What it is:
A tinted facial moisturizer with SPF 20.
What it does:
Dior HydrAction Deep Hydration Skin Tint SPF 20 is a velvety, sheer face tint with ultra-fine pigments and light-reflecting micro-pearls. This luxurious texture creates a natural veil of fresh color and radiance, for the illusion of bare skin with the promise of perfect hydration. It corrects imperfections, evens the skintone, and also contains a SPF 20 sun protection and the irrigating Aquacapt™ Complex to reinforce the skin's natural moisture reserves all day long.
Size: 1.7 oz
PROS: I love this tinted moisturizer! It's the perfect moisturizer for me because it doesn't cause me to breakout ANNNDDD it hydrates my face (since I have dry skin) just the way the name implies; "hydrAction". It smells GREAT, not a puking, Elmer's Glue smell like some tinted moisturizers have, this one smells yummy to me for some reason. It also has sun protection! SPF 20, big bonus for the summertime! And perfect for the dry winter time as well. It's very easy to carry with you and it doesn't leak because it's not so runny. Also the coverage is pretty nice, not too much and not too little, but just enough to even out your skintone without making you look too obvious you are wearing anything so it's great for gals who wanna sport the natural sorta "no-makeup" look since it covers pretty well. It has light-reflecting pearls to really brighten up your face.***TIP*** To avoid the "streaking effect" you can apply it with a makeup sponge or your fingers like you normally would apply your moisturizer and then pat down your face with a sponge and some loose powder for it to "set" and give you a nice flawless look!
CONS: The price! Geez louise, $38 for some tinted moisturizer!?? I know to some of you that may be cheap but to those who are used to spending carefully, that can be a bit steep. I normally wouldn't pay that much myself for a mere tinted moisturizer because I am a cheap gal but luckily I had a store credit to use. :)
Please don't ask me for color recommendations because to be honest I don't know what would match you the best since there are only 4 colors. I personally just got Natural #2 knowing it would be a bit light on me because I was going to put my mineral foundation OVER IT, if I did it too matchy matchy it might make me look too dark ya dig? So the light shade and my normal shade balances each other out.
Overall? I love this baby, it really does what I need it to do and gives me a nice finish and natural coverage. Great for gals who have dry skin like me or if you tend to have dry skin in the Winter.
Apply it like you would your moisturizer:
My face all clean with JUST the Dior HydrAction Tinted Moisturizer, no other makeup used. As you can see I have dark circles because I never sleep... :(
