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.
