Most Helpful Positive Review finally found my tinted moisturizer
1) The Natural Glow is the PERFECT color to match my skin. I usually have a hard time finding the right color in tinted moisturizers. For reference, I am a match to Bare Minerals fairly Light.
2) The coverage is light and doesn't look makeup-y. Great for everyday wear, but I've worn it out on the town too. Looks great in pictures!
3) Gives my skin a nice dewy look.
4) Product does not accentuate (or sit in) fine lines the way some products do. I can't wear mineral powders anymore for this reason.
5) I like that this product is a multi-tasker. Works as a tinted moisturizer and can help correct my skin over time.
6) It is natural and contains zinc oxide as the sunscreen. I am sensitive to chemicals (which make my face red) so this is perfect! I've been looking a long time for a natural tinted moisturizer with zinc oxide and the right color pigment.
1) The finish is a little oily looking, but well, that's because there's oil in it. I actually prefer this look, but I can see how it may not suit everyone. Adding finishing powder on top helps correct this.
2) The scent is ok, not intolerable. Smells kind of like woodsy black licorice. It's got the same scent (tho milder) as the Juice Beauty Tinted moisturizers. Other reviewers either love it or hate it. Note that the scent fades after a short while so don't let this deter you. I am usually sensitive to scents (i.e. headaches) but this product doesn't bother me.
3) The coverage may be too light for some. If you are looking to cover acne marks, this won't work. Your skin has to be clear to begin with, and this product just kicks it up a notch.
4) If your skin is very oily, you may not like this product because of the almost too dewy finish. My skin is combination but tends to get dry because I use Retin-A, so I wear a moisturizer under this, and it is just great. I don't break out at all with this product.
Most Helpful Critical Review Had higher expectations
I was excited to find a mineral SPF CC cream, and was hoping for this product to be a natural alternative to the It Cosmetics CC Cream. Pros: easy to apply, especially as the coverage is so light you don't have to worry about blending issues. Cons: Light to no coverage- I think the tint in this is more to prevent the white cast of Zinc oxide. It does not even out my skin tone. I have redness on my cheeks, which is not covered. I have sun spots on the tops of my cheekbones, which are not dimished at all. It does not alter the blue cast under my eyes. It remains shiny on the skin, which emphasizes my large pores on my cheeks near the nose. It emphasizes texture at the cheek-edge of my undereye skin. Even when set with Alima Pure Finishing Powder, the shine is only held at bay for about an hour. My normally "normal" T zone gets greasy after a couple hours with this product. It does not dry down on its own without setting powder, meaning I have to set ALL the face, not just the T zone. FYI, I have tried this product on its own, with Juice Beauty moisturizer underneath, and with just rose/glycerin water spritz underneath.
Many have mentioned the smell. In my opinion, it stinks, but I do not notice it after a few minutes on my face. To me, it smells like weed roots. I'm not talking about the semi-legal stuff from Colorado, I'm talking about pulling out weeds from my garden and having stinky root smell rubbed all over my face.
In my quest to swap out my daily beauty and body products for more natural options, this product was a fail for me. I have also tried the Pacifica BB cream, which has similar barely-there coverage, but at least the Pacifica one doesn't have the odor. I wish Ulta carried more quality natural products! I want to try Gressa, Kjaer Weis, RMS, and Jane Iredale. Why do Ulta and the other big beauty store not have any love for these premium brands?

Super lightweight, feels and looks like I'm wearing nothing but gives my skin a nice glow and evens skin tone. It's my go to
Deza from Florida
I absolutely love this Juice beauty product. It sucks they changed the shades but besides that, everything about this CC cream is amazing. Since using this I noticed my acne and inflammation drastically go down. Not to mention it also helps with dark spots! I have sensitive skin so I can't just slap sunscreen onto my face so a lady at ultas suggested this. Tbh I use it more for my acne and dark spots but having natural minerals for sunscreen is a PLUS! I read a lot of ppl say it's too oily and smells bad. In my opinion I have oily skin but this doesn't make me any more oily than I already am. It also smells like fruit loops and I love it. All the natural organic ingredients in this make me so happy. I actually feel safe putting this on my face. One of the best ingredients has to be the coconut oil because it is a natural antibiotic for acne causing bacteria. It is also a natural skin lightening oil for hyperpigmentation! No wonder it's been helping my dark spots and active acne! Ppl assume that oily skin doesn't need moisture or that it is already hydrated but that is false. I have an oily t zone w acne / dry cheeks with occasional rashes and my skin is sensitive but this helps calm down all of my skin issues. This is MAGIC for the skin on your face. Juice Beauty please don't ever stop making this CC cream! You have a loyal customer for life! Thank you so much 🥰❤️

Best CC CREAM
66 and still Oily skin from Avon, CT
I'm 66 yo. This is my every day moisturizer and skin evener . I had acne from 13-42yo. So I have naturally oily skin. This does not make me breakout like some products. And the smell is gorgeous- probably one of the major pluses. It's got that lovely aromatic aroma like YONKA products.
I would buy this product again. It's lght to med coverage
Joan from Dobbs ferry NY
I mix a little of my moisturizer and apply with a brush.
Not worth the money
efw from Arizona
I really don't like the smell of this product. I do like that it is vegan and has a high SPF. It seems to brighten the skin a bit, but doesn't cover skin pigment spots. For the price, I would not recommend this product.
I would not buy this product again.
Dortha from Peoria Arizona
I developed a severe chemical reaction to this product.
I live in Florida and this is perfect for the sun protection
Sally from Gainesville, Florida
The best for sun and fun! Natural finish. Not for people who want a lot of coverage. I want my skin to shine through! Love this product! It is my 3rd time purchasing.
