        I love the idea of a CC cream; everything in one product. I have tried many but for me this was the best. It is moisturizing so if you have oily skin it is probably not the best choice for you. It gives good coverage without looking cakey. I have fair yellow undertones and it matches perfect. I have seen the poor reviews and I guess just of us has different skin types and it is about finding what works for you but I sure enjoy spending under $10 on sale instead of $40 plus.

          I wanted to use it as a daily moisturizer with a hint of color. It was thick and did not go on smoothy. I am planning to return this to the store.

          When you apply the product you immediately look shiny and greasy. I add powder overtop and it disappears, An hour later your back to looking extremely shiny and greasy and fake. This is even with a shine free primer. Never will I use this and I do not recommend it!

              For some reason, this product made my pores look huge. I thought it would be similar to the color adjusting formula but it was heavier and darker, even though the same shade number. I prefer the older version.

                I have combination skin and have been looking for a light coverage that blurs the imperfections and evens out my skin tone. I have tried CC creams that cost upwards of $35 and would pick this one over those any day. Applied with a foundation brush in a downward motion and then blended with a sponge has helped me eliminate a primer and daily moisturizer. I am in love with this product and have purchased for my 60 year old mother as well.

                This is a great CC cream. Right now I have the light/medium, which is slightly too dark, but I can't find the light version. I really like this. It covers my skin really well, especially my dark spots, and looks very natural. It does tend too look slightly flakey on my dry skin, but that's not unexpected. Great for every day wear!

                  I do not wear makeup (last time I wore makeup was 4/24/10 at my wedding!) as I break out WAY to easily & I'm lazy so I thought lets try this 1-step BB/CC stuff that is sweeping the market.
                  It covers my freckled Casper white skin pretty decent, easy to apply with my fingers, doesn't need reapplying, easy to wash off, doesn't leave anything behind on the pillow as I am not a at night face washer...again with the lazy thing and never wearing makeup.
                  The ONLY thing I would complain about is how 'sticky' it feels when I am in the sun/heat (I live in FL) it feels heavy but once in the AC or out of the sun I do not feel anything on my skin.
                  In the end this product is very sheer, lightweight(ish) and great when not in 100% humidity!

                    I decided to try a CC cream because I wanted something lightweight, but this isn't the sheer coverage I was looking for. It feels very heavy and greasy. 20 min after applying it melts right off! Even after setting with powder!
