I've been using this on and off for years - thinking that some new fandangled (i.e. advertised) sunscreen would be as pleasing...but no...I always return like a prodigal daughter back to this. I like it b/c it's got a high spf but doesn't cake over or become too shiny and oilslick like...and most importantly doesn't make me break out. I mix a bit with my dermalogica moisturisor and find it does what I want it to do. My only gripes are that I go through about a tube a month (exp on student budget) and that it's a chemical based sunscreen - I've yet to be impressed by a physical block sunscreen.
Bought this on a whim when I was at the airport and was conned into getting the brun by the assistant and whilst it was certainly an improvement - I'm a NC35 with light brown/sparsish brows - from my years old Body shop pencil...I still have to use powder to help fill in and naturalise the reddish tinge. I think I would purchase b/c of quality (it comes with a pencil sharpener!) but would go up a shade and certainly try it out in daylight (as opposed to the surreal fluorescent lights). Quality product...unfortunately wrong colour for me..!

Great product - first tried it at a friend's place and then bought it myself. Nice frangrance - not overwhelming which definitely reminds me of summer. Not oily either. All round, a fantastic product!

This is a great product for anybody with dark circles - it's a miracle worker (especially after a night on the town)! But it doesn't come cheap (AU$78) hence me taking off 1 star. Since it's quite creamy, I only put it under my eyes cuz I have a separate oil-free concealer for spots. Highly recommended as a make-up essential - just like everybody else!
