I really enjoy this as foundation. It is ever-so-slightly ashy for my NC15 skin so I put yellow-ish powder over it (Maybelline loose powder). I use the light tint. Working this product in does take a while, as you have to first spread the tint, and then spread the zinc, which takes a bit more rubbing. But that process is worth it to me, as this stuff gives my skin an amazing glow and seriously makes me look more well-rested and younger. It also keeps me matte ALL day, even in the summer when I work outside. This product is very heavy and mask-like, but I like this as I have a lot of redness and acne scars to cover. Its thickness means you must use an oil cleanser followed by another cleanser to remove it. There is a slightly sweet, natural smell that dissipates after application. I personally don't mind the scent; it's synthetic scents that bother me. Pros: $48 for 2 oz and full of amazing organic ingredients, so you get a lot for the money, and awesome pump applicator and elegant packaging. I just love how this makes my skin looks, so despite some cons, I will keep using this. Note: They have recently changed the name to "Everyday Coverage" and updated the ingredients list from the one I have, so I'm not sure if the new version is as nice.

I really disliked this product. It looked greasy on my face and also felt heavy. It didn't blend in well so there were obvious streaks on my skin. It broke me out immediately and it took me months to get back to clear skin. The smell is also kind of gross.
I give them props for the packaging, though. The pump is easy to use and it doesn't get messy.
However, definitely not worth the price and I would not recommend.

I have used this for a month or so now. I dislike the feeling of this on my skin. It's not spreadable hence i see obvious streaks on my face, highlights my enlarged pores and seems to mask my skin - not comfortable at all. I look white-ish & greasy after application. It didnt breakme out & i'm unsure about the protection because i use so little each time to prevent the uncomfortable feeling. Definitely wont repurchase.

I've tried every which way to wear this TM, but I just can't get it to work for me. I've used various moisturizers/oils under it and also mixed with it. I've tried aloe vera gel and hyaluronic acid under it, but both those products make the product pill. My skin is surface dry, so I must use something under it since the product is far from moisturizing.

This TM is very drying and settles horizontally in the fine lines under my eyes and in the lines next to my mouth down to my chin. I wipe these areas with my finger and 5 minutes later the settling is back and obvious. It is aging on me.

I'm fair with warm undertones, and the Light Tint was a good color match. I also liked the light coverage and felt it was somewhat buildable. But......still looking for that perfect tinted moisturizer without silicones and chemicals.

I've been a product junkie all of my life... but when my skin started freaking out, I went natural figuring if I could put it IN my body, I could put it ON my body. This moisturizer without a doubt has done wonders for my skin, skintone and I feel good about using it.

The other review posted here really says everything about this product, so all I can add is my personal opinion.

Although this product did not break me out and it has a great PPD, packaging, and it's organic, it just looks and feels like foundation to me, and since I don't wear foundation, I don't like it.

The only way IŽve been able to wear this is mixed with my Keys Solar RX since that seems to dilute the MU look and feel to me. I gave it a 4 since it meets almost everything on my ss wish list. If you donŽt mind the look and feel of MU, youŽll probably love it.

If it seems to heavy, try the Everyday Sheer with 20SPF; I just got the sample, and it seems like a better match for me. I'll use the sample and update.

This is an amazing product considering that it's all-natural/organic. It has no bad ingredients, according to (the Environmental Working Group). The only ingredient I'm not crazy about is the emu oil simply because I feel bad for the poor emu. But it is quite similar to Dr. Jart's spf 45 PA+++ BB, except that it is not as moisturizing and doesn't contain any parabens.
It does need to be rubbed in (at first I was shocked by how streaky it was--but don't give up, just rub it in). It is definitely not as cosmetically elegant as I wish it were, but with such a high zinc percentage, that's to be expected.
It does *almost* everything (except moisturize enough) that it claims to on the company's website (shocking, actually). Here is what they claim:
All skin types.
Kids Safe Screen
Moisturizing Face Screen, SPF 30 - Light Tint

Protects against the complete UVA/UVB spectrum, naturally, safely and effectively.
Higher concentration of zinc oxide makes this ideal for heavier sun exposure.
Provides moisturizing and healing properties with red raspberry seed oil, sea buckthorn oil, and immortelle
Includes antioxidants such as green tea and vitamin e for anti-aging support
Contains non-micronized zinc oxide, a physical sun block that reflects UV rays without releasing wrinkle and cancer-causing free radicals
Absorbs into the skin leaving a lovely matte finish
No harmful chemicals, nanoparticles, parabens, fillers, waxes or fragrances.
Active Ingredient: 20% non-nano zinc oxide
No harmful chemicals, nanoparticles, parabens, fillers, waxes or fragrances.

Active Ingredient: 20% non-nano zinc oxide

**Not a vegan product

I was initially quite hesitant to wear this on my acne-prone face, but the wonderful customer-service convinced me that it would not break me out. I have worn this ss for over a week, and it is indeed true--it has not caused me to break out! I remove it with Boscia cleansing oil (although unfortunately, it does come off when I blow my nose, so it might come off with regular soap, although it's oil-based, so I suggest removing it with an oil-based cleanser). I do wish it had greater staying power.
It does actually dry to a dewy yet matte-to-the-touch finish, so I don't need to apply any powder, although you can definitely tell I'm wearing "makeup". It has simplified my routine. I'm not sure this would hold up to exercise/sweating as well as Melashade, so when I plan on exercising, I wear Melashade spf 30 or Tarte spf 20 BB.
It is a physical ss that does not really moisturize, so it does emphasize flakies, but it has such wonderful ingredients that I plan on using it on days when I will be hiking/out in nature, not socializing ;-). Thank you, MVO!
