HALL OF SHAME: Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Oil Free

22 May 2009

Well, sadly this belongs to my Hall of Shame.
Don't get me wrong, I love Laura Mercier but it's just this didn't work for me.
Let me tell you why i bought this baby in the first place:
1. Oil Free
2. SPF 20
3. Tinted Moisturiser (buidable)
At the time that i bought this i was using Clinique's Tinted Moisturiser and I was already happy with it but I thought i could do better with a better SPF.
In Australia, Laura Mercier is quite expensive. Like this baby here costed me $75 :(
I was willing to get it at that time because of the countless reviews (good ones) that I read/watched/heard.
The first few days - I noticed that it actually oxidised on me. Like I put it on first thing in the morning - all good. After a few hours later I looked like I just came out from a Tanning Salon.
Then after the first - i broke out in tiny pimples! It's not a hormonal one as it was just on the surface and it's just too many of them :(
I've stopped using it and haven't touched it since.
If this product works for you then good on you. I really hoped that it did the same to me.
I've got a broken heart :(


  1. Oh no! I just bought this item! But I guess I will have to try it out and hope for the best. Love your blog by the way:))))

  2. You've just confirmed what I have suspected for weeks, I haven't had pimples in years yet since I've been using this and I also broke out in tiny pimples on my forehead, couldn't put my finger on whether it was the humidy or something else. Now I Know!
