I like this foundation, for the most part. And for the cold weather months.
I like it because it is unfragranced (there is a bit of a natural smell to it, but it's faint, and it's the same smell that's in Burt's Bees BB cream -- kind of a curious natural scent, but I find it mild and unnoticeable upon application), and it doesn't have silicones in it (I don't think so, at least), and there are no chemical sunscreens in here (no physical ones either, for that matter). It has some nice ingredients (meadowfoam oil, honey) and it feels nice.
Applying it, it's like putting on a lotion. Sort of. It doesn't quite soak in like a lotion, but it doesn't just sit there like a foundation either. On me it's more like a jacked-up BB cream. Coverage is decent and it's easy to blend. It also seems easy to slip off, but fortunately, touch-ups are easy to manage. It doesn't look or feel cakey on my skin, which is great. It also doesn't settle in lines or accentuate my pores. For those reasons I really like it. It also seems to add a touch of glow, too.
One thing that bugs me is deciding on a color. The lightest colors almost look exactly the same and it was hard to find a neutral shade. I eventually settled on Classic Ivory (1016) because it seemed the closest match to the L'Oreal True Match foundation I often use (N2). It seems to match fairly well. Some kind of system where Burt's Bees would readily identify if the colors are cool, neutral or warm would be great, however. I know their website has a shade finder, but it's one of those sliding scale ones that I'm not wild about, because it hinges on how accurate your monitor is.
But it feels good, blends well, and gives a natural look, so those are good points. This makes a good day-to-day foundation, but I wouldn't wear it to the gym or on a hot day because I'd fear sweating it off in no time flat. But for the winter when my skin is drier, sure, especially when it's on sale or I have a coupon, because I know it'll give me coverage and some moisture and it's around half the price of the Bare Minerals tinted moisturizer I really love -- just not every day is a $30 product kind of day.
One final updated note:
One thing I'm really loving is that as I started using this after a bad breakout and bad healing (don't pick ...), and using this has provided some nice coverage (it's not full coverage on blotchy skin, however), and it's been pleasantly soothing. My skin can freak out easily from artificial fragrances and chemical sunscreens, and when it's flared up silicones can irritate it, too, so this has provided some nice relief during a healing stage in that I get coverage and it almost feels like it's helping the healing. That could be psychological, however, in that I'm just happy that it's not irritating me and it's providing some much-wanted coverage.
I also have had good luck blending it with my Cetaphil Redness Relieving moisturizer. While that one is touted as a neutral, and it seems pretty much the case, it's a touch dark for me, but it blends fabulously with the Burt's Bees foundation. I mix the two together and the Burt's Bees adds more coverage to the Cetaphil and makes a better match for my complexion, and the Cetaphil makes the Burt's Bees apply more like a moisturizer or BB cream on my face, and I get a bit of extra sun protection. It's not something most people would find helpful, but I always enjoy if I can blend two products together and make something I like into something I love.
