Bought it because it was on sale and turns out this is one of the worst products I've ever put on my face! Not only does it make your skin look flaky and gross and not cover anything, it leaves your face looking sparkly and gave me the worst breakout I've had in a year and a half. won't even be thinking about repurchasing this product. . .
I'm not understanding why this product gets such negative reviews. First off, this is not a foundation so you can't expect every color shade and you can't expect full coverage either!
i bought this off ebay, and it think it cost me AUS$15. this product has only finally come to Australia and its $23 in the shop for 70mls? talk about pricey, and its only in SPF15 too. The one i got is SPF 30.
First off, i really like this, for a tinted mosituriser it gives very good coverage! My skin isnt terrrible, and I hate wearing liquid foundation. I either wear mineral foundation or tinted mosituriser just to even out my skin tone and hide the minor imperfections. But I find this gives me very good coverage me and it really does even out my skin tone. It also has this shimmer in it, it's not bad and you face doesn't look liek a glitter bomb. It just gives your skin this dewy sort of glowing look I like. I also find it matches my skin tone really well! After i put it on, I set it with some powder and put on a very light bronzer and i look nice and glowy:) I get alot of compliments when i where this moisturiser.
The one thing i dont like about it besides the high price, is the texture. I feels really thick when I rub it on my face making it hard to blend. So what I do is pump out 2 -3 pumps of AVeeno and 1 small pump of Oil of Olay. This makes the moisturiser easier to blend and smoother texture. Overall it doesn't leave a cakey feeling like a heavy duty foundation so that is a good thing.
Another thing i like is the pump, very hygienic and 1-2 pumps suffices for me.
I would buy this again, but im going to see if i can buy it on ebay for less... $22 is a ridiculous amount for a supermarket/drugstore brand. Aveeno must be raking it in!
The medium color is just too pale for me, even at my winter palest. I think medium would be too pale even for a Caucasian with a tan... it's soooo light! It's disappointing that this is their darkest shade.
Price - is insanely high for Wal-Mart. $20 for one tiny bottle? Ouch.
Packaging - Is even worse when you think of the price. It's a small bottle with a pump. Right out of the packaging the pump is smeared with the product. As you use it more and more, the entire pump somehow becomes covered in the product. It's really obnoxious.
Pro's - Evens out my skin tone very well,
Makes my ghostly pale skin look a little tanner while still looking natural,
Just gives me beautiful, clear skin.
Con's - The packaging sucks,
I don't like that I absolutely have to apply it with my fingers or it looks strange.
For everyone complaining that it doesn't give you enough coverage - Hello, it's a TINTED MOISTURIZER, not a foundation or concealer!
Love this product! I don't understand why it gets a bad rap. I never really post on these things but when i saw how awful the reviews were I wanted to say my opinion. first of all its not for people who have oily skin it will slide off and become spotty after a few hours. the coverage is perfect you can easly find your shade and the smell is great. it dries pretty quickly but i would recommend using a transclucent powder over it to set it. it stays on all day and it beautiful flawless finish when it dries. I would recomment this to anyone who doesnt want to feel cakey, and has acne to be covered it, it may just be a tinted moisturizer but it sure does give a lot of coverage.
This is the best tm and I have tried many. My skin in oily to nornal and this works for me. Don't understand why so many people dislike it.
I wish I'd read some reviews here before purchasing (but it was on sale and i needed a tinted moisturizer). I am so on the fence with this one. The medium (as others before have mentioned) is way too light... i am wondering if it throws a "whitish" cast on the face due to the sunscreen ingredients. However i quite like the formulation, thickness and even though it is too pale going on it seems to adapt to my skin tone and actually give decent coverage for red areas. It does make my skin look more "radiant" as the package suggests. I am not sure about pore clogging yet (haven't used it long enough) but I wouldnt be surprised if it happens because my skin is stupidly sensitive. It can also feel a little 'stingy' on the face , particularly if i've exfoliated before hand. All in all, whilst I dont hate this product, I don't think I'll be re-purchasing.
I tried this stuff last year and really disliked it. It's just a moisturizer with sheer color, smells weird, and is pore-clogging.
Horrible. No coverage whatsoever and little sparkles on my skin. Packaging is good.
- Tint gives a nice glow if you have pale skin and evens out pinkish undertones
- Makes you look radiant
- Moisturizes without feeling heavy
- Stings if you get even the tiniest amount in your eyes
- Not exceptional coverage, you may want to use a concealer with it - although it has the consistency of makeup, it does not have the corresponding coverage
Overall this is a great product for your summer holiday - tan compatible, natural looking, easy to use, moisturizing and with the added benefit of a sunscreen.
