11 Reviews

Availability: Clicks stores nationwide

This moisturiser offers intensive care and gives your skin a pleasant fresh feeling. The lightly tinted cream adapts to your skin tone to ensure a natural smooth-looking complexion. Peach kernel oil and acai berry extracts pamper, protect and offer moisture for up to 24 hours. What’s more, light-reflecting pigments provide a subtle shimmer for natural radiance. This moisturiser is available for lighter, medium and darker skin tones.

What we say:
‘Essence’s My Skin Tinted Moisturiser is perfect for moms of pre-teens who want to try make-up, but don’t want their kids looking like clowns. (Or worse, but we won’t go there…) This moisturiser adds a slight tint while creating a smooth canvas of your skin, and because it’s ultra light, it’s perfect for summer. Leave your foundation at home if you’re heading out to the beach (or pool) and drop this handy moisturiser in your beach bag. Essence’s My Skin Tinted Moisturiser offers more cover that the Pure Skin Natural Cover and gives a great mattifying cover as well as a lovely peachy complexion!’

Not too shabby


Firstly the packaging of this product is REALLY pretty and I’m a sucker for all things pretty.

I got the shade medium/dark and when I first squeeze it out, it looked a little too light for my skin but I tried it on anyway. It blended well and eventually took to my skin color.

This tinted moisturizer is creamy but not runny and it is very lightweight. It also has a matte finish and didn’t leave my skin greasy and very easy to blend.It has a fruity, peach smell which I really liked.The product lasted on my face for about 3 hours then it started to fade off.

It felt refreshing and cooling when I applied it to my face and didn’t clog up my pores also it’s not expensive.

The product does have a few cons like the fact that it only comes in 2 shades and is not very moisturizing even though it’s created to be a moisturizer.

Still Available?

Tarryn Schoeman

Is this Product still available?

I have looked at just about every Clicks and Dischem Store in Gauteng and KZN and cannot get it?

I have since moved onto the Neutrogena one, but would change back to Essence in a heart beat!

Good for everyday

Sasha Kempen

I tried this product out for everyday moisturising and slight coverage. This product does exactly that. When trying this product out, don’t freak out that it may come out of the tube quite orange. It blends really well onto my skin tone, however I’m not sure if it will be the same for everyone. As far as I remember, there weren’t any other skin tone tints, but the one, which sucks.

It removes light discolouration on your skin, but don’t expect high coverage, as it is just a tint. It is incredibly moisturising and I only apply it once in the morning.

“Feels so good on my skin”

Teresa Wilken

I have a teenage daughter who started to experiment with make-up earlier in this year. Yes…I do know the fear of my daughter looking like a clown. I’ve bought this product at Clicks after one of the consultants in the store advise me on this and this was my daughter’s response: “Mommy, this feels so good on my skin” (and I must add it smells so nice)…Essence is a fantastic product for teenagers and affordable and my daughter use all the skincare products now…

Smells great, its light weight, great for everyday makeup looks. The light coverage allows for everyday wear.
