Review: Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Cinema City

13. August 2014

When I received MeMeBox Global No. 11 the first product I recognized was the new CC cream by Too Cool For School, called Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Cinema City. I’m a huge fan of the Dinoplatz line by Too Cool For School, and previously I reviewed another product from this line, the Dinoplatz Lost Identity Lip Crayon. This line has such a creative and unique packaging and it is so adorable in my eyes! Receiving this product made me super happy, and so finally here is my impression on Too Cool For School’s Dinoplatz Cinema City.

Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Cinema City

Too Cool For School is a Korean brand, known for a unique packaging design. Their products are in the mid-pricey region and slightly more expansive than Etude House for example. The Dinoplatz line has a characteristic design showing dinosaurs in different scenaries. The colors of the packaging are white and a mint color. Too Cool For School dinoplatz Cinema City is one of their newer products. It is a CC cream and comes in the full sized version with a blush, a conceiler or a highlighter attached to the cap, which makes it a conventient multi product for travelling/your purse…The tube I will show you is a sample sized tube, only containing the CC cream. Below you can see the georgeous packaging of the cardboard box:

The Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Cinema City CC cream is usable for 12 months after opening. The further descriptions on the packaging are written in Korean, so I don’t have any detailled information on the ingredients. You can find some informations on the internet though: The product is 6-free, which means it doesn’t contain phtalate, GMO, acrylamide, tar color, benzophenole, steroid or animal derived ingredients. Some ingredients included are argan oil, apricot oil, niacinamide, adenosine and alaska mineral water. This CC cream claims to moisturize your skin, it also contains SPF 30/ PA+++ and contributes to protect your skin from sun damage.

It comes in a normal plastic tube. As said before, the full size product has a second clear cap attached to the cap, which contains the blusher/highlighter/conceiler. Even the sample size tube has a beautifully designed packaging and cute details on it. ♥

The CC cream itself has a light color. It is a fully tinted cream, not a CC cream with color changing beads. The consistency is rather runny. Also, the product needs time to be blended in when using fingers, otherwise it will stay visible on fine lines for example. Maybe a sponge or a beauty blender will do the trick, but I didn’t try it, so far I always used my fingers. The oil controll is medium. After applying, the CC cram leaves a white cast, but it adapts to the skin after a couple of minutes. The scent is floral, but not heavy.

As you can see above, if blended in quickly with my fingers, the CC cream is visible in the lines of my skin. If you take your time to dabb the CC cream into the skin it looks okay though. Nevertheless, I wouldn’t recommend you to apply a thick layer of this CC cream. It is not suited to be build up, because it tends to look cakey. Below, you see how it looks on my skin. On the image before (left side), I prepared my skin with my skincare routine products (toner, essence, moisturizer). On the right side you see how the skin looks after applying one layer of CC cream. As you can see, the coverage is low, but it evens out the skin tone and brightens up the complexion without looking to unnatural.

Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Cinema City

All in all, Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Cinema City is a very natural looking CC cream. If you don’t have a lot of skin concerns, you might like the light finish of this CC cream. If you have more visible skin concerns, you could either add a foundation or a high coverage BB cream on top of this. If you have very dry skin, I wouldn’t recommnd this CC cream to you. It might look to flakey on your skin. People with normal/combination or oily skin might like this more. The full sized product contains 30 ml and costs 25000 Won (around 25 US$) at testerkorea.

Did anybody else try tis CC cream? What is your impression? Did you try the full sized product?

    This CC cream sounds nice but the full size will be much better!
    I’ve seen this brand before and I think this package full of doddle is adorable and fun, especially those with the dinosaur :)

      I agree, I love dinosaurs so much and the doodles are so pretty *_* I’m really in love ♥

    Very interesting brand, I haven’t heard of it before. I can see that it has a very light coverage but your skin looks really amazing though, you don’t need much to cover :) Too bad it’s not good for dry skin, it’s definitely not for me. Thanks for the helpful review! :)

      I have dry skin in winter, too, so I won’t be able to wear it soon :/ But other than this I can handle the coverage :D Thanks for reading and commenting ♥
