REVIEW: Happy Skin ZZ Cream Foundation

Okay, I know I seem to be posting a lot about Happy Skin lately. Trust me, these are not paid posts. I just really love the Proudly Pinoy brand! And this product I'm reviewing today is my current favorite!

Wow, ang laki naman ng photo pag embed from Instagram! Kakahiya. You can see all my imperfections!!! But that's really my skin. Riddled with acne scars and freckles! Actually, mas nakakahiya the grammar error. Grrr. To my credit, naka-autocorrect pa kasi my phone that time and apparently it does not recognize "its"!

Anyway, so I'm loving the ZZ Cream. As you can see from that huge IG pic, I started using ZZ Cream three months ago. Its full name is Happy Skin ZZ Zit Zapper Second Skin Cream Foundation for Acne-Prone and Sensitive Skin. It may be a very long name but it says exactly what it does—it perfects skin while making skin look perfect! I love it!

What I like:
  1. I didn’t break out. I’m sensitive to a lot of skincare and makeup products and this foundation passed with flying colors. In fact, even when I committed that great skin sin (sleeping with makeup on), my face didn’t freak out. Hooray!
  2. It has yogurt and grapefruit extract to lighten pimple marks.
  3. I love the fresh feeling it leaves on my skin. Not quite minty but there’s a slight freshness, which is great for waking me up!
  4. My skin looks even and glowing.
  5. The foundation is buildable, for those days when I need extra coverage.
  6. My skin improved over time! I haven’t had a pimple since I started using this every morning!
  7. It’s affordable at P1,299 for the 30ml tube.
What I don’t like:
Well, it comes in just one shade and while the shade works for my skin tone, I think those with really fair and really dark complexions might find the one-shade-fits-all a bit odd. 

Other than that, Happy Skin ZZ Cream is perfect! Here I am wearing all Happy Skin products: ZZ Cream, eyeliner, lipstick, and eyebrow pencil. It’s dual purpose, which makes it a makeup must-have for a busy mama like me! A foundation that will not just cover up acne marks but also clear up skin? Count me in!

Happy Skin is available at Rustan’s Makati; Rustan’s Shangri-la Plaza; Beauty Bar; Plains & Prints;

  1. I'm impressed with the formula, but not the availability (or lack thereof) of other shades. :(

  2. I really appreciate your professional approach. I would like to thank you for the efforts you made in writing this post. I am hoping the same best work from you in the future as well.

    1. Not anymore. Trying out Bobbi Brown Skin Serum Foundation now since it's anti-aging and has high SPF.
