Most Helpful Positive Review A years-long search is over at last
As an extremely fair ( think Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue in 1.5 Birch, and Fair in IT Cosmetics ) copper brownette with definite yellow ivory undertones and certain sensitivities, finding foundation shades has always been a challenge. Fortunately my skin has been mainly trouble-free for most of my life, so coverage has never been a large issue until about five years ago. When I turned 60, the latent Rosacea inherited from my Celtic ancestors exploded like an invasion of berserkers, mapping my face with blood vessels and blotches. A thoughtless acquaintance once snarked that she knew when I was overheated, because it was "so much fun to watch you turn purple"! It would be less painful if I did not have to venture into public, but my husband and I teach on a volunteer basis, and he is also an artist, and we do the festival curcuit to sell his wares. It is important to be able to interact with--not distract--those we meet. Finding some sort of coverage for my issues has been frustrating to say the least--most products flake, pill, or patch, or are heavy and age-enhancing. Also, a severe allergic reaction to an unknown substance that lasted six months left me scarred and peeling. Talk about ready to capitulate! I don't know why I decided to try one last product, but I resigned myself to expecting no results and chose this First Aid Tinted Moisturizer. If anything, at least it has sunscreen, and I thought it wouldn't hurt me. Well, the first time I applied it ( over bare skin ) I nearly wept--for joy! It went on smoothly ( you need to blend fairly quickly, but the product will permit a bit of building if you wish ), left me with a lovely, believable, non-glittery glow, and covered about 75% of my problems! I touched up one of the worst red zones with a bit more building, and finally achieved about an 85% result. My skin felt moist all day, and three months of use has produced no reactions. I'm no longer ashamed to go out! Thank you, F.A.B.!
Most Helpful Critical Review Nice Addition to Makeup Routine
As someone with sensitive, acne and rosacea prone skin, it's awesome to find a tinted moisturizer to finally add to my skin routine. I love that this doesn't break me out and has some sun protection!
The downside on this one is that it's pretty thick and chunky. I actually find it helpful to mix the product in with a little liquid foundation. That helps the product spread more easily for a fuller, more even coverage. It also helps avoid the final result looking too shiny. I like a more matte look that this provides, so a little extra pump of matte foundation really helps balance things out. My only other negative is that the shade range for this product makes me super sad! Twelve shades and nine of them are for light skinned folks. Step up your diversity game, FAB!
Reviewed by 168 customers Amazing NATURAL coverage!
Elle from Washington
Let me start with if you have oily skin this definitely isn't the product for you, as it will make you shiny.. also if you expect it to work like a foundation you will be disappointed, it is very light and natural coverage that makes your skin luminous. This product offers a light coverage and has a fairly good rating on the ThinkDirty app, meaning the ingredients are less likely to irritate your skin (I can attest to this as I have very sensitive skin) overall 4/5 stars, it gets a little oily throughout the day but it stays, doesn't oxidize like others, easy to blend, and a little goes a long way.
Looks great ALL day!
Leah from Pa
Easy to apply and looks great even when I just use my fingers to put it on. I have combo/dry acne prone skin and this made my skin look and feel glowy and even without feeling like I had any makeup on. I gave 4 stars instead of 5 because sometimes it needs to be mixed/ shaken a bit. Overall a great product that I will continue to repurchase
Nessa from California
I wanted something lightweight and natural, more for everyday use rather than my full coverage foundation. It was far too luminous for me. I already struggle with oily skin and this made me look more greased up. I also struggled with applying it because it wouldn't stay in place. I could not blend it and it would literally slide off my face. I had to use a powder brush to wipe off the excess foundation that piled up. I only wore it once but I see other people had this problem too so I won't be giving it a second chance.
I love this product my favorite. I'll buy it again and again
MR from Edgewater. N.J.
I use foundation only for special occasions after I purchased it. Highly recommend.
Maria from Hinesville GA
Love the product
Love this product will try this product again.
Mely from Edinburg,tx
Nice product very happy with purchase.
Perfect quick lightweight
Gracie from TX
I have dry sky and a lot of breakouts and this goes on the skin so nicely. Good coverage for virtual work.
