Before trying this product, I'd never used a cc cream before. Not that I had anything against it, but it just never crossed my mind...
I was skeptical at first and had no idea what to expect from using it, but figured I had nothing to lose. Then I received a sample of Studio Gear's Hydrating CC Cream in the mail. I applied a small amount to my hand to test it, and was shocked when it started to change colors (adjusting to my skin tone). Yes I may sound like an idiot, but again, keep in mind I had no clue what to expect.
Thanks to Studio Gear, I am now a believer in the magic that is cc cream, and here are a few reasons why:
Hydrating: After applying, you can instantly feel the difference.
Lightweight: Does not feel heavy or clog your pores. I occasionally wear it in place of foundation if I'm trying to give my face a break from full makeup.
Matches skin tone surprisingly well: I was given three shades to choose from - Linen, Natural, and Wheat. I chose the lightest option possible, since my skin tone at the time was very pale. It matched very well when I first used it, and still matches now, even though I've spent considerably more time in the sun recently.
