Tinted moisturiser and me have had a love hate relationship over the years. I think the problem is that I use a long wearing, full coverage foundation during the autumn and winter months and then when I try to switch to something lighter in the spring and summer I just feel naked. I also find that tinted moisturisers tend to have a real orange glow about them. I read a review for Madara Tinting Fluid over at Beautyswot and left a comment, then I was offered the opportunity to try the product for myself.
What they say...........
Tints, illuminates and lightly moisturisers the skin of the face and neck. Evens out skin tone. Gives the skin freshness and radiance. Disguises imperfections and fine lines. A lighter alternative to foundation. Like daisy petals shimmering in the moonlight. Contains Baltic Algae, Chamomile, Plantain, Calendula and St John's Wort. Colour and shimmer are obtained from natural minerals.
What I say...........
I was sent Moon Flower, which is for fair skin, if you are darker skinned then you will need Sun Flower.
I love the packaging and the fact that it has a pump, very unusual for a tinted moisturiser. The product has a lovely fresh aroma. I am also pleased to say that it is not orangey at all and has more of a peach tint to it. The coverage is very impressive, although I have to confess for the first couple of days that I used it I mixed a little of my normal foundation with it, just so that I could get used to a more sheer look. The thing that I love most about this product is the beautiful sheen that it gives the skin, skin literally glows.
Sadly I could not get the lighting right to show you the true sheen of this product.
The product also has good staying power, I wore this today for a shopping trip with my daughter to Birmingham, when I arrived home at 6pm this evening my skin looked fresh and I still had that lovely sheen. I am really pleased with the performance of this product and I think my love hate relationship with tinted moisturisers is about to turn into a long term relationship.
This product has also won the prestigious Natural Health Best Buy 2011
