      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Fresh faced beauty

      I love Benefit products and one of my many favourites is the You Rebel Lite. It is a tinted moisturiser with SPF 15. It costs £24.50 and comes in a 50ml tube.

      To use you simply remove the cap and squeeze out a small amount. You apply evenly over your face either with make up brush or finger tips. You only need a small amount, as a little really does go a long way. It can be used alone or prior to applying full makeup.

      It makes my skin lovely and soft, and makes me look fresh faced with a clear complexion. It works beautifully on its own or under makeup, I like to use it conjunction with my Some Kinda Gorgeous foundation and when needed Boi-ng.

      I find that it is long lasting and my skin feels soft and moisturised all day and looks fresh. The lite is the perfect colour for me as I am very paled skinned, however it does also come in another shade- regular.

      I find that a tube of this lasts me avery long time as you only need such a small amount and it glides on and is very easy to apply evenly. I prefer to apply just using my fingers.

      It is a great tinted moisturiser and I would highly recommend.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A light tinted moisturiser with sunscreen

      I always wear foundation but when I'm on holidays I have found that a tinted moisturiser is enough because it feels lighter and it gives a more natural coverage. I bought the You Rebel Lite Tinted Moisturiser by Benefit.

      What does the product do?
      The product promises to give a light coverage when hydrating the skin and protecting your face with an SPF of 15. It also contains Aloe Vera to soothe the skin which makes it perfect for holidays too and it contains both Vitamin E and A which means that it helps to nourish and protect the skin, keeping it looking healthier and younger for longer. As far as I'm aware, it only comes in one shade.

      How do you use the product?
      The product is to be used in the same way as a normal foundation but you don't need to apply a moisturiser first. I must be honest, I still use my moisturiser first because it feels unnatural not to. You need to squeeze some of the product out of the tube and then either using your fingers or a make up brush, you can apply the product to the face. You need to take particular care around the jaw line, eye brows and hairline. You can then apply your powder, bronzer or blusher over the top or you can brave it bare faced.

      Packaging and price
      The product comes contained within a beige coloured tube which has some red writing on the front but apart from that, it is quite plain. The box is also surprisingly plain for a product by Benefit. It has a black screw top lid and the product is easily dispensed. The product will cost you around £23 and it can be bought from department stores such as Boots which have a Benefit counter or from a variety of online websites.

      Performance
      The product goes onto the skin easily. It has a very creamy consistency and you are able to work with it and blend it before it dries. It has quite a summery smell that it almost like sun tan lotion. It's nice but not entirely necessary in a face cream product but it added to my holiday experience. The product comes out looking thick and beige like a normal foundation but when it is spread out, it loses some of the colour.

      When applied to the skin, it does give a light coverage (colourwise) but this was to be expected from the name. It won't cover up dark circles under your eyes or spots but it will lessen them slightly. If your skin is in a bad condition with blemishes etc, this won't be enough to cover your skin. The finish is quite dewy and it does have quite an oily finish on my skin which is fine for holidays but definitely not for me when I got home. It hasn't caused any blemishes or discomfort on my sensitive. It is very moisturising and keeps my skin hydrate and looking healthy. It also stopped my face from getting burnt on holiday.

      Conclusion
      This product is a handy one to have with you on holiday because it is hydrating, stops you burning and gives you a light coverage. However if have skin with blemishes or imperfections, or if you have oily skin, then I wouldn't use this one. I will keep it for whenever I am holidays as it works well for this purchase.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A great tinted moisturiser that is definitely worth the price.

        You rebel lite is ideal for those with a very fair skin tone. It is easy to apply and works as a great base under blushers and bronzing powders. The texture of the moisturiser is lovely and it provides long term satisfaction for the easily bored. The fragrance is extremely minimal so should not be a problem to those with very sensitive skin and the fact that the moisturiser contains SPF 15 is obviously beneficial for the summer time.
        Although the price of the moisturiser is quite high it is a small price to pay due to all the advantages. It is beneficial in various ways such as the fact that there is no longer a need to wear a foundation as the skin feels liberated and less clogged up. The moisturiser also seems to last all day so there's no need for re-application and the skin feels generally softer now. Also, only a small amount is needed when applying so the tube lasts for ages.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A must have for all make up bags!

        I love benefit products and spend a lot of money on there products. This product is a clear example of why I love benefit! I have been using this product for three years now and it hasn't ever let me down.

        I feel the cost is reasonable for the tube that lasts a long time as you do not need a lot of foundation as a little goes a long way.

