Bethenny Frankel has introduced a new Face & Body line, appropriately named after the “Skinnygirl” franchise that has turned her into a entrepreneurial powerhouse. Included in the collection is the Tinted Daily Moisturizer. Since spring and summer are perfect seasons for tinted moisturizers, I decided to give this one a try.
One of the goals of the Skinnygirl brand is to create beauty products that are natural, healthy and affordable. The Skinnygirl Tinted Moisturizer comes in a tube with it’s own brush applicator at the end. I was impressed by the inclusion of a brush–I didn’t expect that in a tinted moisturizer of under $12. However, in my use, the brush is both a help and a hindrance. While I really wanted to use it, I consistently had difficult getting a streak-free finish and had problems with the applicator staying “open” so that the product dispensed smoothly.
Once the tinted moisturizer was applied to the skin, however, the Tinted Daily Moisturizer certainly had a silky feel to it and gave good coverage. It also has an SPF 15 in the formula. My impression is that this is a good product, and while the intentions were good with the brush, in my opinion, it would be better without. There are three available shades, including Sand (light), Beige (medium, which was the shade I tested) and Mocha (dark).
The Skinnygirl Tinted Daily Moisturizer is available at WalMart and walmart.com. Have you tried the Skinnygirl Tinted Daily Moisturizer or any other Skinnygirl products yet? What did you think?
