I have sensitive skin with hormonial acne and some scarring on the cheeks. After finding a lot of good products for my skin, it started clearing up and I went on the hunt to downsize my makeup-products to get a more natural look. I have never ever before this been able to use something as light as a tinted moisturizer, so I wanted something which wasn't too sheer, but still looked natural and that nourished my skin (if I get dry I break out more).
The Hydra Zen moisturizer ticks all my boxes. It covers well but still looks natural. I use it over Shisheido's Refining Makeup Primer, which gives it a bit more staying power and set it with Bare Minerals mineral veil. Still, during summer it feels a bit "much" and gets a tad oily after a while. I am very happy with it though, as it doesn't clog my pores and makes me glow.
I have repurchased this product around 4 times. The colour (no. 1) is perfect for my pale skin. The coverage is great for me - not too heavy, not too sheer. I find the older I get (in my 30's) the better it is to use a foundation that isn't too heavy (otherwise my fine lines show - eek!) Even when I get the odd spot of acne, I use this with a bit of Lancome concealer and I'm good to go. I will continue to repurchase this.
I love this product. It does what it says: IT MOISTURISES and SOOTHS . Coverage looks very natural. It evens my sking. Its also very wearable, comfortable, my skin feels like in comfy pyjamas all day. Since I started using it instead of normal makeup, my skin got much better I noticed. I put it on my skin after the morning shower without using any moisturiser before and even without looking too closely into the mirror. I use two shades simultanously on different parts of the face: the number 1( naturel) and 3 ( dore). Dore is certainly not too dark, especially on the nose and cheekbones. Both shades work wery well for me. Tube lasts for very long, It is worth its price ( I paid €32 ). I stick to it, its my must-have.
I love tinted moisturizer because I find foundation just too heavy for my face. So I asked for a sample of this product from the store because of high rating reviews. The first time I used it I felt it was too greasy for my skin. Put a pressed powder over it looked ok afterwards. But I don't see that nice glowy healthy effect I get from kanebo tinted moisturizer. Will not purchase this one.
Great, great, great, tinted moisturizer. Leaves my skin looking fresh and not very made up, but still very good looking! :-)
Dore is a great shade, certainly not too dark, despite its name. It does absolutely not leave your skin with a sticky feeling, which I hate.
Love this product! I've never really liked using foundations as they always feel and/or look obvious to me. However, as I'm not blessed with a naturally flawless complexion (it's often quite ruddy) I need to use something to even it out. So I tried various tinted moisturisers and mineral powders. Many of them were good, but not great.
As my skin has become drier over the years I tend to prefer tinted moisturisers over mineral powders. This is by far the best one I've found to date. I've also tried Bobbi Brown (too rich) and Laura Mercer (good but not as good as this) I use the natural shade which is a very neutral color; most other products and shades are either too orange or too pink for me. The texture is extremely natural looking but at the same time evens my skin tone. One should note however, it isn't as moisturising as other tinted moisturisers, rather, it leans more towards a matte finish.
I think I'll be using this for years as it's easy to apply (fingers only) and I never have any telltale lines.
One more thing. As you don't need to use too much, the tube lasts a very long time. I've had mine now for almost a year.
It gives just enough coverage! And it moisterizes my skin very well! Really good stuff
divine, no other words for it, i have acne and rather oily, but this tinted moisturizer really complemented my skin, for people who have acne this is a great alternative, cuz it even is improving my skin, also it is very natural, just a bit of concealer where needed, hydrazen and then powder and your skin looks beautiful !
I love this product!!! It feels great on the skin and lasts all day on my normal skin. I usually dont use TMs since they tend to feel oily and dont last long, this is so not the case here. This product sort of feels like a combination two things: a light cream and Lancome's teinte idole ultra foundation...it even smells the same- and i so love that foundation!!! As for the finish, it makes me look dewy but not oily, radiant but not shiny...like my own skin only far better. I blot a little during the day and my face looks really fresh. Oh and i also dust a little Givenchy prisme libre on my tzone and dont have to reapply at all. It is simply perfect so far! Will update if anything changes :)