        The coverage is good and even and is very easy to apply. Unlike other foundation moisturiser it lasts all day and doesn't need topping up, it is light on the skin so doesn't go cakey.

        When I go on nights out I do tend to use a thicker moisturiser but I have friends that use this as there foundation.

        It does have SPF 15 in it however I have read that it is impossible to have both and people feel that it makes this product greasy, I have not found that I get a greasy face when using this product.

        I would recommend this product to anybody, I feel it is a must have in the make up bag.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A greasy product that sits on top of skin, not to be recommended

        Benefit describes this product as:
        Our defiantly different tinted moisturizer gives your complexion coverage, moisture and SPF protection all in one. For fair-skinned rebels.

        I bought this product as I am a little bit obsessed with Benefit products and I needed some sort of foundation without it being too heavy.

        Although Benefit says that this is a moisturiser as opposed to a foundation, personally I feel that it very much does have the consistency of a foundation and therefore does provide good coverage. The colour is also perfect for my skin tone. As well as this - lasts all night and no need for touch ups.

        Other reviews I've read about this product tend to say that it doesn't go cakey. Perhaps in comparison to other foundations it's not too bad, but I still feel that this does have a tendency to 'cake', especially on dry patches.

        I also agree that the product is quite greasy, and I always use a powder over the top because it's just too shiny. I also heard recently that an SPF and moisturiser cannot work together, a product can only be one or the other because they combat different layers of skin. This is an interesting thought and I guess that is why this product is greasy and just sits on the skin - I can't feel it working as a moisturiser at all.

        I wouldn't buy this product again and I wouldn't recommend to friends either, but it does the job, I just think there are probably better products out there.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Fantastic base with SPF

        I NEVER leave the house without a little bit of make up on. I have quite a lot of freckles and sun spots and in recent years I have noticed I look a little washed out without a little bit of make-up to perk me up. I'm not one for using lots of products, I don't have the time, but this is one that I use everyday.

        I first bought this a year ago, I had been using foundations for a number of years and wanted a change. Personally I find foundations can be too heavy and as a tinted foundation this product was a lighter option.

        What it looks like
        It comes in an eye-catching, simply designed red box. There is nothing too fussy about it and it is very easy to spot on the shelves of benefit make up counters. Inside the box is a simple toothpaste like tube which is an unexciting cream colour with a black screw cap. Very simple and not that glamorous to look at.

        Using the product.
        I rarely seem to have much time to get ready in the morning. I lounge around in the bath for a good 30 minutes and never seem to leave myself enough time to get dressed and do my hair and make-up. This product is perfect for people like me. I apply to clean skin by just dabbing a little around my face using my finger tips (you could use a brush or sponge if prefferred) and then massage in. It feels really moisturising and sinks in to my skin very quickly so I do not feel the need to use a separate facial moisturiser first. I would describe my skin as normal and my T zone does tend to become slightly oily during the day. If your skin is a bit drier you may find that you need to use another moisturiser first. This is the 'lite' version so is a really nice pale shade and gives a barely there coverage Benifit do make a darker shade but it is too'orange' for my skin. As this shade is pale and is a tinted moisturiser rather than a foundation it is incredibly easy to blend. I have not had experienced any 'tide marks' around my jawline and it does not go cakey on my slightly oily T zone as foundations tend to. It only offers light coverage so I use concealer to hide any unwanted blemishes. If you tend to prefer a heavier base then this product is probably not for you.

        What I find appealing in this product is the fact that it contains an spf 15 as using it means my skin is protected from ageing sun rays all year round. I do like to use a heavier spf protection in the summer though.

        Price and Value for money.
        Once opened you rebel lite will be safe to use for 12 months. I find the 50ml tube lasts 6 months when it is used once every day and at £23.50 a tube in boots I think this is great value.

        In my opinion this is a perfect everyday base which I will continue to buy.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Good quality but only for very pale skin...

          - Price and Packaging -

          Currently £15.50 from www.thecosmetichouse.co.uk or £21.50 from Boots for a 50ml tube of it.
          This 50ml tube of foundation is presented in a box. The tube has a screw top lid under which there is quite a large hole through which the product is dispensed. Be sure not to squeeze too forcefully as like me, you may end up with quite a bit of wastage.

