Something that is frequently talked about in the LoveLula group is both the Madara Moonflower Tinting Fluid and the Madara Hyaluronic Anti-Pollution CC Cream. I’ve been using both of these products for quite some time and I’m a big fan of them both. They’re very similar products so I thought it would be useful to have a blog post comparing the two.
Madara Hyaluronic Anti-Pollution CC Cream
This product comes in two shades, Light Beige and Medium Beige. I have fair skin so I chose the Light Beige.
This cream comes in a plastic tube with a screw top lid inside a cardboard box. There’s 40ml in the tube.
“Innovation: silky textured, natural SPF15 formula, combining multiple skin care benefits and beautifying action for a flawless, yet natural looking finish. Shade: light beige.
This anti-pollution CC cream corrects all skin tone imperfections, including dullness, redness, sallowness and dark spots. Scientifically proven to shield your skin from urban pollutants to protect skin microbiome, prevent clogged pores and inflammation.
With broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen and deeply hydrating hyaluronic acid, CITY CC is a must-have for every urban dweller.
Apply on its own or over your daily moisturiser. Suitable for all skin types.”
Madara Moonflower Tinting Fluid
Again, this product comes in two shades, Moonflower and Sunflower. Moonflower is for lighter skin with cool/neutral undertones whereas Sunflower is for darker skin tones with warm undertones.
The packaging is a plastic bottle with a pump action top with a plastic lid that fits over the top. It then comes inside a cardboard box. This is a 50ml product.
“MADARA’s divine Moonflower Tinting Fluid evens out skin tone giving your skin the radiance of petals in the moonlight. This lovely light and delicately scented formulation is suitable for all skin types.
MADARA’s innovative tinted moisturiser combines a daytime moisturiser, sunscreen and foundation all in one.
Light moisturising flower and herb facial tinting fluid. Evens out skin tone, giving the face the radiance of petals in the moonlight. Gently moisturises and softens skin. Protects from the effects of the sun (UVA and UVB rays). Combine with your regular day creams for more intensive skin care if required.
Created with love using extracts of St. John’s wort, chamomile, calendula, plantain and algae, all harvested in the Baltic region.”
Differences Between The Products
They are very similar products and both are priced at £27.
The packaging for each product is very different. I much prefer the delivery of the Tinting Fluid because it’s easy to get the right amount (you get used to how many pumps is perfect for you). I think the packaging looks better for the Tinting Fluid too. I’m not a fan of the squeezy tube for the CC Cream. You also get more product of the tinting fluid – an extra 10ml.
The consistencies are very similar but the tinting fluid is ever so slightly lighter.
The CC Cream is on the left and the Tinting Fluid is on the right in the above pictures. When slightly rubbed in, you can see the slight difference in shade.
Once fully rubbed in, you can’t see any difference between the shades on your skin. I would say the only difference between the two is that the Tinting Fluid leaves you with a more dewy finish than the more matte finish of the CC Cream. Also, because the CC Cream is every so slightly thicker, I think the need to apply moisturiser beforehand is more necessary than with the Tinting Fluid.
Which Would I Recommend?
I’d love to make it easy for you and tell you which one I prefer, but honestly, I love them both. As I’ve said above, I prefer the packaging and delivery method of the tinting fluid but I’m enjoying the look of the CC Cream’s matte finish at the moment. I’d recommend them both!
