Skin-tone: Fair to medium; Skin-type: Combination and acne-prone
I love wearing base makeup because at times I am a lazy bum and do not take proper care of my skin, but these base makeup products always do the trick. I saw this one from Physicians Formula and couldn’t resist picking it up because I have not seen a lot of tinted moisturizers with SPF 50. So let’s see how this one worked for me.
Price: $14.95/Rs 1000

My Experience with Physicians Formula Healthy Wear SPF 50 Tinted Moisturizer:
Packaging: The tinted moisturizer comes in a super gorgeous bright orange and pink packaging. It is a cylindrical bottle which is long and sleek and can be easily carried around. It has a pump dispenser with a small hole which lets out only a little quantity at a time. It has a cap which closes with a click so no worries of leakage at all. I love how cute the packaging is because I love such colours which bring freshness in life. The price is no doubt expensive for a tinted moisturizer but it is totally worth it since it works better than some foundations.
Consistency, shade and feel on the skin: The consistency is super creamy but I can see the pigmentation being great too since it does not look sheer at all. It glides very smoothly on my skin just like any other tinted moisturizer. The shade I picked up is “Light to natural” and it matched my skin-tone very nicely. It looks just 5% darker on me which is okay. But you need to be really careful while choosing a shade because the shades are a bit darker than the name.
Results: I was amazed to see the results because the kind of coverage it provides is much more than what we expect. It is a tinted moisturizer from no angle at all. It works just like some drugstore foundation. It brightens my skin making it glow. It always has a sheen to it which looks good but might not suit oily skin; hence I do not use it during summers. It has SPF 50 which means it gives my skin a really good protection and the best part is that I do not have to use anything beneath it. It covers all the imperfections on my skin, be it the redness, the uneven skin-tone, the acne scars and much more. It does cover my dark circles too up-to a good extent but I prefer using a concealer beneath. It just completely transforms my skin. It stays on my skin for a good 7-8 hours. I would say it is totally worth the money!