          - What is it? -

          * Tinted moisturiser
          * SPF 15
          * Contains aloe ~ good for soothing and moisturising your skin.
          * Contains Vitamin A ~ intended to improve the elasticity of your skin and therefore fights signs of ageing.
          * Contains Vitamin E.
          * Winner of Life and Style Best of Beauty Awards ~ Best Tinted moisturiser, 2008.

          - My Experience -

          Having used the bog standard You Rebel Tinted Moisturiser which was ideal for my skin in the summer months when I have a healthy glow, I thought that I'd give this one a try for the winter months when I feel that the standard one is a little too dark.


          The directions of how to apply this moisturiser were duly followed, applying evenly all over my face with fingertips although I wasn't quite sure where to get a foundation brush which is also one of the tips on the back of the tube, a foundation sponge perhaps?

          The product has a lovely rich, thick consistency with a light fragrance to it. It is easily worked in to my skin although I find that a little really does go a long way, given that on the first few applications I squeezed far too much on the palm of my hand. It covers the imperfections in my skin tone but disappointingly it is just far too light for my skin tone.

          I always think that I look pale in the winter months but being half Italian my skin tone is probably a shade or two darker than the English Rose type skin for whom I think this moisturiser is designed. In fact, a couple of my friends use this and are delighted with the colour, it blending in perfectly with their skin tone but this actually makes me look far paler than I actually am!

          Despite this I have used it a few times and if not for the shade of the moisturiser I would be delighted with the length of time it lasts and the fact that it conceals any imperfections in colouring of my face..... Just be careful not to apply too much as it can look a tiny bit shiny when first applied. It doesn't dry out my skin and the added bonus is the SPF 15 in it although I haven't needed that much over recent weeks, given the weather!

          - Overall -

          This is a good moisturising foundation in terms of coverage and moisturising properties but unfortunately for me it is just too pale in tone ~ must remember to think about trying the tester out a bit more carefully as opposed to buying things in haste!

          Thanks for reading ~ Review also appears on ciao.

            great

            * Your a Rebel *

            Since it's summer I like to change up my foundation as It's hot and it falls of your face so I wanted a tinted moisturiser as I feel it's lighter for summer. I love this stuff , I didn't like it at first as I thought it made you face really shiney but I love it !! ..

            * about *
            so this is a tinted moisturiser and it's said to even your skin tone. which It does but if you have bad skin , it wont give you enough coverage. This also has as SPF of 15 in it which is great as I often forget to protect my face. I apply a small pea sized about rub it between my hands and then on to my face. It has a really nice smell as well.

            * The packaging *
            This comes in a toothpaste type tube which means the product is easy to come out and you feel that your not wasting any , the colour of the tube is a light skin colour with you rebel written across it with red writting. I like the packahing.

            * Final thoughts ? *
            I love this , but don't use to much as it will give you a really shiney face however you might not like if you want a heavier coverage as the coverage isn't great but I think it's perfect for the summer as I don't like wearing to much make-up

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              I would recommend this is you want a sheer coverage and would like to give your skin abit of a boost

              Since it is summer i have been trying to go for a more natural, bare faced look. Heavy foundation just does not look good in the heat, so i decided to try Benefit's You Rebel tinted moisturiser as i wanted to look natural but still like to feel like a have abit of coverage. I bought the lite one as i am quite pale and the regular You Rebel looks quite dark and abit orangey.

              *Using the Product*

              The product comes in a toothpaste like tube, which is quite good as you can keep rolling it up when you need to get more product out, the only problem is if you squeeze it too much too much product can come out which is abit of a waste.

              The product looks quite pigmented when you squeeze it out, it looks like a warmish yellowy colour. The product isn't overly very pale, it gives quite a nice glow, which i think is perfect for summer. When i start to blend it into my skin it looks abit darker than my natural colour, but if i keep blending it settles down and looks quite natural. It is very easy to apply and blends in nicely so it doesn't leave any tide lines like a foundation can.

              A great thing about this product is that it it has SPF 15 this is really useful as it protects the skin and i don't have to use a separate sun screen. The product is also supposed to contain vitamin A and E, so i guess that a bonus. The product feels nice on the skin and does not irritate, it has not given be any breakouts yet so i am quite happy with it.

              You do get quite alot, 50ml, which is alot more than then foundations i have bought in the past. However, i find that i need to apply alot as a little does not go very far.

              *The Result*

              This product does provide a natural finish. When blended it isn't thick, cakey or obvious looking like foundations can be. I find that it evens out skin tone, gives my skin abit of a boost and give a radiant finaish. But as it is only a tinted moisturiser it not provide a very good coverage, it is very sheer, so some of my acne scars are still visible. If you want fuller coverage this might not be suitable. I also found that it wasn't very matte and was quite shiney so i usually use a little power to set it.

