            I have been looking for a product that could be both a sunscreen and a foundation. I wanted something that would work with my active outdoor life and transition into the office during the week. This is great. The coverage is just perfect. It blends well and stays on all day. I really do not like heavy foundations.

                  I have used lots of BB's and CC's and most of them are pretty good, but I like this one a little more than the others for coverage and ingredients. The color is good and the coverage is good.

                  This is the one thing I can not go without! This is my 2nd tube and it lasts 3+ months. I use it very lightly over my face, mostly around eyes and blemishes, but rub in all over. Even if I don't wear makeup that day, I at least use this product and lipstick, also using the lipstick as a blush, curl my eyelashes and I'm good to go! This is something that I will definitely use forever!!! It brings a more youthful look and glow and being 50, it is sooooo worth it!

                  I had to move to this product because dermalogica really messed up their tinted moisturizer. Both products are spf 20 but both have a very orange tint and are very thick and heavy which, for me, causes breakouts. I like this product best but wish both manufacturers would try to get the tint a bit more neutral and not so heavy on an "orange" tint.