Wonderful CC cream!
AVNY from NY, NY
Was looking for a new tinted mineral spf to replace my current Coola matte tint BB cream since it is a) being discontinued & b) getting to be too dry for my skin.
This product is fantastic! So many of this type are too heavy/gloppy/shimmery/pill-y and this is perfect.
Sheer coverage that looks natural and doesn't settle into my pores, works well with my moisturizer (Josie Marian whipped face cream) and blush/powder if I choose to use them.
Moisturizes, skin still looks fresh and not cake-y at end of day. Great to have 30 spf which is perfect for daily city life!
Using the Desert Glow shade; will definitely buy again!
Not a love conection
Taki from Riverbank
The Produts was not right for my skin
Normally a fan
The short one from arizona
I really like this line. But with my recent purchase of it I noticed these little plastic flakes in the CC cream. When I use a different foundation these flakes don't appear. It makes me wonder if there was a production change to the CC cream.
Good Sun Protection
Jess from PA
I use this as a tinted sunscreen. It's good as sun protection/skin care but it's not like makeup and doesn't look great on its own. It goes in really light (I'm light and got desert glow, it looked too dark in the package but went on white). I probably won't buy it again.
I like it
Js from Sd
I'm kind of surprised by all the bad reviews I honestly really like this product. Of course I could have more coverage but for some thing that natural and with spf, im still happy. Cant have it all unfortunately.
Strong eucalyptus oil, burns
stephmeetsdress from Chicago, IL
I tested this in store and got a good color match and I liked the texture and sheer coverage. But I'm glad I spent some more time in the store before buying, because after about 10 minutes my skin was BURNING. Staff got me makeup wipes and I ended up with a different, unscented product. I think it is the eucalyptus that caused it. It's very strong--and why?? Why include it at all? It ruins an otherwise good product. I have somewhat sensitive skin, but I do use other products with fragrance/essential oils without issue, so I think this is just particularly irritating and would not recommend.
thrashrodent from Desert
Very shiny, no coverage, expensive. I have skin like Machete & this cream only brings more attention to the scarring because it's reflective. I like the texture of the cream & the way it feels when applying it but will not purchase again.
Great sheer coverage and protection
Nikki from Reading, PA
This was recommended to me by an Ulta sales associate and I'm so glad! At first, product has a strong smell, but it disappears quickly and didn't bother me. I love the zinc oxide content, and coverage is sheer, which is exactly what I was looking for. Blending isn't as easy as some other bb/cc creams I've used, but that's because it's not watery like some, where the first ingredient is water. Still blends nicely just gotta work at it a little more lol. Evens out my skin tone and I love the ingredients. I definitely recommend if you're looking for sheer/light coverage and sun protection.
Good color/coverage but stinky and greasy
Nina from USA
This did not work well on my oily skin despite the color and coverage being ok. The smell was not great either. Not offensive but not my thing. It was greasy and almost tacky so returned ASAP.
Would not buy again
La prieta from Florida
Was looking for bb cream to replace smash box Camara ready that was discontinued bummer, this one was suggested, no where close to smash box, at least not for me, exchanged it to another suggestion for clinique moisture surge, and let me say love it, goes on nicely and nice coverage
Tony from Irvine
This product is simply incredible. It is completely organic, blends easily with hands, makes your skin look so hydrated (Like you drink a gallon of water a day), and lasts a long time on the skin. Not only is it beautiful on the skin, but it gives you amazing skincare benefits & SPF 30 mineral zinc sunscreen. It's kind of unbeatable to be honest. To those complaining of the smell, 1. It smells like fruit loops. 2. There is not synthetic fragrances in this product, like many other products on the market. Which is 100% so much better for your skin.
Care for your skin now, so you don't have to worry later!
Watery, no coverage, terrible color
Tati from San Diego, CA
This product had the worst coverage, I'm not one to care so much about it but I've had watery tinted moisturizers with more coverage than this "cc cream." I like the ingredients but the color selection and the watery yet oily finish to this is really disappointing.
Did NOT like the formula
Sage from Colorado
I didn't use this long enough to see about any of its "skin perfecting" claims because I couldn't get past the formula. It made my face so sweaty looking, not dewy, but like out in the south with 100% humidity sweaty. Also, it smells kinda like those old vinyl/plastic baby dolls with the faces that smoosh in. You know what I'm talking about.
Lola from Stockton
I was looking to restock my It Cosmetics CC cream and the salesperson at Ulta stopped me and pushed this product on me saying it was just like my tried and true CC cream except it was "all natural and much smoother on the skin."
When I opened it at home the first thing that hit me was the awful grassy smell that came from the tube... I get it's all natural but omg it smelled like all natural cut up weeds. When I went to apply it, the product was greasy like sunscreen and was so sheer it basically didn't show up on me at all and just looked like I smeared slightly tinted slimy sunscreen on my face. The tiny amount of coverage I got only lasted a few hours and became patchy. This product was a huge disappointment.
Fairly good product
Alex from Washington
It's a good product, I don't know why alot of wierd people saying it stinks, I mean it does have a smell but nothing horrible like many say, at first it does smell but after many times using it, it doesn't smell anymore at all the smells fades afterawhile. It does gives a nice glow. If People don't like to look as natural as possible then this product is not for you buy your heavy pound makeup instead.
Love the clean ingredients!
yang from Sacramento, ca
I love this CC cream and it is kind to my skin, prone to redness and breakouts. I was looking for a good mineral sunscreen for a while and this is it. I would recommend going a shade darker than your normal skin tone as the zinc in it makes their shades appear more pale once applied.
taylor from michigan
doesn't give any coverage, just gives a weird tint, smells weird, very oily and I have dry skin
