Hello! Last week I went shopping and couldn't resist picking this up as I'm a big fan of light tinted moisturizers for the warmer months. I thought this would be great to even out my complexion and I could just pop concealer on the areas where there wasn't quite enough coverage. I was also intrigued by the way the formula changes colour when you apply it to your skin so I thought I would give you the low down.
I think that this product makes a great moisturizer as part of your skincare routine, a great primer and even just on it's own it looks great. The first thing I noticed after applying it to my skin was how well it blended and my skin felt so soft. I applied a bit of concealer under the eyes, around my nose and on any blemishes and, not to sound big headed, but my skin looked great. I also wore this under my Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum in my Outfit of the Day last week as I can find the Serum a little drying on my skin. I think it made a brilliant base as it was so hydrating and I think my make up lasted pretty well throughout the night. I might have forgotten to take my make up off (massive blogger error) but I think it stopped my skin completely freaking out like it normally does (obviously don't leave your make up on over night though, stupid mistake!)
The reason you can use this on it's own is because although it comes out of the bottle a white-cream colour, once you start to blend it into the skin it transforms. The product is a one-colour suits all and although the colour of this matches my skin colour perfectly, I'd say paler gals might have a bit of trouble. I'm about as pale as I get at the moment and I have high hopes for it suiting my bronzed up skin during the summer months.
I definitely would say this has made it into my summer staples in just a week. In the winter I prefer something a bit heavier but I think this will work really well as a light base or mixed with a tiny dab of foundation if I'm in need of more coverage. Blends seemlessly and can be applied with your fingers (although I do have to wash my hands before I can even think about picking anything up afterwards!) which makes it super easy for holidays and festivals, especially as it's got SPF 20! It sinks in super quick and doesn't make me look oily or cling to dry patches which I absolutely love. I can't really say anything bad about this product. Flawless.
