Givenchy Hydra Sparkling Tinted Moisturising Cream

My loyalty to the Givenchy Hydra Sparkling range reaps rewards in terms of maintaining stable healthy skin and my newest purchase has not disappointed.

MY SKIN TYPE: Patches of dry skin + Oily T-zone + Sensitive = HEADACHE

PRODUCT: Givenchy Hydra Sparkling Tinted Luminescence Moisturizing Cream SPF15 PA ++

Packaging: I like the economical tube packaging though it is worth noting that this is definitely a "shake before use" product so it can be a little messy if you are not careful with your squeezing hand.

Texture: This is a runny more liquid formulation than many tinted moisturisers but I happen to favour this type of texture as it applies easily and leaves a feather light finish.

Fragrance: The entire Givenchy Hydra Sparkling range has a light fresh, clean fragrance that quickly disperses after application.

Cost: £26.00

Availability: I bought mine from House of Fraser. I have also seen these in Debenhams, Ecsentual and Harrods too.

Notes: This TM is available in 3 shades and I use the middle ground option #2 labelled "Gold". Quite appropriate really as it imparts such a healthy looking dewy glow that really does add radiance to my lack lustre complexion.

I will certainly buy this again (and again and again).

Evidence: I get a lot of requests for showing the products that I review on myself so here is my mug shot!

I used the Hydra Sparkling TM in the evenings throughout my recent holiday and I liked the effect very much.

Excuse my tan-lines!! I may look rather pensive in the shot above, if you are curious as to what I was looking at, take a look HERE.

I am going to ATTEMPT to do more makeup mug shots for all you beauty product junkies, apologies in advance for the scariness of it all.


  1. The tinted moisturiser looks great on you. Really natural looking. I've been admiring the moisturiser for some time at the shops and have always wondered what it looks like on, so thanks for the pic!

  2. You look good! Not scary at all ;)

    I'm amazed that Givenchy has such a product. I guess there's not much interest in this brand other than fragrances in my part of the world...

  3. gotta love Guerlain! You makeup looks stunningly natural.

  4. I Adore this shot of you which is so swanlike.

  5. This looks like a really nice TM, I'll have to have a look at the paler shade

  6. i am going to try givenchy base makeup one day! all i have is a prisme blush, i really fancy the packaging *lots ov Geees!*
