Séana S.'s Beauty Product Reviews
Love this bronzer. It develops nicely for a tanned look or as a contour. It is a little more orangey than I'd like but not that noticeable. It can look shiny in the casing but goes on without which is great! It lasts in the water too! I actually liked the smell which was kinda vanilla-y but didn't stick around, which is good. All in all, it was a good purchase!
The consistency was perfect! So too was the hue which suited my neutral undertones unlike other more expensive tinted moisturizers that made me look orange. If my skin was being problematic, a second application helped though most of the time one was just fine. I also love that if I do go swimming with it on, I won't look like I've melted. It's also at a very reasonable price point. Sephora recently stopped carrying it which was a big bummer for myself, though you can still purchase it from TheBalm's website. This is my go-to tinted moisturizer!
Great scent, cute packaging, great ingredients, so-so moisturizing
The scent and packaging denifinitely won me over. It moisturizes my lips okay but not crazy-great (my skin's very dry from being on Acutane). I find I have to really work on rubbing it in my lips to build up a decent barrier for my lips. I also find that I have to reapply more often than my other go-to lip chap. The ingredients listed were pretty awesome from what I remember; lots of natural oils. I also loved how inexpensive it was (around $3)! All that being said, it's a good buy on a tight budget but not the best for actual moisturizing factor.
