Most Helpful Positive Review Give it a chance!
When I first used this, I wasn't impressed at all, to be honest. It dried down to a matte/semi-matte finish and it left my combination skin feeling dry & tight; it didn't feel lightweight at all. Despite this, I pushed forward & kept using it.
Come to find out, my skin was getting better with extended use! The problems I was having with it had NOTHING to do with the product, but with my actual skin. My skin was dehydrated (not unmoisturized) & overproduced oil in my tzone. Extended use of this product helped regulate that (along with a proper skincare routine). I looked deeper and found the ingredient list rich with hydrating ingredients like snail mucin & a blend of wonderful oils with brightening and soothing properties, compounds that help retain moisture & keep my skin hydrated like niacinamide, and even things to help with my hyperpigmentation issues like hyaluronic acid! I was shocked at how beautiful the formulation of this product is.
We're supposed to be using sunscreen EVERYDAY, no matter how short you're exposed to the sun - even if it's just going to the grocery store! We're also supposed to reapply sunscreen every two hours (depending on our sun exposure), but doing so over makeup can be challenging. This product is perfect for just that! It uses the beautiful ingredients Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide to be a great no-white-cast physical sunscreen!
The product advertises itself as a "full coverage cream" which I found is slightly misleading. If you think you'll get full coverage with, say, just one or two pumps, you're in for a surprise. That being said, this product layers beautifully! You can definitely build up to that full coverage you might be looking for, but will still look very natural.
TLDR: Give this product a chance - not just for a couple applications, but use it regularly so you can really see the wonderful affect it can have on your skin. Definitely buildable coverage, layers beautifully, and is a wonderful sunscreen! Two thumbs up!
Most Helpful Critical Review I really wanted to like this...
After watching rave reviews of this CC cream from some of my favorite YouTubers, I had some extremely high expectations for this product that were sadly not met. I have 40 year old, normal/slight combination skin with occasional dry patches. This cream would cling to my dry patches, oxidize leaving me with an orange hue after a few hours, and separate on top of my slightly oily T-zone. I tried applying this product with and without primer, with a foundation brush, with a beauty blender, with just with my fingers and then I gave up. I passed it on to my 65 year old mother who turned right around and gave it back to me saying that it overly emphasized her wrinkles by settling in them over time, and that it made the rest of her face look like an oil slick. -- My biggest regret is that I used up so much of this cream trying to make it work that I cannot in good conscience return it for a refund.

Initially goes on beautiful! Great coverage and finish. But after just a couple hours, it sets into my notes terribly. It also smudges off wearing a mask for any amount of time. My nose, cheeks, and chin end up looking a mess. Sad to say but not worth it!
Need to see in shop

Was a bit to light- lots of hassle to find time to take back
not for pale peeps
elaina from NH
I wanted to like this since I heard good things about it but it didn't work at all for me. I have combo skin so I tried prepping my skin with primers and moisturizers so that it wouldn't look crusty on dry areas. but it clings to dry patches and then breaks apart where I'm oily. I tried a setting spray and using translucent powder and it doesn't really seem to set it. It feels like it's sitting on top of your skin but then gets into your larger pores making them look bigger. I'm as white as a sheet of paper with neutral undertones and it seemed orange on me.
Yes , I will buy again!!
Polly from San Antonio,tx
I have been using this product since it was demonstrated on TV . It's wonderful and the coverage is excellent!!!!
I like the coverage

