I love and have every confidence in Ultrasun. However this formula is very sticky and way too dark. It is too much like a heavy foundation which cant be blended smoothly and evenly into the skin. The overall finish I found was patchy and grey looking. I thought being tinted it would just give a sheer pop of colour. I am in a light to medium shade of foundation and even with a summer tan this product was very dark. I purchased 2 sets, one for my teenage niece and its totally unsuitable for her. Sorry but it will be returned. Back to the original factor 30 anti aging formula

I cannot believe I haven't tried this before now! So many wonderful advances in sun care nowadays. All summer I have been using the SPF30 (and SPF50 when working outside) and then a BB cream
Today when I received my tinted 30 I rushed to put it on and I am so delighted, with a bit of lippy, shadow and blusher I was really pleased, and this will be my everyday face for the rest of the summer. I was not worried by its initial dark appearance as many BB creams are like this, and they adjust after a little while. To dilute it with an untinted version as suggested by other reviewers also sounds a great idea. Love it!!

I hadn't tried this tinted version before but it came in a recent TSV so I was keen to try it, I love it! For those who say it is too dark, it does look quite scary when it comes out of the bottle but, as another reviewer said, I think the trick is to use more than you think you need, rub it into the hands and then massage over the whole face and neck area. I have fair skin but it just makes me look like I have a natural sun-kissed tan, not orangey or over the top like some fake tan products can look. It's so good that I can skip foundation and just use this alone for every day, or if I'm going out I just use a tiny bit of concealer where I need it and job done! Really quick and easy to apply, very moisturising, gives a lovely natural colour and a fantastic glow to the skin. I wouldn't want to be without this now, it will be my summer must-have product from now on. I know this product is really all about the SPF but to me that's an added benefit, and you have the peace of mind (as with all Ultrasun products) that you're totally protected all day long. Amazing value in the twin pack too :-)

Rated 3 out of 5 by Lu44 Only suitable if you already have a tan
The colour is way too dark for anyone with a fair or medium complexion. I'm a medium beige in Bare Minerals I can only wear this with a tan. I bought the tinted/ normal duo and mix them to get a better colour. The colour also comes off on your clothes ( a bit like your foundation would) - so put it on after you pull on a t-shirt/top etc. Ultrasun should consider making a lighter version. Apart from the colour, this gives great protection in the sun, perhaps a bit too shiny of face (I do have combination skin).

As a user of other Ulrasun products I was happy to try this but no for me it isn't the one.
I have an olive coloured skin with, at the moment, a light tan but this product came up way too dark and I turned a grey colour - not pretty.
It was easy to apply lightly with my fingertips but once applied it felt really heavy and I felt as though it was dragging my skin down.
I have given it 2* because it was odourless and easy to apply.

When this was been presented the lady said you had to apply moisturiser after the tinted face cream I tired this and it went on blotchy and so everyday for 2 weeks in the July Florida Sun I put my elemis moisturiser on before and it worked great no sign of burning or redness and a nice tan on my skin I don't know why you should use moisturiser after and not before but this certainly worked for me and my face was a lovely colour all of the time will not be without.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CharlottesMum If at first you don't succeed - try again.
I too, as some other reviewers have written, did not seem to get on with this product and I put it away in a drawer. I have, however, revisited the product this summer as I really do need good sun protection when out walking my dog. I have now experimented and mixed it with the un-tinted Face 30 to make my own personal colour. I think the trick is to use more than you think you may need. I have very dry skin and last year, I found it left my skin feeling tight, hence my not wanting to use it, but if you use a little more and don't over rub in, it is comfortable and much more moisturising. My best tip is, after applying all over my face, with a blend to suit my skin, I then put the colour on neat, without mixing, onto my cheeks, temples, tip of chin and nose, to give a sun kissed look. I can happily go out without any other foundation now or need any moisturiser on top. I would not be without this product. It is amazing.

Love this product. I use it instead of foundation with a little finishing powder.
I re-ordered this product but received the original ultrasun face by mistake. I rang QVC customer care and explained that invoice and box had the right item number but wrong product inside box. Would they please get their warehouse to check before sending out any more. Second batch arrived yesterday and again the wrong Ultrasun had been sent.
Just concerned that anyone who does not check their item for a few weeks or who hasn't had the tinted before, won't realise that they have received the wrong thing.
