I purchased this because it was cheap and Covergirl usually makes pretty good products given the cost. But, this moisturizer was overly greasy, it did not go on evenly, and it caused my skin to break out after using it two or three times.

Cover Girl CG smoothers

I bought this more for the tinting abilities than the SPF or moisturizer but I have come to love both just as much as I love tint in it. I get up and it is a rush to get one kid on the bus and the other to pre-school so I needed something I could put on quickly and look put together. The tint in this moisturizer provides just enough coverage so my skin looks great but does not have that make-up look to it. After having it on for a few hours I realized my skin felt softer and looked better overall. Even after I washed it off my skin remained soft. The SPF is wonderful for park days or just when I'm outside for awhile. I can look good and get the protection I need from the sun. Effectiveness The added tint adds the right amount of coverage and the moisturizer really softens the skin up. The added SPF is just a nice bonus. Ease of Application I put a few dots of this all over my face and then rub it in making sure to go to my throat so that area gets tint too.

I do not like the tint in this because it looks unnatural.

I made the mistake of purchasing this after a friend recommend it. I thought that a tinted moisturizer might be a good idea because it was like killing two birds with one stone in that I would get a moisturizer that also took the place of my foundation or powder. Unfortunately, this didn't work out for me. I have very pale skin and usually have to get ivory or porcelain ivory foundation. I used a light variety of this tinted moisturizer and it still made my face look orange. I do not have an orange or even brown/tan complexion. I am extremely pale and cream colored. I thought if I went as light as I could with this then it wouldn't show up so bad and my face would have an even complexion. While this did give me an even and toned looked, I was not a natural color of tan. I looked orange. I just don't recommend using this unless you plan of putting something over it. I tried to add some foundation over top of it and that seemed to help but the purpose of the tinted moisturizer was to eliminate the need of a foundation or powder. Effectiveness I'm torn on this because it did smooth and moisturize like it is supposed to but it left my skin with an undesirable color and stain. I know that it is a tinted moisturizer but there was no natural color. I had an orange tone to my skin and I am fairly pale and translucent. Ease of Application It's easy to apply. All I had to do to apply this product was add a few drops to my fingertips and smooth around my face. This does stain your finger tips though so I made sure to wash my hands quickly. Scent I'm kind of neutral on the smell. It smells more like a liquid foundation than a moisturizer but it isn't really unpleasant.

Keep In Mind it's Not a Foundation

I remember when CoverGirl CG Smoothers Tinted Moisture SPF 15 first come out in stores I was one of the first to try it. I thought a tinted moisturizer, how genius is that, it contains sunscreen protection, and has a tint to it. I have tried a variety of shades since my skin complexion is a different shade with each season. Applying this moisturizer is simple it has color so I am able to see where I have applied to my face. It's actually very light on the skin and absorbs well, never leaving my face feeling sticky. It adds a hint of shade, a touch of color, where it blends into your skin tone. I have redness around my nose and cheeks, this product helps to even out my skin tone if I apply more than one coat to my skin. I'm able to wear foundation over this moisturizer so this product can take the place of my usual moisturizer. On really hot days when foundation is not reasonable because of the heat I will apply loose powder over this tinted cream. This really is a good product, it comes in a variety of shades and can replace your regular moisturizer. I think this product does 3 jobs, it protects with SPF, evens out skin tone, and replaces moisturizer. Can't loose with this product. Effectiveness Just remember it's not a foundation, don't expect to replace your foundation.

I love tinted moisturizers in the summer!

In the summer time I do not like to wear heavy makeup. CoverGirl Smoothers SPF 15 Tinted Moisture is a great product. My skin doesn't need a lot of extra moisture in the summer time. If I use the moisturizers I use in the winter my face gets oily and breaks out. I like that this product has SPF in it and it evens out skin tone. Another bonus is that this is budget friendly. Effectiveness If you are looking for a lot of coverage this product is not for you. Fortunately I don't ever seem to have a big problem with blemishes. However, since my skin is 40 years old I do have a couple sun spots and freckles. If I put this on it provides just the right amount of hydration while evening out my skin. I then put a dab of concealer directly on any sun spots I have and set with powder. It is not greasy or heavy which is perfect for summer. Plus heavier foundations really seems to make my fine lines more noticeable. Ease of Application This is very easy to apply. It blends nicely. I use my fingers or a makeup sponge to apply this and blend. Scent It really doesn't have a scent.

