a lot! Now, let me road test these babies and share with you my thoughts.
First, let’s try the Cathy Doll AA Automatic Aura Cream SPF 45 PA+++.
PRODUCT INFO: This AA cream foundation provides incredibly lightweight texture like the air. Moreover, it contains the properties of Tea Tree Oil that helps to control oil and reduces the occurrence of acne; Korean Herb Extract that helps to fade off dark spots caused by acne, while Titanium Dioxide brightens skin tone and protects skin from dullness with the 45x sunscreen protection benefit.
HOW TO USE: Apply the AA cream all over the face before blending evenly.
PROS: Once you apply it on your face, it instantly brightens your face up to 1-2 shades lighter.
The product is thick enough to cover skin flaws. In fact, if you’re skin is pretty good, a concealer would not be necessary anymore. A few small drops applied on the skin already provides proper coverage.
It provided long-lasting matte finish so there’s no need to pat on powder throughout the day.
It has a subtle minty scent that’s refreshing.
The SPF 45 PA++++ is enough sun protection so skip the sunblock in your beauty regimen.
CONS: It currently comes in two shades only so you’d have to find the shade that’s nearest your skin tone.
VERDICT: Priced at P750, the Cathy Doll AA Automatic Aura Cream SPF 45 PA+++ is a must-have for girls and even guys who want natural-looking creams with heavy coverage.
Next, let’s try the Cathy Doll AA Matte Powder Cushion Oil Control SPF 50 PA+++.
PRODUCT INFO: This oil-control formula comes with the latest innovative airy foundation technology to provide cooling sensation. Moreover, it contains the properties of Tea Tree Oil that helps to control oil and reduces the occurrence of acne; Korean Herb Extract that helps to fade off dark spots caused by acne, while Titanium Dioxide brightens skin tone and protects skin from dullness.
HOW TO USE: Use the puff to press onto the cushion to absorb an appropriate amount of the foundation texture. Then gently blend the puff all over facial skin evenly.
PROS: It looks light and feels light on the skin. Perfect for day wear or for that no makeup-makeup look.
You can adjust coverage by repeating on a specific spot to cover flaws.
It controls oil so your face stays matte for hours.
CONS: It comes in only two shades so find the shade that comes closest to your skin tone.
Although the price is relatively not cheap at P1100, I still feel it’s worth it.
VERDICT: You can use this with the AA cream for heavier coverage, or use this alone for lighter coverage. I like this one a lot because when applied, you don’t look like you have makeup on, just brighter and more flawless skin.
