Bobbi Brown Tinted Moisturiser - Guest post by Saida Cane

Today I'm so pleased to present a guest writer on my blog - Saida Cane from Saida Cane Photography. If you haven't read any of Saida's posts before you absolutely have to visit her blog; Saida is a great blogger and a wonderful photographer and has a lovely mix of posts on everything from beauty to lifestyle and today Saida shares a review on the Bobbi Brown Tinted Moisturiser - I hope you enjoy it! 

Ever since I tried my first Tinted Moisturiser, I had a bit of a love/hate relationship with them. They looked so natural and felt great on the skin but they didn’t provide me with enough coverage so I felt as though it was a bit of a waste of money for me. Saying that, I probably shouldn’t have tried it when my skin was going through the classic teenage phase, and now that it’s looking much better and generally a lot healthier, I thought I would give tinted moisturisers another go, because if you can get away with less, why not right?

After looking at dozens of reviews online, I came across the Bobbi Brown Tinted Moisturisers with SPF 15, which come in normal and oil-free formulas, and my t-zone suggested the latter was probably the best option. I purchased it in the shade Light to Medium tint, and I was really impressed with the range of shades – there is definitely something to suit all skin tones. 
  
The consistency of it is very thin but not watery and a bit all over the place like some tinted moisturisers can be. As you can guess, the thin consistency makes it an absolute dream to apply to the skin and there’s no need for tugging or dragging around any delicate areas, it really does just glide on beautifully. The finish is neither dewy nor matte, it’s what I would describe as natural, which I think looks lovely on the skin. I’ve always had the great privilege of having a mixture of oily and dry skin so picking skin products has always been an absolute nightmare to say the least, but this product doesn’t accentuate any dry or oily areas so I seem to have got the best of both worlds with it.

As I said before, this tinted moisturiser isn’t something you will want to spend your money on if you have skin problems that require a full coverage foundation, but if you have a blemish here or there and the rest of your skin is in good condition, then I think you’ll like this because there’s no need to cover your entire face in a full coverage foundation just because of a few spots that can be blurred away with some trusted concealer! If your skin is looking a little dull and you want a light pick-me-up, then something like this will do the trick for you as well.

At £29 it can be a little steep but if you are looking for a lovely alternative to foundation when the spring and summer comes around then I think you will really like it, and a little bit really does go a long way.

I’m really glad I gave tinted moisturisers another go because I feel as though I have definitely found a staple product for days when my skin doesn’t need to look ‘flawless’, and even though full coverage foundations make your skin look amazing, sometimes you gotta cut it a little slack and let it breathe a little! 

I’d love to know what your favourite tinted moisturisers/sheer foundations are?

Saida x