Pretty good product

I had likes and dislikes about the product. Overall, it was pretty good. If you can't afford anything else then if day just go ahead and get it. If you're looking for something high-quality, I would go with something else. It was a bit greasy; however, it blended in pretty well. It also matched my skin tone pretty good.

Light coverage, moisturizer, and sunscreen in one step

5

I'm not sure whether to call this product a light foundation or a moisturizer, because it does both very well. It isn't going to cover blemishes, but it does even my skin tone and give me a fresh finished look. It goes on smooth, feels great on my skin, doesn't clog my pores, and doesn't feel caked. For a little more coverage I can add a light layer of powder and it helps to set the tinted moisturizer as well. It doesn't have a shiny artificial look and the tone matches my skin very well. It blends into the jawline fabulously and even works as a primer for eyeshadow. The moisturizing effect is just a bonus. My skin can get pretty dry in the winter and some foundations will look flaky, this one doesn't and it helps combat the dryness as well as protect my skin from the wind. In the summer I get the added benefit of the SPF 15 and when it starts to 'melt' off with the rest of my make up I don't have to worry about it looking streaky or splotchy like other foundations do. I don't think I'll be going back to traditional foundations after finding this product. Effectiveness Great for light coverage and evening out my redness across my cheeks. Gives me a finished look without looking fake. Ease of Application A little goes a long way. I just use my fingers to massage it across my face. Can be put on a little thicker in trouble areas if need be without looking splotchy. Scent It does not put off any scent that I can tell.

Decent moisturizer but not much coverage

I've used Cover Girl tinted moisturizer since I was in high school, but I find it's just not the right product for me anymore. I used to have great skin and when I was going to the beach or in a hurry, quickly apply tinted moisturizer to my skin would give it a dewy, healthy look. I did not use it everyday because I had oily skin and it was just too much. It did an excellent job of moisturizing my skin in the winter, or after exfoliating, and I like that it has an SPF to give me a bit of protection from UV rays. It's always been very reasonably priced and is sold at drug stores and mass merchants, so I continued to buy this Cover Girl tinted moisturizer over the years. My skin now is less oily, so I appreciate the moisturizing aspect, but the tint does little to blur my skin's imperfections. I instead use a different brand's BB cream because I need more coverage on dark spots. I still toss my tube of Cover Girl tinted moisturizer in my beach bag because it looks better on my face than plain old white sunscreen, but other than that I don't really use it anymore. Decent product if you have good skin already, but if you need more coverage you'll want to try something else.

Not All That

This is a product that may benefit your skin if you already have great skin but if you are like me, I don't have the greatest skin, and this product did very little to make my skin look flawless and blemish less. I tried wearing a very light layer and I tried wearing it heavy. It isn't a thick cream and does fill light on the skin, I guess I expected more out of this product. I have tried a few different bb creams and I think this one is in the middle. I like that this product didn't break my skin out when wearing it daily. I had a hard time finding the right shade and wish more for a wider variety. My daughter who is 13 tried this and loved it! Her skin is already blemish free so it worked well to hide a pimple here and there. The price is better than other bb creams but I guess you get what you pay for. I would recommend if you have good skin to begin with. It isn't the best but it maybe worth trying.

Works fairly well and has nice coverage but feels thick.

I haven't used BB cream a whole lot, I've only used on other brand, but I wanted something that had a lot of different qualities for my skin and not just regular foundation. When I used this product, I thought it felt very thick, which I wasn't too happy with. I was hoping that it would be a little bit thinner and light. Otherwise, this had nice coverage to it.
