Tinted moisturizer is one of those products that I don't always think about or wear, but when I find one that I really like, like LORAC ProtecTINT SPF 30 - Oil-Free Tinted Moisturizer in Beach Bronze I must have it at all times!
ProtecTINT has SPF 30, a fantastic dash of color and a great, oil free light moisturizing effect that really fufills all my wishes for a tinted moisturizer.
The texture is that of a light, airy, semi-liquid mousse. It was light to the touch and felt very light and sheer on my skin. It applied evenly with no streaking, running or "balling up" on the skin. It was so light and sheer in fact that it felt like absolutely nothing was on my skin - yet the glow and the nice coverage could be seen on my face...Note: This also worked very well with the LORAC aquaPRIME Oil Free Makeup Primer underneath it.
For more oily skin types, or combination skin like mine, this is a fantastic way to get some light coverage, a healthy bit of color and also protect your skin without worrying about appearing greasy.
What I also liked about this tinted moisturizer is that because of its light smooth texture and great ability to blend seemlessly in the skin, it also worked well with an layer of heavier moisturizer added first, (for those of you with drier skin) or when going into more dry air conditions for a long period of time, like the office or a plane.
I like the range of shades offered, and most women up to about a Gabrielle Union shade will find one that will work for them (but we can always have more *hint hint!:)
If you have a good skintone without much need for heavy concealer, or you just want to take a break from a full foundation, this is an excellent choice- especially since you don't have to worry about adding any sun protection underneath it. - RLB
