I generally use a normal non- tinted moisturizer on week days when I'll be putting on foundation anyway for work, but this is perfect w/ a quick swipe of mascara for the weekends when I'm just running errands, cleaning, etc., given that my skin isn't broken out (in which case I'll still need alittle extra coverage, as this is sheer). I find it has about as much coverage as a regular tinted moisturizer & the lightest color works great on me (I have light warm-toned skin). The pump packaging is awesome! Olay usually never dissapoints me when I try a new product of thiers, and this is no exception, so I have no problem spending $24 on it @ CVS, which is quite higher than anything I usually buy at the d/s, except thier Regenerist Microsculpting Cream (which I love,love,love). I will definitely repurchase this when I run out, but it'll still last me awhile as I only use 2 or 3 times per week. It's been six months & I've only used about 1/2 the bottle, so I consider this fairly cheap! It's loaded with plenty of beneficial nutrients, has a nice creamy thick texture that sinks in quickly, and doesn't leave my skin feeling tacky, which seems to be the case with a few others I tried. Good quality product!
Very nice product, great daily moisturizer that provides a tiny bit of natural-looking coverage with some SPF, and enough moisture to keep my combination skin happy without any oiliness.
However, the lightest colour available, Fair, is still way too dark for my pale skin, and come summer I will switch to a product with a higher SPF than the 15 this product provides, so I will not be able to use it in the summer either. Pity, I really like it otherwise.
I heart this moisturizer ;)
i just wanna ask can we use it at night? or have to remove it before sleep? cos im looking for a moisturizer that can provides a bit of coverage n no need to remove at night?
I have been using this product for a few years now. I love the amount of coverage you get while it is extremely moisturizing to my VERY dry skin. I typically will not wear this alone though. It is a little too sheer for me on a regular basis. However, this is perfect for summer when your going to the beach or out boating and don't want to put any make up on. It has spf and enough coverage to even out any imperfections. The color looks scary initially as is it very brown but it blends amazingly. I absolutely adore this product and will be buying it over and over again.
About a year ago I made the switch from foundations to tinted moisturizers. I never thought my skin would look ok with "just" tinted moisturizer but it has worked out great. The coverage isn't heavy and it does not settle into your pores like heavier foundation. The color is just right- if you put it on light enough it doesn't look like you are wearing anything but it evens your skin tone. The color is light, but it looks fresh and natural. *Probably not ideal for more formal events where you want to be "made-up".
This is perfect for a day outside in the Austin, Texas sun! Light coverage and moisture and SPF- everything you need!
This product serves two purposes. First, an anti-ageing moisturiser, and second, as a sheer foundation.
I like it for it's anti-ageing, moisturising properties. My skin feels smooth after using it, so that's a plus. But I don't like it as a sheer foundation because the colour is wrong (makes me look quite orange), it is oily (even after I put a dusting of EDM's finishing dust or something similar) and it has poor coverage (tinted moisturisers should be like Kiehl's).
But this product still get three stars because I enjoy putting on tinted moisturisers. It makes me feel like I'm doing something good for my skin and it's fun.
I might have found my moisturizer! The touch of color is very light. Me being a very pale redhead most "light" colored products are much too dark. This is perfect. It evens out my skin tone. There is enough moistureizing for my dry skin. My only complaint is the parfumey smell. Oh and one pump of the pump puts out too much so I have to be careful to only half pump or I end up wasting some. I am very pleased.
Great tinted moisturiser for people who don't really like the feel of foundation. Doesn't dry up my skin and feels comfy, not heavy at all.
I love this moisturiser as it cuts one step out of the making up process ;) I have a lot of the Olay Total Effects range and was keen to try this when it came out. I love the pump which dispenses just the right amount of product and I find it really easy to blend. I know a lot of people reviewing this have found it to be too dark; well I am a pale skinned Irish blonde and I found the colour perfect for me. I don't think it would be enough coverage for me in the winter but the tint is just right for looking healthy in the summer time. I will defintely repurchase, although maybe when on offer because I do agree its pricey for a d/s brand.
