What e.l.f cosmetics say:
This lightweight and hydrating formula is breathable and provides anti-aging sun protection with UVA/UVB SPF 20. Achieve even skin tone and naturally radiant skin with this moisturizing sheer tint of color. The smooth formula enhances your complexion with the nourishing key ingredients Aloe, Cucumber and Vitamins A, C and E.
The packaging of the tinted moisturiser is very sleek and compact, it easily fits into a makeup bag and even in your handbag for on-the-go if you like to touch-up your makeup during the day. Application is easy, I have used my fingers, e.l.f's stipple brush and a foundation brush, all methods resulted in a flawless application and well moisturised skin. Using this both with and without my daily moisturiser, I do recommend that you use your moisturiser anyway, regardless of your skin type. My reasoning for this is because I felt that when I applied this on top of moisturiser it blended into the skin better and lasted longer throughout the day. My skin also had a good "drink" of moisture so it was happy!

It does not fade throughout the day but sometimes does rub off when I've accidentally touched my face - ever so slightly though. The finish is one that would be expected of a good tinted moisturiser, it is lightweight, fresh, provides an even-skintone, a very natural look and some radiance. It sits very comfortably on the skin and the complexion is enhanced. The SPF given is 20, however generally a generous application is required to achieve the given factor, another reason to apply extra sunscreen before! The value of this is good I think, but not great, 20ml lasted me for about 3weeks daily and I have a little left. I wouldn't want to have to repurchase every 3 weeks, so a little more product would be appreciated!
Overall: I think this is a fantastic tinted moisturiser for such a low price, even better when e.l.f have offers on saving us money! The claims e.l.f cosmetics make are definitely correct. It has a few tiny issues but that may just be me being very picky, I give this an 8/10 and definitely recommend it!
