REVIEW: Mukti Tinted Moisturiser with Sunscreen
Week 5: 100 Days of Pure Living – Skin care
I had been wanting to try Mukti Tinted Moisturiser with sunscreen for quite some time – the very fact that it has sunscreen makes it very appealing, add the tint and you definitely have me on side. Mukti products are sustainable, ethical, 100% vegan, organic and have absolutely zero chemical nasties. Mukti uses fair trade ingredients and avoids using palm oil wherever possible, and their native extracts are sourced locally in Australia and support the Indigenous communities that harvest them.
Mukti Organics are definitely a popular organic skincare choice and I know plenty of loyal customers that simply wouldn’t use anything else.
I actually am lucky enough to live in Maleny where the Mutki store sells direct to the public! I popped in there and picked this delicious tinted moisturiser up for $59.95. Mukti products are also sold at my local co operative and you can find them in beauty spas, organic shops and health food stores.
I applied this tinted moisturiser first thing in the morning before the rest of my makeup. I found I needed at least two good pumps to cover my entire face – the formulation is a little sticky and needed a bit of blending to get an even application. The medium tint was perfect for my skin tone and I only needed a little blush and mascara before I headed off for the day. The scent is pleasant and not over powering. Although I don’t wear a lot of make up, I kept to my regular routine of eye cream, mascara blush and used this product as a moisturiser, sunscreen and tint.
Mukti Tinted Moisturiser with Sunscreen contains SPF 15+ block-out properties with zinc oxide filters for both UVA and UVB rays. This is a physical sunscreen and zinc oxide is the only active ingredient. There are no other actives or chemicals. It is recommended that for outdoor use you apply it every 2 hours.
The 50ml bottle is made from miron glass with a pump top. This special violet glass packaging works by filtering harmful rays of light to protect the concentrated and active formulations in the bottle. Miron glass is also environmentally friendly and is reusable and recyclable.

// the verdict
If you’re looking for a certified organic tinted moisturiser with sunscreen then this is definitely worth trying. I found the medium colour was great for my skin tone, the formulation gave my skin a lovely glow and it provided me with enough coverage for everyday wear. Plus is has all natural sunscreen that isn’t greasy or oily – Winning! If you are a looking for a cleansing lotion I can highly recommend the Mukti Hydrating Cleansing Lotion, check out my review here.
