I bought this on a whim because it was on sale at Shopper's Drugmart. Here is my review after using it for about a week: Texture / Feel: Creamy, slightly greasy feel that does not absorb into skin - I can definitely 'feel' it on my face. My face felt a little dry and itchy after application. Appearance After Application: 'Caitlin' which is described as 'lightest beige' on the packaging is a medium and slightly too orange-y pink for my NC30 complexion. Coverage is light but sits on top of your skin and does go on smoothly. It has a tendency to settle into lines and emphasize dry skin or uneven texture. Moisturizing / Skin Improving Properties: Poor - I wouldn't use this as a primary moisturizer (I have combo skin). I definitely need to prep my skin with moisturizer beforehand. In addition, this clogged my pores and caused me to break out every time I used it. SPF/PA: No sun protection is explicitly stated on the tube, however the ingredients do contain sunscreens: Octinoxate (7.5%), Octisalate (5%), Oxybenzone (3%), Avobenzone (3%). Scent: Strong unpleasant scent that is similar to plasticine. The scent fades a little after application, but does not go away. Packaging: The tube is easy to use, sanitary, and convenient. Other: Looking closely at the ingredients, this also contains many types of parabens: methylparaben, propylparaben, ethylpareben, butylparaben, isobutylparaben which are endocrine distrupterscan and can be irritants to sensitive skin. Methylparaben applied on skin can reacts UVB causing increased skin aging and DNA damage :S Final Verdict: I do not like this product and will not buy again because of the poor performance as a tinted moisturizer as well as the irritation I experienced.
