Review: Myra VitaGlow Tinted Moisturizer

Posted on: March 8, 2013

One of the things I recently purchased in my last haul from Watsons is Myra VitaGlow Tinted Facial Moisturizer in Ivory. As I mentioned, I was looking for a product that will take the place of moisturizer, sunblock, and face base to greatly reduce prep time in the rushed mornings. I have heard good feedback for Myra as a brand, and of all their available moisturizers I chose this one since it is tinted.

This 35-ml tube costs Php135 at Watsons, and as far as I can tell, comes in only two shades: Ivory and Beige. Only Ivory was available in the Watsons branch I went to (Dela Costa branch in Makati City). As you can see, it came sealed for your protection. There were no testers available, so I actually bought this unswatched with me hoping that it will be a good match for my skin tone.

The tube is a slender one with the cap at the bottom. Just a slight twist will open it. The front of the tube tells us that this product has minerals, SPF15, the shade Ivory, and is vitamin E-enriched (For healthy, glowing, young-looking skin). It also says it’s hypo-allergenic and dermatologist-tested.

The back of the tube tells us about the product’s features, directions for use, and warnings. The ingredients are Tocopheryl acetate, Glycerin, Dimethicone, Titanium dioxide, and Methoxycinnamate, which I found in Unilab’s website. I’ve swatched this already on my hand in my previous post.

Now it’s time to test it out on my face. Let me start by showing you my bare face (cleaned previously with a facial cleanser). Notice the yellowish lids and dark undereyes, as well as some red spots on my cheeks.

After applying Myra VitaGlow Tinted Moisturizer, I get an even color all over my face. My eyelids and undereyes are now of a similar shade and the red spots are no longer so red.

I applied the rest of my makeup, which is basically just eyeliner for both eyes and eyebrows (Ever Bilena eye pencil), lip balm (Snoe Beso Balm), and lipstick (Ever Bilena Matte lipstick).

Not so bad for a quick 3-minute face for the office, don’t you think? So far I have not experienced any itchiness or breakouts from this, so I am quite happy with this product.

Pros: inexpensive; available in drugstores and supermarkets; didn’t break me out; matches my skin tone; 3-in-1 product reduces prep time in the morning

Cons: only two shades available

[…] so I can mix them to get my preferred shade. To be honest, I think this is a reformulation of their tinted moisturizer, which I also reviewed […]