              Overall, i am quite pleased with the product. It is kind to the skin, a good tinted moisturiser and i quite like the colour. However, i would be happier with abit more coverage. It cost me £21.50 from Benefit, to be honest i feel this is quite expensive but it is a nice product to have to wear in the summer weeks.

              I have given it 4 stars because i think it is a nice change and good quality product, however i do prefer the look of a conventional foundation.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Ideal product for those who dont like to wear a lot of makeup but want their skin looking at its bes

                I am not a foundation fan... I get bored, I get fed up of it getting cakey and thick and making me look like I am wearing a lot of make-up when I really dont need to. Consequently I end up with 100's of half used ones cluttering up my make-up bag.
                After telling a saleswoman at the Benefit counter about my plight she suggested You Rebel Lite. A tinted moisturiser with an SPF15(for all day skin protection) and a new addition to the benefit range. It is the same as the original You Rebel but is designed for the fairer skinned and arrived in stores after high demand.
                It comes in a 50ml toothpaste style tube. You can roll up the end when you're running out to squeeze out every last drop. However if you squeeze too hard it tends to go a bit crazy and uncontrollable. It just keeps oozing out and theres no way to stop it and you get a lot of waste.
                The packaging is pretty average compared to the rest of the Benefit range. There is no bright, retro style box, the tube is beige and pretty plain. After a while I have found that general wear and tear cause the beige plastic coating to be worn off leaving me with an even more boring silver tube.
                The moisturiser itself is ideal if you want to show off your complexion without wearing too much make-up. It keeps your look very natural. It has a creamy consistency and blends easily across the skin giving an even coverage without making you look orange.
                As it is a moisturiser a little goes a long way and too much can leave you skin feeling greasy. I have also found as the weather gets warmer, it becomes a little greasy throughout the day, especially on the forehead, leading to a less even complexion. This can be solved by using a mattifying powder or bronzer such as Benefit Hoola. Sometimes some additional concealer is required underneath the eyes or on blemishes.
                I find that application works better if a foundation brush or sponge is used, the look is better and there is less lost on your fingers.
                Retailing at £21.50 on the online site this is pretty pricey but as with most Benefit products i'd say its worth it. Ive had mine for 4 months and i've still got about 3/4 of a tube left.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                brilliant for people who dont suffer with acne, & in need of a bit of glow.

                I dont really like wearing foundation and have never worn it. I always buy it, try it and don't like it. I think it makes me look too fake, I prefer to look natural with a bit of a glow. So I decided to try a tinted moisturiser, I was originally going to get the original You Rebel but heard it is a bit dark, I am quite pale.

                I hate being so pale, I've tried sunbeds, which is not good, I know! and different kinds of fake tans but I really dont think it suits me unless its a proper tan. But it is nice to have a bit of colour, a glow and maybe a little bit of coverage, I don't need much though as I don't get spots just have a dull complexion.

                When I first tried this product, I was impressed! It was everything I needed in a product, it's not going to cover spots so maybe try using a bit of concealer under it when you just don't feel like putting heavy foundation on your face. It feels like you're not wearing anything but gives you a sheer natural glow with just that little bit of colour. I will definitely be repurchusing this when I run out, I like the fact it looks as though you're not wearing anything as I like to look more natural and you don't want to put people off by wondering what flaws you have underneath your make up!

                I can't tell you how long it lasts, I've only used it around 7 times and I use quite a lot cus I have a big face haha, but I imagine it lasts forever if you use a little less. It's in like a toothpaste packaging and when I first used it, loads squeezed out so I try to be more careful now.

                It is pretty expensive I think. I don't think its a miracle worker, but at £22 for 50ml I'm not sure if its completely worth the price tag! I think I will try a few other tinted moisturisers and if I don't like them as much as this one I will probably continue to buy it. I suppose it all depends on how long it lasts, but I really like it. :)

                Here's a list of the ingredints : Octinoxate, Oxybenzone, Octisalate.
                Also contains Aloe, Vitamin E & Vitamin A
                And also contains SPF15 but do not know if it contains UV filters.
                I heard SPF's are only effective if you put them on as soon as you wash your face. Which I don't do, so I'm not sure if its any help but, hey!

                I've also heard negative feedback on the ingredient Oxybenzone but all skincare & make up contain a few bad ingredients.. It works brilliantly for me so I will continue to use it!

