Product Review: Myra E Vitaglow Tinted Facial Moisturizer

On really hot days, I prefer wearing very light makeup as much as possible as the heat will just melt the makeup off my face and I don't want to look like a grease ball when that happens. So when I started reading raves from girltalk and local bloggers, I decided to give Myra TM a try. Though I have also read about some complaints regarding the shimmers, I still gave it a go. And here's what I thought of this product.

What I like:
- It has light coverage and all I need to do is set it with loose powder or a very light dusting of powder foundation and I'm all set.
- It gives my face a healthy glow.
- It doesn't make my face oily but once my face starts to oil up, it looks rather dewy than oily.
- Cheap. Around PHP130 bucks or so, I forgot the exact figure.
- Locally available.
- Shade Ivory matches my skintone though it gets a tad darker once it oxidizes on me.
- Claims to have minerals and has Vitamin E.
- It has SPF 15 which is pretty okay.
- Dries to a somewhat matte finish but the shimmers are very evident.

What I don't like:
- The shimmers!!! I like it on my cheeks but not on my entire face.
- Gave me whiteheads and red spots a couple of zits.
- My face gets itchy a few minutes upon application though I just shrugged it off back then.

Overall rating: 3/5

Will I buy again? No. I stopped using it and when I applied it again earlier today, my face got itchy once again. But if they come up with a formulation without shimmers, maybe I would.

Have you tried this product? Do you like it or do you not? :P

Happy Sunday, super awesome peeps. :P


  1. Oh! Thats so sad! Seems like you have allregic reaction on this product!
    I read Nikki's review about this product and really wsanted to try it

  2. I like Myra E Vitaglow whitening moisturizer. I can live without this item. The shimmers are large (so I don't like it on its own), and when I use it as a base for makeup, my foundation wears off quickly!

  3. Anastacia, yes, I'm thinking it could be the shimmers. :(

    Peaches & pinks, yikes! I wish there aren't any shimmers, maybe more people will like it better. :P

  4. true. the shimmers are annoying. it's also too white for me. :|

  5. Mia, I couldn't agree more. The shimmers bother me. :P

  6. aww too bad you're allergic to it pammy! =( di naman ako bothered sa shimmers...

  7. Crystal, if you don't like shimmers all over your face, please do stay away from this. Haha! :P

    Khymm, lucky you! Too bad it gives a nice glow pa naman. :)

  8. i say no to shimmers too. i was excited when i got this i've read lots of raves but got disappointed when i tried it myself. shimmers are way tooo obvious and the tint just doesn't show on me. it's just like putting big shimmers on my face haha

  9. Joice, I agree. Shimmers are cute for the cheeks but not when they're all over the face. :P
