I wanted to love this... I was pretty excited when Sephora was selling small, sample-sized tubes and snapped it right up...
Made me break out worse than I have in many, many years... To be fair, we were in the midst of a heat wave, so that probably didn't help, but as soon as I stopped using this (and i wasn't even using it full-strength - i was mixing it in with my regular moisturizer) the breakouts stopped...
Sad day as it did make my skin a bit more even, but not worth it - what's the point of more even if you need to put concealer all over your face?
This is my go-to product for daytime make-up. Smoothed on over serum, concealer if necessary, and then locked down with powder. I find I do need to re-powder once or twice over the course of the day, but I love the sheer-yet-calming coverage. I went for the plain tinted moisturiser over the illuminating version because I have what I think are slightly enlarged pores and an oily t-zone. I wear 'nude', and will continue to repurchase.
Packaging wise, it's awful. That huge lid does not screw on properly so seepage is a real issue - especially on planes! It's gotten to the point where I now decant product into a small tube (Muji I love you) before flying.
I love this tinted moisturizer! ^^ I work in a hospital, so I'm always running and doing busy work, and yet (with a tiny bit of powder) this stays on my face all 7 hours without any slipping or sliding. It doesn't make my skin oily either, nor does it dry it out. It evens out skin tone very well, and gives me a nice glow. It wont cover blemishes, so you need a separate concealer for that. It's lightweight, and I don't feel it all day. It doesn't irritate my skin, and I even fall asleep with it sometimes and it's never given me acne. It also feels very moisturizing. The only thing that bugs me is the packaging, sometimes I'll squeeze the tube a little and a larger amount than what I need will come out...it gets messy sometimes. But I still love it and it's my perfect summertime tinted moisturizer.
I keep buying the little travel size version of this in Sand instead of buying the regular sized bottle, because I'm an idiot. I could probably go up a shade in this lotion, but it's so sheer that it gives a nice glow without making your face look cakey. I can use it instead of foundation or even with foundation and the results are still wonderful for me. The smell doesn't really bother me, maybe because I'm used to using Aveeno lotion which is kind of strong. It moisturizes without feeling oily; my skin just feels super soft. I gave it a 4 because there's this face lotion that's even better-- Caudalie with the tint (I just tried looking at Sephora.com but can't find it-- I received it as a free sample last summer) but of course it's like$3,000 so that's not an option for me! Packaging doesn't bother me.
I went to the Laura Mercier counter planning on buying another tube of the silk creme foundation I had been using. Once there, the worker convinced me to buy the Oil Free SPF 20 Tinted Moisturizer for the summer months. This product made my face break out like no other. I was very disappointed and will not buy again.
When I wasn't ready to shell out 43CAD for the regular size foundation, I checked out the small sized to-go versions. It was only offered in Nude or Sand. Luckily Nude matches my NC25 skin otherwise I wouldn't have tried it. Given that I have dry skin, I love the dewy, sheer look it gives. The only thing that bothers me is the packaging - the inner part of the cap doesn't really touch/seal the product, allowing it to seep out a tad.
I love this, my skin is sensitive, can gt both dry and oily and this is great! It evens out my skin tone and provides a nice amount of moisture. The colour stays even throughout the day and provides a great base for bush and bronzer.
Easy to apply with my Body Shop kabuki brush, just the right amount of coverage. However, it would be a good idea to set this with a powder/possibly use primer underneath as it doesn't last long on warm/humid days.
I was so excited when I finally got this. I was disappointed. It smells like chemicals. If I am correct this is suppose to be a tinted moisturise not a liquid foundation. It was so expensive for a product that was not even that good. I wanted to like this but I couldn't . I found that my skin itched quite a little when I was wearing this however I'm not quite sure if the cause was by this tinted moisturizer. I would never buy this again.
Dried out face and made it itch. Gave me acne too after just one usage without much application. Lightest shade still too dark for me. Not a fan.
