My new go to!
I love this. This CC Cream is what I'm going to be using going forward. It blends quickly and seamlessly and the Medium shade gives me a nice end of summer glow. I like that it has SPF 50 as I'm trying to incorporate sunscreen in my daily face regimen. I've used drugstore brand BB and CC creams and I was less than impressed; the smell was odd, and it rolled off my face in little shreds instead of absorbing. This is worth the money.

I love this!
This CC Cream is great. It feels light but provides just the right amount of coverage to even out my skin tone. I have sensitive skin and am always on the hunt for products that deliver results without irritating my skin. This one is a hit!

Great Coverage, But Oily Formula
This has the best coverage in a CC cream that I've used. It hides my acne scars and gives my skin a nice glow. The only reason I give it four stars instead of five, is because it tends to be oily. I have normal/combo skin I always have to use a lot of powder all over to set it or it looks too shiny and smudges off easy.

This is the first of many Kate Somerville products that I am disappointed in. The darkest shade is in medium and upon looking at the color it looks really dark. I am tan and this color was 3 shades darker then the one I am currently using, but don't let that fool you. Once it is applied, it is the medium shade it is supposed to be. Instead of giving me the luminous glow, it made my skin look greasy as if I've just rubbed oil all over it. I like that it has an SPF of 50 and it doesn't do a bad job as far as coverage is concerned, I'm just not impressed with this product.

Better than mineral powder foundation
I used to use mineral powder as my foundation, then decided to try this product after my daughter raved about her experiences with this item. I love it!! This gives my skin a much nicer look, has sunscreen in it and I no longer need concealer, just use a little extra product for under eye shadows or touch up spots. I highly recommend this item, you will be very pleased. Thanks, Kate, for another great product I can add to my daily skin care routine!!!
