Review: Witch Anti-Blemish Tinted Moisturiser

I've had this sitting around for almost a year now and yes I've used it. But I've never had the guts to use it for a prolonged period of time to test it's claims as I'm a full coverage girl. I know, I know, I'm Mrs Shallow! But actually you know, I'm coming around to the idea that I don't need to have a medium/full coverage foundation on at all times! It's a steep learning curve, but I'm getting there!

As always I've included a summary at the end :) 

The Basics 
This is a pretty simple packaged product coming in a squeezy tube holding a standard 30ml of product. I purchased mine from Superdrug for £5.99, it was in the skincare section with the rest of the Witch line. There are three colours available - light, medium and dark. It's me and my pale skin here, so as you probably guessed, I have it in light! It is fragrance and oil free, but does contains Witch Hazel, which is a natural astringent.  

The Formula 
Being called a tinted moisturizer one would assume it had a smooth thin texture to it. And you would be correct, bonuses are that it sinks in nicely to the skin and doesn't leave me looking oily half way through the day! Although my skin is combination so I'm not super prone to excessive oily skin. As for moisturization I find that it's nothing super, and tend to let another moisturizer settle into my skin before using. The anti-blemish aspect is very hard to talk about, but whatever the reason my skin has been looking better recently - but I've got a new cleanser and been exercising more too! 


Colour & Coverage  
The colour of this squirted (I couldn't think of a better word, sorry!) straight out of the tube is rather scary looking, being a good few shades darker than my skintone. But actually once blended in you couldn't even compare it to the once scary shade. And actually it looks fine on my face, although the colour does have a tendency to sit on the skin a little - in a sheered out fainter way! The coverage is nice and sheer like you'd expect. Looking natural whilst evening everything out.

Below I'm wearing the Tinted Moisturizer and no concealer/powder.


The Good - contains witch hazel, fragrance free, oil free, coverage is reasonable for a tinted moisturizer, great for back to school and work.

The Not so Good - witch hazel is very low down the ingredients list, sits on the skin a little, not a wonderful moisturizer.

Would I repurchase? Potentially, I have taken to wearing it to work for the 'I promise I'm not wearing make-up!' look.

Who might like it? I can see this being great for teenagers, having a small amount of coverage, an anti-blemish formula and being oil free.

Price & Availability - £5.99, Superdrug. 

Witch also have a BB Cream, which I have yet to manage to hunt down! I really want to get my hands on one though as I'm just a little bit obsessed with BB Cream. And a skincare company has to have a winning formula right? Anyway thanks everyone for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed the post, Hannah

  1. I bought this as my usual foundation was making my skin too oily... this made my skin too dry, wah! x

    1. Yeah it's not particularly moistuizing is it! Perhaps try a BB Cream instead, 17 do a good one.

  2. Looks pretty good. I have to stop buying 'bases' now as I've realised I do only have the one face after all haha. I'm thinking of buying the Witch pressed powder but I don't think I've seen it in my local stores yet.

    1. I think I need to stop as well, I have far too many! I have the pressed powder too, but don't think too much of it really. I mean how can the Witch Hazel effect your skin when it's not really in contact with it once over the rest of your face make-up? The ideas kool though, haha!

  3. What are you wearing on your lips? It looks amazing on you!

    1. Thank you Taylor! It's the MakeUp Academy Lip Liner in Red Drama - costs just £1!

  4. Very nice review of witch anti-blemish tinted moisturiser. I think people will love it and use the same!

  5. hey im a teen girl and i NEED something to use... foundation is way too heavy and my mom wont let me use it! so i was thinking if there are any good bb creams for a good price?

    1. If your mum'll let you Witch and Dr Jart both do nice BB Creams :)
