I bought this product with one intent.. to simplify my makeup routine. I find I am one of those people that either has a full face of makeup or none at all, so I was looking for a product to motivate me for something in the middle--- some coverage, lightweight, easy to apply and no maintenance--- that's not too much to ask for right?!
Although this CC cream checked some of my boxes, a few remain empty (fortunately none that are deal breakers...). If you haven't already, check out the video below to see my first impressions and initial review of this product.

Follow Up Notes:
So as I said in the video, although I felt discouraged at first because this product was not exactly what the doctor ordered, I wanted to give it another few tries with different techniques:
With Powder: Life changer.. Took the sticky feeling away and added a velvety finish that I rather enjoyed!
Primer: Placing a primer underneath definitely added extra coverage. The product applied smoothly and lasted longer, however around 5 hours in the coverage started to fade and I felt like it had absorbed into my skin.
Underneath Foundation: T.B.D (Valentines day???)
How it Lasted (on it's own) and Final First Impressions: For the first few hours I felt like I could still see the coverage but by hour 4 I felt as though there was nothing remaining on my face. CC creams come in many different forms so this is one I would recommend to someone with relatively good skin looking for a little glow, some spf and a slight tint. I would not recommend this to someone who needs to cover redness or spots or is looking for a heavy duty color correcting cream. That being said, with my miserable winter skin (a.k.a dry, flaky and red--- grrrrrrr) I found I could not use this product alone, I definitely need concealer and some other help to get the coverage I want! However during the summer, this product would be the perfect weight to wear to the beach or running around all day! So I think I will stick to wearing this as a "base" for now and when the summer heat comes around I know it will turn into the easy low maintenance product I was looking for!
