Avon CC cream in Ivory –

I was excited to receive this CC cream as I have never tried BB or CC cream before and wanted to see what the hype was about. I am however not sure the hype is wholly justified.

The formula is creamy and spreads easily.
It smells strongly like sunscreen and the smell does not fade.

This product claims to have buildable to medium coverage but I would say that it is definitely rather sheer to light coverage. I would not use it on its own, as my needs are medium to full coverage. I am however also not totally disappointed. Here are my pro’s and cons:

50 SPF
It spreads evenly & easily
It evens out skin tone and really does colour correct
It can be used as a base/primer before applying foundation
It gives your skin a dewy fresh look

Very sheer coverage
Transfers very, very easily – helps a bit if you set it with powder, but then removes the dewy look
Strong sunscreen smell

I have not used it long enough to attest to its long term colour correcting properties.

But all being said…. I would buy this product again!
I will not use it as a foundation but I want to use it in summer as a tinted sunscreen.
The selling point therefore on this product for me is the high SPF and its nourishing & fading qualities.

*Beware! Don’t get it in your eyes… it BURNS!!
