I may have mentioned but I could not stand Adobe colours at one time but they have come a long way. I still find the yellow annoying. I like to use faithful but I suppose neutral would work quite well. Just bring back some of the image life using the basic adjustments. I will try it out.

I have an LR preset I use for skin tones. Clarity -10, Vibrance +10, saturation -10 and blacks - 25. Using camera faithful  takes takes most of the yellow out and smoothens skin imperfections but it can suffer a bit on colour. I then tune the backs, whites, shadows/highlights as required.

DPP has better color profiles than LR
better contrast
no yellow casts

The yellow cast in ACR raw processing disappears if the "camera neutral" profile is applied, then the colors should look like dpp or in-camera...

thanks for the tip
i never liked the neutral profile, all the colors look poor and i never used it.

Personally i use 3 profiles

Faithful for portraits
Standard + Landscape for traveling (where i take the sky from landscape, and everything else from standard)
Bodies: 5D3 + 600D
Lenses: STM 40, EF 50 1.4, EF 85 1.8, EF 100L, EF 24-105L, EF 24-70 2.8 II, EF 70-200 2.8 IS II, Samyang 14mm, Samyang 8mm Fisheye, EF-S 10-22, EF-S 15-85 and my old 350D relic reminding me how i started.
