Wonderful for the price!...I must wear a minimum of 30SPF, it needs to be sweat & water proof so those tinted BB cream with a laughable SPF will not cut it and I am not a foundation person so my only option for not looking like the negative of a Dalmatian, is to try to fake a tan to camouflage my patchwork of skin colours
