Disappointing CC Cream

I was so excited to try this product as it promises a lot of thing such as:

"Begins to fade the appearance of dark spots in just two weeks! Instantly evens tone, plus improves skin over time. Powerful sun protection with Broad Spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 50+. Buildable light to medium coverage."

I have been wanting to try an everyday light coverage CC or BB cream for so long but this product really disappointed me. Firstly I tried to apply it with a brush and that was a no-go then I thought because it is more like a cream/moisturiser that I would try use my hands I found that I had to use a lot of product to cover my whole face – which means that the tube won’t last very long.

After applying the product all over my face I was quite ‘shiny’ and blotchy so I then applied some powder which made my skin look even more blotchy (see the picture)

By the end of the day it looks like I have nothing on my skin, I definitely would not repurchase this product.

Extraordinary cover even in harsh conditions - AVON

Avon CC cream is easy and soft to apply leaving my skin flawless and radiant.
It has SPF 50 which is wonderful for me as I am working mostly outside and the cc cream protects my skin from sunlight.

Avon Ideal Flawless CC Colour Corrector Cream in Ivory

Before testing the new Avon CC cream, I wasn't really sure what it was meant to do.. All I knew was that people had been raving about a wonderful new product.. that product was Avon's CC cream! CC stands for colour corrector and this product is meant to deal with the many issues that most of us struggle with on a daily basis. I have always had really bad bags under my eyes, they have gotten a lot worse due to lack of sleep because of two very active little ones... nothing I seem to do gets rid of them and have always had red pigmentation in my face. I am extremely fair skinned so any little mark or flaw tends to be really noticeable. The colour CC cream that I received to test was Avon CC in Ivory (64462) and it matches my skin perfectly!! I was excited at the prospect of trying this lightweight cream that contains a multi-tasking formula said to correct colour pigments and conceal flaws immediately. It sounds absolutely amazing!! who wouldn't want to fade away the look of pigmentations and hide any flaws? Couldn't wait to try it out! I love the packaging of the product, It is simple yet classy and sophisticated. I love that the CC is written in Silver, the writing catches the light and makes it shimmer. This adds to the appearance of luxury and class. Just by looking at it, I know that I want to try it out.. Really looks like a special product. I love that the writing is clearly visible and the fact that it is SPF 50 is highlighted. This is an added benefit of the product.. not only are you correcting problems, but you are protecting your skin from any future damage caused by the sun. I think that it is incredibly important to protect your skin and love the added bonus that Avon has provided. The cap on the tube is easy to unscrew.. no more fiddling and struggling with packaging. So many products are not user friendly, but Avon's CC cream is effortless and so easy to use! Just a small amount of the cream placed in the palm of my hand went so far. It might only be a 30 ml tube, but because you only use a small amount at every use, it really will last you a long time. I think it is well worth the money! Avon has a special at the moment. If you are wanting to try it, there is a trial price. The normal cost of this CC Cream is R159.95 but the trial price is only R84.95!! Now that is a saving of over 45% and an absolute bargain!! Definitely worth getting your hands on a tube!! I love that there is such a large range of colours to choose from. With this wide range, you will be able to find a shade that matches perfectly with your skin tone. The Ivory was my perfect match! From the very first time I used this CC cream, I was impressed! it was so easy to apply and blended into my skin so well. No patches and it was as if I wasn't wearing any make up at all! I have been using it now continuously for two weeks and I love the results! my skin looks so much brighter and clearer. Its not as red and the colour is a lot better.. Not patchy at all. The bags, even though they are still there, they are a lot better looking. My face looks more youthful and I don't look as tired. My face is illuminated and there is a glow. The cream feels so light and my face isn't weighed down with the make up. The results really are unbelievable. What an improvement!! I absolutely am in love with this product and have found that it works for me! My overall colour is so much better and I have replaced my foundation with this CC cream! My face is happy with the results! I will definitely continue to use this product! Using it everyday for two weeks and I still have quite a lot left in the tube!! what a wonderful product, I give it the thumbs up! Will be telling friends and family to get a tube! thanks so much Beauty Bulletin and Avon for this awesome opportunity! This product was made for me!!

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:

Pro's:
50 SPF
Spreads evenly & easily
Evens out skin tone and really does colour correct.
Can be used as a base/primer before applying foundation
Gives your skin a dewy fresh look

Con's:
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 pint 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!!
