This stuff is AMAZING!!! I pray that they never quite making this. It's easy to forget that this stuff is on and I can't imagine ever wearing normal foundation again. I went to wear it once and had to immediately take it off. After wearing this stuff a few times, the normal foundation feels like wearing a mud mask around all day. This does a great job evening out skin tone. It's not going to provide a huge amount of coverage. I'm 28, and wrinkles aren't creeping up on me yet but discoloration is. This stuff is a great remedy. I quite smoking around a year ago, and for whatever reason, I started breaking out here and there. I have to use a little concealer on top of this and set with a powder if I want it to cover the redness. However from day to day, just to even out my skin tone, I just use this tinted moisturizer and that's it. LOVE IT!!!!
I like this tinted moisturizer. It has VERY light coverage but that is good for summertime and it didn't break me out and matched my skin.
Recommend to: Budget, minimal coverage seekers, slight redness/uneven skin tone
I'm now on my second bottle of this. It's now marketed as a BB cream, and it basically works the same way. Same formula. If you're looking for coverage for more than an uneven skin tone or redness - do not buy! I put this on first, under my Clinique matte powder, and it covers up the slight redness in my skin. I can definitely see a difference. It also feels/smells better on my skin than sunscreen, which is a big plus. I don't have to worry about sunscreen on my face anymore. If you have medium or regular skin, then it will most likely be moiturizing enough. I don't have trouble with it unless it's winter.
this was my first tinted moisturizer now packaged as a BB cream although ive heard its the same formula.. this is a rediscovered love of mine at first i didn't know what to expect it gives a light coverage and takes about 5 minutes to set it is great at evening out skin tone but does not cover major blemishes and dark spots so its best to use either a concealer or setting powder for more coverage.. i adore this product its not greasy and with a good setting powder (i use stay matte by rimmel) it lasts about 5-8 hours with minimal fading (i have dry combo skin) if you have dry skin its great, it doesn't stick to my dry patches on my cheeks or around my nose ( like the rimmel and revlon bb cream does) and provides good moisture but i always recommend using a moisturizer before any face product it has a great texture its not too thick or thin blends in nicely and spreada evenly i hae used it with my hands but you dont get alot of coverage that way so i apply it is stipple it on with a stipple brush and blend it out with a buffing brush and it comes out flawless i would definitely recommend this product and will buy again ita also a great product for summer because its light weight and very easy to apply ..LOVE IT!
I absolutely love this tinted moisturizer. Now that I am 22 and am no longer in my teenage "experimental" phase, I want a natural finish that does not look super caked on like the tons of foundation I used to use. I have light skin, but I use light to medium because it blends super nicely and gives me a nice warm touch. It's not the best is you're looking for super coverage, but I apply my almay smart shade concealer over any stubborn areas, and, together, they are the perfect match. I suggest finishing with a loose powder to extend the lasting potential. I have been using this product for about six months now, and I absolutely love it. It lasts all day long; the SPF is great, and I never have an issue with streaking.
I buy this whenever I can find it at Target. It is my favorite TM and I have tried many. Pros: very smooth and light coverage. Does not cake at all. Can slap this on and not worry about it looking patchy. Looks like no makeup in the bright sun. For more coverage I like Boots No 7 TM. But for regular day-to-day this is great.
I have very drk skin prone to redness on my upper cheeks. My sole interest in makeup is to hide what I percieve as flaws, and look good. So I will try both low and high end makeup if there is any chance something will work for me. This was adequate, like many such products in the foundation and/or tm range, just average with no desire to repurchase. It had a decent semi matte finish, little coverage but being a tm I didn't expect much more. I just didn't see any advantage over using this vs bronzer and then spot concealing to even tone.
This was the first tinted moisturizer that I had tried. I picked it up on a whim because I was out and about relaxing at starbucks when I realized that my face was dry and peeling (I had just started using a salicylic acid face wash and spot treatment), so I walked over to the CVS next door and grabbed this up. I applied it in the bathroom and it went on smooth and silky. It was cool and liquidy, and absorbed into the skin slowly, but once it absorbed and dried, it left my skin feeling soft and smooth. By the end of the day my dry patches had diminished and my skin still felt nice. The coverage was very good, it covered all my blemishes and dry patches nicely, and it matched my skin tone perfectly. I was also glad it had SPF. Lasts all day without wearing off or leaving me an oil slick. Made me look moist and fresh. I sometimes add powder over for a more matte look and more sun protection. All in all an excellent TM.
I will never buy this ever again. ZERO COVERAGE. I get it's a tinted moisturizer, but even my former HG Clinique TM had moderate coverage. Age and the dry skin patches that come with it have finally forced me to cease using TM's on a regular basis and start wearing foundations with medium to full coverage. When I put this on my face, it doesn't look like it's any different. I've had it for about a year because I prefer wearing lighter skin makeup in the hot summer months, and I remember that last year I wasn't that impressed, so I gave it another go this summer. It was still a dud. And even if it was dirt cheap, it's still money that I will likely end up throwing away. The only bonus is the tube and the tiny opening makes it easier to control the amount that comes out. And that's all, folks! Not buying this again.
It moisturizes, but that's about it. There is ZERO coverage in this, and even though I don't have acne-prone skin, I still like to use products with some degree of coverage. Also, it smells like sunscreen, and that kind of turns me off. Not impressed, but I'll try to use it up during the summer months.
