I've never been more on the fence about... Any product.I'm fair combination skinned with major sensitivity. Bought this under the idea that it was labeled as good for sensitive skin, cruelty free and was on super clearance.Pros:Covers redness to my satisfaction. Redness gone and color matched very well, which pretty much never happens for me with foundation. Only a very light smell detectable. Texture is smooth and dries to a very smooth, satin looking finish. A little dewiness which is always a plus to me.Things that made me say "Eh??": I don't know if this is a common experience with this stuff, but when they say "brightening", they are NOT KIDDING. I tried to take some pictures to show here, both indoor and outdoor, and I literally glowed (not like shimmer, I'm talking radioactive type GLOW) so hard in both picture that I couldn't bring myself to post any. Now I'm quite pale but this has never happened to me before. I really don't know how I feel about it. Then comes the texture. It seems a little goes a long way, but the workability is odd. I had to work around with it A LOT to get even close to a natural looking finish. It stays wet for all that time so this is an Eh. Again, not sure how to feel.Cons: Took pretty much forever to work this into my skin in a way that looked okay. It's funny that it doesn't have any sunscreen in it, because it applies like a thiiick one. Covered redness as I mentioned but highlighted every little bump and wrinkle I didn't even know I had. Once worked over again (all with fingers, by the way) it looked a little better in that category, but seeing those crazy little bumps everywhere was a bit jarring for me. If I was in low lighting maybe this wouldnt be so bad.Overall, I would use this again because of how well my skin seems to like it, which is a major rarity in a foundation, but I am going to have to experiment with it more to figure out a way to get something resembling a natural finish with it.*Update*Wore it for the day and a few new notes. I had a painful under the skin pimple on my chin that has been absolutely plaguing me. I applied this stuff like normal over it, and a few hours later I absent mindedly touched over the pimple spot and.... NO MORE PAIN and it went down significantly. I also had a little contact dermatitis around my mouth and that seems to have gone down, despite that by all my calculations it had about a week left to heal. I don't know what the deal is here but these things have to be related to the CC cream because it's the only thing I've done any differently. I think I'll keep this stuff around.

The coverage is nice but it's too matte, it settles into dry spots and lines. Good for an oily girl but not normal/combination

Skin: Acne-prone, Fair, Not Sure
This is a CC cream that I used after my horrible first try with a BB Cream (MAC). This CC cream failed to impress. After trying both, I went back to using foundations. The reason I wanted to enjoy a BB/CC cream was to help streamline my morning routine, have a look that is put together, not too heavy and doesn't require a lot of product. I have sensitive/acne-prone skin so I tend to shy away from products that do not like they are non-comedogenic. This product- doesn't blend. Period. Not with/without moisturizer/primer/fingers/brush/beauty blender. Nothing could even it out. Sank into my pores. Exaggerated fine lines. Poor coverage. I looked better without any make up on, than with this.Well, after I got my skin under control I gave it another go (since my skins texture has improved) same issues as before. I tossed it. I do not recommend.However, I have found my HG CC cream, which is the SuperGoop! Highly recommend!

As a person with sensitive combo/crazy skin, it's been difficult to find products that can help me maintain that fine balance. I also have yellow undertones with medium skin that has a tendency to oxidize the colors that I wear, specially mineral makeup. Because of my skin tone I get a lot of makeup people trying to sell me products that are too dark. This stuff has been an amazing find. I don't see that my pores stand out, and I actually see that it has skin care benefits, beyond being a CC (I couple of slight breakouts have subsided). It gives you a beautiful matt finish, and an overall healthy brightness. Does not oxidize on me. I do recommend that you apply in two steps. First put on your moisturizer and then use a brush to apply. No powder is necessary. I would use a setting spray instead. It's been years since I use powder. Also this is a cruelty free company and no parabens or other sensitizing ingredients. Also, this does provide a heavier coverage than most CC, in my opinion.

