Today at STYLEanthropy, I’m giving away 10 full sets of the Cosmedicine Honest Face Tinted Moisturizer! Who is as excited as I am? Not familiar with the product? Don’t worry, I have a review for you below and you are going to love it!
Cosmedicine Honest Face Tinted Moisturizer Review
The packaging alone is phenomenal. It arrives in a cylindrical tube/box container. When you open it up, the tinted moisturizer is in a rosy tube with a rosegold lid. The front part is gold and has a wax stamp-like detail on the top right with the letter C for Cosmedicine. My kind of packaging!
Inside, there’s also a dust bag or pouch to put your tinted moisturizer in. It’s perfect for tossing in the bag or when you’re traveling. There’s also a small envelope with information about the product inside. If you ask me, it’s a perfect gift too. With Holiday season coming up in a few months, you might want to consider gifting your squad this!
Here are the five shades, from left to right:
- Medium Light (sorry, this should have been before the medium, but I’ve been feeling dizzy the past 2 days and didn’t notice I lined them up incorrectly)
- Medium Dark
Honest Face ($59) is a perfected tinted daily moisturizer. Main features:
- Broad Spectrum SPF 20
- Flawless Finish
- Tinted Moisturizer
- For Normal or Dry Skin
- Infused with Proprietary MegaDose Nutritional Complex
I love that this product has caffeine extract too because caffeine is known to reduce puffiness. It has Vitamin C which is great for age spots. It has yeast extracts too – great for dark spots!
Honest Face is clinically shown to improve skin elasticity and hydration levels. In clinical tests, subjects experienced a 21% increase in skin hydration, 65% decrease in skin dryness and 30% increase in skin elasticity after use.
Honest Face Tinted Moisturizer Swatches
So I swatched the tinted moisturizers below. Again, I apologize because I accidentally switched the medium and medium light shades. See?
Anyway, what I noticed about all of the shades is that – the lighter the shade of the moisturizer, the thinner the texture is. The darker the shade, the thicker the texture. Not sure if it was just a coincidence, because of shipment, or if it’s really like that. Nevertheless, I tried all of these shades on my face and they all blended well.
You’re probably wondering, you tried all shades? Yup. I used the two darker shades as contour. I mixed the dark and medium dark shades, and applied it on the sides of my nose, hair line, jaw and hollows of my cheeks.
I used the lightest shade under my eyes. And the Medium Light and Medium shades were use throughout my face.
This is a great tinted moisturizer. It’s sheer. So if you don’t have any redness or blemishes, one coat is fine. But if you want to even out your skin tone, the product is buildable, just like a foundation. I didn’t use any foundation in here. And at the time I took these photos, I didn’t use any powder.
However, if you get really oily or if it’s way too hot where you live, you might want to set a powder on top. After about 4 hours outside wearing Honest Face, I was a bit oily. I just used oil blotting sheets because I didn’t have powder in my bag. So that took care of the oil but the tinted moisturizer was still in tact.
