I love this powder! I've never used a mineral finishing powder before but I was looking for a translucent powder with just a little bit of color so when I saw this I had to try it. The price was a little steep for me but I got it anyway in the translucent medium because a co worker of mine uses it as well and she said she liked it. When I applied it for the first time using the brush that comes attached I hated it! I thought the brush was what made the powder feel wet and cool so I tried using the MAC powder brush I have and the powder still felt cool and wet but it applied to my skin great! I ended up putting the flat sticky brush away and just using the MAC brush. All I can say now is I love this powder, I love the coverage! Yes, this is a definite rebuy!
Although I just bought this last night and am using it for the first time today I LOVE IT!!! I took my teenage step-daughter with me to the drug store and she helped me pick out a color that best matched my skin tone in the bottle... I went home kind of hesitant because it looked really light compared to what I've been using but when I tried it this morning it was a perfect match for my somewhat light to med. toned skin. I have a few scars from old blemishes since I tend to break out a lot and this product covered them really well and didn't feel cakey AT ALL!! I will def be using all of this and buying more!

I got this as a gift for my birthday (in Sept) and sprayed it on me but didn't really like the smell of it so I put it to the back of my dresser and only used it a few times when I was going to be out in an open area since it has a strong smell but once spring/summer came around I started to use it a little more and I love it. It's more of a warm weather fragrance since it has more of a floral, ocean, or woodsy scent to it. LOVE IT FOR SUMMER!!!
I tried the original formula a few years ago. It worked GREAT for a while after a brief (and horrible) breakout period. It did irritate my skin for a while but all I had to do was drop down to using it twice a day instead of the three times suggested. Then after a few months it just stopped working, so I stopped using it. Then I heard about the “new, improved, and gentler” formula so I decided to give it a try…. Biggest mistake I’ve made! The ad said it was only $20 so I thought what the heck… it’s only $20 and if I don’t like it I just won’t use it. Well, I get the bill for it and it showed I had to pay payments that added up to almost $90! I ended up giving it away and still having to pay that amount. I WILL NEVER RECOMMEND THIS TO ANYONE!
