I normally prefer using moisturiser which is tinted or has SPF. For a change, I opted for Tarte Brighter Days Highlighting Moisturizer. This moisturiser has some plus points that I was convinced to buy and experience. So, let’s begin with my views. It’s a soft, velvet textured, white coloured, gel cream, which is oil free and non sticky. The formula is very lightweight and gets instantly absorbed. Keeps my skin hydrated which tends to dry easily. It does not dry, irritate or cause break outs on my sensitive skin.

I prefer using this moisturiser in the evenings after cleansing my skin. I usually wear it under my primer, bb cream or foundation. It instantly brightens my facial skin and adds a mild radiant glow. Skin feels softer, moisturised and “ready to wear” makeup. I have received compliments when I have applied this highlighting moisturiser under my makeup, be it sheer or built up.

It definitely does something to make my skin look and feel good. All the more, it is formulated with water and mineral pigments which helps retain skin natural moisture, soothes, softens and brightens the skin. I do not use this moisturiser very regularly but use it sometimes for my evening outings and dinner invites. It does not dry or dehydrate my skin, neither it is extremely hydrating, adds a mild glow to my facial skin. I feel this moisturiser may work for all skin types, except for the extremely dry and extremely oily skin.
