Most Helpful Positive Review Glowing Skin
I really liked this new Smashbox "Halo Tinted Moisturizer". I received the shade "Light Medium" and was kind of scared because it looked almost to dark and orange for me. I'm usually light but since it's the summer got somewhat of a tan, nothing crazy. Product was easy to squeeze out just the right amount that you would want to use. Seemed thick at first but as I applied with my fingers it blended into my skin nicely and the color buffed right into my skin with out looking to dark or orange. The best part is the "glow" it gives your skin!!! Really impressed with the glow factor! The only thing I felt I had a problem with was the application. I had to go in with a beauty blender sprayed with setting spray because after using my fingers it left like streak marks. I didn't mind going over it and setting it with the beauty blender. I felt I got a light, natural coverage ..which is what I prefer with the glow factor of course! Definitely felt nice and hydrated on my skin and didn't cause any breakouts throughout the day and taking off at night. I could see how they say it's primer infused because it does act like a primer in blurring imperfections and pores. You definitely can build up the coverage I feel. This tinted moisturizer give my healthy looking glowing skin and I would recommend it if u are looking for something not to heavy and natural looking plus quick and easy to apply. It did last all day. It did however transfer on to the inside of my mask 😷 I like that it has Hyaluronic acid, Niacinamide and gold & peptides in it too!!Plus it's vegan, cruelty-free and has SPF 25! I did receive this complementary to try from Influenster for my honest review. #complementary #influencer @smashboxcosmetics #haloskin ￼￼￼
Most Helpful Critical Review Great coverage, but emphasizes textured skin
I want to preface this by saying that I have dry skin and have a full skincare routine that includes exfoliation, and moisturizing is a huge part of my routine as well. Generally speaking, foundations I own don't emphasize my textured areas.
I exfoliated and moisturized my skin for this tinted moisturizer. It goes on very nice, not too liquid and not too sheer. I absolutely love how it dries down to feel skin like. You can't even tell it's there! This is great for wearing under a mask, as it is essentially transfer proof.
The coverage is more than that of most other tinted moisturizers, say, Laura Mercier's. However, I'm sad to say it emphasizes my textured skin. It gathered around areas of my nose, mouth, and eyebrows. Areas I didn't realize were textured. I don't have perfect skin by any means, and it's quite dry year round. This tinted moisturizer seemed to make my skin drier than usual after I washed it off at night, though.
Maybe if you have oilier skin it would be a great fit for you, but for my dry skin, it unfortunately doesn't work.
Reviewed by 305 customers It's too dry to smooth out
danatoo from Florida
I disliked this so much, I returned it. It's very thick even after doing my best to shake it up.
Could not imagine that anyone would like it.
Perfect for every day!
Fladebbie from Florida
I am 60 years old and I have tried several foundations but as I'm an active person I don't wanna spend a lot of time putting on make up before I walk out the door. I save that for special occasions. This is the perfect foundation for me as I can just apply this, some blush, little bit eyeshadow for color then some lipstick and walk out the door. I save regular foundations for an evening out only. This is a perfect every day foundation whether you're going grocery shopping, to the gym or just hanging out with friends.
I will miss BB Cream...
miss grace from WA
I am super disappointed that BB Cream is discontinued. I am not sure I LOVE this product as its replacement. It is just not 'creamy' enough for me.
Jerseylaa from IL
I've been searching for a new product ever since Bare Minerals changed the formula on their tinted moisturizer, and this is it. It's light weight , blends well, medium coverage, not oily or tacky........perfect for someone who isn't into heavy foundations. Color match was a little tricky though.
kay from Murfreesboro, TN
This tinted moisturizer has perfect coverage- not sheer, not cakey, just a nice light medium coverage for everyday wear. I have very dehydrated, dry skin that can really limit my foundation choice sometimes but this does not enhance my dry patches. I do use my serum and moisturizer before application since I am very dry. I find applying this with my fingers works the best for a smooth streak free application. I am a NC20 and the shade light matches perfectly. I have tried so many tinted moisturizers and foundations before this one looking for 'my' foundation and I think after 2 weeks of testing this one out I can finally rest. Please don't stop making this foundation!
I like but too dark
Ceci from San Jose California
I usually use medium but this one is too dark and orange for me 😔 Now I have to get a different shade.
Makeup from Town
I really like this tinted moisturizer. I have oily skin but this works for me! I use revolution mattifying primer underneath and then just blend this on with my fingers. It blends so nicely without steaks and gives just the right amount of coverage. I chose the shade fair and it's perfect for me. I add Stila convertible color blush on my cheeks and it blends in so flawlessly with this tinted moisturizer. I couldn't be happier with this product!
MrsH_11 from Texas
I have Oily/combo, acne prone skin with a lot of hyperpigmentation and I find this gives me light/medium coverage. It's not too hydrating, also not mattifying. I love wearing this on the weekend with a powder foundation and it gives me the perfect coverage and it still feels lightweight. I find dark neutral is the closest shade to me. For reference, Fenty foundations 410, Dior backstage 5w, Nars soft matte Macao and Maybelline Fit me 340. Just to name a few. I'm happy with my purchase.
