This product is a true game-changer. For people that had issues with VitaZing turning orange, this is perfect. I'm fairer and wear the Light-Medium, which, like VitaZing, will tint to match my skin tone; this is so much more advanced than VitaZing, or anything really! It isn't greasy feeling, even on my combination-oily skin, it protects with antioxidants and a moderate SPF, and it just feels nice on my skin. It provides light coverage--essentially a "veil of radiance" without looking chalky or powdery. Plus, its unique technology intuitively protects the skin from environmental damage and pollution so I can face the day without worrying that I'll burn or get sun damage. I love it!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by harpier Very, Very Light Coverage
Don't mistake this CC cream as a substitute for more traditional foundation options, unless you want a REALLY minimalist look. It provides almost no coverageâits consistency is closer to most tinted moisturizers than other CC or BB creamsâand even with a complement of pressed powder, it doesn't provide the soft, matte finish that I personally am looking for. The texture on the skin is light and velvety, but without extremely liberal application, which is somewhat out of keeping with its own light coverage, I also doubt its suitability as a primary sun protection product.
It's also worth noting that even the "very light" shade was too tan on my skin. Admittedly I am VERY fair, regularly (though not always) the lightest shade for most foundation and powder products in many brands. But for those with extremely fair skin, particularly those with pink (rather than neutral, olive, or peach/gold) undertones, it's unlikely to look right.

I love this product! My whole life I've hated to wear liquid foundation. It just felt aweful on my face. I tried every one on the market. Then when mineral make-up was all the craze I bought into it and really liked it. But I'm now over forty and mineral make-up just gets caught in the fine lines and makes me look old. So when the tinted mosturizers came along I gave them a try. Some I liked, some not so much. But when Origins first came out with this product it sounded like the perfect fit for me. It feels light on my face, almost like nothing at all. It covers up all the imperfections and evens out my skin tone. Note, if you like to look like you are wearing make-up this might not be right for you. It gives a natural look and I just love it!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Christo Great CC Cream
As a CC cream, this stuff works beautifully. The texture is light, creamy and silky. It goes on evenly. Definitely not a full/ medium coverage cream, so don't purchase it with the intent to use it as a covering foundation. It does make for a great tinted moisturizer, good for light makeup day. Evens out my skin tone and diminishes freckles very well. It also just feels good. Putting it on feels like giving my face a drink. The lightest shade looks great on my fair skin. May not be light enough for very fair, pinkish white skin tones
