Estelle and Thild is one of the best brands that feature organic, natural, non-toxic ingredients in their skincare products. And it's from Sweden. While a small country, in recent few years I definitely see that Sweden is following the organic food and skincare trends. There are more and more imported products available here, although not as varied as those in the USA when it comes to brands and budgets, it's still better than nothing. However, Estelle and Thild is a local brand from Stockholm, which you can easily order online, or buy in local pharmacies or makeup stores if you live in Sweden.
The first one I decided to try is the All in One Tinted Moisturizer. I don't have particular skin problems so I don't always want to wear full coverage foundation. (Not to mention I still haven't found the right shade for myself yet). This moisturizer with a bit sheer coverage is just perfect for me.

Although I normally prefer glass bottle to plastic one, I found this one light and convenient to travel with. It's not slippery so it's easy to hold and apply. The pump works perfectly so the liquid has less contact with the air to keep it fresh longer. It is also easy to control the amount you apply on your face.
It feels silky and light on my skin. I usually feel a bit heavy when I use foundation. It's available in two shades: light and medium. I used the light shade and it works alright. It's only sheer coverage, so my skin color is not altered but skin texture is smoother. It also smells nice from the rose water. I normally try to use fragrance-free products, but those usually smell a bit weird. So recently I started to use some products that add natural fragrance such as from essential oil or floral water as the flavor. Believe me, that makes your skin care or make up routine more enjoyable. 😉
It's the first product from Estelle&Thild I tried, and I definitely fell in love with it. I think it would be perfect for summer when you absolutely need something lighter on your face. If you need a sheer coverage for your face, and can find it online or in your local health store, I urge you to try it!
