My dermatologist recommended this to me as a moisturizer since the SPF is so high and it has a tint to it. So far it's been ok, but I feel like even though it's matte, it leaves me kind of greasy in the side areas of the nose. Also, unfortunately for me, the lightest color is still too dark for me :(. It does cover a little more than other tinted moisturizers I've used, which is AWESOME. I have rosacea and I can put it on and feel pretty comfortable with how much is covers. I highly recommend it, however I would recommend seeing if they have samples before you buy it, just to make sure it matches. If you are any paler than I am, you might need to stay clear.
