Bioderma Photoderm Max SPF50 Tinted Cream

If you are an avid globetrotter, like to ski, lounge in the tropics or simply laze around by the poolside, this beaut of a product is an essential to have in your beauty bag. Pushing aside the over used word BB cream, I quite like that Bioderma returns back to the traditional 'tinted cream' marketing strategy. I feel it's a classic that won't go out of fashion unlike BB creams. 

The tinted cream is of a golden colour and leaves behind the most beautiful glow on the skin with a teensy bit of coverage, enough to cover a Rudolph nose and cheek situation and brighten up that skin. Don't expect much though as it's more of a poolside essential so as to make you look rather au naturale and glowing from within. 

When I read online I heard quite a few people saying how this leaves their face very shiny mid-day. I on the other hand found this to be one of the most demi-matte tinted cream formulations I had tried till date, making it perfect for combination-oily skin girls. Containing SPF 50, don't expect a pea sized amount to offer day long sun protection. It will need reapplication and you will have to apply a good almond sized amount for the SPF to work effectively. 

That's not a problem here as the light weight nature of the formula allows one to slap it on generously. It looks good in photos, did not make my skin react and almost has no scent to it. I have more trust in a tinted cream when it comes from a skincare brand hence this Bioderma one is a must to check-out for these last few days of Summer.
