I had read mixed reviews on the Suki tinted active moisturizer, so I decided to try it for myself to help our readers decipher fact from fiction. Upon opening the box, I noticed a "warning box" on the side flap...this peaked my attention as I know Suki is amongst the highest quality, natural products that exist on the market today. The warning states that for proper application, you must read the enclosed application directions included inside the box -- effectively, they printed a bold warning to "read directions before use." This immediately opened my eyes to the previous reviews I had read on this product and right away I began to realize, most of those reviewers likely skipped reading the directions before use, hence their dissatisfying results. So just as I was always taught in school all those years ago, reading the directions before taking action is ALWAYS a good idea...even in the adult world! 

The directions for application are rather simple, but important, because this "foundation-type" product is not applied like any other foundation you've ever applied. In fact, it is kind of awkward at first and I for one felt very silly doing it, but the results were gorgeous so I really don't care how I look in the privacy of my own home while applying this. Here are the actual directions for application:

  • pump 1-2 drops onto the back of your hand

  • use your hands + smooth into the complexion, blending up toward the hairline + downward under the jawbone

  • for fairer complexions – add to your favorite suki® moisturizer, blending together before applying to customize color 

  • for olive to darker complexions – on freshly moisturized skin, apply moderate amount of product to entire face + blend out toward hairline + down past chin + neck for even coverage

  • Is it a bit tricky to use the back of your hands during foundation application? Yes. Is it impossible? Not even close. Is the end result worth the effort of trying something new? Definitely!

    Suki tinted active moisturizer goes on smooth just like their facial lotion, it is lightweight, not oily/greasy, and blends into your skin. I was a bit hesitant to apply it to my face seeing the "oompa loompa" orange coloring of the lotion on the back of my hand, but I hung in with a little faith and amazingly enough, it blended perfectly onto my face! In fact, I didn't even need to adjust the color with additional moisturizer, per the directions. This is by no means a full-coverage foundation, you will not feel it on your face and it is not going to provide coverage for freckles, large blemishes, dark age spots, etc. However, what it DOES do is smooth your skin tone evenly across your entire face, adding a healthy glow and overall look of wellness. The best part is that you are healing your skin rather than damaging it while wearing Suki tinted active is actually contributing to your natural beauty!
