This tinted moisturizer is meant for dry skin types and is NOT oil free, however my dry skin is perfect for this TM and it makes my skin feel really soft and silky and flake free.
Upon first seeing the "tint" I feared that this would be much too dark for my fair skin but it is actually very forgiving and brightens my complexion while evening it out and giving it a nice glow.
I am bummed that this product does not contain SPF, especially when so many other of Olay's products do.
I can wear this by itself on a lazy day and it evens out my complexion nicely although it really doesn't hide true zits or anything of that nature. But underneith my mineral foundation it is EXCELLENT. It really works well as a base and makes my makeup go on smoother than almost any other moisturizer I have used, w/o the use of silicones. Yay.
One of the downfalls is it takes a while to absorb and in the meantime does feel a little bit sticky and isn't transfer resistant at that point. But overall my dry skin is very happy with this TM and no breakouts from it yet! I hope I can continue adding this to my permanant line up of daily skin care.
Update: Unfortunately I had to quit using this. I did start to experience a few minor breakouts from this, not so much breakouts I guess but more like just an increase in clogged pores. But my biggest problem became that I just couldn't tolerate how long this took to sink and set. It was constantly rubbing off everywhere it seemed! And although I did like using it as a base, it would of course make anything I put on top rub off much more easily as well and make my makeup look very much more makeup like, if that makes sense. Heh. I've moved on from this.
