Good tinted moisturiser

I was pretty excited when this product came out as it sounded like a fantastic idea and is at a nice accessible price.
-easy, blendable colour that actually matched my skin (light)!!! I'm pretty fair skinned but have some pigmentation spots that make finding the right colour difficult.
- toned downed redness - on lazy days I feel I could just use this instead of foundation and it evened out my complexion quite well with just a little bit of spot concealing
-SPF - loved using this on holidays a few weeks ago instead of moisturiser+sunscreen+makeup which gets to be just a bit too much when you're trying to relax and stress less

Didnt love:
Smell - this stuff has an...interesting smell to it straight out of the tube which was a little off-putting. Seemed to go away quickly once applied.
Dry but greasy? - I dont know how to explain this properly. While it did moisturise, it didnt do a great job and my skin would still get a bit dry. While that was going on, after a few hours, it feels rather heavy on my face and sticky/greasy. I guess its sitting on top of the skin instead of being absorbed as much as moisturiser would be?
Did nothing for blemishes - I don't have a lot of blemishes, but I do get a few. I didn't see a noticeable difference using this compared to my regular moisturiser/foundation

Overall this isnt a bad product and I would probably buy again. The price is great. It's perfect for when you're being a bit lazy or don't want to go crazy with a full face of foundation but still want some coverage. It smells a bit funny and its not going to be great for anyone with really dry or oily skin types. Not the miracle it claims to be but definitely worth a try.
