This came a few weeks back in my Birchbox, and was one of the last products I got around to trying out, not because I had negative expectations (I had none) but simply because it is very tough for any skincare/foundation product to beat out my two beauties, Luxiva Tinted Moisturizer and Aveeno Tinted Moisturizer. It’s described on the Juice website as a “12-in-1 color correcting cream for glowing, radiant, ageless skin,” and is an organic product.
Application: Coming out of the tube as a tan-colored cream, as one might expect, the Repair Cream blends on well and easily, no neon tones like the Pixi Primer(shudder).
Texture/Smell: I didn’t like how heavy it felt going on my skin – I prefer light face creams that don’t feel like they’re clogging up my pores, and this very much did – my face felt distinctly oily after applying it. The oily feeling did go away – I didn’t notice it anymore when I touched my skin a few hours later – but for a low-maintenance girl like me with sensitive skin, it’s definitely not what I’m looking for. It also had a strong, unpleasant chemical smell coming out of the tube, though that also went away quickly once I’d applied it.
Effectiveness: It stayed on well all day, no itching or discomfort, and I noticed that even at the end of the day I still had a nice natural glow. It doesn’t, however, pack the wattage-power (while still looking natural!) of either the Luxiva or Aveeno moisturizers, so I’ll be sticking with those, both of which are much lighter and much, much cheaper.
Overall: Lose It!
