I am someone who breaks out easily. Not all over, but a big pimple here and there with maybe a couple little ones here and there. Most cleansers dry out my skin and they don't seem like they takes them away. This one actually takes my break outs away in a couple days. I love the texture of this cleanser. It doesn't feel foamy..just lotiony and milky on my hands. It does foam a little bit, once you really work it into your skin. It's really thick. Smells amazing. I'm so happy I found this. I got it for 4.99 on sale..so I don't know how much it is full price, but I'll find out when this bottle is empty!

I am a big fan of tinted moisturizers. I never wear anything else, because I hate regular foundations. There is a fine line between this tinted moisturizer and a regular foundation. This one is really thick for a tinted moisturizer..not as thick as the smashbox BB cream, (Would hardly call that a tinted moisturizer..) but pretty thick compared to Mac. It's borderline. However, It's not sticky or waxy. You won't feel like you have a film on your skin and it doesn't smell funny. I have dry skin, so I can't speak for other skin types, but it works for me. It doesn't go on unevenly. I still use a moisturizer under this. My skin looks and feels so smooth. The color is amazing. I'm very pale..I wear porcelain. I get compliments all the time. I just love it. I wish it were a little less cost wise..at $43. $45 with tax. and the bottle it's in is a little annoying, but bearable. Also, I'm the type where I get little break outs fairly easily. I don't get break outs from this, but when your skin is in a mood, it doesn't matter what you use.

This is the greatest moisturizer I've ever used. I'm 20 years old and have been using this for a few years now. I've tried other moisturizers, but this one is the only one that does everything exactly the way I want. I keep coming back. I have some discoloration around my chin area..it's at least a shade darker, then my reg. This moisturizer completely evens out my skin tone. I can't find anything else that does it. It makes my skin so silky soft, unlike anything else. It brightens my skin..it doesn't make me break out. The only downside is that it costs $50. Though it's so thick, it lasts a good while..you don't need to use too too much. I probably use more then I should :P It helps my makeup go on better too.
