this product is for the girl on the go who wants to instantly look bright and beautiful

- Ulta User

it's very sheer, but after adding concealer to any blemishes/scars, and setting with a sheer powder, my skin looks flawless, totally natural, and just radiant (not glittery)

- Drugstore User



i tried this makeup about a year ago and really liked it because it is light weight and it gives my skin a glowing tint

- Neutrogena User

i love how it is lightweight, smooth and easy to use

- Neutrogena User


blends well

this blends in so nicely and i love the luminosity it gives my skin

- Walgreens User

the ivory to fair blends in almost invisibly, making me look like a better version of myself and not like i'm wearing foundation or even a slightly heavier bb cream

- Neutrogena User



smooth and silky with spf protection--perfect for everyday use as moisturizer/spf protection, blends so well, decent coverage of age spots and leaves skin silky smooth

- Ulta User

absolutely incredible - very lightweight, goes on smooth and makes my skin feel fantastic

- Drugstore User


redness relief

i don't have to wear cover-up with this (unless i have a particularly nasty, noticeable zit) - does a very nice job of evening my skin tone and disguising my redness (minor redness from acne and in nose/cheek/chin area)

- Neutrogena User

i tried the similar neutrogena product but they all have retinol that make me break out in a rash and no other product spf is as high

- Walgreens User

staying power


easy to apply and lasts all day

- Ulta User

this foundation goes on smoothly, blends well, has the best pigmentation i could ever hope for (and i'm usually quite disappointed in this department, seeing as how most 'fair' toned foundations are a sickly white), and not only is it lightweight and has amazing coverage using only a small amount, but it literally lasts all day long

- Neutrogena User

color accuracy


went on ok but pooled and turned orange in some areas, i'm not sure if it's just me but when you first apply it, it looks great

- Ulta User

i've tried it with different brushes,techniques, and even different shades but it oxidizes way too quickly on the skin

- Ulta User



can not keep it on my face for a second, don't know what's the matter, but it just dries out so fast you don't have time to even apply it

- Walgreens User

it was so streaky and clung to dry patches that i've never had before

- Ulta User


medium coverage

this was my first foundation choice because it gives medium coverage while you recive a healthy glow

- Walgreens User

if you have a breakout this will provide medium coverage, but when you add some concealer with it, i find it made my acne less noticeable

Horrible Product!

I usually love neutrogena products and the glow sheers sounded wonderful; however, it was sorely disappointing. First, the ivory to fair was too light, but the fair to light was too dark and very yellow! Second, the product settled into the pores around my nose and it took a lot of blending to make the streaks disappear around my eyes. Third, it made my skin feel very tight and dry as if I was wearing a mattefying foundation. Fourth, it caked along my hairline and left little pieces of sticky foundation blobs everywhere. Finally, I wore it to work, where I am very active and can get quite sweaty and this product slid into my eyes and made them sting! I was looking for something quick and simple to give me some coverage at work because I want to look pretty but not overdone, and this porduct missed the mark by a mile, not only was it not quick, but it certainly didn't make me feel pretty! « less

I had my doubts. My skin tone is uneven and I have some acne scarring - not a ton, but enough to drive me absolutely bonkers every morning when it comes to doing my make-up. I also have a mild case of rosacea so redness is something I deal with. I've been a long time foundation user to cover it all up...but I've grown to dislike the feeling of it on my face, and I think it just causes me to break out more than helps. So the idea that a sheer coverage was going to do it for me was hard to believe, but I wanted to give it a shot.I tried it for the first time this morning. It is pretty weightless and hasn't irritated my sensitive skin. At first I still wasn't sure, so I dabbed on a little concealer just over 2 tiny spots I didn't like. I didn't put any concealer under my eyes like I normally would.It has been 3 hours since I put it on, and wow! my face feels so good! I'm not quite sure how to explain it but my face feels moisturized without feeling oily or heavy. When I look in the mirror, I have this healthy, natural glow and my under-eye circles aren't screaming out how tired i feel (LOL!).This evened out my skin tone just enough to look natural but not a hot mess - it lets my freckles show through, but my acne scars fade into the background - the little bit of shimmer makes me look brighter and more vivacious (note: this is not sparkly or super shimmery - can't even tell there's shimmer in it when it comes out of the tube)I love it! Very pleased - Thank you! « less

