Chanel Hydramax Active Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15

16.8.09
I have been using a big sample of Hydramax Tinted Moisturizer SPF15 by Chanel recently and here is my point of view on it.

I am not particularly fond of tinted moisturizers because I have always thought they make pores dirty and they stick to skin more than foundation because they work as a moisturizer, I am not sure this is actually possible but that is my sort of paranoid on that.

Having watched Anna Saccone's videos on youtube (http://www.youtube.com/user/TheStyleDiet) and her amazing pics and also the ones by Bubblegarm (http://bubblegarm.blogspot.com/ ) as well as reading their blog entries made me think about the possibility of changing my current hated powder foundation routine by some tinted moisturizer as they do. And then the big sample by Chanel just came to my hands.

Of course and as usual, the shade is too dark for me (number 20, Golden), so I had to mix it with La Roche Posay Effaclar H moisturizer and then the blend was applied to my skin.


Surprisingly enough, the result was all right: the dewy, even, slightly tanned finish I had always dreamt of. The cons were it was not as even as I wanted so I used some powder afterwards to set the whole lot on. I used Clinique Almost Powder Makeup in shade number 3, by the way. That helped a lot, the brush just mixed all onto my face.

Some Nars Laguna later and the makeup result was really acceptable, and my face showed a really nice makeup.

I will continue using this these days so I will tell you how it all goes and if it breaks me out or anything.

XOXO
Updated info:
I forgot to mention that this moisturizer has the typical smell of other Chanel skincare products. It contains fragance and the first time I used it, it was quite uncomfortable but now I got used to it and I do not notice it anymore.

  1. Does it have much fragrance like other Chanel products? I noticed Chanel over-perfumes their skin care products... I have not yet used a tinted moisturizer but did use Clinique's tinted sunblock. Liked the results... Didn't notice it getting into pores...