                  Disadvantages

                  A new staple for my makeup bag, perfect for my dry skin.

                  Having become too pale for my usual mineral foundation, I had run out of alternatives that would suit my super-dry winter skin and decided to splash out on Benefit's You Rebel. When I say splash out, I actually mean impulse purchase it cheap off eBay, to discover upon receiving it that whilst I did get a good deal, it looked rather disheveled for something supposedly BNIB...refund on its way I hope!

                  I am a big fan of Benefit's, I love the quirky titles and packaging, but most importantly find that the products deliver too. I especially like the Benefit philosophy of "fix-its" to help you look fresh-faced and flawless without having makeup caked on, which is exactly the look I'm going for.

                  You Rebel is a tinted moisturiser, which comes in two shades - "regular" in a red tube and Lite in a flesh-tone tube. I have heard that even people with more tanned skin find the regular version way too orangey, despite it claiming to adjust to all skin tones. Thankfully Benefit responded with the Lite version, which is what I bought, and if you are at all in two minds I'd recommend popping along to a Benefit counter to test before purchasing so you don't end up being Tangoed!

                  The product comes in a 50ml tube which resembles a tube of paint, and as such can be rolled up when it gets low to ensure every last bit can be used up. You only need a pea-sized amount each application, and the tube makes it easy to do this. I will say, though, that if you accidentally push too hard or scrunch on the end of the tube, the product will rush out of the tip of the tube forevermore once you open the lid! I ended up having to store some of it in the lid of my Sudocrem jar after it escaped...lesson learned!

                  The moisturiser rubs in easily and distributes a dash of colour evenly across your face. I can have very dry skin in winter which some foundations cling to and look terrible, but this helps keep all of my skin supple, fresh and glowing. It looks so good that I feel as though I have applied Benefit's High Beam onto my cheeks to give them a glow. Like many Benefit products, it smells good too, a fresh cucumbery scent, which I love because if you are trying to pull off the natural look, you don't exactly want to smell like a load of chemicals!

                  Chemically-speaking, I can't lie and say this is sugar and spice and all things nice. Although it contains aloe, vitamins A and E and SPF15, there is also the added unpleasantness of Oxybenzone. Honestly, I didn't know what this was, but a quick Google told me that it's contained in sunscreens because it absorbs UV rays, but some people claim has cancer links. Well, although I'm all for my usual mineral makeup when my skin matches its shade, I'm not about to stop wearing sunscreen, so I am taking that with a pinch of salt - what DON'T people say gives you cancer these days?

                  Coverage-wise, you can never expect miracles from a tinted moisturiser, whose job is not major concealing but mild evening out of skin tone. So if like me you need a bit of help covering dark circles, you will need to use a concealer (I use Benefit's Boi-ing), the same goes for any blemishes. I do however find that as the moisturiser is yellow-toned, it helps eliminate slight redness around my chin and nose.

                  Now for the hard part, the hefty pricetag. At £21.50 this certainly doesn't come cheap, however the 50ml tube will last a LONG time (even longer if it arrives full...*sulks*). I've read reviews of people who use this daily and still aren't close to finishing it after a year!

                  I'd recommend this product to anyone who prefers a more natural kind of beauty and doesn't like to feel caked in makeup. And also for lazy girls like myself who want to moisturise and be done up in one go! If you have major skin problems that require a lot of coverage, clearly a tinted moisturiser isn't going to do enough for you. Although I'm using it to help combat winter dry skin (I still use my normal moisturiser first), I think this is more a product geared towards summer, when you don't want a full face of makeup that will melt off halfway through the day, and can benefit (no pun intended) from the SPF. All in all, a pretty worthwhile year-round investment then.

                  The lighter version of Benefit's famous You Rebel

                  Despite their high prices and occasional dud products, I have always been a fan of Benefit Cosmetics. I have been using their mascara, eye shadow and eye liners for years without having to consider switching to another brand, and have also enjoyed using some of their other products. While some items such as their eye creams and lip plumper were a disappointment, one of my favourite products for years was their 'You rebel' tinted moisturiser. When I was at school, my skin never really had spots or anything in particular to cover (for which I am very grateful), and so there was never really need for me to wear foundation (although I did wear it for a while due to peer pressure, but there you go), and so when I discovered tinted moisturiser, I was delighted. Benefit's You Rebel was great on my skin, as it made my skin tone more even, as well as giving me a bit of a tan, as I was very pale. The only problem with it was that since I was so pale, and the moisturiser so dark, I had to be very careful to apply exactly the right amount to my face and to do so evenly, or I would look as if I'd been tangoed. I carried on using it for quite a while, though hoped that one day a paler version would come along.

