I tend to opt for regular facial moisturisers rather than anything tinted, but I was easily persuaded to give this a go as I came across it in a pound store.
The Anti-Blemish Tinted Moisturiser is one I''ve more recently come across and it''s sold in a small silver 30ml tube with a translucent white screw cap on the bottom. It''s available in 3 shades: Light, medium and dark.
The product is ?formulated for oily/combination skin'' and it''s designed to do four things essentially: 1. Mattify skin and reduce shine 2. Help treat/prevent problem skin where spots are concerned 3. Provide medium coverage of spots/blemishes 4. Moisturise. So, it aims to do quite a few things all in one, which sounds good to me because it''s far more convenient to use one product before work in the morning than a moisturiser, spot cream and concealer!
It''s simple to use: squeeze a small amount out and blend over your face evenly for ?natural''-looking coverage. I don''t find this has a particularly strong smell to it, which I thought it may have with the witch hazel. What surprised me, however, was the thickness. When using a small amount I found I ended up having to go back for more because it didn''t ?glide'' over my face.. I was able to get even coverage with this eventually, but the ?light'' colour still seemed a bit heavy for my very pale skin.
I''d like a shade lighter than light though; it''s not overly dark for a light shade, I think it''s more a case of me just having skin like a ghost. If you have light blemishes and you just want a light coverage then this would probably suffice. Any more than that, ie. More pronounces spots / dark under eye circles and you''ll probably want a ?proper'' concealer.
In terms of moisturisation, whilst this didn''t dry my skin out I don''t feel it was particularly moisturising either. Did it help with reducing/eliminating blemishes? Not that I can tell, but it did help to mattify my skin. My face wasn''t as shiny afterwards so I''d say it absorbed (or covered!) the oil and shine, which would probably help on a daily basis towards healthier looking skin.
All in all, it''s a convenient product to do a few things for your skin, and very reasonably priced when I bought it at a quid. However, I wasn''t a big fan of the consistency and the ?light'' shade just wasn''t quite light enough for me. I''d still recommend giving it a go if you don''t have super pale skin but want something for light coverage and reducing shine, it just unfortunately won''t win top place in my skin care routine.
This is a review of Witch naturally clear anti blemish tinted moisturiser. Whilst I am quite spot free, I was looking for some more light foundation to use on days when my skin felt a bit dry (I usually use mineral make up) so I could multi task as I went about my day!
The purchase decision
I spotted the 30 ml tube of this and saw it marked as 'new' which I never can resist although I don't think it's that new a product on the market, just probably clearance stock as I shop in Home Bargains things are not always as new as they may seem.
The tinted moisturiser is packaged in an attractive silver tube with a screw top lid. I think it looks really nice and it's a 30 ml tube so will last me for ages. I like squeezy products as I think you can squeeze out every last drop rather than a glass jar where there seems to be lots of waste. I have been known to chop the end of the tube off when I can squeeze no more and get the last application out with a cotton bud!
This product claims to be anti blemish with witch hazel extract which will mattify the skin and has antibacterial actives. I chose the shade 02 which is medium and it's also fragrance free, oil free and dermatologically tested. The company Witch have been in business for more than 40 years.
I find a small 5p sized blob is more than enough to give face and neck coverage and I usually use a sponge to apply wet foundation. I was expecting it to smell a bit as I have had a bottle of witch hazel in the past and the smell was quite strong but I could not detect this smell in the product at all which is probably a good thing. Coverage wise I was pleasantly surprised by the colour it made my skin look a little like I had a few days' sun but not like a fortnight in the Caribbean! Golden skin is nice to have all year round and I found it warmed up the deathly pallor I often have early in the morning.
I paid just 99p for this product in Home Bargains and can't say I have seen it anywhere else so it may be a bit hard to find.
I really like this tinted moisturiser, and whilst I still like to use mineral make up I will happily use this on days when I want a light coverage without looking too pasty and at least it is moisturising my skin at the same time. I think I will buy a couple more tubes next time I am out shopping as at this price you can't go wrong and it's handy to have this available if I ever have a break out and want to treat a spot with a product that will fight it.
Witch tinted moisturiser
I bought this recently to keep my skin moisturised but without having to use any heavy make up. I have always liked the witch products and wasn't surprised to read that the products have been on the go for more than forty years.
WHAT IS IT?
this is part of the new cosmetics range, designed to target and cover imperfections. Based on the witch hazel ingredient along wit antibacterial actives, it will apparently control shine and mattify the skin whilst providing a medium coverage and moisturising skin.
PRODUCT AND PACKAGING...
The moisturiser comes in a 30ml tube wi a screw on off lid and all of the instructions and information on the back. When I unscrew the lid a little squeeze to the tube dispenses some of the product. It is available in light medium and dark and I have he medium which when first dispensed looks quite dark. It is nice and creamy but also very light in consistency and when rubbed into the skin it is actually lighter in colour than when first dispensed.
USING THE PRODUCT...
A small amount of the product should be applied to the skin and blended using fingertips. I find that a little of the product dis enough to give a nice coverage and it does blend easily without leaving any lines and without looking obvious. In fact, I think that when blended because it is nice and light is does kind of blend with my own skin colour.
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY...
The moisturiser is available in chemists and supermarkets and also online. I bought mine from superdrug and because there was £2 off the RRP it cost only £3.99
This does blend nice and easily and provides a light coverage; I wouldn't say that it's medium as advertised on the blurb. When first applied it make my skin feel well moisturised and it leaves my skin tone looking even. The only problem is that it doesn't last very long and for all day co age it does need to be reapplied. It's isn't difficult to do because its a moisturiser and because it blends so easily it can be applied like a moisturiser to keep skin looking even and feeling moisturised.
For every day even skin tone and for moisturised healthy skin I would recommend this.
