Tony Moly Luminous Baby Aura CC Balm

Who wouldn't want to have baby soft, baby smooth skin?

I'd have to admit that the first time I got the Tony Moly Luminous Baby Aura CC Balm, I was kind of iffy. Oily skin + cream makeup base = not such a good combination, or so I thought. I thought this would be heavy for my skin type, so I looked up reviews online first before using it...only to find that it yields a matte finish. Woah! I had a change of heart in a snap. :D


It contains natural avocado peptide which protects the skin from anti-oxidation.

Tony Moly Luminous Baby Aura CC Balm is a 5-in-1 product that serves as a primer, moisture cream, BB cream, aura effect, and volume filler.

It comes in only 2 shades: 01 Light Beige and 02 Natural Beige. The one I have (02) is already the darker shade between the two, so shade matching could be a problem for deeper skin tones.

The Tony Moly Baby Aura CC Cream comes in a cute compact packaging. It has an air puff as applicator. If you're thinking of cushions - nah! This one comes in a pure solid cream compact.

Notice the swirls? The white part gives moisture, while the beige part gives coverage.

For me, it's best to just use this once a day - in the morning when you're skin is clean. Retouching with this is not recommended since the CC balm has a moist texture, and the air puff easily gets dirty.

How to use: Dispense an adequate amount onto the puff and apply on the entire face in a gentle tapping motion.


Without CC | With CC

The side with product (right) looks more luminous instantly.

When worn:

This CC balm is creamy and blends like a dream. It gives my skin medium coverage - which is amazing for a CC since they're just meant to correct color and not really for coverage. Pores and redness are all gone and my skin looks baby smooth every time I use this. I've also been told that I wasn't wearing any makeup the day I wore this, so the finish is very natural - just like my skin, only better! Whenever the weather is cooler, I skip powder since this one gives me a demi-matte finish (matte but still with glow), but during sunny days I dust on a light layer of powder to keep my face from getting shiny and to keep the product from sliding off. The best part - no breakouts here!

This one has no SPF, and I wish it had some. However, I do spot Titanium Dioxide high up on the ingredients list, so it could serve as a minimal sun protection, better than bare skin alone. The good side of a product with no/low SPF - no white cast in photos.

Price: P948.00
Available in all Tony Moly stores nationwide

  1. Nice review! You have nice skin to begin with (I think). How much is it?

  2. It's hard for me to look for bases in korean makeup because they are too light for me. I have medium to dark skin tone. :-(

    1. That's usually the case for morena skin. Tony Moly has a BB cream na fit for morena skin! Try mo Tony Moly Delight Petite Cotton BB Cream SPF 36 PA++ in Dark Beige (P398.00).

  3. Hi Ms Helen, ano po mas prefer nyo , BB, CC or this CC balm? wanna try din :) tia

    1. Hmm super hard question! Probably BB creams (that come in tubes) due to the coverage and hygienic reasons. I like this CC for its coverage too, but in the long run the puff and the surface of the cake isn't too hygienic. :)

  4. That looks like a promising product from Tony Moly. I haven't jumped on the CC cream bandwagon and I'll keep this in mind in case I decide to. Thanks for this review!

    Btw, ganda talaga ng skin mo, Helen :)