I was a little apprehensive when trying this product as every single bb/ cc cream I've tried has left me saying ewww, this is terrible. BUT NOT THIS!!! I love this cc cream. I have sensitive, combo, acne prone skin and this just works for me. I feel like I've finally found a product I like for those days when you just want something with a little lighter coverage. I don't like to look completely made up everyday and having a 14 month old sometimes makes that impossible even if I wanted that. This counter acts my redness and it just disappears. I read a lot of reviews saying this product makes your proves extremely accentuated and very matte but I feel the complete opposite. It felt soothing on my skin and just blurred out all my imperfections. I still have to use concealer if I have a blemish but hey its a cc cream. If you want that perfect, completely flawless skin look, then go for a foundation. But for me, I just need something easy that makes me feel pretty and put together quickly. It feels so soothing going on. I love it. Also I looooooooove that Lorac is cruelty free. Major plus as I'm trying to switch all my products to cruelty free. I've tried brands from Nars, urban decay, cover fx, boscia to rimmel, loreal, nyx, and physicians formula and then some. I feel like I've finally found something that works for ME. Yay

Skin: Oily, Olive, Not Sure
I have mixed feelings about this. First off I love it because it is one of the only foundations/CC Creams that doesn't break my acne prone skin out. Also it's packed full of good for your skin ingredients. And it doesn't have SPF in it which may be a turn off to some but for me SPF's tend to break me out. Now the cons: I do not like the way it actually looks on my face. It dried to a matte finish which emphasizes every little line on my face and makes my pores look huge. However, it does do an AMAZING job of covering redness. I would say this is a light to medium coverage product. On good skin days I wear it alone buffed in with my RT Buffing Brush....but since my skin is usually a hot mess I wear this as a primer which it works excellent as since silicone based primers break me out. I have repurchased this and most likely will continue to repurchase not because it's HG worthy but simply because it doesn't break me out or aggravate my skin and for me it's rare to find a product that doesn't break me out so that alone is enough to make me repurchase even though I'm not crazy about the way it actually looks when I wear it

I am not one to post a review ... But this is the first make up product I have ever returned. It showed every pore (many I never knew existed!). I was very disappointed, being many lorac products I have brought have been decent. Awful

Skin: Combination, Fair, Neutral

PROS: Helps neutralize my very ruddy patches in my neutral (barely leaning warm) skin and, hence, makes my color look sso much pretier once my TM or foundation is applied.. Satin finish (NO shimmer). Leaves me with a very small amount of moisture in my skin throughout the day, which I like. (More oily skin, see "application tips.") . Can use this under my eyes without making my eyes look hideous, like most foundations do. Kind to my very sensitive, very reactive, early rosacea skin. Paraben-free, cone-free, paraben-free. CONS: If you're looking for a foundation and/or want any decent coverage, you won't want a CC cream by itself, at least not this one (see application tips for applying this under foundation, which is what people do when they want more coverage than a CC cream alone.) If you just need to neutralize and not cover any imperfections, you may like this applied by itself. Some won't like that it doesn't have an SPF. I personally like to use my own spf under this, because almost all chemical SPFs, EXCEPT for the one in my BalmShelter TM, burn my skin a bit and the physical ones look terrible in my wrinkles/pores, so I'm very picky about which ones I put on my skin.) Looked good at first but, within an hour, REALLY settled in my large pores and accented my wrinkles. Also highlighted dry patches.For oily people, I don't know this would work, at least not without powder setting it (see application tips).COLORS: Affordable enough that I can mix two colors (a bit of "CC1" and mostly "CC2") in the winter when I'm most pale and I'm NC15-20. (I run quite neutral with just a hint of warmth.) In the summer, I use just "CC3" when I'm about NC25+. APPLICATION TIPS: When checking the color out, it was great for me to actually apply it to my face to test the color because it is a CC cream that is for neutralizing color issues, so it kind of melds into the skin color. In other words, I couldn't hold up a swatch of this to my skin and know that it would work on my face. I did one side with and one side without, left it on for 3 hours, and was still very pleased. OF COURSE, a very popular use of CC cream is to use it UNDER FOUNDATION as a sort of primer and color corrector. I let my moisturizer/spf soak in a while before applying this; I do NOT apply this right after my spf. I would think it would just lay on top of the spf and look pretty bad.Because of my large pores, I like to pat this INTO pores, making sure they are filled completely, and then smooth on with fingers. But I use a very light touch with the beauty blender, or the beauty blender will soak up all the product. I then wait just a couple of minutes, while I do another part of my makeup, and then come back and pat in the product that's setling in my pores. You can use Covergirl Advanced Radiance Age-Defying powder (which is so kind to my wrinkles) after this product sets a bit to make it last longer. REMOVAL TIPS: If you are prone to clogging, you may want to remove this with a cleansing oil before using your regular cleanser.PURCHASING TIPS: You can buy it online at Nordstrom.com, loraccosmetics.com, Sephora, ULTA, Amazon, and even HSN has some LORAC products. My local ULTA, Sephora and Kohl's carries LORAC, so I get to try out products using the testers. But I know Nordstrom is great about online returns with free shipping both ways.ALTERNATES: TheBalm has a lovely TM called BalmShelter that does much better in my pores and wrinkles. I've recently found something that is the best thing for my wrinkles and pores I've EVER tried, Cover Girl AquaSmooth SPF 15 foundation

