The past few weeks I have been into using tinted moisturizers as a base instead of a heavier foundation. My skin has been fairly decent (minus a few breakouts) so I have been enjoying using something more fresh and light on my skin. I thought that I would share the two that I have been using, and loving!
“Cooling & hydrating. Sheer tinted water-based gel. Apply as you would a moisturizer & pat into skin.”
I really like this product. I apply it with my fingers in the mornings. Because it’s so hydrating, and because I have combo/oily skin, I don’t usually apply a moisturizer under this. It’s perfect for quick makeup in the mornings. And, it really does feel cooling to the skin when applied, which feels really really nice. I do find myself having to use blotting papers throughout the day, but that’s normal for me anyway. This makes my skin look even but I do need to spot conceal because the coverage is extremely light. I purchased this at Shoppers Drug Mart.
“A light-weight formula with a hint of colour for shine-free, velvety coverage.”
I have been really enjoying this one as well. The coverage is very light (as with the Pixi tint), if you have lots of redness or anything you are trying to conceal, this won’t be for you. I use my fingers or a buffing brush to apply this and it makes my skin look nice and even. I don’t know if I would say it makes my skin matte because, as with the Pixi tinted moisturizer, I find myself having to use blotting papers throughout the day. But again, that’s normal.
If you are looking for a light base, I suggest trying one of these products out. As I said above, the coverage is extremely sheer, but they make my skin look healthy and fresh. It has been a nice, refreshing change from heavier foundations and I can definitely see myself continuing to use these throughout the spring and summer as well. As long as my skin doesn’t start to act up.
Have you tried these tints? What did you think of them? Do you have a favourite tinted moisturizer? I would love to try more!
Thanks for reading! I hope you all have a wonderful day today!
