I often get asked to recommend tinted moisturizers during the summer months. I use them daily myself and always with an SPF.


Tinted SPF moisturizers are a great alternative to heavy makeup, like thick foundations or heavy powders while also protecting your face from the damaging sun rays. Tinted moisturizer with SPF are perfect for those summer days and nights. Most of these products contain some form of sunscreen, which saves us time in an often tedious beauty routine. It can save a little money as well, because you actually get 3 products all in 1. Sunblock shields from sun damage, the moisturizer helps keep skin hydrated, or balanced if you are one of those with oily or combination skin. Finally, we get to the fun part; you still get a touch of colour without looking like you are wearing makeup. This product has converted even the most makeup obsessed into believing that “less” is quite often “more.” Tinted moisturizers are perfect for summer months when you want to look great without clogging pores with makeup (and sweat). They work in winter months to keep skin hydrated. This product is perfect for travel, since you don’t have to pack so many other beauty products.


Plus, these tinted moisturizers feel light and airy on your face! Handy to pop on your face daily! Here I listed some great tinted moisturizers to help guide you to purchasing the right moisturizer.
