Yeah that's my main "issue" with Bethesda games. I've put off starting Skyrim to wait for a mature modding scene + Bethesda to release all DLCs. I even stopped my FNV playthrough back in the day because my focus shifted from the fairly complex politics to modding.
Aye I basically used the CC. I did use the console for some quick minor tweaks, I won't do any massive stuff after Helgen, but the CC lighting makes it impossible to really get the best look as you need to do that under a variety of lighting conditions.

I got about 90 mods right now, three of them ones I made myself - one for a custom pet companion named Garm, and one for a custom race - but based off the Nord template. Those I shared.

The last one is actually named after my character and has his look imported as a preset. What I am doing is very minor tweaks as he goes through the game. Growing the beard a little, adding a little age, and some minor things to his base race (Wolf Blooded) as he moves forwards in certain quests. That way I get to customize his look and abilities based on what he does in the game - sticking to lore and his personality. Lots of fun and very immerssive.
