Want to order the Skinn tsv and need to decide what color bb cream to choose, Light or medium, was wondering if you know if it runs on the dark or lighter side. Am usually a medium, but one reviewer stated she thought the med was orange looking. Thanks for the help.

I think it is the perfect true medium actually.

I got it in a TTV several months ago and really wanted the light but it sold out so I go the medium and it works well for me. I am usually on the lighter side of medium except in the summer then I am really a true medium. With that said, now that winter is coming and I am losing some of my summer tan it is a tad too dark for me, but it is thin and very forgiving. I do really like this CC cream! Not orange at all.

I'd say if you are on the lighter side of medium I'd get the light, you can always add more color with bronzer etc. But if you are true medium then this will work perfect.

HTH!

Miss Klynn, thanks for your input. I am on the lighter side of medium, use self tanner, but not on my face. However, with winter coming, I think maybe I should go with the light. If u had to reorder would u go with the light or dark, which was your best maych, being that u consider yourself med tone. Thanks again..

If I had to order another right now, I'd order the light. I haven't used the light but it did look like the warmer side of light on air. I think that would be a good choice for you.

Think I am will order now. Am also thinking of ordering two kits since the collg. cream in it is usually 68.00 on its own and got rave reviews, also the other two wrinkle products got great reviews too.

I have the medium and loved the color on me it was one of the better CC creams I have tried, but one draw back has Bisthmus Oxychloride and my skin started itching like crazy one day at work. I had to run to ladies room to wash it off and haven't used it since. Shame cause it would have been perfect for me otherwise.

Oh no!!! That's awful to have that happen. Have you tried IT CC? It runs on the lighter side of medium, great coverage too. I didn't check that ingredient list................... Can you use any of his skin care without reaction?

I wish he made a CC that is between the Light and the Medium. My best color is a mix of the Light and the Medium. The Medium by itself is a little dark, but the Light doesn't quite give me enough coverage. Kind of a pain to mix, but the outcome is worth it. The Medium doesn't show orange for me.

Unlike his BB Cream, his CC runs dark, I use the Light, usually a medium. Remember it is the CC in the TTV, not the BB.

I have the light and it is about 3 shades to dark for my fair skin that has a little redness. I have no tan but if you do tan or faux tan then it might work.

I use this CC crème everyday. I am normally a medium, but have to order the light.

Life is like a snowstorm...you'll meet a lot of flakes.

It is not orange on me. It comes out looking like a peach tone. However, I would prefer the light for the Winter months.

I use medium, but wifh the Skinn bb cream I found the light worked fine. If gives a nice smooth look to your skin
