Review – Jane Aguaceuticals Tinted Moisturizer

When I saw Jane’s new Aguaceuticals tinted moisturizer I knew I was dying to try it. I was just nervous about the color match because so many “Fair Tones” products aren’t fair or pink enough for me. But the claims on the packaging drew me in:

– SPF 30 with no avobenzene (I’m allergic to avobenzene)
– Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
– Organic Green & White Tea extracts
– Paraben Free
– Certified Organic
– Tube made from 50% post-consumer material

Cool, right? :) So it came home with me. And to my horror, it looks like this on my wrist:

Eeek! That doesn’t look very fair, for pink or porcelain undertones to you?! Oh the horror. But, being hopeful/dilligent, I decided to blend it in. And I was delighted to see it turn into this:

Whoa hey! It’s my wrist! Not looking grossly dark or yellow! Who knew? Turns out that schmear of yuck actually blends into a natural looking coverage. Dude. I’m sold. Same thing on my face– looks gross as I’m blending it in, but once it’s blended it looks totally fine.

Btw, say hi to my Bliss Lemon Sage Body Butter. It wanted to say hi. :)

So, how does it perform? Well, to be honest I experience quite a bit of oil breakthrough throughout the day, and it requires powder touch-ups. Other than that, it’s okay. I’m not over the moon, but it’s SPF 30 that doesn’t break me out and gives me a little coverage, so I’ll keep it around. For serious sun protection and mattifying, I prefer MAC Prep + Prime Face Protect, which is SPF 50.

I accidentally tossed the receipt for this, but I think it was about $6 for 1.5 fl oz.
