Studio Gear Hydrating CC Cream Review

I went a bit CC crazy this past year. I've tried ones from $48-$13. I've never tried a BB cream but from what I hear about it, BB, CC, DD, it's all based on preference but very much the same. I do like that this particular CC is geared toward correcting color tone, fights aging, retains moisture, & covers and treats blemishes w/ a non oily radiant finish. Who doesn't want that?

It's available in three shades, Linen, Natural, and Wheat. 
I went with Natural since I'm a medium in most CC's.

 Just be careful, a little goes a long way, so just a little squeeze. 
Mine started flowing out so, don't leave it opened to long.

This was just a tiny bit but still too much for just my hand! It comes out of the bottle as a grayish white with micro beads. I initially thought I had received the wrong color! LOL. But it quickly changes to match you skin tone. Like.magic.

 As you can see now I really did add too much product on my hand..less is more!

Check out the Without SG CC on the left side of my hand...definitely not as radiant as the right side With SG CC. The color is now enriched, dewy and even.

As for the 72 hr hydration? I think this is true! My skin, even though I washed it off last night, obvi, still feels moisturized and it's been really dry lately so this is a nice improvement.

By the end of the day it was a bit too shiny. I would recommend a light powder to set the cream instead of my usual foundation.

Coverage you ask? Like most CC Creams it's more of a tinted moisturizer w/added benefits. Personally, for my own problematic complexion, I add foundation on top for going out or work. On days off just the CC Cream is fine with a little blush.
