If you prefer a matte look, try Miracle Skin Transformer™ SPF 20 Face.

Miracle Skin Transformer®

Birchbox Breakdown

Our vanity shelf was about to hang out the “no vacancy” sign—until this multitasking face tint showed up. Truth be told, it performs the function of a small army of skincare products. Its five benefits include that it: visibly improves skin's texture and appearance of pores, minimizes the appearance of fine lines, reduces discoloration, evens out and illuminates skin tone, and protects from UVA/UVB rays. Our skin is left brighter and smoother, with just the slightest hint of a golden glow. Which means that in a pinch, it’s more likely to make it into our makeup bag than our foundation or moisturizer.

How it Works

In this lightweight formula, light-diffusing minerals help brighten up dull skin while glycerin smooths and hydrates. The oh-so-subtle tint works for most skin tones and adds just a hint of gold shimmer. Plus, the formula is full of skin-improvers (think: vitamins and antioxidants) that nourish and hydrate while fending off the signs of premature aging. For the sun-conscious, the broad spectrum SPF 20 protection is a major plus.

How to Use

Smooth a dime-sized amount over clean skin at least 15 minutes before sun exposure. Reapply every two hours while in the sun. Pro tip: Mix a small amount into your foundation to give it a pretty hint of shimmer.

Amazing!
SampledPurchased

This gives skin a nice glow on it's own or underneath a BB cream. It looked too dark when I first saw it, but it's very sheer and just evens out complexion.

Great summer glow
SampledPurchased

I was undecided about this product when I sampled it -- what is it? is it a bronzer? a face cream? an illuminator? a BB cream? -- but ended up ordering it. And it's been perfect for summer. I mix it with a little bit of illuminating face cream and use it all over my face. It's perfect -- give me a finished, glowy look that's not at all heavy.

Decent

Might not be the best for combination skin; made my skin look a little too shiny but otherwise applied really well and felt great!

One of my favorites...
Sampled

I'm a big fan of BB/CC. creams and other tinted moisturizers as I do not like to use foundation. This product worked well as a substitute to foundation.

Super smooth non-oily texture and beautiful glow
Sampled

I found this product to be super enhancing and created a beautiful natural-looking glow. My favorite thing about it is the texture. It smooths the skin in almost a dry-oil fashion without any oily finish. I have a fair complexion with a light tan so this product was the perfect amount of tint to produce a glowing healthy look. I only applied a very small amount and started on my cheekbones and worked out from there.

Love this!

I really love this product. It gives my face a great glow when I'm ready to go out. I just put a dab on top of my makeup on my cheeks.

Feels great on my face!
Sampled

It feels really light on your face while providing a good, light coverage. It doesn't feel like an SPF, but provides you with the SPF coverage. Overall, this product is great for during-the-day coverage.

Very shimmery, small sample
Sampled

This is much more shimmery than I expected, which is good because if used as a highlighter, the very small sample tube may provide a few uses

I LOVE this stuff!
SampledPurchased

Once I figured out how I like to use this, I really love it. I mix a bit with foundation or tinted moisturizer and it improves both the texture and the look, with a nice slip and a natural glow. I especially like it with my Dr. Jart BB cream, which is a little bit pale and unnatural looking otherwise. Together they're a Dream Team!
