I have been wearing this for years and get compliments all the time about how flawless my “skin” is. My skin does not look great without this product. I am sensitive to every other makeup product I have tried. This one is a keeper - I’m lucky I found one more bottle of it in my cupboard. Please keep making it!
I love both the tinted and untinted moisturizers. Absorbs well into the skin.
My only complaint is that I can’t get all the contents out of the bottle and wish that the product was available in a jar so I can enjoy every last bit of moisturizer!
The perfect lotion for everyday. Efficiently hydrates and unifies the skin with a subtle tint. You barely notice it is there but you do notice you have a nicer skin. I love that no one can tell you have make-up on.
I love this formula so much, it protects and hydrates my skin while leaving a lovely glow
I love this tinted SPF moisturiser! I use this product every day. It feels nice and light to wear throughout the day (and I live in a tropical climate!) it is good under makeup. I also love that I have never had a problem with the tint coming off onto my clothes -big bonus! It’s a beautiful natural shade, not orange and it just blends into my own skin colour. I feel lightly protected when I’m driving or ducking into the shops etc. I can’t live without this one.
Questions & answersAsk a question
Can you mix Angel Drops with this . I am looking for a dewy finish. Also would this product be the closest to a foundation in your range?
The Luminous Angel Drops and the Snowflower Illuminating Face Oil both work really well to create a dewy glow. The Tinted Vanilla Silk lotion is the closest to foundation in our range. It suits all skin tones as adjusts naturally to your complexion and will also even out skin tone. If your skin is olive or dark the other product that this mixes well with is the Luminous Angel Highlighting Creme.
Does this clog pores because of the high coconut oil content?
Our products are formulated with specific carrier oils (Camellia Seed Oil is one of the main ones) which are designed to transport the coconut oil deep into the skin layers, ensuring that clogging of pores does not occur. Clogging occurs when coconut oil is used on its own or in products where there are no carrier oils and hence the oil remains on the skin surface leading to congestion. This is definitely not the case with our formulas.
How much zinc is in this moisturiser? and does it have nano particles?
10-12% zinc. We do not use nano particles.
What sun protection factor does this product provide?
This provides a sun protection factor of 15. We recommend using this for incidental sun exposure (eg going to the shops). If you are being exposed to direct sunshine, we recommend you use our Basking Beauty Sunscreen which provides SPF50 protection.
Hello! Is this enough spf for the Australian summer?
This tinted lotion contains an SPF of 15. We recommend using this tinted lotion for incidental sun exposure, eg when shopping, going to work etc.
When in direct sunlight for more than 10 minutes we recommend using our Basking Beauty SPF 50 sunscreen.
Hi! Can I check if the benefits of this are the same as that of the original No.4 hydrating lotion? Thanks!
The benefits are defintely the same. The only difference between this formula and the non-tinted lotion are that this formula contains the tint along with a higher natural sun protection factor due to the red raspberry seed oil and black raspberry seed in the formula (the non tinted lotion just contains black raspberry seed oil).
Hi, does this come in a lighter shade? Both videos you’ve posted show quite dark skin and light reviews aren’t good. It sounds so beautiful but I can’t seem to find a lighter option and thought I was perhaps just missing something?
We only have one shade. This can be mixed with the No.4 Vanilla Silk Hydrating lotion to lighten.
Does the coconut oil in this product cause irritation or breakouts?
Using coconut oil in our formulas should not cause any breakouts or skin reactions. This is due to the way we blend various oils in our formulas. For instance, the use of Camellia Seed Oil ensures that the coconut oil and other oils penetrate deeply into the skin and do not sit on the skin surface which is what can lead to breakouts.
How has this formula changed?
The updated formula has had a few tweaks:
Neutral flattering tone - Our upgraded lotion has a neutral-toned mocha tint more suited to both dark and light complexions. The tint adjusts to your natural skin tone once blended for a beautiful sunkissed glow.
Silky and smooth –The new formula has a silky texture for ease of application and more effective absorption to ensure the product blends seamlessly into the skin.
