First, just buy it. No need to think twice.I was in the market for a tinted powder cream that matches the color of the dark skin around my eyes. I have to wear glasses all the time and the skin around my eyes is very sensitive to the spf part of the products. I don’t even use this one on my eyes. That said, it has a perfect finish on the skin and that stays all day. I would suggest to apply it with your fingers. The application sponge that it comes with absorbes half, if not more, of the product. Not to mention the sanitary aspect. But that’s me. If I am spending so much I’d like to get my money’s worth on my skin not wash it off the application sponge 😉. The only time I may use the sponge is to tap dry my oily forehead before reapplying the powder. I wash the sponge after each use with less then a drop of mild soap and warm water and rinse it very well until no more soaping water comes out. Bottom line, I finally found the perfect one and this is my tinted protective powder cream that I will be using forever. Please don’t stop making it🙏🏼.
