I like a tinted moisturizer with SPF a lot! Though I had some trouble getting it on smooth especially with the primer....Had pilling and dry patches when layered over my (natural) skincare. Found that it works best over facial oil only. I'm assuming this is the case because the product is partially absorbed in to the skin when applied, and conventional moisturizers/ primers block this process.

Okay at best....I find this product to be too light on coverage and also I find it annoying that I need to wear primer under this product because I thought a tinted moisturizer was supposed to be used on light makeup days. ...I gave only 4 stars though because I usually like to wear a primer under these and it separated pretty quick when I tried with my Ofra Northern Lights and Kaja mousse primers.
