Brand Claims:
Smooths skin, Improves Clarity, Provides Radiance, Hydrating, Dermatologist tested, Ophthalmologist tested, Non-acenegic. Boosts the look of dull flat or tired skin with nutritious vitamins and a mega-dose of green tea. Brightens and clarifies with iridescent particles and antioxidants. Adds the softest glow to the skin in sunlight to spotlight.

While most of these seems to on point I would not say that this product smooths skin or improves clarity. I find it tends to emphasize acne texture.

This can be used as a moisturizer, all over face primer, subtle highlighter, or mixed into another product. Also works well as a layering product for highlight, which is something I use it for quite a bit. My favorite product to layer this with is Mac’s Cream Colour Base in Luna.

Wear time:
I prefer to wear this on key areas of my face such as cheekbones, bridge of nose and cupids bow. The wear time in these areas is at least 10 hours for me. I don't like wearing it all over my face as it tends to emphasize acne texture and become oily on my t zone.

I would say that it does give the skin added hydration but as someone with dry skin I would not be able to use this as a stand alone moisturizer.

I find myself reaching for this even if I’m not wearing a full face of makeup. I like that it can give you a dewy skin look with little to no effort.

I still have quite a bit of product left after using it for 4 months and I do plan on repurchasing it. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a subtle glow in a world of blinding highlights.
