The cream works more as a foundation. The consistency is thick and creamy. You need very little to apply for your whole faces to be covered. Once this is applied you do not need to put on cover up. This works I do see a reduction in my sun spots. However I still see that my skin has a some what uneven tone. The cream contains sunscreen which is nice when I go out I do not have to apply any additional. I know that it works because when I went out in the sun I did receive a slight burn but not on my face. I think the cream has to be used many days before you would see a dramatic effect. I brought the light color and it is still a little darker for my complexion. So it has to be blended very well. I still use another lighter moisturizer at a different time of day. I am unsure if the coverage would be well enough as a moisturizer with no additional products being used. The price is of average value but often times you can find it on sale and use a coupon. I would say that the product is worth a try and that is doe work just not as well as I would have hoped.