Just put it on
Beeeeee from San Bruno
Wow. Really nice dewy, just the right amount of coverage. No real smell. I'm honestly surprised how much I like this as I wasn't expecting any coverage and I have a little redness to my cheeks. It covers great and works well with concealer. It still held its dew after powdering. Hopefully they hang onto this formula!
EXACTLY WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR !
Rebecca from CT
This is exactly what I was looking for. Perfect in between of moisturizer and foundation. The perfect amount of coverage, lightweight and stays all day. I LOVE THIS PRODUCT
theohemm_dee from Missouri City, TX
Perfect product for those who are new to makeup or looking for an alternative to foundation. Great coverage and went on very smoothly. I loved that it easily blended with my other products! I looked like I had on foundation but I didn't FEEL like it! This is definitely now in my makeup arsenal for sure
courtneya4365 from Knoxville, TN
Very smooth application with a dewy finish. Medium to full coverage. I prefer full coverage so the only downside is having to reapply to really keep it where I like it. Overall, great product.
alimieke from Kissimmee, FL
This product was nice and gave a healthy glow. I'm looking forward to continuing to use this in my every day routine.

Halo Healthy Glow Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 25 Honest Review
I definitely fell in love with this Tinted Moisturizer! Not only does it have a light-coverage tint & moisturize your skin just a bit, but also it has SPF 25 (sunscreen) which is EXTREMELY important to have on your face. I'm the type of person who hates putting on too much products on my face, because it causes my skin to break-out. But this product is super lightweight & it has that glow, natural finish. It's very well worth if you're just wanting a quick & natural look. It's very liquid so it's super easy to blend/spread onto your skin.
Natural Look and Feel
riannah from Crowley, TX
As a person who doesn't wear makeup much especially foundation, this has been a game changer to me. I love that I get the even skin tone look and moisturizer all in one. It glides on super easy and melts right into my skin for something barely noticeable and light weight. I don't use this on the daily, but when I want to feel more bright and fresh faced it's there ready for me.
not my favorite
alexcassell from Timonium , MD
Was really hoping this would be more like a BB cream but didn't provide enough coverage for me. It is definitely a high glow product. It is on the dewier/wet side and didn't layer well. Any of the highlight was easily covered with product.￼
destanec from San Jacinto, CA
This product is an absolute perfect color match for me. As a person who has had to wear the same foundation and brand for the last four years, simply because it matched my skin tone perfectly, this was a game changer.
Not only does it moisturize my skin beautifully, it looks soooo natural. If you want that gorgeous pregnancy glow without the baby bump, this is perfect for you!
I have already order me a bottle of this because I do not want to run out. It looks great in photos and it lasts me all day.
My biggest piece of advice is shake well and set with a setting powder. Smashbox Halo Healthy Glow Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 25
moisturizing but on the thicker side
dolcevita256 from Arlington, VA
I like the product but the color was too dark for me. I struggle with matching my makeup and usually go with K beauty BB creams because they match my half Asian skin tone. This one was moisturizing but thick. It gives a little more coverage than most, which is good depending on your beauty needs.
khadejahkhadejah from Marina Dl Rey, CA
I cannot tell a lie this product is revolutionary for my dry skin. It melts right in and you can use it as sunscreen or as a moisturizer without priming. I went on a 2.5 week road trip and only brought this instead of foundation
love the shade
karishmak3 from Edison, NJ
Love that this has spf. Good for light coverage without any weight. Gives an instant glow. I would not use purely for under Eyes as I probably would need a real concealer but doe a quick fix, it may help adding a tint. Spreads well but not too oily which I really like. Pretty hydrating primer like consistency. Comes in variety of shades
not my fav product
reaganb14 from Dallas, TX
Not the worst but not the best, I wish it rubbed in a little better in my skin absorbed it better, looks more like a matte finish than dewy on me￼
Your skin but better!
koredaaa from Stafford, VA
I definitely loved this tinted moisturizer! It is lightweight but still gives a little bit of coverage for dark marks and/or scars. It also adds a healthy glow to the skin and did well on my combination skin.
great summer foundation
gabrielleb37 from Brooklyn, NY
This is a great summer foundation, it's light and provides some coverage with SPF. The light neutral is a little more warm toned than what is shown on the website.
dewy and perfect
erikabf450 from San Francisco, CA
I am absolutely obsessed with this tinted moisturizer because of the formula and finish. It's not full coverage but I feel like this is more coverage than most tinted moisturizers. It's not too Dewey but just the right amount. If you are into the look of your skin but better this is perfect for you. If you are into full coverage and or matte, this isn't for you. I would a thousand percent recommend this to anyone and everyone. This definitely amazing for the no makeup look and my skin was hydrated and dewy. I was glowing!
LIGHT WEIGHT & DEWY
xxxochitl from Van nuys , CA
If you're looking to move away from that matte finish and a more natural look, this is a great start. It leaves your face dewy and natural. It's light weight while still providing just enough coverage to give an even skin tone. What's best is, a lil goes a long way which is a big plus for me when I'm going for a natural look.
