Thanks to the wonderful Cover FX team I had a chance to try out the SkinTint FX. Let me start by telling you - HG material!
SkinTint FX has a SPF 30 which is the minimum amount of SPF you should wear on a daily basis for the prevention of premature aging (nothing less than 30 please!). It is also oil-free, paraben-free, and fragrance free, hence great for sensitive skin. Plus the texture is super smooth and applies like a dream!
SkinTint FX - 30 mL - $39 CAD Available at Shoppers Drug Mart, Murale, select Sephora stores, and coverfx.com.
Back of the tube. Zinc Oxide - Natural SPF Ingredient :) It really does give a natural (not orange!) sunkissed radiance and tone. And definitely shake well before use.
I'm in the shade M-light. At first when I used this I was shocked by the colour, it was a lot darker than my skin tone!
Blend blend blend! Blending fixed everything. The texture is silky smooth, unlike your regular sunscreen. I use my E.L.F. flat top kabuki to apply this on my face, but fingers work as well.
TA-DA! This is the best picture I took comparing the difference on the back of my hand, split down in the middle, between SkinTint FX to the left and no SkinTint FX on the right. It's subtle but definitely makes a difference adding a bit of colour to my uneven skin colour and pale skin. There's also very very very fine shimmers (you can hardly see it, I promise) that helps to brighten your skin as well.
I use this everyday now, and haven't noticed any breakouts, and it also helps to control my oil better than my usual mineral foundation. This fixes my bad habit of not applying SPF everyday because I hate the texture of sunscreen and how oily I get from it. Compared to my Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer, the SkinTint FX feels lighter, and is easier to blend.
I think it's also perfect for the spring and summer without having to bake in the sun. Add a little bronzer, lip gloss and you are set! I definitely recommend those of you interested in adding a bit of colour to your face and would like to protect your skin from UV rays to check this out! 5 stars!
If you have any other questions, let me know :)
