After many hours of searching my local stores and coming up short, I finally found the clerks at my local drugstore opening boxes of Physician’s Formula Organic Wear! I sat right next to them and bounced on my toes. I swear they thought I was bonkers for being so excited about some new retail makeup coming in.
After waiting for them to unbox, I found they had bonus packs with a tube of Tinted Moisturizer and the Organic Mineral Veil for $14.99. Score One for Bionic Beauty!!
I picked up the Light to Natural color Tinted Moisturizer (TM from here on out…), due to Nenette’s recommendation that shades run a bit light. As soon as I got home, I washed my face and whipped out a fresh foundation sponge. I shook the tube, and shook again to make sure it was blended.
The TM makeup does have a scent, but I quite like it. It’s a trace of tea tree, citrus, and something else “clean”, possibly a bit of herb (basil?). Anyhow, if you do shake it up, it should apply nicely. I adore the coverage this makeup gives, and it does last through the day. SPF 15 helps protect your skin from sun damage. Here’s my sole dislike – after using my cell phone about half way through the day, I wound up with some of the makeup on my phone’s screen. Kinda icky. And it does contain Talc, so if you are allergic, I would beware. With my overly hyper-sensitive I had no reactions, dryness, or itching.

You can buy the Physician’s Formula line online at Drugstore.com (EXCEPT the Tinted Moisturizer. Weird, huh?) or try your local drugstore, Target (mine hardly has any still), Walmart (had very good luck here) or other mass market retailer. The Organic Wear website has a store locater. Prices are around $9-10 a tube. There are great prices at Drugstore.com!
