My New Favorite No Makeup Makeup!

If you follow me on Instagram (@StorybookBeauty if you don’t!), you’ll know I recently picked this up from the Naruko Boutique in Rowland Heights, CA. It’s a new tinted sunscreen, tinted moisturizer type product that recently came out from Naruko. It really has a host of beneficial properties that I think would work well for a variety of skin types.

I’m really enjoying this sunscreen! It has awesome natural ingredients, plus it’s pretty much an acne treatment in a sunscreen, which I think is fantastic for the hot summer months when I’m literally baking and I tend to break out a lot more.

This really helps to protect my skin from the sun (UVA/UVB Broad spectrum) and the tint, while it doesn’t offer a huge amount of coverage, does actually even my skin tone up quite a bit which I really love because I tend to get really red when it’s super hot (Irish here, hello!). It also includes tea tree within the formula as well as others and this isn’t drying like a lot of tinted acne type treatments can be; on the contrary, it feels very moisturizing and actually leaves my skin midway between dewy and matte. I do think you need a setting powder with this one if you’re getting into the 3 digit heat, but otherwise, it should be fine. A little bit goes a long way even though the bottle seems small and you get a very controlled amount given you can squeeze it out of the small spout. Just go with a little at a time because it’s really runny and it spreads quite well. Less is definitely more when it comes to this one.

I definitely recommend this one to those with combination skin who get oily in the summer months or anyone who battles breakouts any time of the year. This is such a great product and I have been using it pretty much every single day! Plus, it’s super affordable at only $22 USD. Also, this works really well for guys. I made my boyfriend let me apply it on him (much to his annoyance LOL) and it really evened his skin tone out, helped calm breakouts and even though it kind of made his skin look pale at first (he’s way more tan than I am), once it settled into his skin it just made him look really nice and even toned. I really wish I could get him to wear it every day, to be honest!

      I know right! They need to hurry up! Such an amazing company ! When I’m less broke, I will send you a Naruko care package if you like 🙂 Thanks for the idea! I will do that when I have a free chance okay? x

        I think I should drop them an email, you never know. LOL. Awww hun, you’re so kind. I still have to give AJ’s Dad a nudge about all this, it’s just he’s also very busy with car stuff right now so I didn’t want to pester him haha. Oh yes, would love to see your reviews on this, in fact, you should start a tutorial. 🙂

        By the way, I just want to thank you again, my skin really loves the Naruko Night Jelly, saved me twice already from having a bad breakout, it’s amazing!

    Sounds like a great product! Do they have it in other tones? I’m a bit darker than that… To be honest though, I would love to find a proper moisturizer that double as sunscreen. The one I have now is from Olay and is not that great.
    The night jelly you sent me is AMAZING by the way. I can already see a difference in how nice my skin looks in the morning

      Helene, I was just telling Tianna about the Night Jelly too. Awesome. Also, have you tried looking into Korean products, they’re pretty good at BB creams or even moisturizers that come with other skin benefits, like sunscreen. Check out, if you have time.

        Oh yes, they delivery everywhere. 😉 Let me know if you’re planning to buy, I have a discount code here I’m willing to share with you.
