I bought this tinted moisturizer last Fall because a fair-skinned woman in Lucky Magazine was claiming how she blushes at the drop of a hat (I feel your pain!!). She claimed that Dr. Hauschka’s Toned Day Cream with its beige undertones combatted her daily redness. “I must have that!!” I thought. Like most Dr. Hauschka products, it’s on the expensive side–$40 for a one ounce tube. But I justified the luxury price by telling myself, “if this cream is that woman’s red, splotchy skin cure, I have to try it!”
It’s a lovely moisturizer, but the coverage is so sheer that I can’t imagine how it would do a good job of combatting anyone’s redness. Also, I wish it had some more sun protection in the cream–Titanium Dioxide, a mineral sunscreen, is listed as the last ingredient in the list of good-for-you natural ingredients. I just wish it were a little further up on the list. Lastly, I feel like my face is more shiny when I use this moisturizer (although, granted, it is intended for a dry/mature skin type). I’ve read a lot of reviews from people who swear by this product though, so maybe they just have a more even complexion than I do. I truly wish I loved this product as much as they do!
Unfortunately, my lack of enthusiasm in this moisturizer will deter me from buying it again. My perfect tinted moisturizer will have more coverage plus some SPF. I’m planning on trying 100% Pure’s SPF 20 tinted moisturizer next…hopefully I’ll be more passionate about that purchase!
