Review by briloveschocolatebunnies
I'm really confused why this one has great ratings and then the one that comes in the tube is not so great? It's the same tinted moisturizer- just two different dispenser types. Anyway, this stuff has a great finish and looks beautiful. BUT...give it two weeks. It is a lot more apparent on the reviews on the tube version of this, but you will notice some people come back to edit their reviews because of the development of cystic acne. Below, I listed the ingredients. You will notice the ingredient "Ethylhexyl Palmitate." If you google this, you will find that this chemical is EXTREMELY comedogenic. Unfortunately it is also this lipid derivative that allows for a very nice, smooth finish. *sigh* It looks great and is comparable with the Laura Mercier on looks but as far as acne goes, if your prone at all, this is not good. The neutrogena skin enhancer will have to do. I gave this 2 stars instead of 1, because this tinted moisturizer does not technically claim to be non-comedogenic. They also do list their ingredients online, which is more than I can say for a lot of companies. Contains: Active Ingredients - Octinoxate and Avobenzone.
