Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser SPF 20 (Caramel)


While CC Cream is an extended moment of the BB Cream and have been raved by beauty bloggers, sad to say I am behind time. Just recently, yes, recently after reading a couple of reviews, I was at the shopping mall to get one. Going from one beauty store to the other wasn't fruitful and it didn't help that the dolled up beauty consultants were not keen in closing sales with me. I definitely was angry but instead of giving them a piece of my mind, I walked away as I felt it was their lost and not mine. Eventually at the Laura Mercier counter I was told that compared to CC Cream, this tinted moisturiser is far better for hydrating and to even out skin tone with a nice consistency for a hint of natural shade.

Product Description
Laura`s revolutionary and award-winning tinted moisturizer is a sheer, lightweight moisturizer with SPF 20 that can be used in place of foundation for a natural appearance while adding a healthy glow to the complexion. Laura recommends starting at the outer portion of the face and working inwards toward the nose. Avoid excess application around the contours of the face. Blend well. Repeat application until desired coverage is achieved for 
- Normal skin 
- Sheer Coverage 
- Natural Finish 
- Moisturising Factor 
This moisturizer (40 ml) gives a sheer coverage to impart a lovely radiance without looking chalky and caked on my sensitive-combination skin. Great for a natural and no make-up look which I prefer too, it doesn't make me look oily and greasy. Most of all, it didn't break me up but my T-zone does get shiny after a few hours. After applying this moisturiser, a sunblock (Heliocare SPF 50) is still essential as 20 SPF is not enough to defend my skin against the scorching heat and over it, I dust a light layer of powder to set it in. Also, it is a great all-in-one product to shield your skin from UVA rays when you are at home.

I must admit I love this tinted moisturiser though the only regret is that I  I should have gotten a lighter tone to easily even out and smoothly blend as the texture is slightly heavy/thick. As for the packaging, the moisturiser gradually drips out of the tube and on the cover when stored with the neck down. The tube is definitely is travel friendly but make sure the cover is tightly closed to avoid spill/leaks, especially during hot-humid weather.
