Mary Kay® Tinted Moisturizer with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Review

Hello Ladies,

Hope you are doing excellent!! I am going to share my experience on Mary Kay® Tinted Moisturizer with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 20 in the Shade Beige 1. I have heard a lot about this Brand but never ever used any creams until yesterday. I recently came to know about a Mary Kay Beauty Consultant near to my place. She insisted me to try this Tinted Moisturizer and let’s see what I experienced after going through the product.



What are the company claims?

Get three fabulous benefits in one: sheer, lightweight colors; oil-free moisturization that lasts up to 10 hours; and UVA/UVB protection. Wear all day when a more casual, natural look is desired or on days when the usual beauty routine needs to be streamlined.
·         Creates a natural, casual look.
·         Suitable for all skin types.
·         Clinically tested for skin irritancy and allergy.
·         Fragrance- and oil-free.
·         Non-comedogenic.
Application Tips
Apply every morning or wear all day when a more casual, natural look is desired or on days when the usual beauty routine needs to be streamlined.
How It Works
Provides three benefits in one – sheer color, oil-free moisturization and UVA/UVB protection.

Key Ingredients

Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract is an antioxidant known as a free-radical scavenger. This ingredient is included in products to help protect the skin from the effects of free radicals generated by the environment.

Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract is a soothing agent known for its calming properties. As a moisturizer/hydrator, it helps condition and smooth the skin by adding, attracting or retaining moisture.

Octinoxate (7.5%), Octisalate (5%), Zinc Oxide (2.4%) and Oxybenzone (1.75%) are UVA and UVB sunscreens which the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has determined to be both safe and effective, within certain concentrations, in protecting the skin from ultraviolet light.

Price : 9 Rials / 18 $ for 43 ML (Approx 1000 Rs)

My Opinion on the Product.

The formula is Oil-Free, Non greasy, Light weighted and has a SPF 20, Lot of shades available i.e Ivory 1
Ivory 2,Beige 1,Beige2,Bronze 1,Bronze 2 .
 
Mine is Beige 1 because it just exactly matches my skin color, ivory would be too light and bronze would have been too dark for me. I ordered the Mary Kay Tinted Moisturizer with Sunscreen SPF 20 from a Mary Kay Beauty Consultant. It does absorbs well and gives a glow to my skin not oily but a healthy glow, can be seen in the pics below. This product also provides UVB & UVA protection, plus point is it is suitable for all the skin types. It has a buttery texture, and very runny formula. So it blends really well . It also contains some Aloe Extract which doesn’t cause any irritation because aloe is good for skin. The Lasting Power is super awesome for more than 8 Hours. It doesn’t have any Fragrance. It has a Long Tip easy to remove the product. The Packaging is Quite Simple with a Pinkish Cream Tube and a Box. The packaging and Looks are very similar to Garnier BB Cream (Review Here).

It Gives me a Medium to Full coverage, I really don’t need any foundation over this, also it does lessens  your dark circles , so people who have intense dark circles need to apply a Concealer over it. 

My Likes:
·         Shows up very natural skin, doesn’t feel like applied something on the face.
·         Contains SPF 20 (although it cannot give you a complete protection from the Sun but not bad )
·         Available in 6 Shades (Atleast more than Garnier)
·         Approved by US FDA.
·         Blends well, Non Greasy, Fragrance Free
·         Gives me a glow on the skin.
·         Travel Friendly
My Dislikes:
·         Expensive
·         Availability Issue
·         Tested on Animals
LBA Rating : 4/5
Would I recommend: Yes please try it once as my experience was very good.
Regards

  1. The quantity is very less for if it's expensive and for SPF 20! I use neutragena SPF 50 sun block and it's pretty amazing :)

  10. I for the most part Want to buy the less exorbitant things yet fear misusing my money. I have used benefit's radical tinted non comedogenic moisturizerfor a spell and was hunting down a sensible elective since its running out. In the wake of examining your review I gained the ave-no brand and was eager to see that it works all things considered as you communicated.
