Product Review: Australis Colour Correcting Cream

Once upon a time I wore nothing but medium to full covering foundations, having always had issues with my skin breaking out and wanting to cover scars from past acne, I simply felt it was needed. But then while I was pregnant my skin miraculously cleared up, and I could finally enjoy using tinted day creams, BB and CC creams. Here are my thoughts on the *Australis Cosmetics Colour Correcting Cream;

What They Say:
Australis Colour Correcting Cream is a multi-tasking face make-up that has been formulated to even out skin tone, while providing flawless coverage. The CC Cream helps to lock in moisture, brighten the skin and neutralise imperfections and redness. It also harnesses nourishing properties such as vitamins A, C and antioxidants including green and white tea extracts, that will mattify the complexion and control unwanted shine.
Available in three shades: Nude, Natural, and Dark Natural.

RRP: $12.95 – Available from Priceline, Big W, Kmart, selected pharmacies and Australis Cosmetics Online

What I Say:
The Australis Colour Correcting Cream has quite a thick consistency, yet it absorbs into the skin very quickly. Unlike many other CC creams that I’ve tried it gives a slightly better coverage, evening out the skin tone, and minimising the look of pigmentation and any redness. In saying that, it doesn’t cover darker pigmentation as well as scars and blemishes and not to mention bags under the eyes (and sadly I know all about them with a 4 month old baby), still need a quick dab with a concealer.

The cream feels comfortable on the skin, and doesn’t settle into fine lines and wrinkles, and as promised it leaves the skin with a velvety matte look, which in spite of my combination skin stays like that all day without any shine, without the need for any touch ups.

I tried the Natural shade, which is the medium shade is a perfect match for my medium beige skin tone, but with only in three shades in the range, Nude, Natural, and Dark Natural, I could imagine others may struggle finding their perfect match.
The Natural Shade..

And blended...
The CC Cream comes in an easy to use small white tube and it has a slight chemical scent.

I love the fact that this is CC cream is not just a foundation, it has the added benefits of nourishing the skin as well, although I do wish that it had also contained some SPF.

What I Like:
  • It has a better coverage than most BB or CC creams that I've tried
  • It has nourishing benefits
  • It stays matte all day – even on my combination skin

What I Don’t Like:
  • It doesn’t not contain any SPF
  • Limited range of shades available
  • It has a slight chemical scent

Overall it is a lovely CC cream providing a nice level of coverage and as we are now heading towards warmer months, I do like that it stays looking matte all day. At just $12.95 this is bargain find, if you have combination or oily skin, you just can’t go wrong!

What do you think of this new CC Cream from Australis? Do you use any products from Australis? Do you CC Creams?



  1. This looks great. Just asking, do you know if the other shades are yellow tone?
    I have a ton of acne scars , does this mean I need to wait until I am pregnant? Haha.

    1. Sorry, I'm not sure if the other shade shave a yellow tone. And having always struggled with my skin, I feared it would flare up when I got pregnant, but I was lucky that it cleared up, and was clearer than I think its ever been!

  2. Replies
    1. It is a great cream, also considering it is so cheap. Definitely worth a try!

  3. Such a shame that we don't get this in our country. Maybe I'll check the product online. The coverage sounds just right, which can really be a "problem" with other BB creams :)!


    1. Yeah, I am also often finding that BB creams do not have sufficient coverage, but this one is great, also considering the budget price!

  4. I'm so madly in love with this but sadly it's been discontinued I have combo oily skin and this doesn't budge and stays matte the whole time and hasn't broken me out. It's very thick and tacky but works well with a sponge.

    I have one backup of it, but is there any other cc creams that are just like this Australis one? Would really love to try and see if I can find a replacement when i run out.
