I was always reaching out for foundations and then I realized that it would break me out and didn't look quite natural. So I decided to switch to a tinted moisturizer. Yuck! I have dry skin but this made me look like a grease ball, I can't imagine women with oily skin using this at all! It just sits on your skin and gives you white heads too.

I've been using this product for years and love it. It slides on, remains transparent and works well under powder which you need with this because of the SPF. It works well with my skin type and tone and I never break out or have allergic reactions. I have read the other reviews about this product and understand that it may not be for everyone. I don't mind the price ( $32.00) because I only use it in summer and one tube lasts all year. This works for me. I like it a lot. I always have a tube.

I've been using the You Rebel product for about 4 years. I used to use the You Rebel in the red tube, but once this one came out I started to blend both to match my skin tone. I have been on roccatane and even though my skin is pretty sensitive, with this it is fine. It gives me good enough coverage and a really nice glow. I wish they would make a medium colour, as my skin is olive in the summer I have to blend both to get the colour I want. I rate this product pretty high despite the reviews I really like this product and it works well for me.

I have gone through a couple tubes of this already, which for me...means LOVE. I don't repurchase anything unless I cannot live without it, and this product falls into that category.
I don't use this everyday...more like once every 2 weeks, if that. I found that this is too expensive to be using everyday, and it gets too oily for everyday use anyway.
This is perfect for more special occasions when you need a dewy look, but still a bit more coverage than usual.
It's great that is has SPF 15, all of us ladies need that no matter what the season! The tint is perfect to be worn alone with a bit of concealer if needed, on a hot summer day.
It doesn't melt off my face, it stays perfect all day without breaking me out afterwords.
When the tube is coming to an end though, it is a real pain to get it out of the tube...other than that though, I would say definitely check this out.
Extreme oily skin: might want to watch out.

Really like this stuff. I tried You Rebel in the past (the original version) and it was orangey & greasy. Back then my skin was combo-oily, but fast forward several years later and my skin is now normal-combo. I think depending on your skintype, you'll either like this or won't. I wouldn't recommend this to oily skinned gals at all. You will probably resemble an oil-slick after a few minutes, like I used to back when my skin was oily. This is definately more for dry-normal skinned ladies.
The colour is a much better match for me now. Like I said before, the original looked rather orange on my NC30 yellow undertoned skin. This is lighter and more yellow in colour, so it's a great fit for me. It actually blends right with my skintone.
I hate the packaging. I remember the first time I owned it, my tube split in half after a few months! It gets battered very easily, and the lettering seems to flake off after a while. However, you can get every last drop out so I guess there is a positive side to it.
The texture of this is a bit thick, but not at all difficult to spread. I don't recommend using a thick or heavy moisturizer before applying this. I use an oil-free light weight moisturizer beforehand. This product is very moisturizing. It leaves a dewy look on my skin, slightly glowy. It looks very natural, not like I'm caked in makeup or anything. The smell is a little off putting, but nothing I can't handle.
Please do NOT put this on your eye area. It even states on the packaging not to, so I don't see why people complain when they get irritation. I've accidently got this in my eye on 3 occasions, and it STINGS. I've seen people say "why would I put this on my face if it causes such irritation to my eyes?!" but I don't think they understand that this tinted moisturizer contains a CHEMICAL sunscreen. Chemical sunscreens are notorious for irritating eyes...not because they're bad, but because they're just not suitable for the overly-sensitive eye area. So please, make sure you don't get this product in your eyes!
During spring/winter I don't set this with powder. During summer, I have to use powder to set though, otherwise it turns greasy. Or I use a oil-control primer underneath and no powder...either way works well. I actually prefer just using the primer because when you set this with powder it takes away some of the glow this TM gives.
In terms of coverage, it's good enough for me. I don't have acne or any serious blemishes, but I do have some small whiteheads here and there. This covers any reddness well, and as for my blemishes, it's gives them light coverage. Lasts all day on my skin and doesn't irritate or break me out (I have very breakout prone skin so this is definately a good thing!)
It's very pricey at over £20, but I would definately repurchase.

I've been experimenting with TMs and have covered most of the high-end products. This is the first one that reacted to my sensitive skin (like an allergic reaction). I use (or have used) Stila, Bobbi Brown, Lancome and Laura Mercier and I've never had an allergic reaction. In one day this stuff had my face burning and by the end of the day the scent of the product had me kind of nauseous. Won't ever buy!

I have a lot of Benefit products and some are great, but this is among the worst, in my opinion. It just doesn't blend in well or absorb into the skin so it ends up looking streaky and I have to go over it with powder to blend it. For a somewhat expensive product, I really don't think it delivers at all. On the plus side though, the smell is nice and the packaging is great. I haven't tried any other tinted moisturizers, but there have to be better ones out there, I imagine. I definitely don't plan to repurchase.

