I'm an avid bb cream user (korean ones), and I live in Texas where it's in the high 90's-100's all the time. I do have drier skin and I prefer facial makeup to provide moisture and not clog my pores. I used this in 3.0 for about a week, which was a bit light for my nc 25-30 skin (go for 4.0 if you are in this range, esp. during the summer). Initially, I noticed it was not drying and felt very light & natural. No break outs either. But, by the end of the week, my skin DID significantly dry out, leaving flaky patches around my nose & eye area. Kinda weird, but I think my skin was missing the usual moisture it gets from bb cream. If you have oily skin, you'll love this as it will give you a nice natural finish, but if you have drier skin, I think prolonged use will dry you out depending on your climate.
