I threw away the box, and I can't find the ingredients listing anywhere. When I do, I will update this post. This product is no longer available on MACY's or Estee Lauder sites. Maybe its getting discontinued, but you can still purchase this in stores.
This is housed in a squeeze tube bottle. The fine nozzle helps the product from splatting around. As you squeeze out product, you get a grainy, grey cream. As you start to spread it around, it quickly emulsifies into a thin consistency and the grey color starts fading and blend into the skin.
From the swatches you can see that this moisturizer has a somewhat of a grainy texture. It has these tiny 'beads' that break and emulsify when you spread the product on the skin. I pretty sure these 'beads' activates or releases the tint. The result is a 'I've-been-sun-bathing' glow.
The picture does not do this justice!
Its quite natural and I do like it even though I'm not too keen in bronzing. I think those who are extremely pale might not like this product much. Even though this is a tint, it does tan you up quite a bit. I have combination skin, and I've found that after maybe 4-5 hrs the color starts to fade (cheek area) and my skin looks uneven. I know that Nicola of Pixiwoo loves this and she has dry skin. So those with a drier skin type might find this to be slightly more long lasting. I do like how it moisturizes my skin; keeps me hydrated all day (I've used this in the winter too). Much better than other tinted moisturizers in the market.
All in all, a nice product if you like looking bronzed but nothing to run out and get right away. I probably won't repurchase. Perhaps there will be an upgraded version of this which is why I can't find it on the website but either than that, I know you can still get this at the Lauder counters in MACY's.
