My Opinion:

I really don't understand, how come most of the foundation that I like will end up discontinued....

This is one of those products that has been discontinued, but I've really enjoyed using it. First of all, this comes with SPF30, which is the basic for my need (IMO anything lower than SPF30 would require an extra layer of sunblock).

Although this only provides light coverage, but since I've started with retin A, my skin condition has improved dramatically, thus I no longer need heavier coverage foundation. It evens out the redness (from retin...) and that is basically what I need.

Again, because of the retin, my skin is dry and alot of the foundation that I've used tend to grab in those dry areas (especially around my nose and mouth), but with this foundation (or tinted moisturizer), it didn't happen.


  1. Hey there! It is a pity this was discontinued, as your review is excellent!! Thanks so much for this great review, I have never tried it.
    XOXO from a new follower,

  2. Dear Catanya, I was googling for this product and found this webpage that still carries certain discontinued drugstore product (I intend to stock up), and if you are interested check it out.

    Thanks for following my blog