I just tried this product as I got it as a sample from Sephora. I decided to try it and I LOVE it! I have never tried tinted moisturizer before as I usually will just dot on some foundation around t zone on days not looking so hot. Usually, I do not wear foundation though, just powder. However, I will be using this product EVERYDAY now!
The beautiful neutral color looks great on my olive skin and brightens up my face instantly. I took one lippie off because I wish it had a little more luminescent or illuminating quality but it does have some which I like, just a little more would really pop!
I also love the fact it has spf 15. I don't know if that is enough to really protect my skin everyday but it is better than nothing. So far, does not break me out and surprisingly is not greasy or oily. Just dewy and wonderful.
I just ordered some on ebay for $19. I use the De Lite color. I hear the original red tube is awful and too dark.
I def recommend for those who have pretty good skin already, don't need much coverage, but just want a little bit to even skin tone and brighten up face.
After using this product for 2 weeks I now do not like it. It has hardly any coverage and is a big NO NO for oily skin because it pretty much slicks on like grease. I thought it was nice at first but now am putting it up for swap. Maybe better for dry skin. : \

I'm SO returning this.
It's very greasy, & just adds to the oil that's already on my face. It doesn't provide any coverage, and it feels very thick on my skin. The color is too yellow for my skin, and I already have yellow undertones.
I tried this two times, and I just hate it. It's not even worth it. I'm returning this tomorrow.

From the previous reviews, it seems people don't like this product much because it doesn't provide enough coverage. For me, I like it for that very reason. I like my makeup to be more subtle and natural-looking. I use this more in the winter time as it only has SPF15. I knocked one lippie for it's expensive price.
I have this in the REGULAR red tube, not LITE.

Received a sample of this product and was excited to try it because I like Benefit cosmetics, but this was just not for me. The scent it overwhelming. Had to wash it off my face right away. Not possible for anyone with sensitive skin to use this product.

I realized with this that tinted moisturizers don't give me enough coverage. So if you have perfect skin and just want to waste a few minutes of your day to put on makeup you don't need, spend your $28 on this. I'm envious of people who can put this on and not feel naked. It's also heavily scented which can turn some people off but I think it smells good. It did irritate the skin on my eyes but I wouldn't put it there anyways because I have oily lids already and this shifts around on my face throughout the day so if I put this on my eyes my shadow, liner, and mascara would drip down. So I guess my skin is not good enough for this and my approach to makeup is not to look like a Picasso with everything moving around on my face (and onto my sunglasses, phone, etc.) so I wished that I could have saved my money because my $54 Chanel foundation makes me so much happier.

Despite some of the unhappy reviews below, I do find beneFit tinted moisturizer to be pretty good.
I don't find it as thick as others mentioned and it provides much more coverage compared to others I tried.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium, Cool Hair: Brown, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Brown
I have to agree with everyone else here. YES, It DOES stings when it comes in contact near your eyes. I have to take off mine as soon as I put it on because it's like burning the skin area around your eyes. Good thing I only got a sample, not the full sized product.

This product has sat in my drawer for nearly a year, and i have barely touched it. Although all of benefits packaging is amazing, when I first got this the tinted moisturizer, it came out really thick and pasty like, and the UV part doesnt really work on my behalf. I would consider seriously if you would want to buy this product.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Sensitive, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
If this product had a better sunscreen, it might become a permanent staple for me. Unfortunately it does not provide sufficient UV protection. It's a shame. Otherwise it's a great balance between coverage, glow, and a matte finish.

I really like this product. I love tha package, it is easy to get out and easy to keep clean. I have tried other TM before and most of them either don't provide any coverage, or provide too much coverage and are hard to match to my skin tone. This product was a great surprise. It really evens out my skin tone (it can be on the red side), makes my skin look and feel soft, and gives m skin a healthy glow, without looking like I am wearing anything. Like most Benefit products, a little goes a long way. It has SPF 15 which is great. I don't care for the smell so much, but the product more then makes up for that. I top it off with a little Bluff Dust and leave the house with a fresh, even, natural looking face.

I really like this Moisturizer. I went to the benefit counter to try their Dear John, but the AS told me it is a bit heavy and if I don't have dry skin it would be too much, since I don't have dry skin at all (I have pretty normal skin) she suggested this to me and then asked me to try it out while I was there. I was surprised that I actually like it because I have been very skeptical of tinted moisturizers because of how fair my skin is. You Rebel blended really well on my skin and moisturized it just the right amount, not too heavy and not too light. I found I can just put this on, then a little concealer and set it all with a powder and I have perfect coverage all day. Very Very happy with my purchase :)

I absolutely hate this product!! I got as a sample for buying another benefit product and I was really hoping for something great. But no way! This stuff is greasy and made me break out A LOT! Not just in one place EVERYWHERE on my cheeks my chin my forehead! I will never buy this product ever ever ever ever ever!

I got a sample of this when I purchased the Benefit's One Hot Minute.I was pretty excited about trying this out because I heard quite a lot of people saying good things about it and purely because I love Benefit products. It's a fine product; sheer coverage, light scent, SPF 15, and moisturizing. But I found that it was too light for me. It also stung my eyes and it would water like crazy if I applied the product too close it. And maybe it's just the sample I got, but it kinda separated. I saw oily spots in the product (I opened the sample package and transferred it into a small jar for convenience) and water spots as well.
None the less, it's a decent product. I would like to try the original You Rebel next time because it's catered to darker skintones.
