Skin Type- Combination to Oily.
Sensitive Skin: No
I like tinted products as it is not too stark, yet gives a healthy look to the skin; more so in sunscreens as it is easily cancels out the whitish cast that is left by sunscreens. I got this Skin Illuminator a while back and here are my thoughts on the same.
This tinted all in 1 moisturizer is a duo of lightweight, tone-matching coverage and daily hydration, so you can instantly even and illuminate dull tone. In 1 month skin is visibly smoother and discolorations are diminished.
My Experience with L’Oreal Youth Code Skin Illuminator Tinted All In One Moisturizer:
The skin illuminator moisturizer comes in a slender tube packaging. The pointed tip is perfect to get the little amount of product required each time, hence no wastage. There is a lot of information on the outer paper carton regarding the ingredients, usage and efficacy of the product.
The cream has medium consistency; it is neither too thick nor too thin. The cream is white with micro beads when swatched initially. When you start rubbing the beads release pigment which gives the hint of coverage to the skin. Hence I find it is better to apply with finger and not brush. The cream does not give a heavy coverage but it is something that covers minute imperfections.
Coming to the effectiveness, I would say it is good for people with dry skin and that too in the winters. For the oily skinned people it might just add to the woes of adding more shine to the face. The hint of color is a bonus with moisturizers that come with SPF but since there is only one tint available, so it is good for medium skin tones only. Very fair or very dark skin tones might find it difficult to blend in the cream.
Though it is a good everyday option for people with dry skin but the limitations really do not make it a universal product. I personally do not like the heavy feel on the skin and the oily look it gives. There are better options available out there at a better price.
