Lancôme Skin Feels Good Tinted Moisturizer | REVIEW

I recently received an AMAZING VoxBox from Influenster & Lancôme featuring the new Skin Feels Good Tinted Moisturizer. (Also included were three other FULL-size products!! Influenster outdid themselves this time. SIGN UP HERE.)

This skin tint made its way into my weekly series #WearTestWednesday on the ‘Tube – but I wanted to share my final thoughts with you! After trying a few more times after the vid, I have some well-rounded opinions.

Make sure you’ve watched the video – and let’s get into my final thoughts on the Lancôme Skin Feels Good Tinted Moisturizer!


LANCÔME SKIN FEELS GOOD

This product comes in a 1.08 oz tube/pump, for $35.

Available 11 shades – I was sent the shade 025W – Soft Beige.

I was worried the “warm” wouldn’t work for me – but apparently, I don’t know my skin tone and it worked out just fine. Or I’m a neutral undertone and can get away with either? Let’s go with that…

CLAIMS

This is an oil-free ‘foundation’ (I swear I can’t keep up with what they want us to call this thing. Some call it Tinted Moisturizer, some a Nourishing Foundation, and the packaging says Hydrating Skin Tint.) But either way – this product provides a sheer tint to your face with the addition of skincare benefits and SPF 23.

Claims to be lightweight and breathable, giving skin a velvety smooth radiant glow.

And because this is a skincare product with tint – or a tinted product with skincare? – there are some claims-over-time they throw out there: Skin Feels Good reduces signs of fatigue by 25% and smoothes wrinkles while revealing a firmer, softer, smoother, and more even complexion day after day.

This nourishing foundation contains some great skincare ingredients! Hyaluronic acid and glycerin both help hydrate the skin and retain moisture. Also in this formula is Moringa Seed Extract, which helps protect the skin from free-radicals.

Oddly enough, even with all these hydrating/glowing claims and ingredients – the product ‘rap sheet’ on sephora.com excludes Dry Skin under what skin type this is for.

Unfortunately – also in the mix are fragrances – some pretty high up (Rosa Gallica Flower Extract is listed 7th and is a possibly sensitized plant extract used solely as a fragrance additive.)

WEAR

For a 3-day wear test along with my first impressions – check out my video! And don’t forget to subscribe while you’re there 🙂

Going on this product is very gel-like and lightweight. It blends extremely easily – I found it did the best with my fingers. The coverage is minimal, yes. But there is more coverage than I expected and it was slightly buildable.

Also – this foundation is GLOW.Y.

GLOW. GLOW GLOW.

I’m talking even after setting with powder you will be reflecting all sorts of light. I wasn’t greasy or oily. Just very radiant. VERY radiant. And maybe the reflective-ness helps to camouflage anything it doesn’t cover up?

I really liked the feeling of this on my skin. It didn’t feel cakey or heavy – it really did make my skin feel good! It did slightly settle into my pores with no primer.

As for wear, this is not a long wear foundation. It does not claim to be either. But I have to test everything! It did, however, wear MUCH longer and better than I expected. Very lightly fading in my trouble areas (around my nose). I didn’t get super oily but did stay glowy and dewy. It just kind of looked like healthy glowy skin at the end of the day – much like after application!

THE VERDICT

While I won’t be reaching for this on an everyday basis – I am glad this is in my collection. It is an absolutely BEAUTIFUL glow after application, one that even an oily girl can appreciate! And because the wear is so lightweight and effortless, I don’t feel gross and heavy at the end of the day.

This is perfect for those No-Makeup-Makeup days! And I’ll keep playing around mixing it in my higher coverage, more matte items. Maybe I’m a little more forgiving because I got this for free and I don’t have to stress about whether or not I want to return it… but at only $35 this isn’t a bank breaker!

I’d say check it out if you are looking for a lightweight, sheer tint foundation! But remember – GLOW.
