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?

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
bad scent and white cast
Mae from Oceanside
I tried to overlook the scent. it smells like celery matching the Juice Beauty concept. however, the smell is too dominant. then the product leaves the white cast and streak. the foundation is easily moved throughout the day. never again.
Grease pit city
Leebug from North Carolina
I returned this. I am particular when it comes to makeup and want an easy makeup routine that makes my skin flawless, but also good for my skin...this is proving to be a challenge. I am sure you could make this work if you add powder, primer etc...but that's too much effort for me and i.m.o defeats the purpose of a cc cream.
Still on a quest for the holy grail. This is not it. Waaaaay too greasy, holy shine!!! I like dewy, but this is more like I put castor oil on as a moisturizer. Why did no one warn me? Right now I'm using bare minerals complexion rescue in vanilla 02 and until I find something else, that's what I'm sticking to.
Product might be good but it smells TERRIBLE.
Kerri from Summerville, SC
The product was highly recommended to me by a girl who works there. It may be a good product but the smell is so strong, I couldn't even try it. If you like the smell of essential oils you may like it, otherwise, STAY AWAY.
Went on like drugstore makeup
April from Phoenix az
This went on like cheap drugstore makeup and was way too yellow for my complexion.
Jg from Michigan
Once I realized I needed to roll the tube between my hands to make sure it's mixed, I fell in love with it!
It blends beautifully, gives me a nice glow, and is lightly buildable (I tap on more where needed).
I love how moisturizing it feels while still being light coverage.
Yes the texture is thick as it comes out but a second or two on your skin and it melts right in, blending seamlessly. I have noted reviews talking about the smell and while I'm normally super sensitive to them, this one barely registers. Maybe because it's natural and not perfumy? Either way there's no scent after it's on.
Crose11 from Nashville
I wanted to love this so much but it just does NOT blend well at all
It does what I want. Moisturizes Sunscreens and Protects.
The Bay Lady from Bay City
I use this daily To fight the skin cancer I was diagnosed, and removed. Great product. The shade was mine.
Au Naturel et Moisturizing
Au Naturel from Orlando, Florida
I'm very proud of my freckles, so it was imperative I find a coverage alternative that would look au naturel. Juice Beauty tinted CC Cream is parfait for my sensitive, dry skin. Le Medium shade is ideal for my olive skin tone. I choose to wear it daily and adore the even coverage it gives me, reducing the redness in my chin area. Yes, I recommend this product for those seeking that parfait summer glow all year round!
Warm Glow and Sunkiss Glow
BrownCurls from California
Please don't ever stop making this product. I don't understand people who complain about smell. This is sunscreen! Not lotion. Fantastic sunscreen with excellent anti-aging ingredients. I am mid 40s and use this on top of Ilia's serum skin tint SPF so that I can get an SPF 70 combined, which is ladies, what we need to be wearing day in and day out if we want to try an look anything close to JLO in our 50s. Save $$ on a gazillion serums and just wear this amped up SPF under or on top of whatever other SPF works for you. Then just move on to make up or mineral veil and you are good to go.
Awful shade selection
Michelle from San Diego, CA
I was looking for the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue tinted moisturizer but I got intercepted by an Ulta salesperson. super nice and i'm sure she was trying to be helpful but she convinced me that i needed this one instead and boy do i regret it. The shade she matched me with was the 2nd to deepest in this range (which is awful, because in most foundation ranges i am almost right in the middle, slightly leaning towards the deep shades). This cc cream made me look like a joke, didn't even finish applying a full face. boxed it up and drove it back to Ulta. Do better Juice Beauty, it's 2021.
P.S: the deepest shade is such a huge jump from the shade I tried and it would be too deep for me.