This product does everything it claims to do! For people who want a more sheer coverage -- A LOT GOES A LONG WAY!! I did not have to use a lot (Just a pea size amount for my entire face!!) My experience with this product is that if you use more, you will have a difficult time buffing it into your skin. My skin is very sensitive to silicone, oils, parabens etc. so I definitely love all of the Lorac products that do not contain any of these-particularly this product. I have mild rosacea redness on my cheeks and chin and this product hides the redness without looking cakey. I like to first apply, "I'm so sensitive" primer to my face, then mix a little bit of medium cc cream with my Lorac light foundation on my hand and stipple and buff all over my face because I feel that it applys easier that way. I did this because the medium color alone was a little too dark for my face - but the light tone was too light.I think this is a nice product to have on hand because it does give a nice airbrushed look to my skin and definitely evens out any uneven skin tones on my face. I like to have two shades on hand so that in the summer when I get a tan on my face, I can mix shades to perfectly match my tone. I would buy this again!!

I bought this because my local Ulta has been out of the POREfection mattifying primer and I was on my last few squeezes of the Mac prep + prime, at home. I know that bb creams are different than primers, but to be honest, I've never used one before and figured, eh, let's go for it. After buying it, I read the reviews on here and immediately regretted my purchase. But I decided to try it before returning it, and omg, you guys. Are we using the same stuff? I would never use it alone, and maybe that's the difference, but beneath the lorac natural performance foundation, it's perfect! It gives me that extra coverage my foundation lacks, and makes my very pale base look creamy instead of almost sickly, as it sometimes does. It also totally negated my red cheeks and faint freckles and under eye bags, without the need for concealer. Whether or not it will extend the wear of my makeup remains to be seen, but I love that it isn't too "brightening" or too "matte," it's just very natural. Like I said, I don't know how it would be alone, but with my foundation, the two work beautifully together.update: it actually doesn't help extend the wear of my makeup at all and even with my primer, and powder, I notice this giving me a little shine around my nose at the end of the day. I have used this alone and it sucks to blend, and is a bit too warm for my complexion, so I prefer to go barefaced, if it's not a full makeup day, instead of wasting my time with this. But I still love it under my foundation. So as far as using this as concealer and for extra coverage under light-coverage foundations, and neutralizing too-cool foundations, this is still a dream. (Also, I don't know if you ever get that "cracked" look at the end of the day, but this REALLY helps with that whole makeup-looks-like-it's-chipping-off thing. Particularly in the nose and mouth area. No creases, even at the end of the day)