Not worth it
Nora from Charlotte NC
While there are many problems with this product, my main frustration is that it PILLS SO MUCH, just like your favorite old sweatshirt. I have applied after primer with an ova brush and again with my hands but I can never seem to blend it in.
? from ulta
has great color and feels amazing but there use SO much glitter and shimmer i just can't use it.
Like bb cream
Loly from San Fernando
Looks and feels like a bb cream and color correcta while offers sun protection
High expectations ending in disappointment
Alyssa from PA
I really wanted to love this product but it is the worst purchase I have ever made from Ulta especially for the price! I have tried this item out three times thinking maybe I was doing something wrong and every single time my eyes burned soooo bad I couldn't even open them. I didn't put the product on my eyes and it makes my faces so greasy. I would not recommend this product to anyone.
Light weight and great hydration
Jan from Brunswick, GA
This is a repeat buy
Mid-life Cristi from South Orange County
This is my go to, throw on quick tinted moisturizer for daily wear. It blends easily and quickly, provides sun coverage and doesn't look like I have makeup on. At 57, I find it difficult to use regular foundation as it's too heavy, settles into the skin And generally makes my skin look worse. Tinted moisturizers or BB creams tend to look much better. This is my daily wear go to product.
Burns my eyes
Minna from Oak leaf
I don't know why it burns my eyes!! It goes on terrible.
Not the best
Luluuuuuuuu from Oak leaf
It made my face very greasy, I don't know if it's because it has sunscreen with it but I look like a dang grease ball. I got the color light and on the package it is very light but when I put it on it was orange.
The best tinted moisturizer!
Kay from Connecticut
It's a great, light substitute when you don't feel like putting on a full face of makeup. And 30spf!
Perfect for Summer
Kellie from NJ
My absolute favorite summer foundation. The tan is so perfect!
Made my eyes burn!!!
Makeupjunkie from TN
I really wanted to love this. But it's a no all around. It looks greasy. And it slides right off my face. I have tried it several times using different methods applying it. And nothing worked. Every time I try it my eyes burn so bad. Obviously I don't put it in my eyes, but for whatever reason out of all the make up I've tried. This one is by far the worst!!
leilaD from Florida
I bought this for a more natural day of no foundation and a glowy natural look. I noticed it was a little oily but it minimized my pores and made my skin look more natural. At the end of the end when I cleaned my face I had breakouts and clogged pores. The next day I really saw how much it had clogged my skin. My breakouts around my chin and jaw line got bad. It was extremely oily and felt greasy and heavy. Definitely not keeping.
Great for Summer
Rachel from Maryland
Very nice tinted moisturizer for summer with bonus SPF. Perfect coverage - evens out skin tone without looking or feeling heavy. I add concealer for anything that needs more than light coverage. Makes my skin feel smooth and soft with a nice glow. I find it lasts longer when set with powder or spray. I had purchased this product a few years ago and was glad to see that they have a better color range now - in I'm very fair and the previous shade "fair" wasn't quite right - "ivory" is much better. I would recommend this product for anyone looking for a lightweight makeup this summer!
Kayt from Texas
About a year ago, I purchased this product after it was recommended to me by a store employee. I was looking for something natural and light for those 'less-than-perfect' skin days that I just couldn't get away with not wearing makeup to work. Within two hours of wearing this product, it was literally sliding off my face. I've applied this product with primer, without primer, with moisturizer, without moisturizer before, applied setting powders like 100 different ways, and it is just always a slippery mess on my face. Six months ago, my face was on the oilier side, so I just attributed it to that; however, my skin has made a complete 180 and is now extremely dry (thank you retinoids), so I decided I would give this another shot... NOPE! The coverage is decent, but if you don't want to reapply makeup constantly, you may want to look elsewhere...
Oxidizes SO much
Stellababella from Illinois
Oxidizes to about 2 shades darker and feels SO oily! The undertone of this product looks so unnatural!
The sunscreen performance for this product is lacking
Anonymous from Missouri
I recommend you use a SPF underneath this product
nickie from san jose
looks good and also is healthy on my combination skin
Ateam_mama from Oregon
I use this in the morning and wear alone or underneath my makeup. Provides nice even coverage and protects my skin.
