Physician's Formula Organic wear 100% Natural Origin Tinted Moisturizer

I've been using Physicians Formula's Organic Wear 100% Natural Tinted Moisturizer ($12/1.5 oz.) over the past few weeks and I really like it! It's a thin, lightweight moisturizer which comes in four shades: Ivory to Fair, Fair to Light, Light to Natural, and Natural to Tan. I'm pretty pale, and I've found that the Ivory to Fair is just the right shade for me. It evens out my skin tone and provides good coverage without looking mask-y. I'm not sure if the shade range is wide enough to be accommodating to all skin tones, but maybe the fact that the product is sheer/tinted will help each shade work for many skin tones.

The product is entirely formulated with natural ingredients, with about 80% of those ingredients being USDA organic. It is also SPF 15, which is great, and the sunblock in it is mineral rather than chemical, which is even better :) I have copied the full ingredient list below for interested parties:

ACTIVE INGREDIENT: TITANIUM DIOXIDE. INACTIVE INGREDIENTS: CITRUS AURANTIUM DULCIS (ORANGE) FRUIT WATER*, ALCOHOL SD (DENATURED WITH CERTIFIED ORGANIC LAVENDER OIL)*, SIMMONDSIA CHINENSIS (JOJOBA) SEED OIL*, HELIANTHUS ANNUUS (SUNFLOWER) SEED OIL*, PERSEA GRATISSIMA (AVOCADO) OIL*, LECITHIN (SOYBEAN)*, CANNABIS SATIVA SEED OIL*, TALC, TITANIUM DIOXIDE, BUTYROSPERMUM PARKII (SHEA BUTTER)*, OLEA EURPOAEA (OLIVE) FRUIT UNSAPONIFIABLES, GARCINIA INDICA SEED BUTTER, ALGINIC ACID, ALUMINUM HYDROXIDE, CETEARYL ALCOHOL, CETEARYL WHEAT BRAN GLUCOSIDES, GLYCERYL STEARATE SE, HYDRATED SILICA, IRON OXIDE, XANTHAN GUM. *PRODUCED FROM ORGANIC FARMING

Overall I'm really digging this moisturizer - it's relatively cheap, available at most drug stores, 100% natural, 80% organic, and it works really well!

  1. Ooh, Exciting! I don't have a go-to tinted moisturizer; I tried a different Physician's Formula one (the one with crazy spf!) but it looked really greasy on me. Do you find that this dries down nicely? I also have trouble with a lot of drugstore foundation-type products rubbing off where my glasses sit. Do you find that this one tends to stay put all day? Thanks!
