Review: Jouer Matte Moisture Tint Sunscreen

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Good day everyone!

Its about time that I review one of my most beloved product. After using this for the first time a couple months ago I was pretty much kicking myself in the butt for taking so long to finally try this out. I have had it on my wish list for over a year  mainly because there were no Jouer counters near me where I could swatch and see the product in person.

Packaging- Its in a matte plastic squeeze tube that feels really nice to the touch. It reminds me of the Laura Mercier foundation packaging.

Formulation- There are 6 shades total so the range is not great but because of the sheerness you should be able to find a shade that will fit you after its all rubbed in. The texture out of the bottle looks more mousse like than cream and even when you rub it in its extremely light. Although the name does have Matte, its not one of those matte products that will leave you looking all chalky and overly matte. The way I can describe this would be how you look right after you blot yourself.

I find that using a foundation is a bit heavy for everyday use so I like using tinted moisturizers on a day to day basis. From BB creams to other tinted moisturizers I have not used one that is comparable to this Jouer one. Its light, provides enough coverage to even out your skin tone, and it controls oil.

Besides skincare that I can say a definite yes to repurchasing with a more expensive price tag there aren’t many makeup product that I can say the same to but this Moisture Tint has definitely made it onto the list where I don’t mind paying the price for.

HolyGrail Stamp of approval!

Until next time,

Liebster Award

Thank you LittleMissTuxedoDress (Sillyfacealice) for nominating this blog for the Liebster Award! 

It’s awesome to be able to be exposed and get exposed to other bloggers that share the same interest. Although we live all over the world I find that to be one of the coolest things because we get to share with each other things that I have here in the US that you might not in other parts of the world and vice versa.

Here is the 11 questions from Alice:

1. When and why did you start your blog? I started this blog over a year ago but haven’t been very active until the past month when I decided that I am going to proactively keep my post consistent. The reason why I started was to share and document what I love and thats beauty, food, and travels.

2. What blog post are you the most proud of? This is hard but it would be my Healthy Eats: Turkey Tomato Sauce Brown Rice Pasta because the pictures turned out so nice.

3. What is your biggest beauty bad habit? When I am removing makeup from my face I probably rub a little harder then I should be especially when I am removing eye makeup. What can I say, sometimes I’m impatient.

4. What is your go-to special occasion/night out/date night look? Too many times have I tried to do something “special” that I don’t normally do and end up messing up, looking like crap to finally realize that you should just stick with something thats not too over the top that you know for sure you can perfect without screwing it up. I go for a neutral smokey look that I can do with my eyes closed.

5. What is one thing you love about yourself? Hmm.. I guess it would be that I can control and keep my temper in check. It takes a lot for me to show my annoyance/anger/temper. What I have learned is that if I know what I’m doing is correct and that I’m not cheating myself of anything then whatever negative comment anyone else says doesn’t matter.

6. If you could change one thing about the world what would it be? I would wish that there is a cure for arrogance. Nothing annoys me more than hearing/witnessing/seeing how arrogant some people are.

7. What is the top item on your beauty/fashion wish list right now? Beauty- Jeunesse Iluminesce Serum / Fashion – White Jeans

8. What is your favorite childhood movie? Any Disney Animated film. Lion King, Cinderella, Snow White, Alladin, Mulan, etc. I was so obsessed with those movies as a kid that I memorized all of them and would even reenact them while I watched it.

9. What are your 3 skincare staples? Cleanser (don’t have one that I can’t live without yet), Toner (SKII Facial Treatment Essence), Moisturizer ( Neutrogena Hydroboost Water Gel)

10. If you could meet one person dead or alive, who would it be and why? This is so hard! I would want to meet a fashion/beauty icon. I would pick someone that is already dead because if they were still alive I still have a slim possibility of meeting them in the future so I would pick Audrey Hepburn. She exerts such class and grace that truly shows how nothing is sexier than class. Hepburn has achieved such success in her career, humanitarian work, and personal struggles that shows us how much we are capable of doing in a lifetime.

11. Who is the most important person in ¬†your life and why? My grandma because while my parents were working to support the family and making sure that we can live a comfortable life my grandma was the one that retired to take care of me from day one. If there is a timer that shows how many hours we have spent with someone I’m sure I have spent the most time with her.
