I was excited to get this, with the hopes that it would work in the ways that I have seen the compact work (in video reviews). Unfortunately, it does not work for medium or darker skin. I am a lighter-skinned black woman, and this made me look ashy and grey--even though this forumula seems SUPER pink (bleh). I'm not even sure how many white-skinned women would find this complimentary. I will finish the tube that I have (using it during workouts and the like--no where I care about being seen). But, if you are looking for a sunscreen and are a woman with any kind of melanin, try something else. I'm sorry that this *continues* to be an issue, especially considering that the fast majority of women in the world have brown skin.
