I've been eating organic food 100% of my diet since 1969 and have tried every brand of organic makeup on the market. Considering how low the price is - the quality is decent. There are other brands of organic foundation I've paid $27 to $32 for which give better coverage if you want to completely eliminate pigmentation, freckles, acne scars - but if you are on a tight budget, this is OK. Just understand it is a tinted moisturizer, very sheer and not going to cover up all imperfections in your skin.

I also like the mascara and powder - I tried both the cake and loose powder in this brand and it is good value for a low price.

I saw in Environmental Working Group one of the products in this line has some petrochemical ingredients - so beware of some greenwashing - [...] - but for the most part this is a very low priced, organic cosmetic. Considering this is "organic makeup for the masses" and sold at Big Box stores like Rite Aid and Safeway it is actually decent quality and fairly pure. Certainly this is much better than Cover Girl, Maybelline and dept store makeup which is full of phtalates, parabens, mineral oil and perfume....don't buy ANY cosmetics with fragrance. Fragrance is made from petrochemical ingredients.

a good investment is to buy a copy of Dictionary of Cosmetic Ingredients - it is around $10 and very handy to use as a reference guide - it is amazing just how much toxic gunk cosmetic manufacturers put in in makeup! For a nano-second I was hoodwinked into ordering online makeup samples from Christie Brinkley's website infomercial. Christie Brinkley is advertising it as "all natural". Baloney! It took me three requests to get the ingredient list but as soon as I read it I was disgusted that 95% of the ingredients in her makeup and skin care is artificial with synthetic, petrochemical ingredients.

For the super low price of Physicians Forumla Organic makeup line - you aren't going to get anything close to it's purity for the low rock bottom price. It is such a huge company they can manage to manufacture a line of organic cosmetics at a very low price!

If you want to go top of the line, Weleda, Gabriel Cosmetics, Mychelle, Dr. Hauschka are my favorites but more expensive.

I am one of those kind of girls that hates the fuss of makeup. I refuse to wake up early to spend my time in front of a mirror, and half the time Im rushing where ever I go applying eyeshadow in a crazy flurry at a stoplight in my crooked rear view mirror. when I find products that make me look half decent and can by smeared on in the matter of seconds Im all for it. Recently, with the aid of a CVS coupon, I decided to splurge on Physicians Formula Organic Wear tinted moisturizer with an SPF of 15. The thing that drew me to this $13.99 1.5oz tube of lotion was the simple fact that it is paraban free, all natural, cruelty free and organic. As someone who prides themself with attempting to be as eco friendly as the market will allow, I chose to give it a go.
I love this product. I have combination skin and often I skip foundation because in areas where my face is dry foundation accentuates the flaws in my skin. this solves my problem completely. It is quick and effortless and I dont have to worry about uneven lines around my chin to help improve my overall skin tone. It comes in various shade groups and hasnt let me down thus far! My only complaint is the lavender smell that overwhelms my senses as i apply it. Im not a fan of the lavender scent in general so this is a huge turn off. however, I only notice it for the first few minutes after using it and then it seems to dissapate. i havent had any complaints from my boyfriend or my baby so Im sticking with it!
This product is intended and perfect for women who dont wear an abundance of makeup and just want a product that hydrates, nourishes, and evens out your complexion. I love that it doesnt look like im wearing makeup, so no matter what my day brings Im not checking myself in the mirror to ensure my face is in place. It is all natural and hypo allergenic unlike other popular drugstore foundations that leave more belmishes than they cover. I would highly recommend this product!

