|The 5 in 1 Dark shade is truly dark|
I tested the Fair shade of this tinted sunscreen, which was a good match for me. It has a yellow tone to it, so I had doubts initially (as I tend to be cool to neutral). However, it looked great when applied and had a subtle balancing effect to redness on my skin. The tint is subtle and the cream spreads smoothly, though I had to use a little more than I expected. The finish was non greasy but left my face a little shiny, so I recommend applying a finishing powder or matte foundation if you want a matte look.
On its own, this has sheer coverage, but it pairs well with lighter mineral foundations. It works well as a primer, and it prolonged the life of my mineral foundations for about 6-8 hours. It comes in five different shades, and the dark was actually dark, which was good to see. The coverage is sheer enough that the match doesn't have to be exact, but the company does offer samples so you can test it out before purchasing a full-sized product. If you don't like any of the colors, they do offer a similar non-tinted 3 in 1 product. Both the 3 in 1 and the 5 in 1 products are $45 for 1.7 oz, which may seem a little expensive. However, given that it serves as a sunscreen, moisturizer, and primer, it seems fairly reasonable, especially if you were buying multiple products in a similar price range.
This product rates a low 1 on the EWG Skin Deep database, which is very gentle. If you're looking for a way to simplify your morning routine while still getting in SPF and a primer, this is a great option.