I like the coverage
Love the look and feel!
Jaimewools from Utah
I started using this foundation about a year and a half ago and I love how it looks and feels. It's a great product
not for fair skin
Maddy from Minnesota
ordered the lightest shade, and it is the most orange formula I have ever come across and about 3 shades too dark. I have other foundations that are not even close to the lightest shade, and are lighter than this.
Would buy again
CF from LongBeach, Ca
I use under my make up. Help with evening out skin tone before make up and the added sunscreen
Fair is great for pale olive skin, formulation fell short
Miranda from Portland
I loved the idea of a foundation and SPF in one with a buildable and natural coverage. I've only ever heard incredible things about this product, so I had to try it. The formula is very thick and a little goes a long way. One pump of product was enough for my whole face (maybe even a little too much!) I have dry/normal skin and don't require much coverage, but I like to use foundation to even everything out. This covered any redness wonderfully and was a great shade match for my fair olive complexion, however it settled into every single pore and fine line on my face, looking and feeling very cakey. It really "stuck" to my dry skin. After a full day of wear, I was oily in my t-zone (and I never get oily in my t-zone) with redness showing through. Didn't notice any oxidation or improvement with wear (no settling in and looking more natural—it stayed cakey, dry yet somehow also oily) I truly don't understand the hype surrounding this product. This is a hard pass for me.
I love this product.
Bre from San Antonio, Texas
Perfect for every day use. A little goes along way. Perfect for a natraul everyday use. I have an office job and need to look presentable. It did just that.
Not for fair skin
Marie from Tampa, FL
Tried the fair light shade because I am pale with pink undertones, unfortunately it was way too dark for me. I considered exchanging for the fair shade but it says it has yellow undertones and that is definitely not my skin so I guess I will have to go with a different product. I am disappointed because I was very much looking forward to trying this CC cream, I have heard many good things. Hopefully they will come out with some lighter shades 🙂
It's Just Ok
Sofia from Tuscaloosa, AL
The product itself is just ok. This product is definitely not meant for fair skin tones. I am not fair at all and I use the lightest shade on here. This product can also leave your skin to look a little bit cakey.
ORANGE! Do you want orange skin? This is for you.
Natalie from Louisiana
I got the shade "Light" after recommended Light Medium and knew that would be too dark. Wow, it oxidized on the back of my hand seconds after pumping it out and then immediately as I applied it I looked orange. Do not purchase this, it's getting returned immediately. Also the texture is odd, from far away it looks fine but up close it looks like it doesn't want to sit on my skin and looks bumpy
Helps with my redness
Doggydog from Kentucky
I've had my eye on this product for a long time. I finally bought it so I have something light weight for the summer. This product does not disappoint. This helped even my skin tone and tone down my redness. I really like it so far.
Would look for other products
Sandy from Newark, DE
This was just ok but it didn't cover like I thought it would and even though I used it with a really good moisturizer it still felt and looked a little cakes on even though I used only a little bit on my face.
Sherry from Las Vegas
Very unnatural looking. Hard to remove from your pores.
Did not cover my dark circles
DJ from Brownsville Ky
I'm searching for help covering up my dark circles but this isn't it.
I would buy this product again and again
Aitza from Port St Lucie, FL
Love how my face looks and feel with this CC Cream, specially that protects me from the sun.
Too dark and orange for pale skin
Ksm34 from Central, NY
I am fair skinned with pink undertones. I tried the Fair Light as that shade is described as fair with pink undertones. Shade is very dark and orange on my skin so unfortunately going back :-(
Jill from Redlands, CA
I picked the fair light shade because I am a very pale person with pink undertones. Well, the product oxidized on my skin, and turned several shades darker than in the tube once applied. It's a shame, since I can't go for a lighter option since the lightest shade only comes in yellow undertones. Very sad :(
The product did apply easily with just my fingers (I normally use a beauty blender, but this just melted right in). If you can get it in your skin tone, it would be great. It cosmetics, please expand your shade range!
Nallely from Reno, NV
Best spf foundation leaves such a natural look !
Listen to the reviews about not for fair skin
Crystal from Florida
I ignored them and I regret it. My go to foundation is loreal matte in 101 classic ivory but it's just not my exact undertone so I've been searching for a better match and this was soooo much darker and I bought this in fair light.
There's better out there
Lynn from nunya
Goes on nicely but won't set. I've tried different setting powders, and tried it with and without primer and no matter what I do it comes off on my hands and mask and just transfers everywhere, what a mess!! It also really highlights texture. For this price point I expected so much more =(
Best stuff out
Shannon from Carbondale Pa
Only makeup that works for my combo skin. I use it with a damp real techniques sponge and it's insane like airbrushed skin. Only stuff I've used for years!!!! My skin is textured and this stuff totally gets rid of it. Other makeup I can see it settling in my skin. Not this! It covers ALL my redness. I just need a shade lighter than the fair! I'm realllyyy Irish ! The fair still shows a hit orange around my jaw line! Helppp!!!!
Yes I would buy this product again & again!
ROSIE from San Jose, Ca
It felt so good on my face!
