A number of brands now have these tinted moisturisers to save using moisturiser then foundation. This has been around for some time and I have used it for some years now. I find it is a little dark for winter use but works really well when I have a bit of colour or even to give my face a bit of colour.
The texture is smooth and glides on really easily either as I do using my fingers or a little sponge or as some use a brush. I find the coverage even and it lats well without going patchy.
It has a pleasant scent but not really strong just nice enough to smell as you apply it. It comes off really easily with a good cleanser and I have had no skin problems when using this.
I am not wowed by the packaging for this though as I prefer a pump really.
I have owned both shades of this tinted moisturiser by Benefit and for a long time they were my favourites. Sadly there are only two shades, light and dark but for me both were suitable depending on the time of year and my skin tone at the time. The moisturiser contains vitamin E and SPF15 and there is a slight scent to the product which does remind me of a pleasant scented sun protection cream. The cream has a medium consistency and although it looks dark from the tube the colour does even out on the skin. For my olive skin tone this is an excellent match and it evens out pigmented areas and hides mild blemishes effectively. For lighter skin tones this would not be suitable
The formula is very conditioning on the skin and I suffered no breakouts or greasiness from this product at all. There is a slight dewy look to the skin after application so if you are looking for a matte finish you may not like this product. The soft squeeze aluminium tube is long lasting and good value and I would use this cream daily in the summer when I did not want a heavy foundation. For me the results from this tinted moisturiser are fantastic and I have no doubt I will return to this again at some point when I have finished experimenting with others
This tinted moisturiser is so easy to apply,i applied it with my fingertips but you can also apply with a foundation brush too.
I like the look of this but did find it a little dark for my complexion.
It applies well and looks great on the skin giving you a nice heathy glow which stays out most of the day.
great for summer when you want an effective but light coverage or as a primer.
comes in great metal tube too.
