M Asam Perfect Teint II Review

I have been testing a few skincare items over the past couple of weeks & I thought I would share with you one of my favourites so far. It is by the brand M. Asam, which is a German cosmetic company founded in 1963, I had never heard of this brand before and being a skincare addict I like testing out new products but I’m always slightly worried that I will upset my routine or that something will break me out. Thankfully this product has been no trouble for my skin so that’s a massive plus.

This M. Asam Perfect Teint IIis a product for reducing the appearance of fine lines, controlling oil and giving you a skin a smooth base for applying your makeup. The first thing that struck me about this product is its constancy, it feels so light and fluffy almost like a mousse. It takes a little getting used to how much to apply but I learnt that less is more, it is easy to smooth over the skin and dries down to quite a matte finish. It feels very light on my skin and once it had been on my skin for a couple of minutes It felt very soft and hydrating.

You apply this after your moisturiser but I would say that if you use quite a hydrating serum you could get away with using this instead of a moisturiser, especially if you don’t like to layer your products that much. This leaves my skin velvety smooth and my foundation glides on over the top and helps give me a flawless finish. I have been reaching for this most days during this crazy heat wave we have been having as it helps keep my foundation from slipping off my face and also controls my oily T Zone. I would say this is essentially a smoothing primer & a damn good one at that.

Face Cream

I have to say I was a little sceptical at first as I had never heard of this brand but after using this Perfect Teint II I’m intrigued to try more. This product is an oily girl’s best friend & it does a pretty good job of smoothing the fine lines, some of my wrinkles are just too big for this to smooth but I think that’s to be expected, it still makes my skin look even, natural and my foundation looked so good over the top. This cream doesn’t really have a scent, my husband thinks it slightly floral but I can’t make a scent out, either way, it’s not overpowering.

The packaging feels luxurious and the product is in a nice frosted glass jar with a bright green lid.

M Asam Perfect Teint II – £27.99 for 50ml.

Pixi Illuminating Tint and Conceal

The Pixi store just off Carnaby Street in London is a really lovely shop. Their staff are always friendly and eager to help with matching you up to foundations & explaining their products. Many of which have dual purpouse. I just love products that double up. Saves space and money.

I have had a few Pixi products over the years. Their eyeshadows are pigmented and have great staying power. So i wanted to pick up something that would act as a skin illuminator and help make my skin look more glowing and fresh for summer (if it ever turns up.) I was directed to this Pixi Illuminating Tint and Conceal it has a tinted moisturiser as well as a concealer which i thought was fab. I was matched to the shade No1 Light Glow (no tan here.)

The Illuminating tint part of it i have used in two ways. First i have used it as a light almost sheer coverage tinted moisturiser. It doesn’t provide much coverage but is so good for summery warm days when you do not want to wear alot of makeup but it gives your skin a really fresh healthy glow. I have also used it as more of a illuminating base under a foundation for a underlying glow whist getting better coverage with your foundation. So it works well for both uses.

The other part of this product is a concealor. Its a creamy consistency thats quite dry initially but if you warm it up on the back of your hand or with your fingers it applies alot better. I have this in a light shade as i like to use it under my eyes and i like to lighten that area rather than cover up with a dark concealor.  It a good quality concealor and if you powder it it will last all day.

This Pixi Illuminating Tint and Conceal costs £21.50 and you get 28.4g of the tinted moisturiser and 2.6g of concealor.  It contains lots of great ingredients for your skin like Aloe Vera, Vitamin E and Vitamin C and one of the best parts is it contains SPF 20.

The concealor is the round swatch and the illuminating moisturiser is the line swatch.

I will be using this alot if the weather ever sorts its self out and gives us a summer!! What Pixi products have you enjoyed using and would recommend?
