Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How to Use

After washing your face, dab onto cheeks and forehead and blend. Apply sparingly to avoid a caked-on effect——and use daily to reap the full benefits.

Awesome and doesn't look like makeup

It provides great coverage without anyone ever knowing you used it. It can get a bit clumpy if your skin is dry, so I would moisturize first, and then use it. Otherwise, the product is awesome. Will definitely buy again.

Even works for us lumberjack types!
Purchased

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.

Healthy Glow.
Purchased

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.

A decent tinted moisturizer
Purchased

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.

This the best!
Purchased

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!

Finally a SPF that does not leave your face white

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.

Nice Product
Purchased

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.

First time
Purchased

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.

Smooth looks.
Purchased

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.
