Where to buy? http://dustygirls.com.au/tinted-earth-cream.html
I’m always on the lookout for a tinted moisturizer to use on a daily basis that won’t clog my pores. Because majority of cosmetics nowadays are really more harmful than beneficial to our skin. Even the BB or CC creams! Kasi I’m really not fond of wearing makeup in the office (ironic!) but still want to look slightly better than bare. That’s why when Dusty Girls Cosmetics from Australia sent me an e-mail if I want to try their natural tinted cream I immediately said YES. Full review up ahead!

“Earth Cream” Natural Tinted Cream for Acne Prone Skin (based from their website)
The base is made from skin soothing oils as well as ingredients especially for Acne prone skin. And no UV filters! Just some natural sun protection that lasts all day. We have chosen a very neutral medium tone shade for our Earth Cream that suits a broad range for skin tones. We invite you to do some research on our ingredients like Nigella Sativa Oil and Manuka Tree Leaf Oil for Acne prone skin. Also on Magnolia Acuminata Extract for soothing and Chaulmoogra Tree Seed Oil for skin repair. We aren’t talking token amounts either, you can see these are way up in our ingredient list. We use non-comedogenic ingredients (fancy way of saying that it doesn’t block pores) to help maintain skin health and natural micas that don’t cake. A time saver with long term benefits for your skin. What’s not to love!
One last thing! You don’t need to use as much as you may be used to with other covering products. It may look dark on your finger, but it rubs in quite clear and simply evens out complexion. Start with less than a pea size amount.
How to Use Dusty Girls Earth Cream
Simply use a pea-sized amount for the whole face and apply with light tapping motion. If you need more coverage, simply add another layer.
Texture is light and airy. Because it is silicone free and lacks the “slip” you might find the texture a bit odd and more challenging to blend. That is why my tip here is to spread and tap lightly.

Thoughts / Review
Can I just say almost perfect? I’ve been using this on a daily basis ever since that SkinMate Shark Oil mishap and it has been a HUGE help in my skin recovery. Not only does it feel so light on my skin, it keeps it clog free. One of the main causes of acne like pimples, whiteheads, and blackheads are clogged pores and using this helped prevent it. It has an SPF of 10, which is not enough for broad daylight use, but sufficient for indoors like the office.
It gives my skin a natural radiance that does not look overly made up. Literally your skin just better. I think this is perfect for girls who really don’t like wearing makeup but just wants to have even toned skin. Ladies, this tinted moisturizer is holy grail material. My only, teensy-weensy qualm about it is since it is fragrance-free, it has a faint smell of all the natural ingredients that is not so pleasant (IMO) but it goes away after a few seconds.
What I like
- All-natural ingredients. Almost every ingredient is beneficial for the skin
- Does not clog pores. Hooray!
- Gives natural barely there coverage to the skin. Makes your skin look better and not made up.
- Lasts all day! No retouching needed.
- A little goes a long way. A pea size is all you need.
What could be improved
- A higher SPF would make me so happy
- I wonder if there is anything they can do to improve it’s scent. Essential oils maybe?
