I love this tinted moisturizer!! I had used it once before and have been out for some time now. I decided to go online and see where I could get more from and I came across LovelySkin.com and decided to order it! I am so happy to have the tinted moisturizer again and I was very happy with the price and quick delivery of the product! Very happy!
fabulous foundation substitute
I enjoy the lighter look and feel of going without foundation. I use primer and this tinted moisturizer. It evens out my skin tone and feels wonderful.
An unexpected discovery!
Let me start by saying that I did not like this product the first time I used it!I purchased it because my favorite Skinceuticals sunscreen/tinted moisturizer ran out, and I was looking for a cheaper, cruelty-free alternative. My skin is combination- more normal to combination, but my t zone is definitely shiny by the end of the day. As usual, I applied my regular daily moisturizer and layered a couple dabs of this over the top, working up the coverage and blending it in with my fingertips. To my great disappointment, my face was an oil slick by midday, and the product was sliding all over the place. I quickly stashed it into my beauty drawer, and swore Id only use it in a pinch for the sun protection. However, Ive recently revisited it, and Ive been pleasantly surprised. The difference lies in the application. Now, I apply it on its own- no moisturizer or primer for a base. It evens, primes, moisturizes, and protects with one easy step. The finish is neither too matte nor too dewy. I would say that slightly oily skin can work with this, but oilier skinned gals may dislike the effect. Theres really only one downside, which is that it doesnt work too well with a setting product over the top. Ive tried to minimize shine with powder, but honestly, it looks better without. Plus, this tends to oxidize a TINY bit, so definitely go with one shade lighter than you think youll need. All in all, its a good, solid product! I would buy it again if The Balm relaunched it with a higher SPF than 18.
Balm Shelter Tinted Moisturizer
Great Product. Provides sheer coverage with SPF protection. Blends well. Can you on its own or under foundation.
