Dior Hydra Life Pro-Youth Skin Tint


One notch up from a tinted moisturizer but not quite to foundation level, Dior's Skin Tint delivers a veil of natural luminosity that had my colleague remarking, “you look glowy”.

I've been on a tinted moisturizer hunt for ages. Of course there are plenty on the market, but some are too watery, some too thick, some too sunscreen-y (all hail SPF, but I could do without the smell). This one, in my opinion, is just right. On a transparency scale, it's pretty concentrated, so a little goes a long way—treat it more like a foundation to even out skin tone (I use another moisturizer before for optimum hydration) and you're good to go.

    After reading this review I bought some, and it's exactly what I've been looking for forever. I have pale skin and tinted moisturisers always look orange on me, but not this one!

    This is truly a fabulous tinted moisturizer and I consider myself an expert having tried nearly them all. I prefer Laura Mercier's tinted moisturizer in the summer when I want something lighter on my skin. But for all other seasons, i want something that makes me look more "finished." This CD product leaves a really velvet, almost-matte-but-with a-glow finish that is spectacular. I have fair, dry skin and a little melasma and it covers it beautifully. People always ask me about my skin and how it glows... Which is fabulous considering I am almost 43! Of course, don't count on the spf as your sun protection, layer something under and even add some SPF mineral powder on top. I was at the drug store the other day, and picked up CoverGirl's Natureluxe which, for a drugstore brand, is quite impressive for people on a budget, FYI ... And your blog is fabulous, btw!

    Honestly, I would LOVE this more if it came in more color options. I bought the medium tint and it was fine in the winter but once I get tan in the summer it just makes my forehead look ashy and that's not cute. And the next color up is a bit too dark - I actually tried combining the the med/dark together but that didn't work either. I didn't want to see this moisturizer go to waste so I gave it to my sister that's just a smidge lighter than me. Unfortunately, it made her break out. She doesn't want to throw it out either so she's using it sparingly.

    Any suggestions for a tinted moisturizer without chemical sunscreens? I'm allergic to it, so all I can wear for sun protection is zinc and titanium-dioxide formulas. I can't for the life of me find a good tinted moisturizer that doesn't have chemical sunscreens in it. Any suggestions?

    May I ask if you did indeed use tint #2 as your picture indicates?
    Thanks so much, adore your blog,
