Review It!

So... I'm not one who likes to pack on make up when I go to work.
So I like to steer away from foundation and stick to tinted moisturisers or just a light brush of compact powder foundation.

I have 2 tinted moisturisers to review for you today. 

1. Origins Vitazing SPF 15
2. True Solutions all day moisture.



Origins Vitazing SPF 15. Energy-boosting moisturizer with mangosteen.
I purchased this product a while ago thanks to Tiffany D on youtube. She constantly raved on and on about how much she adored this product so I just had to try for myself. This tinted moisturiser is unlike any other one I've tried before.
It applies smoothly and sinks into the skin well with a very faint hint of the cosmetic cream scent that wouldn't put anyone off. At first the formula is somewhat pale in colour but as you work the product into your skin it reacts and turns a darker colour depending how long you work the product in, leaving it looking very natural on any skin colour.
I cannot remember the price but I remember thinking it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be considering it is an imported brand.
To me the formula is moisturising enough to wear alone but for those who like more, then a day cream before this would be ideal.
I will definately repurchase this product again as I love the finish and colour it gives to my skin  and its a plus with the mangosteen enhanced giving the skin a healthy feeling.






On the left is the product worked into the skin. As you can see in comparison to the original colour on the right it is definitely different. You can also see the colour difference on my hand surface.












 True Solutions all day moisture. Broad spectrum SPF 30 tinted cream
I received this in the April Lust Have It bag and was delighted to see the size of the sample. It was decent sized meaning I could truly test out the product and see whether or not I actually enjoyed it.
So far it isn't too bad. The smell is pretty much non existent but smells clean and the colour is visibly tinted with a tan/medium brown colour.
The formula itself is thin but needs to be worked in pretty fast as it sets almost instantly into the skin which is a plus for people who have a few steps in their make up routine meaning you wont be layering on products that seem to mix on the face surface.
I personally need to moisturise first before applying this product as it doesn't pack enough moisture for the whole day.
Will I purchase the full size? Probably not. If anything I will stick to my Vitazing or try out another brand.

Hope you liked my input and review of these two products.
Which tinted moisturiser do you use?

  2. I haven't tried tinted moisturisers but I have tried bb creams instead. I find that they're a lot lighter than foundations :) X
