Loved the smell but didn't love the feel. This does not soak into your skin and has an oily slick feeling. Returned it without a hassle.

Be careful when you click so you don't waste the product. On new acne it can have a flaky look .. but that's ok since it's doing it's job. I find using this is better than using acne treatment and then using a concealer over it. Currently I'm using it in light and need to up the tint to match my tan. I'm crossing my fingers that this stays on the shelves for awhile.

When I first used this product I noticed that my skin tingled a little bit, especially if it was too close to the under side of my eye. Over time I'm not noticing this anymore. Light color was perfect for my spring to summer skin color. Now that we're into summer I'm mixing medium with l/m. It is difficult to blend more than one shade. One day my cheek was light and my forehead was a little orangish. This doesn't accentuate wrinkles and I believe it masks them a little bit. I look younger with this foundation then my MAC studio tech powder. I have oily skin and I do end up blotting by noon but I have to do this no matter what foundation/tinted moisturizer I'm using. I also like the tube of blush that came with this package. IT doesn't cover pimples or acne scars well. I use Neutrogena's acne treated cover up and I'm good to go!

I've been using this product once to twice a day for the past two months with no improvement of my wrinkles. I have light laugh lines and the start of forehead wrinkles; there wasn't much to improve on to begin with. Thought this would stop aging in it's tracks, but I think they've only gotten worse.
Bronzed rosy cheeks. Check. Bronzed flushed cheeks. Check. Added definition. Check. I use this every day and for every look. The only drawback is slight... by mid afternoon it needs a touch up. I love this stuff!

I used this 2x daily for 8 weeks with no improvement in any wrinkles, firmness or occurrence of dark circles.
It does absolutely nothing to control oil and causes break outs. Thank god I only bought the travel size ($15).
I noticed my friend had extremely clear skin, and while over at her house I spotted these on her vanity. At first I was a little disappointed, I had a terrible breakout the first 7-10 days of using these. 2 months later I have had maybe one or two pimples during my period. I credit these pads to keeping my skin clear. ***Update*** I've been using these since January and I've noticed they're not working as well as they used to. I don't know if this is due to my skin maybe acclimating to the product or the change of seasons......
I have been coming back and forth to this product for at least the past three years. During the summer when I need a little less coverage, this stuff is perfect. If my tan isn't up to snuff for the med-dark, I mix it with the light-med to create my own shade. I use press powder but if I've been active or outside all day I tend to look oily and sweaty. Maybe this is due to my oily skin type, maybe on part to heat and activity. I've never suffered a sunburn while using this.
