Review: First Aid Beauty Triple Protection Skin Tint with Goji Berry SPF 30

Hello beauties,

Leading skincare brand, First Aid Beauty aka. FAB is further expanding their makeup range with the launch of their first foundation called Triple Tint*. Now I sense the eye rolls, another skincare brand doing makeup, why? I’m with you sista! I was a sceptic and wasn’t even keen to try it, but I tried it just for you xx

What FAB say about the Triple Tint, “formulated with a blend of powerful antioxidant-rich ingredients, including Goji Berry, Astaxanthin and Vitamin C, and anti-pollution active, Alteromonas Ferment Extract, it shields skin from environmental aggressors while Zinc Oxide filters out harmful UVA and UVB rays.”

The foundation has just hit stores in the US and no confirmed date for Australia. Retails for $34 USD and no AUD price.

Overall Thoughts:

  • Available in 4 shades, fair, light, medium and tan
  • Tan matches me perfectly (yippie!)
  • The packaging and overall concept reminds me of MAC Face and Body but with better ingredients (not that I’m an expert)
  • The packaging is simple and seems practical, however I find it really difficult to squeeze out enough of the foundation
  • I prefer to apply the foundation using a Buffing Brush
  • Its really hard to gauge how much foundation I use as it doesn’t really do drops or pumps- make sense? If I had to make a rough judgment I probably use about the size of 5 cents piece to cover my whole face
  • The foundation is buildable and I would say its anywhere between light to medium coverage, definitely not full coverage
  • The finish is a satin, but I really feel you can mix it up depending on the primer you use
  • On my oily/ combination skin I find the wear really varies… I was wearing it all day out and about and I didn’t really get oily, maybe a bit of oil peaked through after 5 hours. But then while I’ve been wearing it at work- with extreme heating I’ve been getting oily around the 3 to 5 hour mark and my pores look enlarged… Very odd…
  • I’ve used it with a few primers such as Cover FX Blurring Primer and the FAB Coconut Skin Smoothie Priming Moisturizer and the foundation worked well with both.
  • Added bonus it has SPF 30! Woo hoo!
  • Also, I didn’t notice any distinct smell but some people have said they can smell the sunscreen in it…

Apologies for Bae’s hairy arm but I thought it would be easier to see swatches on a fairer arm. From left to right; Fair, Light, Medium and Tan.

The FAB foundation at the 5 hour mark. A bit of my natural oils have peaked through to create a luminous glow.

As you can see its quite an interesting foundation and I’m still trying to figure out how long it lasts on my skin as it really does vary. But overall I quite like it as it creates a beautiful, luminous from within look. I feel this foundation is suitable for combination to dry skin types. If you have oily skin then I’m sorry but I don’t think this is for you.

Also, I would really appreciate if you gave my Facebook page a like, at rachel beauty style. Thank you xx

  1. This foundation seems like it would suit my skin tone but I always get annoyed when there are such small shade ranges. At least these shades are actually different instead of 4 shades of barely different medium like a lot of other brands. Great honest review 🙂

  2. I had a chuckle at the swatch arm. I had a moment of “Um that doesn’t look like Rachel’s arm” before I read properly haha.
    I love the finish of this on you. For me it sounds like something that would be good on weekends but not a work day. Only problem is that none of those shades would match me. I’d have to get fair and light to mix together and who wants to spend twice as much? Shame because it sounds good for my dryer days and it looks fabulous on you!

    1. Haha, Ben is a very good sport! The shade range is disappointing. I sometimes mix too shades because I have them, not because I would ever by too shades. I really need to get those Cover FX drops to use with all my foundations.

  3. This looks like a really nice foundation, love the products which gives luminosity to the skin. The finish is just so beautiful on you.

  4. Oooo this looks and sounds like such a beautiful foundation! Shame it only comes in 4 shades as I am pretty sure I would be between fair and light but hopefully they release more colours x

  5. I think I need to try this foundation. The bottle does remind me of MAC face and body. I am a deeper skintone (similar to yours) so it will be interesting to see how this goes on my skintone.

    Great review Rachel!

  6. First of all I am so so jealous of your amazing skin! What’s your secret? I have never heard of this foundation but it seems like it has a lovely finish. I also love my Clarins foundation which also has SPF in it and is similar to this one (you should give it a try). Thanks for sharing!

  7. You always look so stunning! Skin is perfection! This foundation sounds pretty nice and I think the formula would work on my skin, but I’m so picky with shades. I doubt any of the 4 shades would work for me unless I mixed it up. Lucky you had a the perfect match! x
