The Alma Chronicle
In the past, I’ve consciously stayed away from tinted moisturizers as I believed I couldn’t find one off the shelves that matched my skin’s undertones.
I tried the Burt’s Bees Goodness Glows Tinted Moisturizer as a unique alternative to foundation and I was pleasantly surprised. For someone who is used to wearing a face of full coverage makeup, I must say it took some getting used to. The tinted moisturizer wears similar to a daytime moisturizer with a tint of color and a non-greasy natural finish. The sheer coverage also offered the right amount of lightweight feel and natural look that blended with my everyday products.
I wore it for 7 hours and my skin looked radiant both in person and in photos, that it was hard to guess I wasn’t wearing any actual foundation (true testament from friends).
Additionally, I’m a big fan of skincare so an extra bonus is that the Goodness Glows tinted moisturizer is made with ingredients from nature and is rich in vitamins and antioxidants that help moisturize and nourish the skin.
Bird of Balance
As I’ve gotten older my skin has become increasingly dry. Finding a foundation that doesn’t dry up my skin or crease is important to me. I’m also more cautious about sun exposure, so I like to include something with pigment. My usual skin routine includes cleansing my skin, followed by a toner and moisturizer. I then apply a lightweight foundation to even out my skin tone and texture, as well as a bronzer for a little glow.
When I first used Burt’s Bees Tinted Moisturizer, simplifying my routine was my intention. It’s the perfect combination of a daytime moisturizer with a tint of colour that is also lightweight—all of my must haves. The biggest difference that I’ve noticed is the lasting coverage and all-day moisture.
Not only is my routine a few steps simpler with the antioxidant-rich Tinted Moisturizer, but I’m not experiencing the dry creasing I normally notice from the foundation layered (and drying up) on top of my moisturizer.
Now I simply apply the Burt’s Bees Tinted Moisturizer onto a freshly washed face and I’m ready for the day. It goes on smoothly and provides even coverage with a dewy glow. An additional bonus is that it’s made with 98.8% ingredients from natural origins, so I have the peace of mind of knowing that my clean skin isn’t layered with the cosmetic nasties such as parabens, phthalates, petrolatum and SLS that we see in so many products. I love that this is a product that can be used year-round for easy everyday tinted coverage that keeps your skin hydrated throughout the day!
Since late 2019 I was dealing with a lot of skin issues, so I have been super careful with any products that I put on my face. I’ve always had a good experience with Burt’s Bees products so when it came to trying their new Tinted Moisturizer, I felt comfortable testing it out!
After wearing it for about a week I can happily say that I am in love. I am obsessed with how it’s so lightweight, but still gives a tint of colour that helps even my skin tone. It also leaves you with this super natural glow I’m always striving for. An added benefit is that since it’s a moisturizer, it keeps my skin super hydrated throughout the day! It’s rich in antioxidants, is 98.8% natural origin ingredients, and is dermatologist tested! I found it a perfect addition to my speedy morning routine because the texture is so smooth that it can be easily applied with just your fingers. I’m excited to add this tinted moisturizer into my everyday beauty arsenal!
It’s rare to find a tinted moisturizer at this price point that does what this one can do. I have the skin type that is either really oily or dry. What I like about Burt’s Bees Goodness Glows is that it hydrates without making my skin look shiny. It blurs and evens, while effortlessly matching my skin tone (always a tough one for me as I’m usually mixing shades), working like a primer and foundation in one.
I never like to look like I am wearing makeup and the coverage is lightweight and natural, which makes this perfect for everyday use. The way it blends in and looks so much like your skin was the part that impressed me most about it. It is also really nice to know that it is made with ingredients from nature and does not not irritate my skin, as some tinted moisturizers are heavy and full of fragrance. I can apply it quickly with my fingertips as I make my way out the door in the morning. It’s a no fuss product where a little bit goes a long way. I’m really happy with the results!
