Tried and Tested: Essence my skin tinted moisturiser Review

Hello everyone :):)

Today I'm going to review something that I'm basically using everyday now!! We were given this among others at the Catrice launch.

So this comes in 2 varieties; 1 for light skin and 1 for medium to dark skin and has 50 ml of product and comes in a box.. It's oil fee.

I have a soft spot for essence packaging, as it's always so nice and colourful!

Here are the swatches:

 I know they look to light and too dark like that but believe me,  when you blend it on your skin, it will look very natural. In fact I also blended them for you guys so you can have an idea:

 Left side: medium to dark, right side: light

  Left side: medium to dark, right side: light

What it says:

Skin care that you can see, feel& smell ! 

The intensively caring moisturizer with a touch of make-up matches the skin tone perfectly -for a natural, flawless complexion. The formulation-enriched with peach seed oil & acai berry extract - cares, protects and supplies skin with moisture up to 24 hours. Light reflecting pigments give the skin a healthy and fresh glow. With protective uva/uvb filters and a fruity fragrance.

It also says on the product that peach seed oil insures soft and smooth skin and acai berry extract, which is rich in antioxidants, protects the skin from environmental damages.

What do I think ?

The smell is amazing! I applied it on my hand and I noticed I could still faintly smell it after an hour.
I love how my skin feels so moisturised and protected when I use it! I can also feel like my skin is breathing !
 Since I don't have problematic skin, I just wear it alone, but some might want to wear foundation over it. 

I will definitely buy this when mine finishes! Not sure when they will be available for sale, so will keep you updated!
