ESPA Naturally Radiant Tinted Moisturiser | Beauty

You may have seen last year that I was obsessed in finding the perfect foundation, and I never did; but that's because I've been looking for the completely wrong product. I stuck with a BB cream for the better part of a year however, it was drying my skin out (which apparently is in actually really good condition!). I was recommended to try a tinted moisturiser as it just provides the minimal coverage I was looking for, and have have used one ever since.

When I found out ESPA were looking for bloggers to try our their new naturally radiant tinted moisturiser I decided to give it a go. I have had many bad experiences of their products before resulting in allergies and many sensitivities to which their counter staff are very unsure how this could happen with their products being extremely natural etc, so I was a little dubious about the product reacting. 
What ESPA have to say
 'Fragrance free and suitable for all skin types, Naturally Radiant Tinted Moisturiser SPF 15 is the perfect alternative to foundation for a natural-looking complexion. Matte mineral pigments are fused with jojoba to create four blendable shades that can be layered to enjoy a sheer and beautifully lightweight finish while subtly concealing imperfections.' 
What I thought
chose the blush 02 shade; I think either shade nude 01 or blush 02 would have been well suited to my skin tone, and I was correct. Blush gives me a radiant glow without the yellow tones making my skin orange, and makes me look a lot healthier. AND there were no reactions at all! I'm not sure whether it's because there are different ingredients in this product, or if it was related to the MUR oil control fixing spray I've been using but it worked really well. The product lasted all day, and didn't leave my skin as oily as most products would do. 

It does come with a hefty price tag however, at £32. I am currently using the NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser which is a few pounds cheaper, but would definitely repurchase the ESPA product when I've run out of the sample and the NARS product. When comparing the two, ESPA definitely left me looking with a healthier, more radiant glow. 


  1. I love this, I have the lightest shade and think it's amazing. It's good to see you'd buy it over the nars one xx

    1. I think I'd probably opt for the lighter nude shade for winter etc, but definitely blush looks good for when the sun stays longer! x
