I love this, but can't handle so much scented stuff in my life.
on July 27, 2014
I have green eyes and medium brunette hair, and my skin has slight golden undertones. I live in the desert and have oily, but aging skin. I love this product because it has a light, non-greasy feel to it. it evens out my skintone without becoming a mask, and looks very natural. I use the fair-light and light-medium of this brand mixed about 50/50. I run outside so I find that having both on hand helps me to be able to mix what I need to match my jawline, since my skin is slightly darker in the summer and lighter in the winter.
I've usd the Missha brand cream, Clinique, Revlon, Smashbox, and Physician's Formula BB and CC creams, and all were too thick and heavy and masklike. My face remains even, moisturized, and doesn't break out. I think I did get some clogged pores at first but they went away, so maybe it was just getting accustomed to it.
One caveat, as with most creams - I don't put it under my eyes. I always blend it up to just under where the delicate under eye skin starts. The reason being, all foundations will eventually settle into the creases of that very thin skin and accentuate them.
Now, the reason i took away two stars--the fragrance. It's very strong. By itself it might not be so bad, but I seem to be surrounded by scented things, and I have asthma. I'll stick with neutragena sheers for now. Maybe they'll come out with an unscented version.
