I don't usually wear foundation - I add a bit of color to my sunscreen or moisturizer. This works much better and has SPF 18. Evened out tone without appearing heavy. I put it over a moisturizer with a higher SPF since my skin is dry and I live in the desert - The result is natural and flawless.

not what I expected - better!
This cream absorbs instantly so I used more than I intended. But the result was a smoother looking face AND NECK without the tightening I find an uncomfortable side? effect for other products that promise to minimize wrinkles. You'll need moisturizer on top (if you're of a certain like me). Expensive but worth it!

produced the best results of any mascara I've ever used doesn't smudge, which is great, but makes it almost impossible to remove, which isn't good

does plump thin lips
inflated my upper lip (looks funny to me) without effective my lower; more "sting" and stronger scent than I expected. The color goes on great, seems to last, and looks good but I don't like the overall effect on me.

I don't really like cleansers I can't rinse off. This seems to do the job and leaves my skin moisturized but it's not really cleaning well enough - It leaves a residue no matter how much a wipe it away that clogs pores and dulls skin. I'll still use it occasionally but not on a regular basis.

I HATE the tube. I have trouble getting the top off and when I do the product is too soft and doesn't apply evenly. I admit it works better than Chapstick but for me it's not worth the mess.

I love that this comes in SPF 30. It's a light moisturizer and for the price can't be beat.

good but . . .
I wish the SPF for this was more than 15. If it were 30 or more I'd probably buy it again despite the high price. IF you have very dry skin and don't see much sun, you'll probably like this. It has the consistency of cold cream and absorbs well, leaving skin feeling comfortable without leaving a white residue like most sunscreens. Makeup, if you need it on top, glides on and stays. My only real complaint (besides the high price and low SPf) is the packaging. You're supposed to pump the top to get the product without sticking your fingers in the jar but the mechanism didn't work for me. I ended up unscrewing the whole top (easy to do - I'm probably not the only one who's had trouble with their pump) and using my fingers anyway. Maybe they could eliminate the useless fancy packaging and lower the price.
