I really love this product! I was a little intimidated at first because it is a foundation and I've only ever used BB creams and tinted moisturizers. It is a little heavy, but if you know how to apply it, it gives your skin a really flawless look, and it covers up almost everything. When I bought this I was planning on getting the Maybelline BB cream which I'd used before and loved, but I saw this and thought, why not. And I was right!! I LOVE this stuff!!

When I bought this it was mainly for experimentation. I've never really been interested in creme or liquid foundation. I've used the Dream Nude Airfoam Foundation, which I thought was good. I went to Walmart to get the Dream Smooth Mousse after looking at reviews. As soon as I got home I put it on. I was amazed. I love it! I tried using a sponge to put it on, but I didn't like that. I now use a brush. It goes on so smooth and feels amazing. I will definitely buy this again no question!!!
update: after a couple weeks of using this with a firm brush, my normal primer and blush and all the works, I found I was breaking out more. I switched to the dream nude liquid foundation (mainly because I was getting tanner and I had it in a darker color already) and withing 2 days I noticed I was not breaking out nearly as much.. I have slightly oily skin, mainly in my T zone, and that's exactly where I was breaking out. Just FYI

What can I say except GREAT?
It is the first foundation which makes me belive my choice is totally correct.
I am Asian.I have used TFS BB cream and another liquid foundation of Shimmer(Actually I don't know this brand, and this product is given to me from one of my relatives.)
All of them are foundation but they varie in texture, negative effect and many other things.
I know it from the net that BB cream does more harm to skin when compared with other foundations. When removing the make-up, I would always find some one or two break-outs.SUCKS.
So I prefer some foundations. Liquid foundations are also does harm to acne-prone and sensitive skin, so not a best choice.
Since winter, I have used this smooth mousse. BRILLIANT...
My skin is not so dry as before.After removing the make-up, no break-outs.haha~~
My skin is so sensitive so I don't dare to change product so quickly. Therefore, my rational choice is BUY IT AGAIN..~~

I love this foundation. My skin is very dry at times (especially winter) and so the moisturizing benefit of this is great. Although, my dryest patches (cheeks especially) where my skin is flaky and dry, this seems to not do the best job of really moisturizing it, but makes it appear worse. So I have to pile moisturizer on anyways. BUT this is a very creamy smooth moussey foundation and doesn't produce much shine.
I can wear this alone with no powder on top. I will be trying the smooth matte mousse next since it has anti-shine, and with me piling on moisturizer, I have a lot of shine.
The packaging is ok. I love the sponge it comes with, it makes it so easy to quickly apply-and-go.

I'm not sure if I would buy this product again. I love the consistency and the buildable coverage. So far, it hasn't irritated my skin which is a huge plus but the color selection sucks. I have very light skin so I grabbed the lightest shade that my local Target carried which was Classic Ivory Light 2. It is almost a little too dark for me which is really a bummer. I'm mostly using it as an eyeshadow concealer and maybe a little bit as a contouring cream. I looked on the website and saw that they have this foundation in one shade lighter, Porcelain Ivory Light 1 which would probably would have been perfect for me :(
If I find this in the shade for my skin tone than I will definitely repurchase, otherwise...
UPDATE May 21, 2013:
I cannot believe this has turned out to be my favorite foundation! I have almost used up the container and I will def repurchase. It's creamy, super blendable and very buildable. I think you need to play around with this particular foundation texture before figuring out how it works with your skin. I found that I cannot use a primer and that it does not take a lot of product to even out my skin. I've also found that this works way better at concealing blemishes than my concealers. And a huge plus is that this has NEVER broken my very sensitive skin out. I can fully rely on this foundation to not irritate or cause zits at all. I use it after heavy moisturizer and finish with a dusting of my Neutrogena pressed mineral powder. This will def be my go to foundation for as long as they keep making it!

Light to medium coverage, hydrating - great winter foundation - super fast application, poor colour range, must be settled with a little powder otherwise will disappear quickly. A good DS product for its price (a little goes a long way) and handyness!

Best foundation I have ever tried.
Amazing coverage, easy to blend for a natural look or build up on spots and under eye bags. Leaves the skin looking clear and luminous but not too shiny. Also coverage lasts a very long time, have fallen asleep still wearing this on ocassion and still wake up with my skin looking much better than usual and a fairly decent amount still on.
The texture is also nice and creamy and easy to apply using a sponge.
'Natural beige' is the perfect colour for my fake tanned skin with cool undertones which has been complicated for me to find in the past.
I buy this on ebay for $10(AU) since I havent been able to find it in stores here in Australia but dont mind since it is an absolute bargain. Will continue to purchase this again and again as no other foundation has left me so satisfied with the results.
However, would likely not suggest this for dry skin as I get dry patches in winter around my mouth and jaw and it generally tends to cake up noticeably but still not too extreme. But all other skin types must try this!

I was kind of bummed out by this at first- it looked weird and slightly oxidized after a little while, caked up slightly around the eyebrows, kind of shiny. And THEN! Instead of wearing it with my usual sunscreen/moisturizer, I went out at night and threw it on over my regular Cetaphil (with no SPF) and WOAH. So much better. Something in the makeup must have been reacting weird with the sunscreen because it's sooo much better over non-sunscreen moisturizer. It looks more even and matte. I also love that I can throw it in my bag for quick touch-ups, which I can't do with any of my other foundations (too bulky/hassle to deal with). I think this might not work for daytime wear since I usually wear SPF, but at night when I don't bother with sunscreen, this stuff is perfect!
UPDATE: Broke me out So. Bad. Must be the sponge :( I don't really want to keep using it because the handy sponge was part of the allure for me. Oh well.

Absolutely love this foundation. It is a very wearable formula, providing light to medium coverage. I like to use the included foam applicator. I have this is porcelain which is the perfect shade for my very pale, cool toned skin. Looks very natural and does not cause my combination skin to breakout.My nose and cheek area needs a light touch up mid-day. I think it works best with a primer ( I use Hourglass mineral veil spf 15 primer).

This foundation gives me nice light/medium natural-looking coverage and is very 'wearable' on a daily basis. Easy to apply (Comes with its own sponge but I use my F80 brush from Sigma) Feels nice on my skin and evens out my tone. Needs re-touching around my nose and chin say every 3 hours or so. A good foundation to pop in your handbag.
