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's best for summer in my opinion, and gives me a nice sun-kissed glow.

The first time I used this, it pilled up pretty bad but hasn’t nearly as bad since. ...light and beautiful natural sunscreen...This is light, it melts in easily, is not chalky like a lot of other natural sunscreens. Feels the perfect amount of emollient, and blended easily on me.
