Let me introduce you to my skin — the short version anyway. I have had acne prone skin since before high school. My skin type is oily and sensitive. It can become combo/oily depending on the weather. I got this tinted moisturizer in the summertime.
The Packaging is a plastic tube that is easy to travel with and put in your makeup bag. There’s a large twist off plastic cap that reveals a spout from which the product squeezes out of; That part can get a bit messy after several uses. The Price is $44. The Formula has the consistency of a thin moisturizer with a faint smell of sunscreen. A swatch on your hand will look opaque, but once it’s blended, it sheers out completely.
This product did not cause any irritation whatsoever. I got this tinted moisturizer with the intention that the product would be lightweight, medium coverage, and oil-free. Two out of three ain’t bad. The medium coverage I wanted is actually a light/sheer coverage. I thought it would be medium coverage because the title says lightweight flawless coverage. When I hear the word ‘flawless,’ I think that my skin will look flawless when I put this on; It’s extremely sheer compared to what I had in mind. I have acne scars and the tinted moisturizer hardly covers them up. A huge upside is that it evens out my overall skin tone.
When I have active break outs, this is not the coverage I want. I might as well just go makeup free, rather than accentuate my blemishes. I think that this is only a really good tinted moisturizer if you’re having a good skin day regardless of acne scars but without active blemishes. I am almost completely done with it. This really is a no-makeup-look in a bottle. You’ll have a healthy look about your skin, and the sheer coverage allows your skin to peek through. This could be good or bad, depending on your skin’s current state. The color I got was good for me when I had a tan. Once the tan faded a little, the color was too dark. Luckily, it isn’t as noticeable with its sheer coverage. I can get away with using it year round if I wanted.
Would I repurchase? Hey, if my skin was always in good condition, I would repurchase this. BUT…I can’t see myself getting that much use out of it if my skin isn’t in a good condition all the time. It feels like a waste for my skin type. If I were to get it, I would get it in a lighter shade. So for now, no, I would not repurchase it.
What’s the best (oil free) tinted moisturizer you’ve ever tried? I’d love to know!
