Faux Glow: SPF-Packed Tinted Moisturizers We Love
The only thing better than tinted moisturizer is tinted moisturizer that also boasts SPF. (In case you forgot, we’re big SPF fans here at Skincare.com.) It’s multi-tasking at its finest—the perfect solution for cutting down a morning skin routine without sacrificing your look. With summer around the corner, there’s no better time than now to switch out a heavy foundation in favor of a lightweight tinted moisturizer. Pick one that’ll hydrate, conceal imperfections, AND protect your skin all at the same time. To save you the hunt, we rounded up four amazing moisturizers that deliver a hint of color, a radiant glow, and most importantly, sun protection!
URBAN DECAY NAKED SKIN BEAUTY BALM
This oil-free formula—available in 3 shades—hydrates, primes, and protects skin with SPF 20. Apply it to skin to minimize the appearance of pores, lines, wrinkles, and redness. Did we mention the light-diffusing spheres that make your skin look like it’s been professionally retouched? Yea, it’s a must-have in your beauty bag.
LANCÔME BIENFAIT TEINTÉ BEAUTY BALM
For a lightweight, tinted formula that contains broad-spectrum SPF 30 to protect skin against harmful UVA/UVB rays, pick this fan-favorite beauty balm by Lancôme. Choose from seven different shades that provide natural, even coverage with vitamin and antioxidant-rich hydration for 24 hours.
VICHY IDÉALIA BB CREAM
This SPF 25 formula—enriched with naturally-derived kombucha, antioxidant vitamin E, and Vichy Thermal Spa Water—evens and enhances the skin’s tone while helping protect it against skin-aging environmental factors. Skin will be left with a luminous finish thanks to illuminating pearl pigments, and feel moisturized and smoothed.
MAYBELLINE DREAM FRESH BB
We love this BB cream for a slew of reasons, of which include its stellar ability to blur imperfections, brighten and even the skin’s tone, provide hydration, and enhance the overall appearance of skin. Best of all, it protects skin with SPF 30 making it a one-step wonder for a good skin day, every day.
