MKUP Super Hyaluronic Acid Real Complexion Cream is newer better?- Sweet Bunny

Is newer always better, Not exactly when it came to the MKUP Super Hyaluronic Acid Real Complexion Cream SPF 30 for me.

MKUP Super Hyaluronic Acid Real Complexion Cream SPF 30 before and after







I am a huge fan of MKUP products as the product works well with my sensitive skin. I wrote about the Real Complexion Cream about 4 years ago and still use it daily. I do not really like to use foundation because it stains clothes and I am usually in a rush to head out and prefer to speed up the makeup application or keep it to a minimum, it sometimes clogs the pores of my skin as well causing breakouts. Although the cream does not do all that the wacky ads from Taiwan say it is efficient enough and moisturises my face well.

Is the MKUP Super Hyaluronic Acid Real Complexion Cream SPF 30 a good sunblock- As I work on the sunnier side of the island of Singapore where the 9am sun is like 12pm sun needless to say it make me tanned easily? While using the cream it does help a little but not significantly, perhaps reapplication has to be done frequently as we have to factor in perspiration and if the cream dries out over several hours.



The texture of the MKUP Super Hyaluronic Acid Real Complexion Cream compared to the Real Complexion Cream – The new cream comes in a dark beige colour much different from the white colour of the real complexion cream. I do not like the texture of the cream as much because it is much thicker and sticky. In a way somewhat harder to blend into your skin. A small amount goes a long way, using too much gives off the ghostly white colour. It also felt a little cakey on my face and I did not like the hassle of trying to blend the cream to my face, I even tried using a beauty blender but I found using my fingers much quicker in the application.

However, if you take the effort to test out the cream and proportion required for your face and neck and slowly work on blending in the cream it could work well as a makeup base. It does leave a nice shine on your face making your skin look radiant and moisturised. I would say this cream works better as a primer than on its own as a foundation.

The packaging is more or less the same as the first edition of consisting of a nice holographic box and a jar with a pump. I like the pump which makes the cream ooze out without a hitch. I also like the fact that no cream is wasted as I opened a bottle which I finished using and was surprised to find it completely empty. I suggest buying the smaller 10ml tube edition if you are testing out the cream as it would be a waste if the cream were not suitable for you, I do regret purchasing the 30ml version but will try my best to finish it.

Best Sellers in Facial Masks – I tested out a bottle of one of Australian Cosmetics' Australian Zeolite Detox Mask (50 ml) - Face Detoxing Anti-Pollution Mask. I like the texture of the cream as it is not sandy or rough like some masks are, it is easy to apply as it glides on the skin with ease and feels cooling to the face. My skin was glowing after washing the mask off with warm water. I could really get used to treating myself to this mask once a week as the Australian ZEOLITE Detox Mask encourages the skin’s regeneration process, cleanses the pores and deeply moisturises for smoother, more radiant skin.

The second product I tested was the Aqua Recovery Daily Moisturising Vitamin E Cream (50 ml) this cream is a great product to apply to your skin when you get up in the morning and before bedtime, right after you wash your face, I love the design of the cream because with a simple press you dispense an adequate amount of cream for your face. The cream has a very nice floral/fruity scent to it whenever I applied it my husband asked if I put on perfume because he adores the scent.

MKUP Real Complexion Cream, Does it works as it claims ?

The MKUP brand is hyped thanks to its hilarious and persuasive marketing videos. What caught my attention was the real complexion cream, coined as The "Lazy girl's beauty hack! Instant luminous dewy glow" which claims to be the only make up you need, with the ability to cover all your flaws like dark eye circles and pimples being an all in one cream. Curious I bought a 30ml bottle to see if it was as great as it claims to be.
