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!

I have used BB creams since ’08/’09? I don’t really remember but it was when it started to become popular. BB Cream is a staple in my collection because its what I wear on days where I don’t feel like doing my makeup but I need something light. Its one of those products that is good to have around. When this concept of a cushion BB cream was on the market its one of those extremely intriguing things that a beauty addict wont be able to pass on.
I chose the Laneige Cushion BB because it is actually the most easily accessible given that its available at Target! I’m not sure if all cushion BB comes with a refill but mine did which was really nice because this definitely does not have as much product as a tube of BB cream.
I have been meaning to write this review since last year but never got around to it so I figured this is the perfect time to write one because I just finished my first pack. The refill is very easy to pop in and out so the refill process is extremely easy. With the refill, it also comes with a new pad so if your old one was getting a bit used and old then no worries because you have a new one!
Like most BB Creams, the shade selection is not great with only 2 that is catered more towards the lighter skin tones. the coverage is light to medium but more towards the lighter end. You can build it up by layering more on but I have found that the more I layer on, the quicker my skin will get oily. Generally I would have to blot about 3.5-5 hours in because it is not good at controlling oil at all.
I would recommend this to be part of a on-the-go makeup kit because of how simple and easy it is to use. You don’t have to worry about bringing an extra brush or if your hands are clean to apply this. Although this is a lighter formulation I don’t find myself relying on this during the hotter months because it is more on the moisturizing spectrum. If you have dry skin then this would work for you but for me that has combination skin its a bit trickier. I like to have this as an option in my collection but its definitely not part of my everyday routine.
Have you tried other cushion BB that you would recommend?
Until next time,
I like to believe that our skin has a mind of its own. We can go a couple days with the most glowing perfect skin fooling us to think that we have finally found the perfect skin care regime and then it just goes downhill from there. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone through this treacherous cycle time and time again. In the past week or two I have noticed my skin starting to flare up and become susceptible to tiny little red bumps (like small acne) that forms over the course of the day then be gone in a day or two. What I need is to give my skin a little break from all the different chemicals that we use in our cleanser, moisturizer, toner, makeup, etc. to give my skin a little detox I use this scrub that only has one ingredient and is so inexpensive but works wonders for irritated skin. I present to you…Oats!
Oats or Oatmeal will make your skin feel so moisturized and soft after you use it. There are so many different uses that it makes this a Chameleon of Skin Care products in my opinion. You can use it as a face/body mask, scrub, bath, consumption, sun protection, etc. What we will be talking about today is using it as a Face Wash/Scrub.
The first time I used Oats to wash my face was after a bad trip to a facial that left my skin with a very weird bumpiness to it about 2 years ago. My skin was definitely reacting to whatever products that was used on me so I decided to do some research and found that Oats has anti-inflammatory benefits. It calms the skin and can also relieve itchiness. For those that have eczema you can use Oats as a body scrub or even take an Oatmeal Bath to relieve your skin (i haven’t tried this because I don’t have eczema). After using the Oats to wash my face it feels instantly better and plumped. After a week or so of doing this my skin went back to normal and was better than ever. I recommend you to try using Oats to wash your face because there are numerous benefits…
2. Relieves Itchiness / Irritation
4. Cleanses by soaking up Oils and dirt from your skin
5. Phenols and Flavonoid in oats acts as sun protection for the skin
How to Use it…
1. You only need a pinch of oats. You can use pretty much any Oats that you would cook with. (not the instant individually packaged ones though)
2. Place it in the palm of your hand and add water onto the oats.
3. Press on the oats a couple times until the water starts to get murky from the oats breaking down.
4. Wet your face with the Oat water then just grab the wet oats and start using it as a face scrub. You will start to notice the oat breaking down even more as you scrub and the “juice” from the oat will almost form a sort of lather on our skin. After you’re done, rinse. (this does get a little messy so its best if you have a faucet catcher thing to filter the oats when you wash it off. If you don’t then wipe off the oats before your rinse your face)
Whether you’re suffering from major skin irritation or have perfectly fine skin, you should try this at least once just to see how well it works. Every time my skin starts acting up I will resort to this solution almost as a Restart button. If you have tried this then please let me know how it worked out for you because I would love to know if your skin loves it as much as mine.
Until next time,