My skin is super sensitive and every single foundation or tinted moisturizer I've ever tried has caused horrible contact dermatitis or eczema like bumps that burn all over my face. Not fun or attractive! One year ago, I was looking at foundations in our local drugstore and saw this tinted moisturizer. Fighting off a raging flare-up from wearing a popular mineral makeup with the initials "B.M.," I decided to give this a shot. I use this on top of Eucerin Calming Cream each morning. My skin cleared up within a week of using this tinted moisturizer. I don't use any powder with it, so I get that trendy glowy look that is so popular right now. I get compliments on my skin all the time and people say how flawless it is. Nobody thinks I'm wearing any foundation at all. I love it! It feels really light weight and just good on my skin. I order from Amazon now for convenience. I have three kids and it's just easier that way. The other bonus is that this tinted moisturizer doesn't contain any of the synthetic ingredients that my son is allergic to. I can give the little guy (he's 5) a big hug and kiss without worrying that my makeup could send him to the hospital. So thrilled to have a product that works so well at such a cheap price. I used to pay $25-$30 for foundations that set my skin on fire. Not anymore!

Gives good coverage, and doesnt cause the flakiness you can get with foundation. Love the ingredients and looks very natural. I'm 55 and need something that helps with skin dryness.

I wish I found and used this earlier! I just bought it from my neighborhood, drug store, to try it out. But after I used this, I was like...whaaaaat...??? Sooo Gooood??? I was surprised....a bit...Smells a bit like lavender, has lavender oil in it and very cooling on the skin. Made my skin sooo soft, and luminous, when I wore it, I got many compliments on my skin and make up. I don't know how it works, but it is really smoothing. The coverage is very sheer, so I wore a bit concealer and a little face powder. My pictures came out glowing, bright and natural, but my skin is not that size is also very convenient, to stash it the purse. Loved it...just loved it...

Ive been trying to go more natural in my skin and hair care after reading about the bad stuff in beauty and health stuff so I bought this along with some jojoba oil for my face at night and some thayers rose petal alcohol free toner.I got this for day time for color and spf because Im not a big makeup woman,I only wear eyeliner,mascara and tinted moisturizer and tinted lip balm.So I thought I'd try this out after I threw away my covergirl tinted moisturizer, it smells good like others had said has a slight lavender smell,its kinda runny and you gotta put it on fast it drys so fast.But for the price it's good for a more natural makeup. I got this in fair to light and it matched my fair skin pretty well.

After years of searching for the right natural tinted moisturizer, I finally found this product. I love it and have been using it for years! It's the perfect amount of coverage for those of us who want to even out skin tone without piling on the makeup. The light to natural is a perfect match for my olive skin with yellow undertones - a hard find. If you're new to makeup: don't rely on this as your moisturizer. It's not drying, but it's meant to be layered over your regular moisturizer. Also, although the texture is a bit watery, it seems to dry pretty quickly - so you have to apply it fast to make sure it spreads evenly. I get compliments about glowing skin when I wear it - give it a try, it's a great product.

I love this product, have been using if for a few years now. It's very lightweight and somewhat sheer. Perfect for applying under a light powder. I like that it's all natural and has titanium dioxide sun screen. I emailed the company regarding the particle size of the titanium dioxide and they say they do not use nano-particles, which is good in my opinion.

the formula is a bit on the watery side and smells strongly of lavender. I also feel like it could sting people alot more with sensitive skin because i dont have particularly sensitive skin and it stung me slightly when i applied it. Coverage is pretty good for an organic product and will hide redness and spots but don't use it for covering up pimples

I'm mixed on this one. I'd recommend getting it from a store that will allow you to sample and return it, if needed.

The pros:
-an interesting, refreshing scent (predominantly a genuine lavender scent)
-a fresh, pleasant feeling on the skin-- a little tingly

The cons:
-poor coverage
-poor colour range

I am very fair skinned--even buying the lightest of this, it is obviously a shade too dark and a shade too rosy--which is odd, as I have rosy tones to my skin. (and does anyone else find the selections of "light to fair" and "fair to ivory" confusing? usually, ivory=fair=light in the foundation world.

Ordinarily, I only wear a small amount of foundation--along my nose and under my eyes.
This stuff is so light that it doesn't really remedy any of those areas' appearance--and because it's a little off and so light in coverage, I end up using three times the amount I would use ordinarily. And adding more pressed powder to cover the sheen/discoloration. In the end, I'm still looking a little off.

Bummer. I'd like to green up my makeup and I like how this feels, but the results on me aren't pretty--which is the point of wearing makeup, right?
