Saturday is almost over, but I still wanted to get a quick review in for Sample-Ready Saturday. I got this sample of the Jouer in November’s Birchbox in the shade Linen (which was a surprisingly good match for my NC20 skin), but I only had a chance to try it recently.
I was surprised by how much I liked this. The coverage is much better than what I was expecting – on the level of a BB cream, not just a tinted moisturizer. It also does live up to its claim that its matte, but it’s not overly drying. It reminds me of the Smashbox BB cream, but much less grainy/powdery.
The swatch really doesn’t do it justice as to its texture.
The one thing that really disappointed me about this was the SPF level – only 15 SPF and it calls itself a sunscreen?! I would expect at least 30. I probably won’t be following up with a full-size purchase, because there are more BB creams that are just as good with more SPF.
Have you tried this product before? What are your favorite tinted moisturizers/BB creams for the summer?
