#CrunchTest: Malaysians Try Out Korean Beauty Filter Cream

Updated: Apr 4, 2019

Curated by Emily Goh. |


The Korean beauty craze in Malaysia is still going stronger than ever. With our Asian skin types and humid tropical weather, most of us lean towards Korean beauty products because it tends to suit our skin better as compared to Western beauty brands.

But with Korean beauty products, there seems to be such a wide variation of products out there, and often times, we don’t even know what these products do.

As we continue to explore to K-Beauty trends and products, one of the intriguing products we have seen in the market recently, is SON&PARK’s Beauty Filter Cream Glow.


WHAT IN THE WORLD IS THAT?! If you are a beauty newbie like myself, this product may be quite new to you (well, at least it is not your usual cleanser, toner, moisturiser, foundation etc).


So, the beauty filter cream is a pretty cool combination of both skincare and makeup. Its function is as its namesake, in which it helps to create a “filter” effect on your skin by minimising skin pores and fine lines and even out your skin tone with a glowy finish.


If we have to say which category does this product belong to, it would probably be a child of a primer and a light tinted moisturiser. You can use it on its own if you are going for the no-makeup makeup look, or else this can your primer to smoothen out your skin to prep your skin for your foundation.


The best way to know how a product works, is by asking a bunch of girls with different skin tones to give this famous Korean product a try. Here is what they say about it:

1. What is your first impression on this product (texture, colour, packaging, etc)?

I like how the whipped texture of the cream felt on my skin — soft and soothing.

My usual uneven complexion definitely appeared more even, my pores were virtually undetectable, and it left behind a gorgeous glow.


3. What is your favourite thing about the product?

The product left my skin with a subtle dewy finish.


4. What improvements do you think the product needs?

Can't think of any! Cause I feel it suits me very well.

1. What is your first impression on this product (the texture, colour, packaging etc)?

The texture of the product is good to gives the face a more glowy finish. The colour of the cream is very natural. The packaging is also very classic and minimal.


2. After applying it on your face, what is the main difference?

It gives my face a slight glow which makes my face looks more fresh and awake.


3. What is your favourite thing about the product?

The cream gives my face a slight glow and brighten up my skin after using it.


4. What improvements do you think the product needs?

Can’t really see much of a big difference after applying it. Maybe the texture can be a little less sticky.


5. Will you recommend this product to your friend? and why?

Yes I would recommend this product. Because the cream is light and also give the skin some glow. It also helps to brighten my skin tone, while providing moisture to my face after applying it. My face feels more moist and not dry and cracky. It also makes the face look a little fresher which results to better selfie photos.

1. What is your first impression on this product (the texture, colour, packaging etc)?

I love how the packaging is aesthetically designed. The product is comfortable and easy to apply with hands. The texture of the cream is not too creamy or oily, hence making it pleasant on the skin!


2. After applying it on your face, what is the main difference?

Woah there’s a huge difference changes on my face after applying it. My face looks brighter and less dull!


3. What is your favourite thing about the product?

IT WORKS PRETTY WELL AS A PRIMER! I don’t usually put primer on my face before my make up because some of the primer I used before, tend to be oily after a while. But this, this really worked very well on my skin and it made it easier to apply my foundation after applying it.


4. What improvements do you think the product needs?

At the moment I don’t think there’s any improvements the product needs.

5. Will you recommend this product to your friend? and why?

YES DEFINITELY! Because is serves well as a moisturizer and also primer! It’s like killing two birds with one stone! 😊

1. What is your first impression on this product (the texture, colour, packaging etc)?

I’ve heard a lot of SON&PARK as a brand but never got to try the products. I love how small and minimalistic the product is — with its frosted glass! Texture and smell is amazing. Nothing too heavy for my skin and also it dries down semi-matte.


2. After applying it on your face, what is the main difference?

After applying it, the main difference is that it isn’t sticky like a normal moisturiser and also it dries down semi-matte/matte if you have drier skin. Also, my skin appears brighter after applying.


3. What is your favourite thing about the product?

My favourite thing about this product would be the finishing. Having oily/combination skin is really annoying at the end of the day when your makeup melts. Having a matte base that acts as a primer really helps.


4. What improvements do you think the product needs?

I would say the size of product — but a little goes a long way with this product.


5. Will you recommend this product to your friend? and why?

I would, really. If you’re branching out to try different moisturisers and you’re looking to have something that would brighten your skin and also mattify it at the same time!

What Lisa Thinks:

@mawar_biru89


1. What is your first impression on this product?

Love the beautiful packaging of the product! It’s easy to use and does not take up much space in my bag or desk and texture of the cream has a soft texture.


2. After applying it on your face, what is the main difference?

When applying it for the first time, my skin looked more glow-y and feels soothing on my skin. I find that the product does not only moisturizes but primes my skin.


3. What is your favourite thing about the product?

I enjoy the fact that it makes my skin more hydrated and it brightens up skin almost instantly.


4. What improvements do you think the product needs?

Perhaps, the material of the packaging could be of a less fragile material.

Aside from that, I don’t find anything else that needs improvement.


5. Will you recommend this product to your friend? and why?

Yes! I would recommend this product to my friends and even my sister! Because its a 2-in-1 product - a skincare and a primer which is convenient for daily use and great when you’re in a rush!
