Review: Jane Aqua Ceuticals Sheer Tinited Moisturizer SPF 30



Quality: 5 out of 5
Performance: 5 out of 5
Packaging: 5 out of 5
Size: 1.5 oz
Price: $6.99
Where To Buy: Walgreens, Rite Aid
Will I Buy Again: Yes!

I saw it at Walgreens and just had to try it. I don't usually do inpulse buys but I figured since I've never use a TM before I could try this out and wear it to the gym at the very least.

This is the first tinted moisturizer I've ever tried, so perhaps I don't know what I'm missing but I love this product! I know I'm going to use it tons in the summer when my family has swim/birthday partys (which is very often May-August).

This product comes in 4 shades: Fair (very fair, pink or porcelain undertones), Light Warm Tones (beige or yellow undertones), Medium Warm Tones (mediterranean, tanned complexion) and Dark Tones (deep, warm complexion). I use the lightest which is suppose to be for fair/pink toned skin but its great on my light neutral/warm skin.



PROS:
-SPF 30, protects your skin
-paraben free
-has green tea and white tea extracts
-gives good light to almost medium coverage, I have huge pores, uneven skin, and breakouts but I feel ok going out in just this (i.e the gym, quick errands, or beach/pool)
-makes my skin a little glowy
-gives light oil control, not as much as my normal foundation but I can just rinse my face mid-day and re apply which is good because you need to touch up sunscreen anyways
-makes a nice base for regular foundation, my foundation goes on really nice over it
-you get a very good quantity for the prize, 1.5 oz for $7

CONS:
-strong sunscreen smell when you put it on and take it off, but I kind of like the smell of sunscreen

I love this stuff! I'm not a big makeup fan, but I found this product and I've loved from the start. It covers pretty well and feels very light on my skin. Good review, glad I'm not the only one who enjoys it. :) thanks!