This is an incredible product! It's better than any BB cream I've tried, including the one that cost me $36. It's moisturizing, has sheer to moderate coverage (buildable in areas without getting cakey or thick), SPF 30, and antioxidants so it's actually good for your skin. Better than any of the high end liquid makeups I've tried, better than the famous mineral foundation I used for too long. I will forever be a fan of this product! It looks so natural and I feel great about using it daily. It doesn't exacerbate oil or breakouts, it hides minor blemishes, smooths over pores without making them look more obvious, blurs fine lines around the eyes, and doesn't make dry patches on cheeks look worse. It's amazing, and under $15! Plus, it's in a really convenient squeeze tube, so you can get every drop out, it's sanitary, and no glass jars to break. So good! « less

My favorite for daily use

I use this daily as my foundation. I start with primer, apply this tinted moisturizer, and then finish with a translucent powder plus a little mineral foundation where my skin tone is uneven. This tinted moisturizer is perfect for a really natural look; for example if I am going to be outside in the sun all day a heavy coat of mineral foundation is going to look really obvious. This nicely smoothes out my skin tone while also giving SPF coverage and leaving me with a dewy natural look and not a thick powdery one. It does go on a little bit greasy, but it's a moisturizer and I already have oily skin, which is why I always follow it up with Makeup Forever HD Powder. In my opinion it gives better coverage than Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm (which is three times as expensive and does nothing to improve my skin tone). I don't know if it makes sense to use a cheap foundation followed by an expensive powder, but as long as this product looks great on me I see no need to upgrade! Less

L O V E. T H I S.

Yes, I finally found a product for my tan-dark skin! (I purchased the Medium to Tan 40) Initially I purchased this because I wanted a tinted moisturizer that would withstand the sweat of waiting tables out in the heat, sun and humidity down at the shore. So I will be completely honest in this review. This product has VERY LIGHT coverage and will BLUR imperfections but not fully cover them like a highly pigmented foundation or concealer. But this is why I LOVE this product!!! I do not have many blemishes/pimples, but I do have dark spots, faint redness, and the usual dark circles under my eyes after a long night. This product really brightened my dull dry skin with the help of its lightweight formula and shimmer. Yes, it has little very tiny flecks of "glitter" that creates a subtle shimmer effect which is lovely in the sun. It drenched my skin in a beautiful glow that makes me feel confident. Not only does it create radiance with its weightlessness, it smells sweet, contains an SPF 30, and light pigmentation to cover bits of imperfection. (It's very much like a BB cream but lighter) The tube makes for an easy application to a foundation brush or to fingertips. It's versatile and non-comodegenic (specifically formulated to not clog pores) so you can layer a concealer on top for extra coverage without the feeling of heaviness and cakeiness. Yes, this product might be a little high for the amount sold but my skin has benefited greatly. I love putting this product on because it for once it makes me feel great about my skin! Lovely product! « less

I’ve been looking for a good tinted moisturizer. Or VERY light weight/coverage foundation. I’m acne prone and heavy foundations just make it worse and I have freckles and I don’t like hiding them. Also I’m pale, so a lot I’ve found are too dark for me. Any suggestions?

What is a light coverage foundation/bb cream/tinted moisturizer that is good for combo skin?? Specifically, my T-zone is oily but my nose tends to be pretty dry. I’d like something that evens out the skin but isn’t thick or heavy like regular foundation! Affordable is the preferred 💕

I use the one in the picture, super lightweight and give a nice glowy finish for drug store. And for high end, I personally haven’t used it but it’s by Nars it’s the pure radiant tinted moisturizer I’ve heard amazing reviews about it!
