Love this foundation! Applies easily, lovely moisturized finish! It is just hard to find the correct match at first - especially because you are buying online but once I found color number 3 it was the perfect match.

Grateful for the sample which allowed me to get the shade spot on. Really love this foundation. Its thicker and has more coverage than what I'm used to but considering it has a physical spf that is expected. It stays on all day and doesn't cause shine. Will definitely buy again!

Loads of different shades, goes far and feels great! Definitely worth it!

Very disappointing, as I really wanted to like it. It makes my skin shine half an hour after application, transfers onto clothes way more easily than any other foundation I used and does not last. It makes my skin look smooth and nourished right after the application but that's about it.

This foundation smoothes on evenly and the colour is great. Best to keep a couple of different shades due to sun burning changes in skin colouring.

I'm not a fan of makeup, especially foundation, this however is a great product, a little goes a long way, the colour is great and natural looking and is soothing for my dry-ish skin.
