"i spread a layer of it moisturizer on first (every night), then later three other products over the top (i do not massage them in completely, i do a thin layer of each and let it sink in overnight)- shea moisture eye cream (around the eyes only), then mix a very small dollop of shea moisture anti aging moisturizer and shea moisture brightening moisturizer in my hand in my hand together then i layer them over the top of the "it" moisturizer and shea eye cream"

Gentle, good for acne, redness relief
I think I shed a tear of relief when I first used this product. A little background --until very recently, I had extremely oily (I'm talking 1 hour after using all the matte products in the world my face would be getting that bacon grease all over) skin with severe acne. I finally got on a strong retinoid-antibiotic-benzoyl peroxide regimen and it's been helping the acne but my skin has basically been falling off my face with how dry and flaky it's become. For months now my skin has just been so angry and red/inflamed and dry that it's cracking and peeling under my eyes and around my mouth. And when I tried to use makeup, no matter how moisturizing it was, everything would cling to my flaky skin and accentuate every problem I had. Add on top of this that all the "moisturizing" facial cleansers and lotions/oils/masks I tried were stinging so badly it would literally cause me to tear up...I was nearly at my wit's end with my skin.Until I finally tried this product 2 days ago. I know it sounds kinda nuts but the effects were literally overnight, maybe even instantaneous. This didn't hurt when I put it on. As soon as I put it on, the flakiness was not noticeable and my skin looked calmer than it has in a month. This morning I was able to put makeup on over it and not look like a flaky scaly mess. I've even noticed that the giant raised plaque of flaky rough skin under my eye has receded a bit and looks less red, and it's been less than 48 hours. I must have spent nearly 400$ buying and returning things to Sephora and trying all sorts of oils and serums to fix my skin, and I think I FINALLY found my answer. If you have a problem with dry patches or rough dehydrated skin, BUY THIS. It's worth it, I don't think I can live without it. I literally feel like I'm starting to get my confidence back after a very rough couple of months. « less

Good for acne, hydrating, gentle
I have done a lot of experimenting so you won't have to! CC in a Cream is by far my favorite out of all the bigger brands I have tried. The big brand moisturizers I have used are: Dr. Perricone: More expensive, good - made my skin feel bizarrely soft immediately after application, but I was not more impressed with the long term results compared to CC in a Cream... The outcome was roughly the same and CC is cheaper so CC wins over Dr. P for that reason Dermalogica: Way too thin, and still left me with dry skin Juice Beauty: The results were not bad, although it also didn't feel as moisturizing. I should add that I am biased against "all organic" brands as the brand limits themselves from using formulated ingredients that could work better... I want my brand to have freedom to use whatever has been proven to work best First Aid Beauty: Just meh, skin never felt super hydrated, but it didn't feel gross either Mario Badescu: I cannot say enough terrible things about this moisturizer. If you look up "Top 10 ingredients to avoid in a moisturizer," BADescu's moisturizer checks off many of them. This moisturizer is the only one that made my skin red and irritated. I threw it away. Laura Mercier: More expensive and way less moisturizing than CC in Cream. Disappointed Confidence in a Cream is the winner for me. I NEVER have dead/dry skin when I use this. I use the moisturizer after showering, and then occasionally at either morning or night if my skin starts to feel thirsty. With many other brands I notice that it can feel oily and "sunscreeny," or it feels like its just sitting on my skin. This soaks in wonderfully and despite the SPF, you cannot feel it. My next complaint with other brands was that I would still seem to get dry patches on my cheeks... I forget my skin is even prone to dry patches with CC. I have combination skin and this moisturizer is perfect for the oily and dry parts. After 3+ years of bouncing around, I am choosing to settle down with CC in a Cream.

Bad for acne, drying, heavy
I was so excited to get this product since I use the CC+ product and love it. But, this cream is a strange mix of anti age ingredients and herbal smells, I NEVER get blemishes, have perfectly clear skin and just needed a new cream to replace one I loved and can no longer get. I asked if this was non-comedogenic and was told it was as are all products. But, after 2 days I have a very clogged pore and blemish right beside my nose! Also, the smell of the cream is very herbal sort of like lavender or calendula, and I find that smell annoying, interferes with my cologne, and gives me a headache. The cream itself does not seem to help my dry skin, it feels greasy on, too heavy, and sort of sticky. Not good for under makeup where I like a lighter more silky feel. Going back pronto!
