5 Tinted Moisturisers That Life Wouldn’t Be The Same Without

The perfect product for sunny weather.

Does anyone remember Benefit Cosmetic’s tinted moisturiser, You Rebel? It’s a beauty product that’s engraved in my brain, mainly because my mam tried to force me to wear that, instead of layers and layers of caked foundation when I first branched into the big bad world of beauty. Looking back, I would have been wise to listen to her, but since then, I’ve always been more of a medium to full coverage gal. I had sworn off tinted moisturiser, adamant that it wasn’t for me. That is, until last summer.

I decided it was time to try out tinted moisturiser on my fake-tanned face again. Partly, for the sake of my skin, and partly because I wanted extra time in bed each morning. Also, I was curious to see if it would give me gorgeous glowy skin. Since then, I’m still more of a (medium/) full coverage gal, but I’m no longer sworn off tinted moisturisers. In fact, there are a number of them that I am OBSESSED with, and some on my must-buy list. Although some are technically light coverage foundations, they all focus more so on good ingredients for your skin rather than covering up every freckle and blemish on your face.

IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50

Possibly the holy grail of tinted moisturiser. Because while it’s packed with the benefits of a tinted moisturiser, it gives that stunning finish that a fabulous foundation does. It’s hydrating, anti-ageing, and has an SPF 50, all while providing flawless-looking coverage that won’t crease or crack. Plus, the formula is packed with collagen, peptides, niacin, hyaluronic acid, antioxidants and vitamins. Could we ask for much more? Nah, I don’t think so. Shop here.
