We Tried These Easy Use Night Repair And BB+CC Creams That Don't Cost The Earth

Coccoon and Iraa are in the business of providing some smart solutions for your daily beauty regimen. These two Indian brands {belong to the same group called Em& Em Personal Care} launched in January this year, offers products packed with everything from extra hydration to SPF, all built into their products. I tried everything from their hydrating hair mist to all-in-one BB+ CC cream, and here’s what I think.

Did It Work For Us?

Coccoon’s products are made with ingredients such as Vitamin E, Shea Butter, Green Tea, and Kakadu Plum extracts {a superfood native to Australia which is supposedly the richest natural source of Vitamin C in the world}. We tried the Coccoon Eternal Youth Smart Night Serum + Intense Repair {INR 599}, that is apparently supposed to fight signs of ageing. The serum was light weight and didn’t feel greasy, but the fragrance was a bit intense. Whether it works or not is something that we will get to know in a few weeks, but we can definitely vouch for the hydration bit.

But we definitely liked using the Coccoon Eternal Youth All In One Smart Cream + BB + CC + Photo Defence. This lightweight balm is made with Kakadu plum extracts and SPF 30. The cream comes with a tint that works with all skin types. The cream gives nice coverage and can be used as a base for make up. For me, one pump was enough to be used on the face, and it was easily blend-able. Plus, brownie points for the pleasant, citrus fragrance. Priced at INR 799, the bottle will last you for a couple of months even with daily usage.

The Iraa Instasheen Conditioning Hair Mist{INR 269} , with apple and green tea, does smell pleasant. But unfortunately, the pump is not the most user friendly, so getting this mist out into your hair is a bit of a problem. Also the staying power of the fragrance is a bit limited, the reason why you would want to use a hair mist in the first place.

 

So, We're Thinking...

We know how expensive serums can get, and it is quite tough to find Indian brands that are experimenting with BB+CC format creams too. So in that respect Coccoon is reasonably priced and also offers decent quality. Plus, we are all for one product taking care of a bunch of skincare needs.
