PROS:
It smells really nice, usually a nice smell isn't something you'd really expect from something organic (i've tried organic toothpaste, etc.), it smells like a normal moisturizer, it's light-weight, doesn't give you a thick-heavy feeling on your face, can give you a nice natural look when you want to have a no-makeup day but still want your face to be moisturized. Also has SPF15 which is perfect for the summer, protecting it from harmful rays and prevent signs of aging. The packaging is cute, it's "organic" (har har), but seriously I love the simplicity of the packaging, that "hemp" kind of style. I think this product is great for any skin type (dry, oily, normal) since it doesn't have all the other bi-products in normal foundation, but with any product, always use with caution.

CONS: It comes in a squeeze tube which is fine, but the way they made it, the liquid can ooze out at anytime causing a big mess! There's also that potential of losing the cap in which case I would prefer if the cap was attached somehow or more like those caps where you just twist it to the left or right to open or close to make it ideal for traveling. The coverage is nice and natural, however you have to apply it using your own method because if you apply it using your hands (like you would with a normal moisturizer) you'll notice tiny streaks on your face since it's not applied evenly, so I suggest using a wedge sponge to dab it for better, even coverage.

You might like it if: You naturally have really nice skin and prefer to not wear foundation or makeup but just want some flawless coverage to even out the skin, or for those who want to wear something light under foundation for a bit more coverage or for the airbrushed look. Also, you may like this if you are into organic products.

You might hate it if:
You have acne or pimples currently on your face, as your pimples will draw this product in possibly causing rings around your pimples making them worse or more noticeable, have not time to sit there and work at making it even on your face.

Overall: This product was ok, I would perhaps buy it again, but I don't use tinted moisturizers (just my personal choice), so I may not have an interest in using another one, but I definitely recommend it to anyone that wants to try something new, that's "natural", and especially for those who just want natural coverage and those who don't want to wear any makeup or foundation.

Because of all the natural oils and even a butter being mentioned in there somewhere, I'm going to pass. I can't risk aggravating my oily and congested skin!

Thank you so much for reporting on this product as it caught my eye at the drugstore the other day. I really appreciate your blog and I read it at every post on my Google Reader! Keep up the great work! :o)

Thanks for posting this! I currently use a tinted moisturizer right now (Tarte Smooth Operator SPF 20) and was wondering how this was.

Do you mind posting a picture of you wearing it for finish comparisons?

Thanks for the informative review listing the ingredients. The word 'organic' in the product name is very misleading after reading the ingredients since only 80% is 'organic'. The wonders of marketing. :)

You welcome Incandescent!

I purchased the pressed powder in medium tone and I really do not like the result. It gives a caky look and the colour makes my face look dirty. I really would not recommend it. I'm still searching for the perfect organic make-up.

I wanted some recs on tinted moisturizers and immediately searched your blog! My skin is pretty clear but I just want something to even out the skin tone a little. Ill try this out.

I was excited about the organic aspect of this product, but I really found this to be a poor product...the streaking you mentioned was a major issue for me.

Are you unable to cope with the wrinkles in your face? If your facial deformity is making you unattractive in front of your hubby and he is drifting away from you, then it is time for you to find out an appropriate solution. A host of skincare treatments are available to erase the wrinkles from your face completely but if you opt for the Revitol cream, the look of your face would be entirely changed and the lines on your face would be a matter of a bygone era. Revitol cream is a product of the Revitol company and all Revitol natural skincare products are available for you at www.herbsncures.com/.
