Naturally sheer color. Mirror and reflect your natural skin tone with Skin Beneficial Tinted Moisturizer. This lightweight tinted moisturizer uses microprism powders to impart an even, healthy glow. While highlighting your true color, it also delivers skin-beneficial vitamins A and E, oil-free moisture, and SPF 15 to help prevent environmental damage. It is transfer-resistant, long-wearing, talc-free and petroleum-free
I chose the "Honey" shade because it's a better match to my skin tone. I am slightly disappointed that the international Nu Skin website offers 4 shades while the Philippine site offers only 2. Nu Skin if you are reading this, how could you categorize the whole Philippine population into only 2 shades?!
Moving on, the consistency of this product is very thin and might be drying for some. Personally even with my combi skin, I still slap on a lightweight gel moisturizer (either a sunblock gel or Celeteque's water-based gel moisturizer) prior to application because it can get really drying at times. The thin, watery consistency also means that it dries fast so you have to apply a little at a time, blending well so you don't end up with streaks.
Also if I don't use anything before I spread it on, I feel pins and needles on my face after I sweat. But that's just me. If you're using the Nu Skin TM as well, I'd love to hear your thoughts on it :)
In terms of coverage, it does a better job than Balm Shelter and stays color true the whole day. It is transfer-resistant so you can wear this with your crisp white cotton top without worry and (I cannot stress this enough) it is very, very lightweight which is perfect for our weather. And just when it can't get any better, this product also helps minimize oil and has SPF 15. Yay right? So its performance is well worth the hefty price tag. On the downside, it does have a strong [chemical] sunblock scent.
Plus points: The box is sealed shut both ways so you're assured that the product is brand new. The pump bottle also features a "lock" that prevents accidental pressing of the pump.
Remember my post on Trafaluc? I used Nu Skin's TM that day and is how it looks like with indoor lighting:
Naite cellphone which as you all know just has a very basic camera. Pfft. But the coverage looks pretty good right? :)
So what about you, any other good tinted moisturizers you'd like to share/recommend?
You know what I'm lemming right now? Korres' Natural Watermelon tinted moisturizer! I'd totally flip when this comes to the Philippines. I've read online that the texture and finish is similar to Nu Skin's but the clincher is: it contains all natural ingredients! *Kira faints*
