A lightweight and light coverage tinted moisturizer

I have used the Juice Beauty Tinted Mineral Moisturizer SPF 30 in Ivory for the required 30-day period and would like to offer my review as follows:

The first thing I noticed upon opening the cap is the smell – it is the pleasant smell of what appears to be cucumbers or something grassy. The smell is fresh and clean and while I do not like to eat cucumbers, I do like the smell of them. This particular smell, however, is a bit too strong and could be toned down. That aside, once I applied the product I did notice that the color did not work for me (it was too light), and as a result it read too white on my skin despite that it blended in quickly and very well. Once blended, it leaves a nice sheen and it is not at all sticky, which is great.

I also found that the directions on the back of the tube were unusual. They stated to shake and knead the tube vigorously before each use. I’ve never had to do this with any lotion I’ve ever used, so I found it an odd request. I’m not sure how many times I did forget to do this and hope this didn’t change or in any way diminish the efficacy of the product. I assume this is due to the properties of the lotion, which has all-natural ingredients. A huge plus is the company and its mission to make all-natural products. I love when a company is green and cares about its customers, and clearly this company does.

Overall, I like the idea of a tinted moisturizer and I do like this one. I will finish off the tube and contemplate buying the formula in the correct color for my skin tone. This tinted moisturizer is perfect for someone with perfect skin who doesn’t expect much in the way of much coverage for imperfections. But I had to remind myself that this is not a foundation and it isn’t supposed to be one. The SPF is sufficient at 30, so I am happy with that aspect of the moisturizer. The best thing about it is that it didn’t leave my skin too greasy or shiny, which I really liked. Overall it’s a 7 out of a 10 product. What could make it a 10 for me would be having the darker shade that matches my skin tone better and to tone down the cucumber/grassy smell.

    nice product! I personally like the smell, but it might not be for everyone. It doesn't irritate my skin and I have very sensitive skin. It is a bit thick, so I like to add a bit of my non-spf mousterizer to it and it makes a nicer, gel like consistency.

    I used this for 6 weeks and have to give it away as I can no longer deal with that stinky smell of weeds from the product. It's also slightly drying. My husband can't handle the smell and has threatened to withold kisses if I don't get rid of it. Not impressed.
