It says light coverage but I'd say it's medium. It covers my acne scars for the most part & evens out most imperfections in my skin. I do however still have to use something separate to cover my under eye circles. I like it because it gives you that no make up look & it makes your skin look like it's glowing!
I have light post acne scaring and a light amount will cover the scaring. They are under the skin, not deep in the skin. CC cream covers them up all day and doesn't look heavy, goopy, or noticeable. I would definitely recommend.
