Good tint, good texture, and MINERAL sunscreen...I really like a mineral sunscreen and now again, I'm hearing about certain combinations of chemical sunscreens, previously considered safe, can form a carcinogenic substance when combined. ...I really like this BB cream, I like that it's matte and it's not too full but not too transparent either.

It works really well on its own and the brand is really transparent about the ingredients. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because it starts to show the texture on my skin when layered with other products. ...consider this a “heavy” sheer option; that is, it’s something more than just a fully transparent sheer, but not quite medium coverage. For me, this works really well and I think this is a great product.
