My View:

A small piece of information about CC Creams: CC Stands for Color/Complexion Correction, Texture of such creams are light weight and fast absorbing.What this actually does is that it imparts an airy veil of coverage and a boost of both instant and protective coverage."They typically have light-diffusing particles, which visually even skin tone, plus a super-dose of antioxidants.
My personal view is it does not suit oily skin. It does not provide enough moisture required for the skin. It is waterproof but stays only for a decent 4-5 hours. It has a very good consistency and spreads evenly on the skin.It has Cyclopentasiloxane which is a silicone which makes the cream easily spreadable on skin(some people are allergic to silicone and has disadvantages )...Its SPF 20 helps to avoid sunburns and tanning even if you are out in the sun wearing it.It has Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate which is insoluble in water and is widely used in sunscreens to protect skin from sun..Another ingredient Titanium Oxide is also used in sunscreen. Thats why i kept wondering what made me look more darker than my complexion after few hours of wearing this cream.. This cream oxidizes and makes my skin look much darker than it actually is. I hated this thing!!!!!!!
What i observed after applying this cream is that it reduced the appearance of fine lines and makes skin look plump and healthy. If you have damaged skin due to sun burn or any other reason this cream effectively reduces such appearances..

Pros:
  1. It gives an even complexion appearance(temporarily)
  2. It reduces appearance of wrinkles, fine lines,dull looking skin
  3. It provides effective sun protection
  4. Makes skin appear healthy and plump
  5. Conceals small dark marks
Cons:
  1. Has silicone(fills the pores and causes it to breakout)
  2. Has Titanium Dioxide which oxides after sometime , which makes skin appear darker
  3. Does not suit oily skin. 
  4. Oily skin girls must use face powder or need touch up frequently
  5. Limited shades ie only Bronze and Beige available.
Recommendation:

I rate this 3.5/5.
This cream can effectively make your skin appear even toned, temporarily corrects flaws, and flaky skin, makes skin look free of all kind of flaws especially complexion appears even.. Though it has advantages i will not ignore the fact that it has silicone which fills the flaws but blocks the pores which in turn causes acne breakout. Especially people suffering from acne must stay away from this cream.. I think this cream can be used on special occasions when you need that perfect look... I will not use this as a daily cream!!!!!
