I love cushions! At first I never thought that I would be using cushions too often and now I’m neglecting all my other BB/CC creams/foundations in tubes for my easy-to-use cushion foundations/bb creams. Swanicoco Vita Triple Cover Swan CC Pact is not the first cushion I tried, but yet, after having it used to its end I can definitely say that it has been one of my favourites!
First of all, Swanicoco is a Korean brand that stared off its business by creating naturally fermented soaps. Now, they have a huge range of products including skincare and make up products, but still all the products share the same believe in natural ingredients excluding artificial and chemical components. Swanicoco uses grains, fruits, herbs and oriental medicine materials as raw materials for their fermentation. By fermenting the products they can be much more easily absorbed into the skin, help retaining moisture and improve damaged skin. They state that instead of using purified water like in most existing cosmetics, Swanicoco has replaced the water with ferment filtrate. Additionally, pigments, synthetic perfumes, chemical preservatives, alcohol, mineral oil, paraben and benzophenones have been excluded from their products. Oh, and they are also free from animal testing!
Swanicoco Vita Triple Cover Swan CC Pact is a multifunction make up product combined with ingredients which are beneficial for the skin. It also contains fermented ingredients and various fruit and plant-based ingredients. Also, the cushion has SPF30/ PA ++ and gives some sun protection, too. Usually, despite the sun protection stated on cushions or foundations I would still advise you to use regular sunscreen below your makeup. The layer of makeup you apply is usually very thin and that results in a weak sun protection – if at all.
The ingredients are listed on the cardboard box, but only in Korean. Here are the ingredients in English:
Saccharomyces Ferment Filtrate, Titanium Dioxide, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Butylene Glycol, Octocrylene, Water, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Dimethicone, Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone, Butylene Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate, Hydrogenated Polydecene, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Diisopropyl Dimer Dilinoleate, Arbutin, Glycerin, Bees wax, Sodium Chloride, Sorbitan Olivate, Methyl Methacrylate Crosspolymer, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, CI 77492, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Caprylyl Glycol, Dimethicone/Vinyldimethicone Crosspolymer, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Vaccinium Myrtillus Fruit Extract, 1,2-Hexanediol, CI 77491, Mica, Aluminum Hydroxide, Propylene Carbonate, Pentylene Glycol, Saccharum Officinarum (Sugarcane) Extract, CI 77499, Allantoin, Glyceriyl Caprylate, Hexandiol, Caprylhydroxamic Acid, Adenosine, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Fruit Extract, Acer Saccharum (Sugar Maple) Extract, Glyceryl Laurate, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Fruit Extract, Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Polyglutamic Acid, Origanum Vulgare Leaf Extract, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Perilla Ocymoides Seed Oil, Tropolone, Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate, Ethyl Ascorbyl Ether, Cordyceps militaris Extract
I always love the details of the cardboard boxes of Swanicoco products, with all those tiny symbols. Even the lash of the cardboard lid contains some of them.
The Swanicoco Vita Triple Cover Swan CC Pact itself comes in a black cushion compact. It looks pretty much like all cushion pacts look like, with a application puff and a mirror inside the lid. The product is available in two shades, 21 and 23, I decided to go for 23 which usually suits my skin tone best.
The difference to other cushions is the core of it: Unlike other cushions this one doesn’t have a make up soaked sponge inside, but a pressure plate with holes, that release a custom amount of the makeup by pressing it down.
Above you see how it looks like before pressing down the plate and below you see how the make up is released through the holes.
The Swanicoco Vita Triple Cover Swan CC Pact is designed for coverage. It is supposed to cover up freckles and darkness and can be used for troubled skin aswell. It has a formula with moisture balance, so it can be worn by oily skintypes, too. The formula is a creamy matte one containing moisture particles which make your skin glow. I would consider it a semi matte finish.
The swatch looks a bit more yellowish than my skin tone, but after applying it to my skin below you can see that it looks very naturally like my own skin color. Actually, I’m probably the wrong person to judge this cushion in terms of coverage, because I don’t have much of a troubled skin thanks to my thorough skincare. Yet, my skin tends to have some redness around the nose and cheeks and in summer I have some freckles.The cushion manages to cover up the redness and my freckles very nicely. Also, it helps to reduce the appearance of my pores on my nose as you can see below. The picture before was taken after my regular skincare, by the way. Usually my skin does not glow that much :D But you can also see that finish after applying the cushion keeps the glow and even adds some sparkles here and there despite its semi matte finish. Also, it doesn’t get cakey throughout the day and looks like freshly applied for several hours before it starts to fade out.
All in all, I’m very happy with the Swanicoco Vita Triple Cover Swan CC Pact Black. I probably never used up a cushion that fast either and I’m really sad that it is already finished.
Also, I think it doesn’t have any refills. At leat I couldn’t figure out how to remove the core part of the cushion pact. I saw refills for it as well, and it is available in two shades, 21 and 23. There is also another version of the cushion available in white. The retail price lies around 30 US$. I received this cushion for reviewing purpose from Swanicoco. I also reviewed the Swanicoco Flower Silk Cream and Swan Cream Butter Edition >>here<<.
