Not for fair skin
I tried this product to see what everyone was talking about. I typically choose foundations in the lightest tones, so I selected this product in fair. I found that it didn't compliment my skin tone no matter how little I used or how much I blended it. Aside from the available tints it comes in, it seemed to be a perfectly good product.

So great for glowing, protected skin while travelling
This is a lifesaver for me. Normal sunscreens play havoc with my skin, leaving it shiny and with loads of breakouts. This not only protects from the sun, it doesn't make my skin break out AND it leaves a flawless glowing finish on the skin. Perfect!

Radiant Protection
This stuff is gorgeous. I always use SPF before going outside and this product gives a beautiful glow to the skin. The fair shade is just a little too dark for me but I love to use it to warm up my skin and give me a sunkissed glow without the damage.

one of my favorite products
I am not a makeup kind of girl...or in fact the least is better. But recently I've been realizing the necessity of daily application of sunblocks and wanting to look presentable for certain occasions by covering up some blemishes and dark spots without the fuss of primer, foundation and powder and so on. I got to try this product when I got it as a sample packet ordering other Kate's products and LOVED how smooth and light it went on but still provided a great coverage. The best part is it looks natural like it is my own skin and it gives me that healthy "glow" like my skin is well rested and well hydrated. Also the SPF coverage is a big plus. I have few other products including this CC cream from Kate that are my essentials now.

This is all you need for light days since its like spf and lightweight foundation in one. I wear this a few times a month when my skin is clearest as it doesnt have full coverage like my regular foundation. I get hormonal acne flareups during the month so i cant wear this everyday. As for colors I find the light to be too dark and although the fair is a hair light i just add a touch of powder bronzer and im good.
