I love this because it is slightly heavier than a tinted moisturizer, but not so much that I feel like I'm wearing a mask. The addition of SPF 15 is great, as I like to have on as much skin protection as possible. Some TMs offer plenty of hydration, yet are lackluster in the coverage department. Nude and Improved truly balances these traits, offering the best of both worlds. I have this in 'Light Linen', which is perfect for my skin tone, and it blends seamlessly into my skin while still allowing my freckles to come through. I also love that it's made without parabens, pthalates, or other persistent preservatives. I think it comes in 5 shades and at around $20 (US), it's worth a try.
