I have used this moisturizer for a few years now and love it! I see someone saying that it's greasy but it's certainly not creasy at all ! it's very light but gives a nice natural cover on your faces. Yes, you have to watch out that you don't 'squeeze' too much of the cream on your hand, if you do, you have to wash your hand(s) with a soap. You don't want to waste it either, so just be careful. I'm Scandinavian and use 'Beach Glow' colour all year round. Great natural product...and paraben free, which is very important, since paraben has been found in breast cancer!
I’m happy I waited a bit to review this because when I first received this moisturizer I immediately thought it was much too dark for my red headed pale/freckled complexion and thought I would need to immediately buy the lighter shade (I ordered the second lightest shade). However after using it consistently I think it blends decently and I got it in the first place to give me a slight tint and so because my face is always a bit lighter than my body in the summer due to keeping it out of the sun, this color actually looks natural on my face after using a beauty blender with it or clean hands. I won’t use it in the winter because I will definitely be too pale for it, but for a summer tint when I have a bit more color on my skin, and after getting used to it in combination with other makeup I think it gives me a healthy glow! I try to use it sparingly and add on only what I need so it doesn’t become too thick and I personally use a separate moisturizer beneath it as I have dry skin and need it. I use it for cloudier days as I have a higher SPF tint for sunny days to protect my face, but I could also put a face SPF beneath this if I wanted to.
For reference, I have pink undertones, pale skin, but a warmish overall complexion. Dry skin.
As for coverage I think it’s a light/medium. I have used lighter BB creams but I wouldn’t say it’s heavy either. I don’t need to cover much up besides dark circles which if I’m being lazy I think it’s fine for if I don’t want to use a full eye coverup. But if you needed to cover up imperfections I personally think it could be thick enough but everyone’s skin is different.
I suppose if I wanted to be picky, I could mention the bottle could be a bit better as I’m sometimes scared of it gooping out too fast when I am trying to only get a small amount to apply, but end of day I’m just careful and I don’t think that should stop anyone from purchasing a good clean product that has a natural SPF in it.
*As a side note, I had to wear a face mask for an extended period of time outside and it was quite warm out so I was worried my makeup would be dripping or streaking under my mask, but after an hour or more I took off my face mask and my makeup hadn’t budged so take that as you will, I was personally thrilled with its staying power.
I’m 64 years old and although this is a perfect cover and colour it makes my skin look very old. Every line on my face was accentuated rather than concealed. I was hoping for a more ‘moisturizing’ affect. Instead it was very drying. Also, it was difficult to wash off. It took three washes and a face cloth to get it off my skin. I started out using Leilani’s Hawaiian Cleanse but then switched to Andalou’s Apricot Probiotic Cleansing Milk just to get it out of my pores and lines! Very disappointing as I love what it professes to do!
I use the tinted moisturizer every day. It has amazing coverage on its own, and if I need a bit more coverage, I just use some highlighting Translucent Mineral Powder. Amazing products.
This is my favorite !! I love how my skin feels and looks wearing this
