I'm completely hooked on this product.
During the warmer months, I like to reapply sunscreen at least once during the day (more often if I'm spending a lot of time outside). This left me having to completely redo my makeup. This product streamlines the whole sunscreen/makeup process. It moisturizes and protects my skin with a mineral based sunscreen. After a couple of minutes, it sinks in and leaves a natural finish that provides moderate but still natural looking coverage.
I'm loving this TM. The version I have is SPF 30, which is excellent. I find it provides a fair amount of coverage, and it leaves a nice soft finish.
I'm finding this TM excellent! I'm reviewing the new spf 30, can't comment on spf 20 as never used it.This has good coverage for a TM.Better than I expected.It's quite thick when it comes out the tube,but glides on effortlessly. I wouldn't describe it as "barely there" It's good coverage.I do use powder and concealer with this and also use a sunscreen underneath ,but it's better than some foundations I've used. Looks very natural on. Never cakey and does not settle into lines around eyes.Excellent sun protection, physical only sunscreen which is a godsend for me as I can't tolerate chemical sunscreen around eyes.No alcohol or fragrance.Feels light on, as if I'm not wearing anything. I ordered samples of light/medium and medium, and could use either on my nw 15-20 complexion.I was looking for a lighter make up for summer and this is everything I was looking for. This will be my summer make up for as long as it's available.I was going to try a BB cream and now we have CC creams. But really, they are just tinted moisturisers.So happy to have found this.
Very sheer coverage - even lighter than I expected from something with Barely There and Sheer in the name. I prefer light coverage, but this stuff couldn't even even out the mild redness on my cheeks. It's also not particularly matte - I set it with powder and still found myself a bit shiny.
If you like a dewy finish and barely there coverage, you'd probably like this. It's not a bad product at all but it doesn't suit my needs so I won't purchase a full-size after I use up my sample.
Their old formula was great; their new shades suck (for me, anyway).
There used to be a shade called "Sheer Neutral" that was perfect for my skin tone. Just as I was starting to run out of my very first tube of it, they went and changed the formula to increase the SPF. This is normally a good thing, I know--but the colors all changed in the process, and now there isn't one single shade that I can use. My slightly-light medium skin tone puts me somewhere in between their makes-me-look-corpsey tint and their hey-everybody-I'm-wearing-that-orange-self-tanning-stuff-from-the-70's tint.
I find my HG for SPF tinted moisturizer, and then they have to go and mess with it.
Back to Square Zero. Damn, damn, DAMN!
Just bought this again after many years not using it. Was intrigued with the increased sunscreen. I bought medium which was the right tone but this made my skin look shiny and dull at the same time. Also the color turned orangish on me. Coverage is super sheer and did not barely even out my skin tone.
However, even though sheer you must get the right color because the colors I tried run yellow and if you get the wrong color it may oxidize on you. It did on me and I HAD the right color. I tried this under a foundation as well but it adds too much additional color for that and messed with the look of my normal foundations.
I give up. Just not a good product for me. Wanted to love it since it is an all physical sunscreen and fragrance free but tube is small for 15 bucks of sheer orangey tint. Cannot even compete with my Lancome TM which gives me SPF 30 and evens my skin tone without turning orange.
I've used this product for years. I used to buy a regular foundation and "cut" it with my moisturizer, this solves the need for that. Light coverage, just enough to even out my skin tone. I think a little more product for the price would be nice, but if you look at the price for amount of other department store products its pretty equal.
Pro: perfect color for my skin tone. I have very pale, yellow based skin. This stuff evens my skintone out, without looking like 'pancake'.
The package is perfect, and very hygienic.
Con: it's VERY expensive.
I love this. My skin is quite clear, so it only requires a bit of evening out.
This feels almost luxurious in texture but absorbs very well and applies very easily, both when using a brush or just fingers.
Its finish is lightly glowy and I use a mattifying powder for my combination skin. Lastly on performance, it does not irritate my skin at all, which makes me very happy.
The colour selection probably isn't marvellous: I use the lightest, "Sheer Fair", and it suits me perfectly when I am NC25 in the summer, it's a touch too dark for the winter when I am NC20.
Nevertheless, it's one of the few products in the general foundation category that I would buy again due to its great attributes.
Ok I like this product. My skin is finicky and I have no problems with this. Coverage is sheer, but I like that. The Zinc oxide seems to calm my skin. I am fair with warm tones and that is who this is for. Good buy!
