My Thoughts: Oh how I wanted to love this!  Unfortunately, it went in my "fails" bin.  I was highly enticed by the retinol in the ingredients list to help improve the texture of my skin along with spf and color to even my tone.  Sadly, this unique combination of ingredients was a cocktail for disaster where my skin was concerned.  It was very irritating on my face and caused me to continually break out.  I used it several times over a two month period, trying to see if it was a combination of my skincare routine, hormones, or heat/humidity levels.  It continued to irritate even under different conditions.

The shade that I purchased was also the fairest color, and it was far from light enough to accommodate my complexion.  It was at least a shade and a half dark for my lightest, although when I did have more color from being outside it was ok.  The consistency was also a bit difficult, too.  You can't use a damp sponge to apply it or else it will go on splotchy and separate.  I found much better coverage buffing it in with a dense brush like the Real Techniques Buffing Brush.

 

Final Verdict: I wouldn't repurchase this for myself, but it may work for other people.  It's not a bad product, but it definitely wasn't for me.  If you've had a different result, please share your experiences with us!
