Natural Collection Tinted Moisturiser Review

As of late, i've been really enjoying minimal makeup. Don't get me wrong, i love putting on a bit of slap for an event or partay.

But, when wanting to put a light layer of makeup on for the day to emphasis my features or to even out my skin tone i headed straight to Natural Collection in Boots, to pick out a product that would give me a easy simple look.

First off, i'm going to share my thoughts on their Tinted Moisturiser, here's what Boots describe it as...

Our Tinted Moisturiser has been created with a lightweight formula that helps leave skin feeling hydrated whilst giving a hint of sheer natural colour. Our little pick me up in a tube.

Kind to skin. Enriched with camomile to help soothe and protect.

Dermatologically tested and fragrance free.

How it applies
Dissecting their description, i totally agree how lightweight this product is. It feels in no way heavy or cakey when applied to skin nor does it look it either. It doesn't settle into any crevices around my nose or any smile lines throughout the day which is fab. 

I apply 2 little splodges to my fingers, warm the product up slightly with my other hand and go straight into applying it has as i would a moisturiser.
Using my hands, the product can be evenly distributed around my face quick and easily and instantly gives my skin an even tone. 

How it looks
It doesn't look greasy as you would expect to find from a hydrating moisturiser based product, it settles onto the skin well and looks gives me a healthy glow. 
I do set my t-zone with powder as i would with any product as betty can get a bit sweaty throughout the day, but my skin will look natural with a hint of colour for a good portion of the day.
As it is so lightweight and your thinking there is a few areas of your skin you want some extra coverage, whip out your fave concealer and apply that to the areas you wish, the tinted moisturiser works so well with other products and doesn't affect their performance.

What's in it
How fancy, camomile in the mix sounds lovely. Here's what google says about Camomile and the benefits it gives the skin so know what this hint of a tint moisturiser is doing to our skin...

 Chamomile posses many powerful skin properties such as anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, antibacterial, antiseptic, and contains essential oils and antioxidants. Additionally, is a hypoallergenic and helps to reduce skin irritants by neutralising free radicals.

So not only does the camomile give a soothing, natural and gentle scent to the product so the product can go free of any other nasty fragrances, it has anti bacterial property to help with any flare ups on the skin, to calm down any redness we may have without using a ogre green concealer that gives us a very fetching shrek look. 

I agree a bajillion% that this tinted moisturiser is a little pick me up in a tube. 
 My skin looks healthy, even in tone and yet oh so natural. I'm always amazed too how i can achieve it all so quickly with just using my fingers.

I highly, highly recommend this product if your looking for something, natural, quick and easy and something that is only £2.99, absolute bargain, i shall be repurchasing again FO SHO. 

To see it applied in action, i filmed a get ready with me that you can watch here...

I've got a dream - Repunzel

Is there something in life that you long for, that you think of daily? Something that would suit you so well in so many aspects of life and know a few ways to go about it, but don’t always have the motivation or belief to do it.

For me, blogging is my ultimate goal. In so many ways it would suit my life like a glove. My hobbies, my interests, my physical and mental health, financially.

Everyday I think about blogging, becoming a blogger, how life would be, what I could talk about, what photos I would create, the friends I could meet on the way, the ones I could help, the fun that could be had. Alongside the negative thoughts too… I’ve left it too late, I should have starter years ago, no one would read, what if my little blog never took of so I could have my dream of becoming a full time blogger, who would notice me in a saturated sea of other blogs.

Daily, I sit and ponder and some days the motivation is real and I think right, I shall write a blog post and do so. But then other days I have no inspiration and zero motivation to even turn the computer on unless I’m perusing Superdrug.

I saw a quote today that Corrie has made into a phone wallpaper that caught my eye and really struck a spark in my brain… ‘’ Dreams don’t work unless you do ‘’

In the words of Rapunzel, I have a dream and when my eyes scanned across those words the aspiring girl boss inside of me screamed with agreement.

How do I think I’m going to achieve my dreams of becoming a blogger when I don’t even take action or put work in to even begin my journey? I need to work and I need to work hard.

So, I am back & I’m ready to work towards my dream & I can’t wait for you all to come on this journey too.

As Rapunzel continues, ‘’ with every passing hour, I’m so glad I left my tower’’ but it my case with every day and post that gets me ever closer I will be so glad I started.
