Pros: nothing i can think of.
Cons: it smells, it barely evens out my skin, its SUPER greasy, my makeup just slips right off with it.
I threw it out after a week.
Dont waste your money.
if you have medium-light or lighter skin stay away from it!!
it claims to match every skin tone, with "smart pigment capsules" which i was soooo exited about!..but it doesn't..when it comes out of the tube it's green and when you aply it on the skin it turns a medium beige..
even so, it doesn't counteract any redness,as the green factor dissapears..
it feels very watery, doesn't glide on evenly and makes pores look horrible.
it can NO-way be used as a foundation as it covers nothing..
i was expecting more
If you have fair or light skin, stay away from this product! I bought this hoping that it would conceal the redness in my skin, and when I squeesed some product out of the tube, it looked like it would be a perfect match for my skin. You have no idea how wrong I was, because when I applied it to my skin, it turned a freakingly orange colour (smart pigment capsules?). I positively looked like I had a very, very bad fake tan, and I had to take it off instantly. And even worse, imperfections looked ten times worse. I'm a NW15, and unless you want to look like an oompa-loompa, stay away!
There was no warning what so ever about it not being fit for fair and light skin, and I have to say that I'm very disappointed.
Not a good product at all. I purchased the medium skin tone and I was very disappointed. It has a strange texture once you apply it. I have lots of acne scarring so I was hoping it would cover it, but all it did was make my skin look extremely orange and it covered up absolutely nothing. I'd say it's a waste of money.
I use this as a spot primer under my normal BB cream/foundation. So far I really like it. It's far to expensive to buy full price, but you can always get it on sale somewhere.
You would think that as an anti-redness cream the colour would be suited to fair skin as that is the skin colour most prone to redness, but no! I look like an oompa loompa when I put this on- so orange and fake! I really wanted to like this too. I now use Clinique Anti-Redness Solutions Foundation which is a much better product IMO.
I definitely agree with some of the reviews about this product: if you are fair, stay well away, as even a small amount of this product will leave you looking orange. If your skin is a tad darker, I would say give it a try, as it blended beautifully and gave a good, even coverage.
Okay... so this review is probably a bit rushed - I applied the CC cream only 1 hour ago! :-) But I'm SO impressed, I just had to let you guys know..
I bought the green, anti-redness, CC cream and prayed it would cover at least some of the left-over acne scars I have on my face. I do not have any active breakouts, so I only need to cover my discoloration. I applied the first layer and was surprised by the great coverage. I then applied a second layer - and now it's like a medium coverage foundation, but it looks sooo natural... like SOOO natural! :-) It looks like my skin, but much better. It was green when it came out of the tube, but when you start massaging it into the skin, it kind of adapts to your skin color. I haven't set it with a powder and I'm not going to... I wanna see how it is on its own. I will update you on the staying power, but so far... I'm really excited, and I love the way it makes my skin look...
I'm giving it 4 out of 5 cause I'm not yet able to review its staying power...
This review is for the anti redness CC Cream of L'Oreal. It is the very first time that I am writing a review - and I am only doing it because I am simply amazed by this product. It is truly great. I buy tons of make-up, still on the search for the perfect liquid make-up to conceal the redness of my skin, to conceal the dark spots, the occasional red spots. So I also bought the CC cream of L'Oreal at my local drugstore. Not really expecting anything but the "CC" in the name sounded interesting. CC is the next level of BB. The Colour Correction. What can I say? The stuff is GREEN!!!! But when I put it on, it blended nicely and did not look green at all anymore. What did it do to my skin? I have no idea, since I am not a scientist. But it blended beautiful, it somehow covered all my spots, blended the redness of my skin, and did not look like make up at all! I still used a bit of concealer under my eyes, but I did not need anything else. And I really got so many compliments ever since I wear that stuff, people saying that I look really good. AMAZING! The CC cream stays on quite well. During the day I use some powder, but I do have quite oily skin. In the evening if I go out I do apply some more of the CC cream. Looking great again all evening. I am really puzzled that the CC cream got such bad reviews so far. Please do try it. It is not expensive. I usually buy more the expensive stuff. Got a Lancome make up a few weeks later because I thought the expensive must somehow be better. Wrong, wrong, wrong. In this case the drug store stuff really beats the brand name. I can really recommend it.
Bad bad bad! If you are any kind of light-coloured lady, this will definitely make you orange. I bought it because of its " anti-redness" function, and it turned out such a disaster. the cream did come out green coloured, but as I rubbing it on, it makes my redness orange. Texture is ok, couldn't tell how the "skincare" part works out, as I desperately needed to take it off my face. I think i'll go back to my Smashbox color correcting tube.