                  Well, it seems like someone at Benefit Cosmetics was listening to my prayers, because last year they released the new You Rebel Lite, which is exactly the same as the original product except aimed at people with paler skin, like myself. Since this moisturiser costs a whopping £19.50, I didn't get around to trying it until my Birthday last November, when someone nice bought it for me. The packaging and appearance of the product is almost identical to that of You Rebel, except that its tube is the colour of pale skin rather than the original red colour. Both shades come in a metal tube which contains 50ml of moisturiser, and by squeezing these tube like a tube of toothpaste, you can get to the tinted moisturiser within.

                  So, onto using You Rebel Lite. On squeezing a small amount from the tube, I noticed that the moisturiser is only very slightly darker than my skin colour, which is quite impressive considering that I would consider myself to be very pale, and always have to buy the lightest or second lightest shade of foundations and concealers. I rubbed a small amount onto my cheek, and was happy to discover that it blended into my skin very well, without really looking like it was there at all. No more tango! I rubbed it in evenly to my whole face, and concluded that while you couldn't tell that I had any skin make-up on at all, my skin looked a lot more even and a lot more attractive to look at. Finally, barely-there make-up which actually makes me look good.

                  While this tinted moisturiser really does its job of making my face look more even and nicer, I would have to say that it's not particularly tinted. If you're pale and are looking for a bit more colour, then you're only going to get it if you're absolutely porcelain. I would recommend it as a base if you have problem free skin, and then you can add bronzer over the top if you're looking for a bit more colour. Unfortunately, if you have many skin imperfections or spots, this product probably won't be for you, and you'll be better off using a foundation to help cover these things, if you want them covering. Although I rarely get spots, I find that You Rebel Lite isn't good enough to improve my complexion on days when my skin isn't looking quite its best, and that most of the time I go for foundation and other make-up when I need more coverage. You Rebel Lite is perfect, however, for days when my skin looks alright on its own, or when I'm just popping down to the shop or something, and while I'm not exactly bothered about how beautiful I look, it's good to have something to make me look less terrible.

                  In conclusion, I would recommend You Rebel Lite for pale girls with generally good skin. If you have darker skin, I would recommend the original You Rebel, as it's good for adding a bit of colour and for evening out your complexion. I would say that You Rebel Lite is good to have for days when you don't quite need foundation but want to put something on your skin to make you feel better about yourself, but unless you have flawless skin, don't use in in lieu of a good foundation and concealer. Also, since it contains SPF 15, it's a good product to use on sunny days like today, as it will make you look pretty and stop you from burning.

                    A good tinted moisturiser that gives an even coverage and lasts all day

                    After testing out the original You Rebel at a Benefit counter i found it to be far too dark for my skin tone so when i heard they were bringing out a version for lighter skin tones i thought i'd try it out. The product is packaged in a box with lots of shredded paper which is just a waste and isn't needed at all. The design is also rather simple for a benefit product but i found that you get a good amount of product for the price with this moisturiser which can't often be said for items within the benefit range. I often wear this product alone without foundation and just apply concealer over the top and power as i find it gives a good enough coverage for day to day use. I apply it with my hands as i find this gives a more even coverage than using a brush, however i use a moisturiser and primer before applying it because i have dry skin sometimes i found that it appeared a little more visible in places if i didn't apply those before it. I'd recommend this product to those that don't really want to wear foundation but want a product that gives a light-medium coverage and doesn't feel heavy when wearing it. A good product overall that does what it's supposed to do!

                    The thought of light coverage is nice, but in the end most of us don't have perfect skin to start.

                    Many people agree that this creates the illusion of no-makeup- why would you want that?! I bought this tinted moisturiser because I didn't want to wear foundation during the summer, and I wanted something that protected my skin while providing coverage.

                    Turns out it was not suited to me. I am a big Benefit fan but I found this product had little to no effect on my skin, I just didn't see any coverage, which was disappointing. It also failed to minimise pores or treat dryness.

                    That said, if you like a VERY light coverage, you may be interested to try this. The bottle is large so would last for a long time, and it has a nice consistency without being too heavy. It reminds me of toothpaste! Squeezing the tube allows you to get every drop of the product- a great thing for something so expensive! I stopped using this after my first use.
