Dr. Gross Anti-Aging CC Cream, SPF 18
I gave it 4 stars for the low SPF and price. For Dr. Dennis Goss it should be higher SPF for the price and larger amounts of products as well. I think as a loyal customer it feels like we are being cheated. However, I love this CC cream. It's the best I've used and reason why I still buy it even though it's low SPF. Don't expect it to cover your face completely if you have flaws like me you will put a foundation on top. However, if you want light coverage without foundation it's still beautiful, it's not oily, it doesn't smell bad, and it looks lovely on the skin.
Looks like your own skin!
I would have to agree that this is not a full coverage foundation-but that's why I really like it! I wanted a light, natural looking foundation! If you are looking for full coverage, this is not what you want.The color is perfect (Light/Medium), and it feels wonderful on the skin.The only downfall is the price and size of the tube.You don't get much for the price so I do not use it everyday.If the tube was larger I would I would continue to purchase it but right now it's not enough bang for the buck.
Poor Coverage and SPF is Way too low
I just received the cream yesterday and was anxious to try it out this morning. Unfortunately I have to agree with a couple of other reviewers - unless you apply a LOT, the coverage is only average. But the real kicker, and I wish I had realized this before making the purchase, is that the sun protection is just too low, particularly if you're not adding sun protection from another source. I'm fairly certain there are other BB and CC creams on the market that have at least an SPF of 20, which is the minimum amount that should be applied. So this is going back and I'll have to try another brand. Too bad.
Dr Gross is Dr Great
All of the products I've tried are excellent!
I've tried several brands of the CC cream, even bought a couple.
I received this product in the Discovery kit and loved it.
It goes on like silk and blends out beautifully.
The Medium shade is a bit dark for my fair skin.
Natural, lasting finish with helpful SPF
I use this over serums with BE matte foundation on top for trouble spots, and I like the lasting, natural coverage plus SPF that the two provide. I'm in my late 40's with fair, combination skin that has a lot of issues - rosacea, broken blood vessels, darker spots, expression lines -, and while I would rarely be able to wear this on its own, I do find that it provides some coverage and an excellent foundation for concealer or foundation in selected spots.
Also, I notice that my skin feels plumped up and soft all day, plus this CC doesn't melt into my skin or slide off (or into fine lines and wrinkles) the way some others have. As a teacher who rarely has a moment to refresh my makeup, that means a lot to me.
I've tried quite a few BB and CC creams over the past few months, but I keep coming back to this one.
Would love to see it in a more economical size, although I've found it lasts a long time too.
I was very disappointed in this CC Cream. It did not cover the redness on my face at all. It is also very high priced for the small amount of 1oz. in the tube that does not even cover any imperfections.
This product is the perfect foundation. It covers and conceals flaws but looks natural! I put it on over moisturizer for a sheer look, or use more if I need it for an evening look. It is not shiny or matte... just nice and natural. The spf is a must these days and I feel protected year round. I am 65 and I love the natural canvas this product gives me!
This product seems like his tinted moisturizer...
Repackaging at its finest while giving customers a smaller size in a 1 oz tube. Although one can still buy the All-In-One Tinted Moisturizer elsewhere which was 1.7oz, it had the same ingredients as far as I can tell. It's not yellow or orange....I ordered the medium. My skin tone is neutral and on bare skin it's very matte...like it better over a serum. It is very light weight and looks very natural and while I like it, doubtful I'll wear it for every occasion.
not so great
I am a 73 year old woman who rarely wears makeup, my family would tell you I never wear makeup. I did not like this product. I have many imperfections at my age especially redness on my cheeks and nose. Dark splotches and freckles. This was not the product for me and did not give me "overall coverage"
This one is a winner!!!! :-)
I have tried a few different QVC make up lines in the search for the right foundation for me and was starting to get discouraged. I'm an African American female with fairly blemish free skin, so I neither want NOR need a heavy coverage make up. This one goes on like silk and blended in PERFECTLY with my skin tone. I agree with those who have said it's light coverage, but light coverage is what I sought. No heavy, pasty, pancakey feel---Hooray!!!! I've also tried Josie Maran CC creme--chalky on my face, Josie Maran 5 in 1 tinted moisturizer--thick and pasty, difficult to apply, felt like face was painted....and IT Cosmetics which was the biggest disaster of all---didn't blend with my skin tone, and looked like I was wearing a mask. I'm so glad I persisted in my search. This one is a winner. So glad I got it on Auto-Delivery!!!!!
Was disappointed in the coverage. The CC cream I bought at the drugstore offers better coverage for some redness that I have and has an SPF of 15. Should not have to apply twice to get the desired results. Everything this product advertised can be found in other CC creams at a lower price. It is nothing special.
I use this product every day. For me, it provides good coverage that looks natural, stays all day and leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated. I also appreciate the SPF it offers. I just received my second auto delivery shipment and will keep it coming. Thank you for this great product.
