Let the battle begin!
These cushions are super hyped everywhere and I thought why not try them out. I've bought the H+ Cushion myself late in summer and then later in September Jolse was 'recruiting' 20 reviewers to review the A+ Cushion. I entered because and I got picked! Today I'm going to share with you my thoughts on both these cushions and comparing them; to see which one is best for me and in general for everyone ...and if they are worth the hype.

I have bought the H+ Cushion with my own money and I've received the A+ Cushion for review purpose from Jolse as I just described above.
No matter what, I will review both these products with 100% honesty!

Delivery & Expiration date
I've received the H+ Cushion on August 14th and the A+ Cushion around the beginning of October. 
Expiration date (shelf life) of H+ Cushion is 20191121 & of A+ Cushion is 20191208.
Usually when you've opened your cushion you have 12 months to empty, before they expire. There is however no sign saying this on the packaging.

Spare makeup puff
Both cushions came with a spare puff. This is very useful because then you can switch them after each use and wash the other.

Packaging & scent review
Left is H+ Cushion & right is A+ Cushion
Packaging: From the side both cushions look super similar to the Lancôme - Miracle Cushion. The top of the cushions look very sleek and professional. A doctor could have prescribed you these cushions :).  
Scent: The direct scent is okay, it smells like "prescribed" cushion haha. You can smell the "weird-great-for-your-skin" kind of scent when you first apply it. Then it fades after 5 minutes. ...But then your face kind of starts to smell. Not constantly, but you often catch this scent of anti-aging-budget-drugstore-skincare combined with foundation. It's not a great scent. This scent lingers for like and hour. 

Shade review
H+ Cushion: This shade said to be similar to #21 light beige. It's a bit too warm for my skintone. However I think I can pull it off if I apply very light. 
A+ Cushion: This shade said to be similar to #23 Natural beige. Yes, why did I enter a giveaway for a shade that would obviously be too dark for me?! Well, who knows maybe it's great color to use as a contour and I really wanted to compare these two just out of curiosity. But this shade is warm neutral beige and yes too dark for my skintone.
Both shades are warm.

Bare Skin.
Breakouts: On each cheek I have a breakout, then on my chin I also have a few and some more on my forehead.
My skin:  I have sensitive- dry combination- acne prone- skin. 

What I want in a cushions: 
I don't want to feel it during the day. 
My skin needs to be able to breath.
Buildable coverage starting from sheer coverage.
Needs to look like skin, natural but fake.
It doesn't break my out no matter how long I wear it.
A finish in balance, sebum controlled with glow from within.

Side by side review
Application: I feel with both cushions you go from medium to heavy coverage.
It's easy to spread out with the makeup puff. Although it feels quite thick in some way.
Feeling: After you've applied one of these cushions, it needs some time to set to not be sticky anymore, up to 30 minutes. This could be the skincare "part"inside the cushions that needs to be absorbed. But I'm not sure.
After it's set it feels a bit weird on the skin. Like there is a thick layer of foundation on my skin which is only a tiny thin layer. It gives the feeling of full coverage foundation.
Finish: The finish is semi matte/semi dewy. Nicely in between.
Coverage: Here comes the difference... They say the H+ Cushion has a higher coverage than the A+ Cushion. But this is not the case. On the H+ side of my face you can see; it really did a great job at covering my acne break outs. Sure, you can see them peek through just a little bit, but that's why we have concealer. But on the A+ side of my face you can see the cushion totally failed covering my breakouts. Everything is still super visible!

Closeup cheek review
But there is more difference...
The H+ cushion on the right covered my pores so smooth and my breakout as well.
Then the A+ cushion miraculously made my pores look hideous lol like there are sucked into my skin. My pores don't look like crater at all. Never seen this before and the "tip" of my breakout was not covered well.

A+ Cushion review from my mother
After I was done taking these pictures, I asked my mom if she wanted to try out the A+ cushion. Her skintone is #23 natural beige and she never has breakouts. After she applied it on her face, we were shocked of the result. She actually looked 25 years older (my mom is in her 50's) with that cushion on. Her wrinkles were so badly exaggerated and she got new ones which she doesn't have. The same effect as my pores; like her wrinkles were sucked inwards into her skin. She said; "O want to wash my face, it feels like my skin can't breath and I get the feeling like my skin is very dirty". After her skincare routine she looked 25 years younger again + 5 extra years... good skincare :)

The winner is ...

Troipeel H+ Cushion

Short recap why Troipeel H+ Cushion won
It has better coverage than the A+ Cushion and it smooths out your pores naturally (not in a primer way). 

Would I recommend the H+ Cushion?
No, I would not repurchase because of the scent and the semi heavy feeling on my skin. Someone who is used to full coverage makeup might think differently.

Short recap why ACSEN A+ Cushion didn't win
It's sucks your pores and/or wrinkles inwards into your skin which makes them appear over exaggerated and dried out. It doesn't have great coverage at all.

Would I recommend the A+ Cushion?
No.

Last words
I'm a little sad because I had such high hopes for these cushions. They didn't really work out for me or nor my mother.. Maybe for someone or many they are great. Personally I don't understand the hype. I hope their skincare products work better for me since I have to try out the Troiareuke ACSEN Pore Control Mask yet!

I hope you've enjoyed and found my review helpful,
see you in my next post ;)
