If you've ever stolen your significant other's face cream, you're in good company (just think of Walter White). But it's time to step up and get your own—like this made-for-men blemish balm that evens complexion and lends skin a subtle glow, while coating it in an essential layer of SPF.
Let's just say it out loud. This is makeup for men. Don't be scared by that. You're on Birchbox because you want a better image. I came here to step up my grooming game. Believe it or not, tinted moisturizer is now part of that.
I have a full beard, and don't have a problem being seen in a flannel shirt. But my face is a man's face, full of imperfections. Lab Series Tinted Moisturizer evens out my skintone. It's hard to describe, but my face looks better, and does not have a "makeup" look to it.
You're only going to use a little bit at a time. A dot for each cheek and the nose, two to three dots for the forehead. Don't cake it on, just a little bit hear and there, and blend it in with your fingers.
This is one time when it's OK to be self-conscious. By using very little to start, no one will see any sign of the product, just the good results.
I ordered this product from Birchbox hoping it was not going to be full-on man makeup. Luckily, it is not. It smells like sun tan lotion and looks like your girlfriends foundation makeup. It goes on smooth. Use your ring finger to dab a few dots under the eyes, on the forehead, and on the cheeks and chin. I use a tiny amount at each point. Then blend in. Not greasy. No skin discolaration. Just blends into face offering a nice glow. I've used it after tanning and found no difference in it's effectiveness even though my skin tone was more golden after tanning. I really like this stuff and it should last a long time.5
Although I can tell the difference in my skin's texture after use, the tint doesn't seem to be very potent. Personally, I think if you are considering buying this product, don't get it just for looking tanner, but if you are here for the SPF and the softening effects of the product, I recommend it highly.4
I had been wondering about using a BB cream for a while. I was so excited when I first put this on! It totally evens out my skin tone and is an excellent moisturizer. And the SPF 35 is a no brainer! t doesn't get cakey looking, do you can't tell it's really that tinted! it blends totally in. But it still evens tone and subdues blemishes and uneven coloration in subdued way. Great product all around!5
I really love this product, the best so far that I have found that don't leave your face white like other sunscreens. Makes your face look fresh, its not oily and the best part it has a good protection of SPF.
This is a nice product for my skin. I love the little bit of tint it provides, which evens my skin tone nicely. The product does not feel heavy on my skin and make it look healthy.5
I found out about this product from one of Birchbox's videos, and I was skeptical at first. Being latino and dark skinned, I wondered if it could help me. (the limited sunlight and cold of winter would make my skin blotchy , dry and lighter than usual) And indeed, it did. It's the closest thing to make-up I will EVER use, but it's definitely a permanant part of my grooming kit.5
I got this product to help cover the dark circles under my eyes. I saw the product demo video and gave it a try. I like this product. It does not have a heavy feel and my face does not look shiny afterward. As to the tinted aspect of this it takes a bit of practice to get the coverage just right. Maybe a brush will help with the blending. As spring approaches and I get more sun I'll see how it well it can match my skin tone.4
This is a great moisturizer , that really does provide an evening effect to your skin.
Pros: spreads great with a wonderful texture. I have experienced no stains or marks on polos or button down shirts. Really does even the appearance of skin tone without looking at all "makeup-ey". Really feels moisturizing and it did not take much effort to rub in evenly. No streaks or lines.
Cons: The product stings a little bit putting it on the first time, but I really can't fault the product for that, as my skin is very sensitive to anything with an SPF. I did have to take the star for the overpowering sunscreen smell. It did not fade for quite a while.
Overall, great product! Does exactly what it promises, with a bit of sunscreen smell that lingers. I recommend.
I had heard about BB cream from a view friends and ordered this product as soon as I saw it. It blends perfectly with my skin tone and is still a great moisturizer! The only down side is the price, when I realized my friends had only paid around $15 for theirs I was a little disappointed.5
