My favorite choice for foundation. I have dry skin and this tinted moisturizer provides just the right amount of coverage. With concealer, it's perfect. Needs to be set with powder however as it can be a bit shiny.

EDIT: Still the best I've come across since Smashbox TM (discont'd)) - but realize that I have to change my cleanser. Does clog my pores and a glycolic cleanser is a must for me when using TheBalm TM. My usual mild Effaclar was not cleaning deep enough. Removing HG status and down to 4 lippies from the original 5.----I (NC20/25, sensitive and reactive skin, fine lines, acne scars, minor sun damage, breakout prone, easily clogged pores) had been using Smashbox Tinted Moisturizer. But it was discontinued. Tried many other TMs, among them Laura Mercier, Tarte, Nars and Smashbox BB cream which was supposed to kinda replace the Smashbox TM. Just didn't work for various reasons like too thick, broke me out, too much shimmer, no coverage, looked oily or fake.Read some good reviews for TheBalm TM (had never heard about this brand) and then found it at Rexall. Bought "Light".This stuff is fantastic! I want light coverage with some moisturizing and this does it beautifully. At my age, less is more (regarding foundation) just looks so much better. TheBalm evens out my skin tone, minimizes the look of my pores and makes any old acne scars, sun spots, etc much less noticeable. I've tried using it over concealer, and that works too - but my skin seems happiest with as few products on it as possible. It is buildable, but I think it looks best when applied fairly lightly.Some peeps have had oxidization - yes, it does darken just a bit for me. If your skin is very oily, this might not work for you. Or if you are very dry, you might need a light moisturizer under this. And it has no shimmer - the finish is a healthy subtle glow. I'd recommend this as a "must try" if you want a my-skin-but-better natural look; especially if you have fine lines and/or reactive skin.HG Status!

I really love this Tinted moisturizer. it blends seamlessly into my skin and if I set it with a powder it lasts all day. I was surprised that it covers any redness I have as well as covers up small blemishes.
My only problem is that the shade range where I live is Light/Medium and Medium/Dark. I have porcelain skin, which the light/medium shade is just a little too dark for me. For the summertime it's great and I definitely recommend to anyone wanting to try it :)

Love this. Have tried multiple tinted moisturizers and this is the only one I would ever rebuy. I have combination, congested pain in the butt pale/pink skin and buy this in light. It covers well enough (especially since you can just slap it on in the morning), stays on, does not oxidize, does not have an odor and doesn't get too shiny (I do put a powder over this). Admittedly I do get a bit shiny by the end of the day, but I use this over another moisturizer, so that's probably my own fault. It does not break me out, sting or cause any skin issues. It really acts exactly as a tinted moisturizer should. The only annoying thing is that it does gunk up at the hole where it comes out, so I do use a q-tip to remove the gunk, but this is a minor issue and doesn't impact the quality of the product. Would definitely recommend and would repurchase.

I did not like this product much. I found it had a weird texture and left my skin feeling sticky all day.

After using several different foundations and powders my whole life, I recently decided that I wanted to find something more natural-looking. I spent about three months researching different options, reading reviews, and buying different products. I tried about 5 different options, including Guerlain BB cream (didn't look natural), Clarins CC cream (loved it but the lightest was too dark), Laura Mercier TM (too shiny) and NYX TM (not natural). I had seen the high reviews for this TM but had never seen it at Sephora or Shoppers so I tried the others first. After none of them worked for me I FINALLY decided to look more into it and discovered that you can buy it at Rexall. And let me tell you, I so wish I had tried this one first!!! It's creamy, medium but very natural coverage and has pretty great staying power. Since I'm incredibly pale I tried the "Lighter than Light" shade first and it was surprisingly a little too light for me. I liked the formula though so I bought the "Light" and IT IS PERFECT. So after spending about $300 I have finally found the perfect fit for me, and I hope this helps any others that are searching for a natural-looking product with no shine.

Thebalm tinted moisturiser is my HG product.I have tried various tinted moisturiser/bb creams and they either are too orange or cling to my dry patches. I have pale & dry/combination skin and the shade Lighter Than Light is an absolute perfect match for my skintone, it doesn't look grey, too pink or too yellow. The product goes on very smoothly, almost with a velvet feel. I either use my hands or the Real Techniques buffing brush to apply it. It doesn't cling to dry patches or break my skin out. It has excellent coverage for a tinted moisturiser and you can build it up without it getting cakey. It gives the 'my skin but better' look and a nice healthy glow to the skin. I will say that if you have scarring, acne or redness, this will not cover that as it is only a tinted moisturiser.It lasts around 6 hours and if I add a little powder, it can last up to 8. The product is quite expensive but I am happy to pay for it as you get a good sized tube and the actual product is fantastic.Overall, an absolute must have for anyone looking for a product that gives natural coverage, adds a healthy glow to the skin and is very pale. I highly recommend the shade 'Lighter Than Light' I most definitely will be re purchasing!

I want to try this again. Originally bought after dark, and I looked dirty!!! For reference I'm NC45 and I'm going to buy either dark or medium dark?? If they have that? But it stays all day just not my color.

This is the best product I've found for natural looking skin. I just lightly stipple it on my face with a stipple brush to even out some redness. My skin still shines through but looks better. It can also be applied heavier for more coverage, but that's not why I bought this. The spf is an added bonus and this TM does not irritate my sensitive skin. It doesn't settle into pores or fine lines or even look detectable on skin. Love this stuff and will repurchase when I run out.

I have now tried five BB creams / tinted moisturisers from Holika Holika, Jouer, La Roche-Posay, Clinique and theBalm. I have been looking for something very sheer to apply either alone or over moisturiser to give a hint of warmth to my ivory complexion. I also suffer from "the shinies" over the course of the day and need something that won't look / feel greasy.When you apply this, it looks grey and putty-like but blends easily (you can use your fingers!) and seamlessly. It doesn't cake, dry out my skin or settle into fine lines. This TM interacts well with concealer, powder and other products. It seems to control shine to some extent and the fact it has SPF is a nice bonus (I am moving to Australia where it's important to use sun protection all year round.) The tube is a decent size, so it makes up for the price.This is my new go-to product, it has left my other BBs / TMs in the dust and piqued my curiosity to try more from this brand!
